I can just hear the pipes

I received the following in my Yahoo message inbox today. After getting such messages from the Middle East and Africa, it's refreshing to see that the Scots now want to play this con game.
Mr. Cliff Robson
Royal Bank of Scotland
UK.

Hello,

Do accept my sincere apology if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I will introduce myself as Mr. Cliff Robson, a senior executive in the Accounts Department of the above Bank here in United Kingdom. One of our accounts with a credit balance of USD15, 000,000 (Fifteen Million United States Dollars) has been dormant and has not been operated for the past 4 years.

From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account, a Foreigner by name Mr. Robert Chapman died in August 2000 and since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because he did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. Also Information from the Immigration states that he was also single on entry into UK.

I have secretly collected all information relating to this account and the funds and I thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin to the deceased so that this fund can be released to you after due processes have been followed. This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from any fraudulent act. On your indication of interest, please get back to me through my personal email address or call me on my private phone number.

Regards,

Cliff Robson
Royal Bank of Scotland

UK
Now that's what I call real class. I mean, he even says I can call him on his private phone number. Wait... wait... Hey, just what is your private number, Mr. Robson? No matter. You'll forgive me if I elect to send my personal representative to deal with you in this matter. His name is Bond. James Bond. And he has a license to kill con artists like you.

Have a nice day.

  1. Hahaha! James Bond - and he has a license to kill con artists like you; this really made my morning! Thank you.
    I had just received a similar scam message, and; I've been playing along.
    The representative of the deceased is supposedly a Dr. Ben Adams of Nigeria.
    I told him I only had $265 in my account.
    Although disappointed with this paltry sum, he still jumped right in....
    What some guys will do for that amount of green!
