Mr. Arnold Auckland
(Foreign Operation Manager)
I am Mr. Arnold Aucklandfrom Barclays Bank PLC,UK. we had just formed a new forum which is the newly inaugurated World Debt Recovery committee (WDRC). My committee has a mandate to recover unpaid debts associated with NNPC contracts, Lottery fund, inheritance fund, loans and grants etc ranging from $1M-$95.5M owed to various beneficiaries and companies across the globe (Asia, Europe, USA, Africa, and Australia) and submit the list of the unpaid beneficiaries/companies to the 2 appointed official paying Banks for immediate payment of the fund.
In the course of our investigation, your email address/particulars were shortlisted among the first fifteen individuals yet to be paid hence this email. However, we received a petition today from one Mrs. Christina Morgan that you are dead. According to her, you died in a plane crash as such your fund should be paid to her as the apparent heir. She has also submitted her Bank account with Bank of America for the transfer of the fund to her.
To avoid undue delay or paying the fund to wrong individual/beneficiary, we have decided to contact you for confirmation. If we fail to hear from you after 72 hours, it will be assumed that the petition of Mrs. Morgan is true and the fund will be paid to her without further delay.
Therefore, We would like you to choose below your choice of fund transfer:
(A) Bank Transfer/Online Banking
(B) Certified Bank Draft/Cheque
(C) ATM Card
Your full personal information is also required as below which will be needed for the transfer of your fund.
(A) Full name and residential address
(B) Next of kin
(E) Bank Account Information
(F) Telephone numbers
(G) Scan the first page of your international passport or drivers license, recent passport photograph, send all via email attachment.
Your urgent response is always required because you have a limited time to execute this fund. be free to call us any time for more information.

This email is infected with Scam$fund
DO NOT OPEN the attachment . Do not response to the email. This email is not send by "Mr. Arnold Auckland" <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
This email is a scam, not a worm or virus. The email do not have any infected attachments.
The offer may sound tempting and looks worth taking a risk for the big reward. DO NOT fall into this scam.
If you reply, you will probably be asked to pay some US$100 to start off the fund transfer process. The excuse for requiring your payment is that the scammer themselves cannot be involved in any payment to avoid being caught linking the transfer. Of course, if you pay up the first time, you will be asked for further payments for other issues.
Once you become suspicious of them and ask many questions about the payment, they will stop responding the email and start looking for other victims.
