"First National Bank" Advance Fee Scam Sent by Scammers

The fake "First National Banko" 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 impersonating the real person and 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.

    I am Jeff Smith allocation department from the First Bank.My office monitors and controls the affairs of all banks and Financial institutions concerned with foreign claim payments/Inheritance Funds. I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving within banks both on the local and international levels in line with foreign claim settlements.

    I have before me list of funds, which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts,unclaimed deposits or over-invoiced sum. on this note, I wish to have a deal with you as regards to an unpaid fund. I have a file before me and the data's are correct and UN-tampered.

    As it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds to the Federal Government Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits, I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions I received two days ago from the Foreign Debts reconciliation dept to submit the List of payment reports / expenditures and audited reports of revenues. Among several others, I have decided to remit your claim sum following my idea that we can have a deal/agreement and I am going to do this legally.

    My conditions:

    1. The sum of US$18.7M only will be transfer into your account after the processing of all relevant legal documents with your name as the bonfire beneficiary,the transfer will be made by Draft or telegraphic Transfer (T/T), conformable in 3 working days.

    2. This deal must be kept secret forever, and all correspondence will be strictly by email / telephone, for security purposes.

    3. There should be no third parties as most problem associated with your fund release are caused by your agents or representative.

    4. Note that after the successful completion of this transaction,you and I will have a fair share of the fund in the ratio of 60:40.

    If you AGREE with my conditions, l advise you on what to do immediately and the transfer will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet the three days mandate.

    Waiting for your reply soon.

    Yours faithfully,

    Mr.Jeff Smith.

    I have good news for us today! I am attaching copies of the Funds approval documents from the Ministry of Finance and First Bank that empowers you as the legitimate owner of the funds by virtue fund receiving beneficiary. It is for your assessment and record purposes.

    The Bank, has forwarded a detailed application to the authorities involved in endorsing the approval and as soon as the approval is ready, the appointed paying Santander bank London will be communicating to you with remittance instructions.

    In view of these the First bank has instructed us to acquire a sworn affidavit of claim certificate from the Ministry of Justice here to enable them legally issue an irrevocable payment instruction order to their coressponding Santander bank UK to raise all instrument of payment for your adoption immediately.

    So we need to act fast now.

    Please confirm receipt of these documents.

    Sincerely yours,

    Mr. Jeff Smith.
