RE: Outstanding Inheritance payment of US$5Million by ATM
Master Card Payment


This is the 3rd time I am sending you this notification letter
regarding to your abandoned ATM Master Card valued sum of US$5Million
and I have not received any negative respond from you or making a
suggestion on how you wish to receive your ATM Card. Once again;

I am Mr. Charles B. Williams, the new director ATM Head of Operation
Guaranty Trust Bank Nigeria PLC, I resumed to this office on the 12th
of February 2020 and during my official research I discovered an
abandoned ATM Master card valued sum of $5Million belonging to you as
the rightfully beneficiary.

I tried to know why this card has not been released to you but I was
told by the GT Bank management that the former director ATM head of
operation who left this office four months ago withheld your card for
his own personal use without knowing that his evil plans towards
diverting your fund will be discovered.

Now that your ATM Master card is still available and ready for your
receiving, therefore you can come down here to our bank to pick up
your card direct from my office or alternatively it can be arranged
ship to your address through any registered reliable courier service
company, but you are to take care of the courier charge, hope it is
cleared and accepted by you?

I don’t know the courier cost of shipping the card to you but if you
permit me and accept the terms, then I can make an inquiry from the
courier shipping company to find out the cost, but in that case you
will be required to forward to me your address where you want to
receive the card to enable me find out the shipping cost to your

Your direct telephone number and address will be needed together with
copy of your passport. More details of your ATM card payment will be
made known to you as soon as I receive your swift positive response.

Do not hesitate to email me as soon as you read this mail.

Thanks for your co-operation and I wait for your kind positive
respond. Please how is Corona Virus (Covid 19) in your country and how
is your Government handling the situation?

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Charles B. Williams
Chief Economic Adviser to the President
Federal Republic of Nigeria
Tel: +23486829637
The email was sent from the email address "GUARANTY TRUST BANK <privatemailboxp@gmail.com>", with the subject "Debts Settlement Office".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
