I am Mr. T. xxxx, deputy senior regional manager at Lloyds TSB Commercial Finance in Yorkshire.I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On June 6, 2000, Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for forty-eight months, (being four years) valued at US$40,000,000.00, (forty Million, Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his employers, that Mr. Barry Kelly died from tsunami on his holidays in Thailand 26 December 2004. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
etc etc etc......

This is a reminder to everyone that con man are still around in this world.

A few years ago, IIRC, a gullible Singaporean guy believed the scam, went to London to claim his money but was conned at Heathrow Airport.

Ya, we found some antiques Nikons, Canons, Leicas around the Peninsular area, very near to Fort Canning site, ask them to send some money over to facilitate the digging.
