Bank Transfer Blues

Another bank scam with a dormant account but this one has a very humorous twist! It seems that this idiot gets transferred from his bank (First Bank of Nigeria) to a totally different bank (Oceanic Bank) that has nothing to do with the first. Of course, he wasnít aware that he was transferred even though it turns out that he is the CEO of Oceanic Bank! My emails are in blue, his/hers are in black, my comments in red. Happy reading!

Attn: Beneficiary,

NOTIFICATION FOR RELEASE OF $9.5M

John Aboh the new director, international remittance department of this bank, my boss Mr. Jacob M Ajekigbe, The MD/CEO of this bank is now on compulsory leave and all power has been vested on me to make all international payment....Furthermore due to allegations of corrupt practice against other Nigeria Banks, the Federal Government of Nigeria has appointed this bank to effect all foreign overdue payment.

Be informed that the Federal Government have Approved the release of $9.5M which have been in this bank for many years UNCLAIMED. Our Boss in collaboration with the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria have refuse to tell you the truth on how to claim your fund, this is because they has been using the interest accumulated from your fund every year to enrich themselves without your knowledge. I want to help you POOL OUT this fund to your Bank account today using the easiest and quickest method which has not been known to you before.

By this method a Domiciliary Account will be opened for you. A domiciliary account is a secure account which we will be opened for you in our Bank and Credit your payment of $9.5M for further credit into your account, the essence of this Domiciliary account is to secure and protect your payment from being diverted by fraudulent people or making payment to a foreign account which do not belong to you, the greatest advantage is that you can instruct us to credit your nominated account bit by bit with small amount thereby saving yourself from the embarrassment of Financial Authority in your country who monitor large transfer due to current trend of terrorist. Another beauty of the domiciliary account is that you can retain the balance left in your account in our Bank and can also instruct us to pay out money to any bank of your choice in the world, or issue you an ATM Card which you can use in any part of the world when on a business trip.

I hope you now understand the advantages of a Domiciliary account and why you need this account to receive your payment of $9.5M now in our Bank. You are advice to forward as a matter of urgent your direct telephone and Fax number and your contact address as we have started the process of opening the account for you. All that is require of you is to Activate the newly opened Domiciliary Account with a minimum of $85usd in line with Provisions of Section (TWO) 2 Sub Section (iia) of Banks and Financial Act of 2001 which state that all Non Resident Account otherwise known as Domiciliary must be activated to make the account operational, while Sub Section (iib) do NOT permit any Bank official from making deduction from the payment to be deposited in the domiciliary account, which is $9.5M in your own case.

I will issue you payment release code which must be given to you personally on telephone strictly for security reason. This code is very important and is what you will use to confirm your payment, therefore you are to call me on telephone through +2348034381050.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir/Madam

i got your mail and like i told you people can scam other through the net and i will not allow you to get scammed through our web page. the number is not our number and you can easily get scammed through it by someone who is trying to be a first bank staff.

i will like you to disregard the fact that you called that number and someone told you whatever the person told you which i believe is not true. i am sending you a mail below which has some scam content, an identity card and a website. to some people they may think and believe it's true but it's not.
i just urge you to at least make the activation fee which is all that is required from you and you will have to believe what you see.
Remain Blessed.

Rev. John Aboh,
Director International Remittance

What I donít understand is how the scammerís number is on your website? How did this happen? Please explain this to me.

Debbie


i got your mail and like i told you people can scam other people and it is called hacking when they do this like put phone number on our website. This is not our phone number if you want to call use the number that I give you in email not from website.

Remain Blessed.

Rev. John Aboh,
Director International Remittance
First Bank of Nigeria Plc


Okay, my next question is that if you are aware that the number on your official website is a scammerís phone number, and someone hacked your website to put it there, why havenít you taken it off yet? It is still there. You have known that it is a scammerís phone number on your website for 5 days now and just left it up there? What is wrong with you? Do you realize how many people this idiot could be scamming by now? You could be sued for this you know? People thinking that it is the official number giving out their personal information and account numbers and you just go on ďbusiness as usualĒ. Did you tell anyone? Did you tell your webmaster or IT guy? I canít believe you are this stupidÖ

Debbie


i got your mail I reported it to our internet department but you must know that these things takes time and will be fixed after the know about the problem. I donít like you to call me stupid and I will not stand for name calling or insults. I am a professional banker and will not stand up for any of this you must get the activations fees sent to my office as we have no time left and would not want to miss this opptunity so please hurry and no more delay or questions

Remain Blessed.

Rev. John Aboh,
Director International Remittance
First Bank of Nigeria Plc


Are you kidding me? How long does it take to change a phone number on a website, you freaking moron? Thank God I donít bank there. This has to be the most incompetent bank on Earth. So anyways, what is this about the fees? How much is it? Did you pay the one I told you too?

Debbie


I paid the $85.00 fee as you said but there is still the $4550 transfer fee so that the money will be tranfered to you designated bank account. You need to pay this to get the transfer code for you funds. That code is what you will use to transfer your funds yourself. You are also requird to make the payment through this detail immediately through Western Union.

I checked out all you have said and it all appears to be true I am now with Oceanic bank plc Lagos Nigeria. My transfer letter just came in last week Thursday. So we have transferred every detail and the said $9.5 million dollars to my new bank.

I will like you to go and confirm it yourself and then get back to me ASAP.

Remain Blessed.

Rev. John Aboh,
Director International Remittance

Oh my god, can you believe this! The reason why when I call that no one has heard of him is because he was transferred last week to Oceanic Bank? Can you believe this fool just said that?


How were you able to transfer the money to Oceanic Bank? You told me the account was inactive, and you needed me to activate the account at First Bank of Nigeria, now all of a sudden, you easily transfer the money to Oceanic Bank without any help? How is this possible? What do you need me for if you can transfer money that easily?

So, when you said that you transferred the money to the new bank, you were just kidding or lying or something? Or perhaps, you didnít read what you were typing? I noticed under your name, you say you are the CEO of Oceanic Bank PLC. Is this correct? How is it that you didnít know you were getting transferred if you are the CEO? I also wasnít aware that a bank could ďtransferĒ a person to a totally different bank that has nothing to do with each other Ė live and learn, I guess. Anyways, hereís my banking information, let me know what else needs to be done.

This fool sends this email with the First Bank of Nigeria header and he is back to being Remittance DirectorÖ Jeez!


Are you back working for First Bank of Nigeria now??? I thought you got transferred? Or maybe you just drove to the wrong place again? Remember, you are the CEO of the company, so it would be a good example to your employees if you could remember what your bankís name is and where it is located. I realize that it may be difficult, because in your world a bank the transfer you without even telling you and promote you from International Remittance Director to CEO. Who knows, next week you may get transferred and become the Chairman of General Motors? Wouldnít that be neat?

Debbie


I really wanted to lay into this moron when the time was right, but it has been a few days and no response. Maybe he has re-read my emails I realized how much fun I was having at his expense? You think so? Me neither Ė this fool is way too stupid to understand something that simple!
