to me


I am writing to you from the United States of America to seek your help in something that will be beneficial to both of us. I am a senior banker and I served as the last branch manager of my bank. Due to operational issues, our bank has closed its banking services and we have long advised our customers to withdraw their deposits to avoid the forfeiture of the deposit to the Treasury Department. There is a sum of three million, one hundred and forty four thousand United States dollars (USD3,144,000.00) that has not been withdrawn our customer (Ms. Marie Fe Castro) who is now dead. According to our bank records, Ms. Marie Fe Castro was from the Philippines and she did not put any beneficiary at the time she made the deposit. All I want you to do is to cooperate with me so you can apply as the beneficiary of the deposit and claim the money from our bank.

Getting the money from our bank is easy as I am in a position to influence things in our favor since the verification and approval of the claim will be done by me when you apply for it. This claim will be done legally without going contrary to the financial laws of your country or that of my own country. You will not be required to come to our bank in person due to the movement restrictions imposed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You will file for the claim and complete it while in the comfort of your home, all you need to provide is a bank account where the money will be transferred to you if you wish to be paid through a bank account transfer.

Where you do not have a bank account or do not wish to have the money transferred to your bank account, I will see to it that our bank issues a demand draft (a type of check that cannot be bounced) as a way of paying you the claim amount. Once you have received the money from our bank, I will provide you with a bank account where my own share of the money will be lodged for me. We will share into two equal parts (50:50) between the two of us. I will give you more details of myself, the late depositor, our bank and also tell you the next thing to do to ensure the success of the claim. Do inform me in clear terms if you are interested in making the claim with me or not. Your quick response will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
David Johnson.

Habe soeben diese Mail erhalten:


Mein Name ist Herr David Johnson, 56 Jahre alt, aus Amerika
Am 26. Dezember 2018 ging ich als Gewinner des Lottos für 298,3 Millionen US-Dollar hervor und beschloss, insgesamt 114,09 Millionen US-Dollar nach Steuern mit nach Hause zu nehmen.
Dies ist eine lebensverändernde Erfahrung für mich und ich habe beschlossen, zehn glücklichen Menschen 950.000 € zu spenden. Zum Glück wurden Sie als einer von ihnen ausgewählt. Ich mache das auf der Grundlage eines Versprechens, das ich vor langer Zeit gemacht habe, um so vielen Menschen wie möglich mit einem Wohltätigkeitsprojekt zu helfen, um der Menschheit auf jede mögliche Weise zu helfen.
Bitte kontaktieren Sie mich unter meiner persönlichen E-Mail-Adresse: davidjohnsonsure2@gmail.com
Wie bekomme ich die Spende?

Freundliche Grüße
Herr David Johnson
