“Mr. Brian Roland” clearly hasn’t read his own email. He starts by telling me that it isn’t “solicitation or spam” and then continues to write a blatantly spam and scam email.
This is a scammer – he (or she) isn’t a bank official in London. I’ve a feeling he or she is an Eastern European scammer – just hoping to get his/her hands on your cash by charging you fees. Ignore this email.
THIS IS NOT A SALES, SOLICITATION OR SPAM.
I am a staff of Barclays Bank London. I am writing on behalf of my client
following an Opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to
my client and us. My client was a top government official in another
country, who banked with us in the UK. I was his personal
banker, who kept all this accounts and monitored all his investment for
him here in the UK.
My client’s bank account with us has been frozen due to some diminutive
investigation on my client. My client is a very rich man, worth over $4
billion US Dollars. A lot of these funds are frozen in different accounts
due to the reason I gave above, and we need to transfer some funds to an
unnamed account only I and my client know about, into your account. The
above fund is not connected with arms, drugs or money laundering.
Now! All we need from you is to let us know if you are interested before
we give you more information.
The amount in question is very large so you alone cannot receive this
cash. I intend to use 4-5 people to conclude this transfer and the process
shouldn’t take more than 5 days. For transparency I will fully outline the
sharing pattern, we have agreed to give you a
non-negotiable 10%, of the total money transferred and believe me, it is a
lot of cash.
I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement
that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with
me urgently by this private E-mail:
Note: this transaction is confidential and risk free. Please note that all
necessary arrangement for the smooth transfer of these funds to you has
been finalized. We will discuss much in details when I receive your
Mr. Brian Roland
