You got to hand it to this scammer – at least he gave me a good laugh.  Look at his email address and name: Garry Loopy <>

Yes.  Garry clearly is Loopy and lives in hope that someone will fall for his scam.  Because this is a scam.  Anyone who really was a finance manager for the Bank of Scotland would at least be able to  write in proper English and punctuate a sentence.  Plus – do you really believe that a company in Bahrain would overpay to the tune of $6m without either their accountants of the Bank of Scotland noticing?

It’s just a load of rubbish.  If you are “Loopy” enough to reply to Mr Hope (or Mr Loopy) you will find yourself being asked for money.  Delete the email and don’t reply.

Dear Friend,

business project which i have here in my hand and ready to be executed without hitches,i would give to you a more detailed explanation of this

project which i prefer to call a deal if i get your positive response in agreeing to partner with me since this business is 100% risk free because

i have all the modalities fashioned out to give this business an excellent outcome.

In an attempt to throw light on this business deal,a month ago a Bahrain multinational company opted an overdraft from our bank and it was over

i am open to negotiate your percentage so far you put in your utmost attention and sincerity due to the nature of the business.
