Inheritance Fund VIA ATM Swift Card

Yet another phishing attempt – this time, an ATM card with 5 million on it! That would take me 28 years withdrawing $500 per day to get all the money, and that’s not accounting for any interest that would accumulate over the years : ) Scam is posted below.

(RESOLUTIONPANEL ON CONTRACT PAYMENT)

ATTN:

IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF YOUR INHERITANCE FUND VIA ATM SWIFT CARD.

In close consultation with the World Bank, IMF and the European Union (EU), this is to notify you of your enlistment as a beneficiary of a recent Debt Management and Settlement Forum organized on the status of global arrangement to have your beneficiary fund settled once and for all. Of course, In the hope that you must have been aware of the past financial leakages in the European foreign inheritance payment system, and frustrations associated there from in your last attempt to claim the fund, wherein fund beneficiaries (like your self) was subjected to unnecessary bureaucratic bottlenecks in lieu of claiming funds due them.

The World Body, having solicited and received the cooperation of Nigerian Presidency, in harmonizing the sequence of payments of your INHERITANCE FUND VIA ATM SWIFT CARD, have discovered from records of outstanding foreign inheritance fund beneficiaries due them, that your name and payment has been with held and remain unpaid as a result of such bottleneck. On the prompting of this finding, I wish to officially notify you that Already, a total amount of US$500 Million has been provided to the bank for this purpose and it is on first come first serve. With this arrangement, I wish to inform you that AFRIBANK PLC has been instructed to issue in your name an ATM Cash Card with the valued amount of US$5.3M. In sending the INHERITANCE FUND VIA ATM SWIFT CARD to you, please note that it is without Prejudice to your original inheritance sum. Rather, it is a stop-gap payment arrangement put in place by the World Body to on the one hand ensure that you receive part of your fund, while on the other hand ensure that the process is smooth and without any form of stress whatsoever, whereas a comprehensive arrangement shall be made in future to pay off the remaining fund due you.

However, we are worried with the counter information received from one Mr. Fred Smith, purporting to be from your directive, with express instruction to activate the ATM Cash Card for release of fund to his name a bank account in the “Cayman Islands” Obviously, we are hesitant to honor this instruction as it were, and would request that you clarify same upon your contact with AFRIBANK PLC . In addition to that, you should provide the bank with the following details to forestall any mistake of issuing the ATM Card with the wrong information already submitted by Mr. Fred Smith. The only way to withdraw funds is by using this ATM card.

(1) Your full names, address, phone, fax and Cell numbers (up to date) for ease of contact
(2) Beneficiary name for activation of your ATM CARD.
(3) Social Security Number

Believing that this INHERITANCE FUND VIA ATM SWIFT CARD will suit your condition and expectations, we will therefore request for your expedited response to avoid any more delay. Your response should be directed to AFRIBANK NIGERIA , Attention: Mrs.Caro Ogo ; Deputy General Manager through her official email address:atmpayment_center2005@yahoo.fr Your file reference code for your payment is ATM/LAG/NG11985688001and should be quoted in your contact mail to the bank otherwise the bank will not recognize/process your ATM Swift Payment.

    These people have the odasity to use a government logo and do not even realise that any communication from the government is from a “*.gov” email adress! People don’t fall for this I have received many different scam emails and you usually can check the validity with these little details like the adress, spelling and made up names that is sometimes laughable or of some celebrity name with a small difference in spelling! Emails that has a Nigerian adress in it is usually a scam too. Be vigilant!

    I have also get scam emails,both from Ghana,Nigeria,Malysia and United States.It all the same about a very hug amount of money they said belong to me,but in the end they all want me to pay for diffrent document i will be needed to get to the money. I was that stupid that i was paying a little bit of money untill i find out it was scammers. When you get a mail that seams to be to good to be true. It moste are scammers. Just delete all of that mails or make joke with that persons,but never send any money to them.They always get back to you with some new payment and they only go on without you getting anything / Katarina

    These are all fake scams !
    Don’t pay any money over, as you will lose it.
    Next time they email you, tell them that you are reporting them to authorities for fraud.

    Good Luck

    Hello, I live In Ky,
    I have been contacted by a guy named Collin Peter. He has told me that I have 1,000,000,00. that I will recieve. And all I needed to do is send them all the info they wanted. an which included a Scan of my I.D. and I told them I just couldn’t do it. they wanted me to send them 650.00 to them for insurance an del. of the package. I then told them I couldnt afford to pay the amount. Just to see what they would say. Then they procieved to say that I could pay half of what they needed which was 325.00 an then after I got my package I could pay the other half of the money. So I have sent a copy of all that was written to me to the UPS courrier where they said they were at. with the names of both parties. and I am now waiting to hear back from the,.. But don’t fall for this: who is goin to send you 1,000,000.00 for 650.00 … an if they had your families name for an inheiritance wouldnt they have your name also as next of kin. how else would they know how to find you on the net?? but I wish these ppl could be shut down. heck if only a hacker would find them on the net they could do more than our police an other form of authorities. iT’S A Shame that they are able to steal from ppl an not be put in prison. its the same as computer crimes. an ppl that get caught doin so go to prison. so come on plz do something about this…

    I am Greg from USA.

    I had several experiences as regards the issue of fund claims and fell to a lot of wrong hands. I later gave up hope and thought it was a lost battle after I had spend huge sums of dollars to fraudsters. Finally, I met the right person who introduced me to a lady working with government that paid me.

    I advise you to avoid dealing with anybody and travel and work out things yourself. Stop falling into wrong hands!!! there are lots of impostors out there!!!!

    For more advise on how to go about your own claims leave a comment.

    Good luck!

    ——- Desearía me explicaran de que se trata , me parece que esto es un engaño para sacarle dinero a la gente , dado que si es cierto que recibí una herencia de $ 11.000.000 ,00 millones de dolares y para poder recibirlos tengo que depositar $ 145,00 dolares para que me acrediten y me envién una tarjeta ATM porqué no toman el dinero de esa herencia y es más les doy el 25% de la herencia y envienme la tarjeta sin poner un solo $ dolar . Es más si veo que se me efectua el pago de mi herencia verdaderamente les doy o dono a entidades pobres la mitad y aun más si se requiere .
