Email Scam

Hi all

Please be wary of this email scan from Lauran 999:

Pls, my sincere apology if this communication don’t meet your personal ethics, I have to contact you via this medium because I desperately need to get in touch with someone as you.I anticipated that this correspondence might come as a surprise to you because we don’t know each others but since it is widely said that the connection between a man and his millions is another man, I am here with a proposition that is ordained to connect us to our destiny. Now, someone I presumed to be your relative because of the similarities in your last names who was an investor with our bank but died in a plane crash years back has just come to the limelight in our bank because since 2005 that he died his portfolio and investment worth of millions Pounds has not touch because no name next-of-kin was found in his bio-data form, now, this investment has generated an accrued interest to the amount of 1.3 Million British Pounds because he was operating a domiciliary pounds account. The bank management has therefore authorized me as the Associate Professor of Accounting and Finance of our Bank to locate any living relative of this investor so that the funds can be paid to the family of the late investor who was from your country in line with the banking ethics & policies as stipulated by IMF. I came to you because you share the same surname with the investor, I will simply nominate & empowered you with all the relevant information(s) and documentations to enable you claim the money officially. legally and legitimately, if I don’t do this and inform the bank I cannot locate any relative of the investor the funds will be revert/re-circle into the bank treasury as unclaimed monies and people that know nothing about the source of the funds will spend it that is the irony of the banking industry which is purely aberrational. Contact me immediately you received this email with your most direct telephone line using my private email address stated below so that I can call and/or furnish you with all the details (paul_conan13(at)

And I received this.

I received and reported to viki. It’s not the first time. They create accounts just to send this kind of messages… Maybe you have seen before some in your inbox or spam folder from your e-mail account.
