I can hardly wait to tell you about it. Finally there is a new version of the Nigerian scam. It is quite different from the ones that have been making the rounds.
In fact this one claims to be from a bank which is in possession of funds that belonged to a passenger that was killed in an airplane crash. The money was placed in an account to be used for future investment and his family is not aware of the situation.
In the two years since the airplane crash, no one has claimed the funds. The e-mail states that the client was a foreign national and the bank is looking for someone it can identify as the next of kin of the deceased. So, if you are going to lie, then lie big-time because $17 million will be transferred into your bank account and you can keep 35 percent of it.
Someone from the Overseas Chamber of Commerce has recommended you personally as the person who would cooperate in this scheme.
See what I mean? This is a more creative version of the Nigerian scams.
