The Securities and Exchange Commission is working with federal prosecutors in Manhattan to prepare a file asking a judge to formally freeze all of our assets as soon as possible.My husband deposited the sum of (USD$15 Million) in a Finance Firm in Asia some years ago, I need you to collect this funds and distribute it to both of us since the Federal investigators are working around the clock to freeze all my assets.I am contacting you with this reasons, The bank have given me a notification about the account being dominant,secondly i am under pressure and being monitored .Thirdly you have the same country of origin with my husband ,lastly the Asian bank have no right to confiscate the fund legally deposited in their country.Though i do not know you before , one has to risk in confining for one to succeed in life.
Please reply back to me on this e-mail as I will like lawyer to contact you ,so that he will direct you on the way forward.
Please due send to me all your contact details as my lawyer will prepare a legal documents for the transfer of the fund in your name before we commence on this transaction. God bless you. Please keep this transaction secret and confidential for now.
Note; the procedure for the release of this payment is a straight process that will not incriminate you in anyway what so ever. So my assurance is that your role is risk free and I can assure you that if I can have your total co-operation, this fund will be paid to you within seven working days.

Mrs. Ruth Madoff

Classic, seen quite a few of these over the years and hard to believe that people still get taken by them, but it happens everyday. Nothing quite like good old fashioned human greed to get some people stuck knee deep in, well something really smelly!

Thanks for posting John, may well save someone's bacon with that.

Just remember, if you are new and you haven't seen one of these scams before. You may well get an email like this in the future, the wording may well be different, but the scam is always the same!

Just file it under TRASH!

Yup! Trash. It's amazing how people come up with such lies and would go through whatever means just to scam others. But then again 'its the survival of the fittest or shall we say the wisest :)

We receive emails like these on support almost everyday. So if you do get one delete it don't even bother reading the entire email.

Thanks for the heads up, bacpro! Hope this will help prevent others from getting scammed.

All the best!
