Scammers Impersonate Stephen Hester

Evidently the cretinous scammers are not aware that RBS is not having an easy time of it these days, otherwise they would never have sent the following missive (twice) allegedly from Stephen Hester CEO of RBS:
"From Mr Stephen Hester. 
P O Box 10720 
Victoria Street 

Good day, 

I am Mr.Stephen Hester, the Group Chief Executive of Royal Bank of Scotland. I personally discovered a dormant account with a total sum of GBP35,000,000.00 [THIRTY FIVE MILLION BRITISH POUNDS] during our Bank's Annual Year Account Auditing. Since the death of the deceased, nobody has operated in this account till date. Moreover, this account has NO BENEFICIARY attached to it. 

Definitely, this fund will be confiscated by our BANKING CODE OF ETHICS if it remains dormant for a period of [10] year without any claims. In this regard, I earnestly need your full cooperation in transferring this money out of our bank to avoid our bank confiscating this fund. 

As the Group Chief Executive of our bank, all our client account details and file are in my possession and that makes it easy for me to include your name as the beneficiary of the fund in all necessary documents involving the money we wish to transfer out from our bank. Most importantly, you will be required to: 
 (1). Act as the original beneficiary of the funds. 
(2). Receive the funds into a business/private bank account. 
(3). At the completion of this transaction, the sharing rates shall be 50% for me while 50% for you. Note: I will split the transfer into two 2 stages for easy and smooth transfer. 

Firstly, the sum of GBP30,000,000.00 will transfer to any valid foreign account you will nominate, then upon a successful transfer without any disappointment from our side; I will then fly to meet you in your home destination for sharing, thereafter we will jointly transfer the remaining balance of GBP5,000,000.00. 

I will also like us to invest some part of the money in your country. If you accept to work with me, you will be given 50% of the total money as your share and 50%. So the main question is, will you partner me in this transaction. If you are willing to cooperate in this project, 

Kindly view my identification link below and also contact me through my private email: 


 Best Regards 
Mr Stephen Hester 
Group Chief Executive Royal Bank Of Scotland"
