I've heard about this one, I really can't believe people fall for these things.

I'd be very pleased to look into this matter for you.

All you need to do is e-mail me your credit card number and expiry date, along with your bank account details, driver's license number, SSN, and a notarized letter giving me full authority to act on your behalf in all financial transactions, and I'll see what I can do........
