Attention: Online Beneficiary,

Your details has been received and confirmed with what we have in our
database before we proceed to set up your Bank of America Personal
Residential Online Account, we want to bring to your notice the simple
procedure to achieve this aim with our bank under my supervision.
First and foremost the origin of funds has previously advised in my
initial e-mail was from the United Nation Organization on unpaid
payments from deposit funds from Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.

Your name and contact information was retrieved from the short listed
data on the file of the United Nation Organization. If you try to
recollect, you would remember conducted some businesses in either of
the mentioned three tier regions (Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe) and
the purpose of selection was randomly made by the United Nation
Organization. Our bank stands out from all the presently distressed
banks in United State and Northern America to enable the payment of
your overdue transaction that has been pending for the past several
years released. I want you to clearly understand that, I am here to
serve you according to the instruction from FBI, Homeland Securities
of States and United Nation Organization in particular. Moreover, I am
not here to play any kind of joke with you. The clearances from
Federal Reserve Bank and US Treasury Department to enable your online

Meanwhile, you have to clearly understand that, before we can set up a
new Bank of America Personal Residential Online Account for you here
in our bank, the activation fee must be paid by you and it will
reflect in our database and your original account which was instructed
from united nation will be activated. You have to send the sum of $100
USD dollars i TUNES card to activate your Bank of America Personal
Residential Online Account, this payment will be credited to your
Online account before we can fully remit the amount value of
US$2,500,000,00 United States Dollars This is why it is important that
we first of all receive the Bank of America Personal
Residential Online Account Activation fee in our bank, which in turn
would record and file the payment of $100 USD dollars i tunes card and
forward the information to our headquarters here in USA.

Then the fee would be received, in TUNES registered into the system
and once it is sighted, then an instruction would be issued out to
effect and the documentation would be formally presented to Federal
Reserve Bank just as described in my most recent correspondence with
you explaining. Please, if you cannot afford to pay this US$100 i
TUNES card don’t reply to my e-mail; we don’t have time to beg you to
set up Bank of America Personal Residential Online under our
supervision. Once you buy the $100 USD dollars i tunes card make sure
you send Copy of the $100 USD dollars i tunes card here in our email,

TELEPHONE NUMBER +229-98952802
Contact: bankofamricaservice2020@gmail.com
The email was sent from the email address ""Dutton C. Moynihan" <conniedutton74@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "bankofamricaservice2020@gmail.com" and the subject "YOUR URGENT RESPONSE IS NEEDED".

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.
