    Hello. A few days later from being a victim of this deception, receiving emails from oaknorth@obprivate.com, I myself have been played by these scammers and imposters who can sway people into giving them money.

    lease everyone be careful, I have copies of really impressive notices to my name, attached with international transfer offices and directors, and different departments and even her royal majesty's official logo addressing to me that it is authentic.

    How troubled I was when I went through the experience and paid no attention to detail. I would forward my notices to this website if I knew how but I can't.

    He went so far to even send me certificates reflecting my winning certificate and even a approval certificate from HMS Treasury Department.

    They go out of their way to con people.

    They first requested payment of 300 pounds and when I said I don't have money they reduced it by 40%.

    Please don't be gullible.

      Here is another one they send to people

      "Good day,

      It is good to be in contact with you even though this medium of communication has been grossly abused by criminal minded people making it difficult for people with genuine intension struggles to correspond and exchange views without skepticism. I am Mr. David Newton, currently working as account manager with OakNorth Bank in London. I have worked here for more than 10 years now. I decided to contact you first via sms due to the urgency of this transaction. I was in the Republic of South Africa for some weeks to search for an area of investment, that was when I got your contact number. I believe you will read this carefully and understand with me, as this will be of a benefit to both of us.

      I was the account manager to one Late Peter Alfond, a foreign contractor to the Department of Works here in London who has an investment account with my bank; Peter Alfond had a wife named Rose and two children, daughter named Elizabeth and son named Lawrence. Peter Alfond was trapped dead alongside his wife and daughter on a collapsed building June 7, 2004 built by one of the construction company here in London not long ago, the son who only survived then in the family had gone to school on that day. Before the death tragedy, the Late Peter Alfond has a balance of £5.7M in his investment account with my bank. I personally made sure the £5.7M was willed to Mr. Lawrence Nine months later after the death of Peter Alfond his father; Late Peter Alfond’s account with this institution was changed into Lawrence’s account.

      ...

      I can secure all the documents that would confer you the legal right to make this claim and would make them available to you so that the proceeds of this bank account valued at £6.9 Million can be paid to you before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge amount is lodged.

      For this I seek your consent and assistance to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since I have been unable to locate the relatives for the past two years now, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you and then both of us can share the money, 50% to me and 50% to you. Can I trust you on this? As soon as you accept my proposal, I shall immediately start the processing documents that will be used to back up your claim.

      I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this transfer.

      If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion.

      Regards,

      Mr. David Newton

      Hello David Newton

      I'm so Blessed to hear this from you and I surely do accept the proposal and give you the positive signals to initiate the process towards a conclusion.

      Thank You"
