    Are the irish getting desperate ??

    Received this from the good irish folk recently......




    Good day,

    My name is William Foxster, I am a senior partner in the Technical Advisory Board of Allied Irish Bank Group(Senior Security Specialist). We are conducting a standard process investigation on behalf of "AIB Group", the International Banking conglomerate. This investigation involves a client who shares the same surname with you and also the circumstances surrounding investments made by this client at"AIB Group", the Private Banking arm of Allied Irish Bank. The client died in testate and nominated no successor in title over the investments made with the bank. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail private and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.

    I contact you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you.You share similar details to the late fellow; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct the firm to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation.Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you, that is, I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 60/40.

    I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit.But on the other hand, you with the same very name as the depositor's would easily pass as the beneficiary with right to claim.I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within few working days. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you.Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector.

    I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once, I have found myself in total control of my destiny. These chances won't pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. Lets share the blessing. If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through my email account below.If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what 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 plan a meeting soon. Please kindly respond to my direct email address: billfoxster01[at]googlemail.com

    Kind regards,

    Williams Foxster.






    In response to your email, how can i help.




    Dear Sir,

    I received your mail and its content well understood.

    Like I told you, My name is William Foxster, a senior partner in the Technical Advisory Board of Allied Irish Bank Group (Senior Security Specialist). I am contacting you concerning our customer and, an investment placed under our banks management four years ago. 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 contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication.

    I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you. In 2005, the subject matter; ref: BB/AIB/00127 came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our Private Banking Services Department. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of $7,700,500.00, which he wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his case; I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the Private Banking Services Department, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being placed. I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings. The favored route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on 6000 traditional stocks and bond managers and 2000 managers of alternative investments. Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at over Ten million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments. In mid 2005, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Russia .

    He directed that I liquidate the funds and had it deposited with Moskva City Bank. I informed him that the bank would have to make special arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking and statutory charges. He complained about the charges but later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the task he was asking of us. Cash movement across borders has become especially strict since the incidents of 9/11. I contacted my affiliate and had the funds available. I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited in Moskva City Bank, the bank is a specialist private bank that accepts deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash. This small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the highly placed and well-connected organizations. In line with instructions, the money was deposited. He told me he wanted the money there in anticipation of his arrival in Russia later that week. This was the last communication we had, this transpired around 9th October, 2006 .

    In November last year, we got a call from Moskva City Bank informing us that the inactivity of that particular portfolio. This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the fact that I managed the private banking sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit , and I could not understand why he had not come forward to claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate him I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal investigations department of the Allied Irish Bank . Four days later, information started to trickle in, apparently he was dead. A person who suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in The Island of Mauritius. We were soon enough able to identify the body and cause of death was confirmed. The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim his estate.

    If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin. Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; he died intestate.

    In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This investigation has for the past months been unfruitful. We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem, the investigation did not ever yield any result. My official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the investigation and the only party to receive the results of the investigation. This leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the deposit. According to practice, the bank will by the end of this financial year broadcast a request for statements of claim to AIB, failing to receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit back to AIB. This will result in the money entering the AIB accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the Private Banking Services Department. This will not happen if I have my way.

    What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose. There is US$ $7,700,500.00, deposited , I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as AIB is concerned, the transaction with our deceased customer concluded when I sent the funds to Moskva City Bank, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just customer services and due process. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes forward. This is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track this man's family; they have investigated for months and have found no family, the investigation has now come to an end.

    My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position to give instruction for the release of the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 60/40. I will simply inform the bank of the final closing of the file relating to the customer I will then officially communicate with the bank and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With these two things: all is done.

    I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. Let's share the blessing.

    If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this same email account. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official phone lines nor do I want you contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only through this email address. I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what 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, send me your response on this email immediately to enable us commence this line of discussion.

    I await your response.


    William Foxster.





    Wow your email was very long, I am slightly dyslexic and require strong reading glasses to read all of this.

    Can you send a shorter version please.

    Thanks for your prompt response.To get the ball rolling,Please provide me with a scan copy of your a birth certificate or baptismal certificate that shows your name and date of Birth when requested.This is meant to identify beneficiaries and to prove the right to inherit.

    With the above, I will instruct my private attorney to Prepare Documents to Obtain the Court Grant which makes you the administrator of the estate of my dead client. I will then call in the bank accounts, applies for the funds to be released to you on your behalf.

    With the documents I have at my disposal, there will be no way,the fund will not be released to you.

