    From: The Bank Manager,
    Gulf International Bank (UK) Ltd,
    United Kingdom.

    Dear Friend,

    I have sent a mail to your house address, but it came back undelivered, So I decided to contact you via e-mail. My name is Sir. Gulza Dean, I am the Bank Manager of Gulf International Bank (UK) Ltd, I am a British citizen and also married with two kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of GPB£3.500,000.00 (Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand Great British Pounds). This funds is the excess of what my branch made as profit last year.

    I have already submitted an approved end of the year report for the year 2011, to my Headquarter here in Knightsbridge and they will never know of this Excess. I have since then, placed this amount of GPB£3.500,000.00 (Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand Great British Pounds) in an INVESTMENT ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.

    As The bank manager of this bank, I cannot be affiliated with this funds, that's why I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this funds into your bank account anywhere in the world you feel is safe. I intend to part with 40% of this fund to you while 60% shall be for me. I don't need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel is safer.

    All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. Kindly consider my proposal and let me know If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely responses. You can contact me on my private e-mail: dean_gulza@yahoo.com.hk

    Note: Please do include your telephone numbers in your responses to me for faster communication.

    Totally legit. In fact, I'm sure he's acquainted with a Nigerian prince or two.

    3.5 million quid is indeed quite noble sir.

    However I bet that he acquired it by not so noble means.

    Yeh it's phising.
    He says he's British yet his email is from Hong Kong.
    Nice try.
    5/10 would read again.

    Obviously it must be genuine because the guy's been Knighted which is why he's told you he's a Sir. Since he's been vetted by the Queen first, you can trust that the British Monarchy has your back if anything goes wrong.

    Or of course just blacklist the senders domain and junk the email.

    He said it was a "noble transfer of GPB£3.500,000.00". How can you argue with that type of credibility? He's honest because he says he's honest.

    Haha, someone said something like this in Day Z the other day. It was "Get in the bus cunt, I'll give you beans", to which I replied "Fuck off mate" and shot him.

    Good ol' Australia.
