Lots of 419's going around these days

So here's yet another 419. I'm having a difficult time coming up with anything OTHER than 419/advance fee scams, but they're all over the place. Here's another one claiming to come from an executive manager with a big-name financial institution.

This one's a little different in that it doesn't really ask for any of your information up front. Mr. John Fisher states his case, claims that it's 100% legal and asks you to contact him.

A little less threatening than the "give me all your bank info" scams, but a scam nonetheless.


From Mr John Fisher
Fidelity Investment UK

I am Mr John Fisher,I work as the Fund Executive Manager with Fidelity Investment UK, the world leading Investment & Fund Management Institution based in UK/Channel Island.

I have an investor under my portfolio with a closing balance of Forty Two Million, Eight Hundred and Seventy Thousand Dollars ($42.870m), as his first initial deposit.This investor died three years ago leaving no WILL or AUTHORIZATION for Re-transfer of his investment and its proceeds to the NEXT OF KIN.I have personally carried out an investigation on the subject matter that took me 12 months to finalize and was made to understand that the family or relatives of the investor knows nothing about his investment with fidelity and none have any records of all his deposits and investment with us,there by creating an avenue for claiming of the said funds with its accrued interest on presentation of a trustworthy person that can stand as the NEXT OF KIN to the deceased.

If you are interested i can present you as the NEXT OF KIN with proper documentation that will qualify you to have the funds claimed and on doing this,our establishment will not question the release of the funds to you as i will make sure that we comply with the banking laws and ethics of claiming the investment in our establishment.

Our sharing ratio will be 50:50.Please contact me for more details if interested.

Looking forward to hearing from you shortly.


Mr. John Fisher.
Executive Manager