    There will be a bank covering note from the paying bank,when the fund is transfer to your bank.The bank covering note certifies the fund as clean clear. Your bankers will also be informed of the transfer before the transfer is effected.Note that all legal documentation making you as the next of kin of the deceased will be perfected by me through my private lawyer and sent to you. fear. I urge you to trust me on this project, and we shall successfully transfer the funds in no time.

    We've known each other by CHANCE, became friends by CHOICE, still friends by DECISION. And when we say FRIEND FOREVER, that's definitely a lifetime PROMISE.

    I want to assure you also that the transaction is 100% risk free, legally and otherwise neither from your government or from my government. All the step and procedure that will be adopted to get the fund transfered will be done in accordance with your country's law and in accordance with any international laws

    I love the real estate business a lot,and will like to invest a greater part on my share in the real estate market in your country,except you have a contrary view.

    I wish to stress further that you should keep this transaction confidential until we are able to secure the fund into your bank account or get a draft issued in your name in like sum. The need for these attributes cannot be overemphasis considering the nature of the Project and the fact that I am a career banker.

    Note further that this transaction is my life,my hope and my future..The transaction must be built on 3 cardinal principle HONESTY,TRUST AND ABSOLUTE CONFIDENTIALITY. I don't want a situation after working so hard to get this fund transferred I will not hear from you again. I have been double crossed before by an Indian man whom I used his account in Hong Kong to transfer $75,000. He ran away when he discovered the money has entered his account. I was devastated and was afraid to deal with any foreigner again.

    I await the receipt of the above mentioned document.


    Best regard.

    William



    Is the dead guy Irish ?

    My name is not very irish.

    I would like to know more details before I send my private documents to anyone.

    Thanks.

    My dead client is not Irish. I am Irish. Because of time,I discussed with my private attorney to see if it is possible to perfect the legal aspect of this transaction without your scan ID,and he said yes,but it will cost me money.In order not to waste time I gave him some money to proceed. He will file on your behalf the court PROBATE,Probate is when the court supervises the processes that transfer legal title of property from the estate of the person who has died (the "decedent") to his or her beneficiaries.

    The attorney will to fill out court forms in Russia and appear in court to Prove to the Court that your claim is valid (this is usually routine),and ask the court to issue a letter of administration which he will provide to Moskva City Bank instructing Moskva City Bank to release the fund to you.

    Because of the long period of time to get the letter of administration,I have instructed the attorney take other actions to close probate within one week. This will definately cost me money.

    When all the costs are added up – these may include appraisal costs, executor's fees, court filing fees and certified copies, costs for a type of insurance policy known as a "surety bond," plus legal and accounting fees--probate can cost from 1% to 1.5% of the total amount in the bank, sometimes more.Do not worry i will take care of that.

    The moment this process is completed,the paying bank contacts you directly to confirm from you how you want the fund paid to you. I.E BANK TO BANK TRANSFER OR THROUGH CERTIFIED BANK DRAFT. The moment the bank contacts you on the above,please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I hope my explanation is clear enough.if there are still areas you need further clarification on about this transaction,please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I believe 10 working days is enough for us to round up this transaction.

    Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

    I await your comment.

    Remain blessed.



    Hi, I am ever ready. I wish to utilize the funds in a fashion to benefit the orphanage I am involved in running for children that have lost limbs to land mines, so I am ready to start.

    We urgently need a new schoolhouse as the old one burnt down when one of the legless kiddies pulled down the kerosene lantern while trying to climb up to draw a picture of his Mother that died alongside him last year.

    That poor little child, his name is ‘skip’, is still in hospital with severe burns to his stumps, so we also have considerable medical bills to cope with.

    You sound like a religious man, so you can understand when I say that it seems this email is God sent at just the right time for us.

    I shall look forward to receiving further information from you.

    Sam.

    It amazes me why these scammers have to write such long essays and to try to win their victims over.

    A simple "I can get my hands on a lot of fucking money but need your fucking help now" type of plea would win me over more readily!

    I would love to see Smeg doing a bit of scammer baiting he could probably send a hardened Liberian 419er/ former blood diamond civil war enforcer insane with his persistent never ending but plausible patter. If you are out there smeg that is one thread I would love to see.

    Anyone thinking of giving it ago this is a good place to get you started : Welcome to the 419 Eater . I've never done it properly myself but if I can get a good corespondence going I will start a thread.
    They champion falsehood, support the butcher against the victim, the oppressor against the innocent child. May God mete them the punishment they deserve

    ^ The Celtic Tiger has taken a nasty beating. I'm not all that sypathetic any country which goes through a 500% increase in house prices in less than a decade and doesn't realise that the bubble is sooner or later going to burst deserves a bit of financial hardship for its own stupidity.
