The fake "Deposit Certificateo" 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.

This is to inform you that Dorathy Jackson Of United State Of America died of heart attack few days ago .This your emaill address and the Deposit certificate she gave to me before she died prove that she deposited 10 Million US dollars with the Fidelity Bank Plc in your name .She Willed that you help the needy, the orphanage kids and the widows..etc with the 60% of the money and keep 40%.

Therefore Contact me back with your name, address, cell phone number and a copy of your ID to enable me verify and confirm the names written on the Deposit certificate she gave to me before she took her last breath.

I know there are many scams out there but that does not mean that there are no more real donation / transaction such as this so do not be afraid or confused or think that this might be a joke because it is not.

If I confirm your details and confirm that the names on the Deposit certificate I will direct you to the Bank Person to get paid of the money.This is not a joke.

Thank You.

God bless you
