Reported at aa419. Evidently this may be a second reincarnation of this bank. It appears to be copied from a real bank template.

This is a follow-up to a lottery scam. Neither the lottery nor the email you received are real. Both are fake. At this point you should stop all communication with the scammer. That's the safest thing you can do.

As of today, December 29, 2008 Nationwide has surfaced again. I received a solicitation in my junk mail this morning. Found this site and am happy to know it is bogus.

It seems as though the Nigerian criminals behind this scam are targetting people in India as well, as there is a long series of scam emails and analysis at http://www.consumercomplaints.in/complaints/detailed-investigation-c44037.html .

So much for the oft repeated claim by these scamming vermin that they are doing it "to get back at the white man for enslaving Africans" - since when have any West Africans been enslaved by Indians.

how to convince people they're being scammed

Hey people, thanks so much for all this info.
I know somebody who's ruining his life, and those around him because he believes this Bank of England is a real thing and he's sending them money. He won't listen to friends that tell him it's a scam. How can a person intervene and
make this guy realize he's being ripped off?!?! Any ideas?
I'm going to print these pages and try to get them to him, but he's so blinded by the $$ he's going to get from these people, he may not read.
thanks in advance for any help

Victim will not listen.

@laphotographer, Welcome to AFI, it can be hard to divert some one from a dream of untold wealth if they are well into the scam.
Maybe you can do a search of the web and find other examples of this same scam and then ask your friend how so many are getting the same email? also if the scammer is using a free email address like yahoo, hotmail etc, ask your friend why the bank of England is reduced to using a free email instead of their own, as every other bank does.

He will be hostile to others telling him directly that he is being scammed, so you may like to start by asking him to explain about it, as it sounds like something you could be interested in.
If you can get him talking about it them you have a chance, you can always hand him a copy of this scam and ask his advice as you have seen many of them on The internet and can he advise you ?
You have to start talking to him on his level of interest first to get through to him. deep down he knows it does not sound right, as these things do NOT happen to normal people, we do NOT get vast amounts of money via the internet for nothing, but at the moment he is caught up in the web of lies from the scammer.
If he would like to talk to me in confidence he is welcome to do so , however it may be a fight to save him before he has lost all his money and is destitute.

Central Scrutinizer has given good advice, please study the link he provided. Good luck with him.
