A scam artist wants to know if you can be trusted with £760,000,000.00 [Seven Hundred & Sixty Million British Pounds Sterling].

The scammer's grammar is abominable. I am particularly partial to his superior's job title - Top Bank Director, a position that is higher up in the food chain than that of Bottom Bank Director also known as a bottom feeder. To top it off, the thief's professional title in this fantasy of his is Financial Expert. This financial expert cannot even correctly write the amount that he wants to bait you with. Notice that £760,000.000.00 has two decimal points. Based on the first decimal point, the scammer only has £760,000.00 or $504,412.00 US Dollars; £760,000,000.00 is approximately $504,412,000.00 US Dollars.

Enjoy reading the email message below. Just remember not to fall for scams like the one below. There is no such thing as a free lunch. Never respond to email messages that you receive that are unsolicited. You never want to lose any of your money, and please be especially cautious during these difficult economic times.
