Our Beat Team has been passed a letter that purports to be from the Managing director of the ‘Kiyo Bank Ltd’ in Japan. It asks the recipient to reply to the MD’s personal e-mail address. It is seeking assisance to release 74 million dollars that are held by the bank from a deceased client.

I goes on to say that the recipient will receive 45% of the money if they assist as requested. This very clearly a scam that would leave you out-of-pocket rather than the owner of millions of dollars

If you receive this or a similar letter, DO NOT reply under any circumstances.
