Lol Mr.Grim...

I've been receiving hundreds of such emails since 2003...

It's a relatively new scam they are pulling, with several reasons that they want to transfer money to you.
If you agree, they ask you for bank papers, ID photocopy, make it seem convincing. They also have some fake websites that are supposedly the bank ones...

The point of all this, is that they ask you to send them in advance about 100-300 $ , depending on the scammer, which will be the only amount they need to arrange the bank transfer, cause the million dollars are locked and they cannot pull not a penny out of them, supposedly.

So to conclude, this scam is only to take from you (and from lots of others too) about 100-300$ . That's it, you're the victim if you do so

Obviously, anyone with a healthy sense of duty, (greed) Patriotism, (greed) and Honesty, (Greed!!)
Would contact Mr. Faso ASAP and get this rolling for him. In fact, you may want to actually include all of you banking and personnel info in the response in a effort to save time.

Well I was thinking this was a scam and I have no intention of giving a total stranger my bank details but I just wanted to know what other people would do, thanks for your replies and keep them coming.
