Subject: INHERITANCE FUND PAYMENT.


Mr. Peter Giggs,
20 Park Road,
Bristol BS 25LJ,
England.

Attn: - Beneficiary.

We wish to notify you again that you were listed as a beneficiary to the total sum of £4,600,000.00GBP (Four million Six hundred thousand British pounds) in the intent of the deceased (name now withheld since this is our second letter to you) We contacted you because you bear the surname identity and therefore can present you as the beneficiary to the inheritance since there is no written will. Our legal services aim to provide our private clients with a complete service.

We are happy to prepare wills, set-up and administer Trusts, carry out the administration of estates and prepare and administer powers of attorney. All the papers will be processed in your acceptance. In your acceptance of this deal, we request that you kindly forward to us your letter of acceptance; your current telephone and fax numbers and a forwarding address to enable us file necessary documents at our high court probate division for the release of this sum of money.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Peter Giggs.

This scam is so lame.
They claim I have the same surname, yet don't address me Mr. (Name).
AND, it is sent to multiple undisclosed recipients.

I replied with this ;-}

My name is Youshould Gofukurself.
Who died?
My great uncle Whydonu Gofukurself?

Fishing for phishers and I got a bite.
reeeerrr reeeerrr I'll real him in slow ;-}

Scam phone numbers in the United Kingdom (+44):

If you receive any email that mentions a UK phone number starting with +4470, it is almost guaranteed to be a scam. Usually the presence of a +44 70 number in a 419 scam email means you're dealing with criminals based in Nigeria. Do not reply to such emails!

The scammer most likely is NOT based in the UK. +44 70 numbers belong to international call forwarding services. These services make it possible for scammers to hide the fact that they are based in Nigeria or other countries in Africa, while the scam victim will believe they're dealing with someone in the UK. Very few if any legitimate individuals use these numbers. Banks, law offices, immigration officials, etc. never use +4470 numbers. We have not come across any legitimate UK businesses yet that use +44 70 numbers. There only visible user base are scammers in Nigeria and elsewhere. It is a perfect mystery why the UK authorities allow these services to continue operating.

UK phone numbers starting with '70' are "Personal numbering" in the "Find me anywhere" range. Charges for calls to these numbers are not distance-dependent. They can cost as much as UKL 0.50 (USD 0.90) per minute to call and can forward the call to virtually any phone number in the world. Forwarding numbers can be set up for free and completely anonymously via websites such as uknumbers.com.

In most cases when you call one of these numbers the phone that starts ringing will actually be a mobile phone somewhere in Nigeria, as the UK number has been programmed to auto-forward calls to another number. These +44 70xx numbers are used as a redirector service to obscure the fact that the person taking the call is not actually based in Europe. The UK number is used to lend credibility to the scam. Unfortunately the authorities in the UK do not seem to be taking action to shut down such phone numbers.

So I replied with this:

I am sorry Mr. Giggs,
My telephone plan does not cover phone calls to that number.
What country is that?

We will have to handle this in e-mail or you can call me.
Sincerely,
Youshould Gofukurself

Hehehe.

I received another reply at midnight last night.

Attn:- Youshould Gofukurself.

Thanks for your mail and understanding, Well i must let you know that i am very happy to hear from you as regards to the world you used that you are generously to the charities, Yes i as soon as the fund gets to your account i will fry immediately to your country because i need to see you face to face and you are to direct me on what to do.

Gofukurself,You don't need to have any difficulty on the FORM all you need is to file it and send it to the bank and send a copy to me.There is no terms and conditions on the form, All you need it to file it and the mode of transfer is direct transfer to your account which is bank to bank transfer. The Swift code should be yours but if you don't have it there is no problem because the transfer is bank to bank transfer. Here is bank email address (barclays.bkuk@accountant.com)

Regards,
Mr Peter Giggs.
-----
Since we know his mailing address is fake this should really get his goat...
I sent this:

Brother Peter,

I have filled out the form. I did not know what a Swift number is so I used my charities bank account and routing number along with my authorization PIN.

I am uncomfortable sending my personal and sensitive banking information over the Internet, so I printed two copies of your form, included my banks wire transfer authorization form, signed them both, and mailed one to you at your address, and the other to David J. Brown at the London branch of Barkley’s Bank priority US Mail.

You should have everything you need to transfer the funds directly to my charity bank account by November 2nd.

How long do you expect it will take to transfer the funds?

Sincerely,
Youshould Gofukurself

That should really get him squirming.
The "pot of gold" with account number, PIN, and my signature for transfer but he can't get it ;-}
