Encore une variante du "scam nigérian", cette fois depuis la "Royal Bank of Scotland". 30% de 25 millions de dollars, 8 millions de dollars, près de 6 millions d'euros… je suis intéressé.
Parmi les nombreuses questions qui se posent, je me demande toutefois si l'on va me demander de contribuer aux 5% de frais, soit un millions d'euros… cela me serait difficile…
Compte tenu du contexte, l'utilisation d'adresses mails variées en earthlink ou gmail n'est pas forcément surprenante… mais visiblement je ne suis pas la seule personne à qui ce mail a été adressé (j'y suis en copie cachée). Les autres sont-ils tous de France comme le laisse penser le texte?

From the Accountant and Bills exchange and
Foreign Remittance Department,
Royal Bank of Scotland
My name is Mr. Richard Williams, I work in Account and bills exchange and foreign remittance department of Royal Bank of Scotland I write this letter on behalf of me and my two other colleagues in our department to ask for your assistance to carry out this transaction. We discovered some amount of money abandoned in our bank the sum of -$25M (Twenty Five Million US Dollars).
This money belongs to a Foreign Oil Merchant who works with an oil firm here in UK, he is one of our customers that executed a contract worth millions of Dollars before his death, and also from your country. On the 2nd of January 2005, I received a call that the customer died in the Tsunami Disaster with his wife and only daughter while on vacation at Phuket Island in Thailand.
We have advertised so many times in search for his next of kin or relation to stand and claim of this money, but nobody surfaced to apply to claim the money.
In this situation, Because you bears the same name with him and also from your country, I and my colleagues decided contact you to stand as the next of kin and claim this money on his behalf,
We are doing all this things because of our late, customer who is from your country and we don't want this money to go into the bank's treasure account as unclaimed fund.
We intend to share this amount as follows: 65% for I and my colleagues, 30% for you're effort and 5% for any contingencies that may incurred during the process of transferring the funds into your bank account.
I have the original copy of Certificate of Deposit of the funds, which will be used to substantiate our inheritance claims. All I require is your consent and honest co-operation to enable us see the deal through.
Furthermore, I guarantee that the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please contact me if you are interested immediately via my personal emails, E-mail: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org to enable us commence on the transaction.
Thanks for your co-operation.
