Steven Welby scam

Hi, I received a txt and replied by e-mail to this scam on my cell phone: "Hello, am Steven Welby from Standard chartered bank, London. Kindly contact me on my private e-mail for a vital transaction: steve.welby @ hotmail.com" So I emailed him and received the following reply:


Thanks for your response. Let me introduce myself again, I am Steven Welby senior operations manager in Standard Chartered, London, UK. I have contacted you for a very confidential and profitable transaction. Your contact came to me through New Zealand chamber of commerce during my search for a reliable and competent hands to partner with me in this transaction. Kindly take your time to read through the details of this all important transaction so you can have a proper understanding of the entire situation.

In 2002, a client by the name of Marcus opened an ISA deposit account with our bank and lodged the sum of £3.8m (Three Million Eight Hundred Thousand Pounds) into it. I was the head of account department when this was done and I over saw the account until his unfortunate death in 2007 in a very tragic situation. Unfortunately Mr Marcus did not append a next of kin to this account he probably did not see the necessity of that. This money is lying fallow in the account in the bank.

The British government is making a very serious attempt to confiscate and transfer this money into the national treasury because they know the bonafide owner is dead and no next of kin is coming forth to claim this money.

I have documents to this account and I know about every necessary detail regarding the opening of this account that will lead to the successful execution of this project.

This is where you come in, I want you to stand in as the next of kin since you have the same SURNAME (LAST NAME) as Mr Marcus. As soon as I get your consent and full co-operation, I will immediately include your name in his file as the bonafide next of kin and have you contact the bank for claims process to begin at once. If approved and successful, the money will be transferred to any account of your choice without questions and without you appearing in person. I will do my part to ensure smooth and effortless processes in transferring the money to you. I need this transaction done as soon as possible before the British government sweeps of this money.

For your effort and partnership, I will offer you 40% while the remaining 60% comes to me. This transaction is absolutely risk free everything will be done legitimately. Neither you nor me is at any risk at all. Thankfully only me have the access to the file of late Mr Marcus

I hope I have given a good detail of the transaction, feel free to ask if anything is not clear to you.

Finally, if your last name is not it means I made a mistake in contacting you it means you are not the right person because I will ask for your identity to confirm you identity before we proceed further. As soon as I receive your response and obtain the necessary details from you, I will proceed to include your name as the next of kin and give you the account department details for you to contact them.

I politely ask you to treat this email as very serious and confidential .

I await and will appreciate your soonest response.
