This message is a new version of the same old kind of advance fee fraud message. (Read more about how advance fee scams work.) In this example, “Dave Moore” says there was some money that was supposed to be paid to you but wasn’t, and now the money is ready. You just have to ask to get it:
From: “Mr. Dave Moore” firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject: APPROVED TRANSFER OF YOUR FUND.
Date: Wed, 17 Jun 2015
Date: 17th June, 2015.
FROM MR. DAVE MOORE.
HEAD OF FINANCIAL SERVICE AUTHORITY INVESTIGATION AND SETTLEMENT TEAM, UK.
RE: File Number: FSAIST/L-UK/US/0024/13.
I am glad to inform you that from our investigation as directed by FSA, we discovered an unpaid/unclaimed fund in your name which was supposed to be paid out to you a long time ago, but was not due to some logistic reasons.
However, an arrangement has been made for you to receive your outstanding fund through our corresponding payment bank in Europe by online transfer.
It may interest you to know that we have successfully concluded arrangements with our corresponding payment bank to transfer your fund to you through online transfer.
We have already moved your payment file to the appropriate department of our corresponding payment bank and you will be directed on how to contact the bank as soon as you indicate your readiness to receive your fund through the bank.
You are hereby advised to confirm your readiness to receive your fund through our corresponding payment bank, so that we shall send you the contact details of the officer to contact in the bank to enable you contact him for your fund transfer.
You are also advised to re-confirm the following information;
1, FULL NAME AND ADDRESS…..
2, AGE AND MARITAL STATUS…..
I look forward to hearing from you.
Mr. Dave Moore.
