    i hope you're joking with this question.
    Sure, and "her" father used to be some oil kingpin, tribal dictator or whatever...and his trasure got lost during a rebellion, or Interpol froze it for war crimes...

    May open an account with ?1 pound and see what happens

    Also may give my other scammer her details, and so could transfer the money. LOL

    Giles,

    Don't open anything and don't give her any info about yourself.

    My suggestion to you is to try to stay away from strangers offering you financial translactions altogether.

    Classic scam. She sends you a certified check, you deposit into account, she knows account, withdraws money, bank comes back a few days later and says certified check was bogus, bank realizes money is gone, you are held liable and must pay back amount taken as it is your account and you brought in fradulent check. She enjoys money while you go to court for fraud. have a nice day :-)

    some people love posing as "hurt" if they receive advice exposing a plot as scam...what's funny is they will hurt even more when the scam unfolds successfully and they have to reckon with police, judges and perhaps criminal charges (because honestly you know nothing about "him/her/them/it" and it could be a straw man from some group dealing with illegal activities. Who knows, police could be watching that already ). At which point good luck with both the financial loss AND the likely indictment.

    As well, only one person in a million ignores these scams, already played thousands of times. I got a letter claiming i had "won" 1 million pounds, but had to supply bank coordinates. In connection with such "Nigeria" styled frauds millions are wasted every year and many are reported as missing (yes, the hurting smarta$$ who -puzzled- bothered to hunt them down ).

    But as i say, go ahead & get rich quick in my face.
