Warning! Some sicko using Allan… Nigerian scam alert

Got this in my email last night:

Allan’s next of kin.

It is from a ‘Dr. Frank Smith’.

You can imagine my thoughts. Allan’s family was going to ask for help in keeping BMEWS running.

NOT! Here’s the rest:

Dear Respectable One,

REQUEST FOR A NEXT OF KIN BENEFICIARY - HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL

My special greetings to you and your entire family. I am Dr.Frank Smith, recently promoted to the office of a Senior Branch Manager with Zenith Int’l Bank Plc. Late Engr. (Allan), a National of your country, who is a contractor with the DEPARTMENT OF PETROLEUM RESOURCES, VICTORIA ISLAND, LAGOS.

Here in after shall be referred to as my client, On 30 JAN 2000, my client,his wife, and their three children were involved in the Kenya airways flight with registration number 5Y-BEN which departed from Nairobi to destination
Lagos and all family died in this fatal air crash on 30 JAN 2000, Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended Relatives, this has proved abortive.

After all these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to get in touch with the consul-General to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank where these huge deposits were lodged, particularly the ZENITH INT’L BANK PLC Where the deceased had an account Valued at about ($15 Million United States Dollars) The Head Office has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin Or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 5 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name so that the proceeds of this account valued at ($15 Million US Dollars) can be paid to you and then you and me Can share the money 50% to me and 50% to you and all expenses will be shared equal and this will be after tax is deducted by the (IRS) in your country. An attorney will be contracted to help us revalidate and notarize all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make.

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from any breach of the law.

Note, I recommend that you send your response together with your phone number to enable me call you for more explanation if the need arises.

Thank you.

Faithfully yours in Christ,

Dr. Frank Smith.

(sniff...) Didn’t know that Allan died in 2000… with his wife...and three kids… nor was I aware he and I were family… dickhead

How should I play this? Should I reply with a bogus phone number and see how far I can lead he/she/it/them on? Might be fun… could keep BMEWS posted…

Nah, just wanted to warn you guys and gals.

Here are the headers I have:

Dr. Frank Smith
Senior Branch Manager,
Zenith Bank Int’l Plc
234A, Adeola Odeku,
Victoria Island, Lagos Nigeria
Office:00234-1-8145312
Mobile: 00234-8023605271

Wonder, if those numbers are right, could we run up their long distance bills?

The so-called ‘Dr Frank Smith’ email is nunuu0@aliceadsl.fr

I’m not certain its real, but that is a French email? Oui?

I have the same last name? The sad fact is, some idiot will fall for this.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
