419 Scam

This was an attachment file that I received. It was from tonnnybrowwwn2@gmail.com.

Enugu, Enugu State,
Tel: +2348024489296

I am contacting you believing you are a honest and trustworthy person. I believe you will not betray the confidence I have in you to have contacted you even though we've not met before. Besides, I only got your address through the internet. 

I am Mr Tony Brown Eastern Regional Head, Operations and Co-ordination, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc. There is a dormant account which has not been operational for many years now. The account has a net balance of US$7,948, 500.00(SEVEN MILLION, NINE HUNDRED AND FORTY EIGHT THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS) only! The owner of this account was Engr. Smith B. Andreas, a Briton and manager of Petro-Technical Support Services .On investigation I discovered that the account owner is deceased. He died over Ten years ago. I also discovered that neither his company nor anybody was named a beneficiary of the fund. If the money is not claimed and the bank discovers this lapse, the money would be forfeited. All I want you to do is to collaborate with me by standing in as the beneficiary because Management is ready to approve the remittance of the money to any foreigner who has correct information of this account. Besides, I would use my position to facilitate prompt remittance of the fund. You will be expected to provide a bank account of any bank of your choice where you want the money to be transferred.

If for any reason you think you're incapable of this transaction, you may recommend anybody whose integrity is not in doubt. I shall however provide you with directives on what to do as we proceed. Contact me on my private telephone number above or through my email address with information about your full contact addresses including personal telephone & fax numbers and Bank information immediately if you are interested. 

Also, I need little information about yourself and what you do for living as well as a strong assurance that you can guarantee the safety of the money when it gets into your account.

At the conclusion of this business, I shall travel to your country for sharing. I have mapped out 35% of the total amount for you for assisting me,5% to take care of all expenses from both parties and the remaining for me.

I look forward for prompt reply from you.

Best Regards.
Tony Brown
