The fake Bank of America email below is a scam. Recipients are asked to delete it and should not follow the instructions in it. The fake email is being sent by scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money or personal information. An advance-fee scam is a form of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick. The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.

    Subject: Re: Matter Of Urgent.

    Attention: Beneficiary,

    I am Mr. GoodRich D. Maurice, Former United Nations/WHO Ambassador to Benin Republic. With reference to your entitlement fund and in line with the CHANGE OF BENEFICIARY'S APPLICATION, signed by Mrs. Glenda F. Ward with your purported authorization. This issue has been carefully examined and we have declined Mrs. Ward's application as the application lacks regular signature. But Did you ever instruct Mrs. Glenda F. Ward to claim your fund worth US$3.500.000? Below is the bank account information provided by Mrs. Glenda F. Ward saying that you authorized her to claim your fund that you are terminally ill.

    1. BANK NAME: BANK OF AMERICA

    2. BANK ADDRESS: Kerrville Texas 78028 USA

    3. ACCOUNT #: 32026999

    4. ROUTING #: 114922486

    If you had not authorized the change of your bank account in respect to your outstanding entitlement Payment, therefore notify me immediately as the notification / declaration was supported with a sworn affidavit from Cotonou high court ref: ilk /jj/202/k2015, dated 10TH June 2019 and signed by Mrs. Glenda Ward who claim and stated in the sworn declaration that you authorized her to claim the said fund on your behalf to a different bank account in the U.S.A as stated above because you were terminally ill and the Doctor who is in charge of your case stated that you will not stay more than one Month before passing away.

    This development has caused lots of discrepancies in your payment file that is why we had to suspend your payment and prompted to contact you directly before re-validating your payment. You can be rest assured that I will do everything within my capacity to successfully actualize the quick transfer of your fund to any of your nominated bank account.

    Kindly get back to me as soon as possible so that I will direct you on what to do.

    Sincerely Yours

    Mr. GoodRich D. Maurice

    Fmr. United States Ambassador"
