How very nice of Barclays to offer to pay me $6.8M.

Unfortunately it isn't the real Barclays, just some scammer with no money who is under the impression that I am a gullible moron.

The Auditor's reports forwarded to us shows that you have been going through hard times in the past, by paying a lot of money to see to the release of your outstanding funds, which has been delayed by some dubious officials. We therefore advice that you stop further communication with any correspondence outside this office till we transfer the funds into your bank account since you do not have to pay any money or transfer charges to receive your funds as you have met up with the whole funds transfer requirements.

The only thing required from you is to obtain the Non-Residential Clearance Form to enable us credit your account directly by telegraphic transfer or through any of our corresponding banks and send copies of our bank's telex and funds transfer documents to you and your bankers for confirmation. Should you follow our directives, your funds will be credited and confirm in your bank account within five (5) working days from the day you obtain this Non-Residential Clearance Form.

For further details and assistance on this Transfer Notice, kindly forward your Full Name, CONTACT ADDRESS, TELEPHONE and FAX NUMBERS directly to my Private E-mail:, for confidentiality of its contents.

Yours sincerely,
