Jimmy Adam or Adams


Fraud. Note he doesn't know how to spell his own name.

One out of five!

Dear Sir,
I am Jimmy Adam, a staff member of Natwest Bank
London. With all due respect, I am writing following
an oppurtunity in my office that will be of immense
benefit to both of us. In my department we discovered
an abandoned sum of 7.5million British Pounds Sterling
(seven million five hundred thousand British Pounds)
in an account that belong to one of our foreign
customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson who unfortunately
lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines
Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including
his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about
the crash on visiting this site. 01/alaska.airlines.list/
Now the bank has been waiting for any of the relatives
to come-up for the claim but nobody has done that.I
personally has been unsuccessful in locating the
relatives for 4 years now, I seek your consent to
present you as the next of kin/Beneficiary to
the deceased so that the proceeds of this account
valued at 7.5Million British Pounds can be paid to
you. This will be disbursed or shared in these
percentages, 60% to me and 40% to you. With the assistance
of an Attorney all necessary legal documents will be procured to
back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest
Co-operation, Confidentiality and Trust to enable us
see this transaction through. I guarantee you that
this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement
that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please, provide me the following:
1. Full Name
2. Your Telephon/fax numbers
3. Your Contact Address.
Your urgent response will be highly anticipated and
Best regards,
Jimmy Adams.

Important Notes :-

1. Whatever you do, do not respond to any e-mail like this. If you have given bank details to any fraudster like this, then inform your bank immediately and also make sure that you close the account.

2. If the e-mail mentions a well known e-mail address such as from,, etc., then why not forward the offending e-mail to, etc. Hopefully, they'll remove the e-mail address, which will stop people being sucked in.
