Dear Esteemed Customer,

This is to acknowledge the receipt of your mail in this office.Sequel to your mail and its content,wanting to know if this is true or not,i am writing to allay all your fears and urge you to act fast,for you do not have much time at hand.

Your cheque has been deposited with by the BMW AUTOMOBILE company,The need why you need to open an account with us is because it was a cheque that was sent to us, and wire transfer can only be effected when the fund in question is in cash form. Hence, to convert your cheque to cash, you have to open an account so that your cheque can be deposited in the account and converted into cash. After which we can now be able commence with the transfer process. Note that this is an electronic swift wire transfer; hence your fund will be wired straight into your desired bank account any where in the world.

To further allay your fears,you are allowed to make part payment now,but be informed that you will have to balance the payment as soon as you have your funds transferred to your bank account.This is the best i can do for you,do also note that,any initial deposit made shall be transferred to you,when transfer is being done.Also be aware that you need to make initial deposit in due time as you do not have much time,for your account is a temporal debit account and thus has a limit of validation.

Regards,
Mr. Frank Claus.
Financial Director

Thank you BMW for the artical last April. To bad I didn't google earlier. I did send an email to the sender asking if this is a scam. thier email is: [email protected] I wonder how much $ they made? HUM..... cfl.rr.com evidently is a legite youth football league and the above address is used at bottom of page for donations for a "lukemia baby", I wonder if this too is a scam? Maybe cfl.rr.com isn't legite after all!!

Hi, people over the world. I became the same message from those company`s. In the mail they asked me to contact de delivery company. When i send them an email they didn`t answer. What do they want to gain?
Maybe we can all bring to an international court for justice.

They are playing with peoples psychology.
