See that bright green after the return e-mail address? In the original e-mail, it says “see details.” When you click on it, you can see that the sender has nothing to do with aol, or with aol security. I forward these to the aol spam division, but I fear for those who click on the hypertext and enter details that can help some scamming con artist steal their identity or access financial accounts.
I am? That’s news to me . . . and to my husband, LOL!

Greetings to you and your family, I am the manager of bill and exchange in THE
BANK, I have a business of 5.5 Million
United State Dollars to be transfer to your account for investment in your
country, if you are ready to assist me get
back to me, I will give you full details on how the fund will be transfer to
Be rest assured that everything will be handled confidentially because, this is
a great opportunity we cannot afford to
miss, as it will make our family profit a lot.
It has been 6 years go, that most of the greedy African Politicians used our
bank to launder money overseas through the
help of their Political advisers.
Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores of Africa were gold
and oil money that was supposed to have
been used to develop the continent.
The Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign
accounts so I also used the opportunity to
divert part of the fund worth five million five hundred united state dollars I
told you about and I am aware that there
is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for
such transfers of fund at that particle
time were closed after transfer.
I am the account officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that
they were using me to succeed in their
greedy act, I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and
no one cared to ask me for the money
was too much for them to control, as I am sending this message to you, I was
able to divert five point five Millions
Dollars ($5.5M) which is in an escrow transit account belonging to no one in the
bank, and now my bank is very anxious
to know the real beneficiary of the funds is for they have made a lot of profits
with the fund.
It has been more than five years ago and most of the politicians are no longer
in power again and they don’t use our
bank to transfer funds overseas anymore since their tenure had expired.
The $5.5 Million United State Dollars has been lying in the bank as unclaimed
fund and i will soon retire from the bank
immediately the fund is transfer into your account over there.
Immediately the fund has been successfully transfer into your account i will
come to your country for the sharing of the
fund, the fund will be shared 50% for me and 40% for you, and the other 10% for
the orphanages home and poor with
Please know that there is no one that is going to question you about the fund if
you will comply with me and follow my
instruction which will help us a lot to achieve this goal for everything is well
Please indicate your interest in this transaction my replying back and if you
are not interested do not waste your time
to reply kindly delete my message from your box ok.
Waiting to hear from you soon.

I am not expecting any delivery – especially as Intlxpatr, LOL. Warning, when you receive notices like these, do not click anything, except the SPAM button!
I received this three times this morning, in my Intlxpatr mail account. Trust me, Intlxpatr never had an NBK account, not as Intlxpatr. If you get this message, delete. It is a scam:
This was in my mailbox this morning, from a name I recognize. Fortunately, I have heard of this scam before – often the name used is that of a family member. The scammer captures someone’s e-mail and use it to contact all contacts with this message. Of course, the real individual has not been mugged, has all his cash and is doing fine, while we wire money to the scammer. NOT!
I hope you don’t take offense in my sudden approach for help. I took a
trip this week to Limassol, Cyprus and was attacked and robbed. My
belongings including my cash, credit card and cell phones were all
stolen. I’ve made contact with my bank but the best they can do is to
mail me a new card which will take 7 working days to arrive here, am
currently concluding my documentation at the embassy so i can fly out.
I need you to lend me some funds to settle some bills.
Please let me know if you can assist me in anyway so i can forward you
details to effect a transfer. Waiting for your mail.
I don’t know if you have noticed, but I don’t even bother posting most of these scam letters any more, because they all get to look alike. This one is a little different, and LOL, they mention the “only $153. fee” right up front for my $500,000 very large charitable sum that they want to send to me . . .
Peace Be Unto you
