Nelson Mandela Foundation

The scammer states that he has recently been appointed as the director general of First National Bank of Africa and has discovered a fixed deposit of US$155 000 made in 2008 by Dana Kirk, a former basketball head coach for the Memphis Tigers men’s team.

According to the mail, Kirk passed away recently and without any listed beneficiaries. As such, the scammer would like the mail recipient to send him their contact details and country of residence so that he can deposit the money into a valid account and then recoup 50% of the balance.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation would like to alert you that this email is fraudulent and should be treated as such. View the scam email below:
