This one fails on so many levels. Still, I’m glad that the Manchester employee is keen to apologise for his lack of English.






I am Richard Wong a staff of one of highly reputable financial institution here in Manchester, United Kingdom, and I am the head of operation. I am pleased to get across to you for a very urgent and profitable deal which I believe will profit both of us on completion. I contacted you after a careful thought that you might be capable of handling this business transaction which is explained below. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. I contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication.

The sum of (84,000,000.00 Million British Pounds), has been floating as unclaimed since 2000 in my bank as all efforts to get across the relatives of our client who deposited the money have hit the stones. There was this immigrant by name Mr. Andreas schranner, property magnate who was based in the U.K, who happens to be one of our clients. On the 25Th of July 2000, Mr. Andreas Schranner, his wife Maria , their daughter Andrea Eich, her husband Christian, and their children katharina and maximilian all died in the air France concord plane crash bound for New York in their plan for a world cruise, see the link for more details of the plane crash

The issues at hand is that late Andreas Schranner did not declare any next of kin/beneficiary in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. What bothers me most is according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 15 years the funds will be revert to the ownership of the British government if nobody applies to claim the funds, Against this scenery, I have all the information needed to claim these funds and I want to present you to the bank as the beneficiary to the deposit. There is no risk involved in this matter as I hold the key to the funds and we are going to adopt a legitimate method as I have all paper works to make you the beneficiary to the funds.

I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should act swiftly on this. Please pardon any writing mistakes.

I await your prompt reply on this.

Kind regards
Richard Wong

    I have received similar e-mails, usually from Nigeria, in the US. I don’t know how dumb they think people are! My favorite is that I have won a lottery somewhere outside the US. They must not know that it is considered illegal for a US citizen to participate in a foreign lotter!


    • Sorry, I read that as a town called “Nigeria in the US” at first! I do keep winning lotteries. Apparently there are a lot of charitable firms who run them without even asking me to buy in. No doubt philanthropy at its best!
