Another Scam: from John Galvan Esq. - AIG Private Bank Plc.

I was contacted by a man named John Galvan Esq. working for AIG Private Bank Plc. Isle of man, 12 portland street, portland M13LF, United Kingdom. He told me I was a lost relative of a rich man that was killed in an accident .He finally found me and would work with me to receive 15,500,000.00 British Pounds. Daven Morgan was the Director of Foreign Operations. I worked with them and was told I must pay 15,500.00 Pounds to transfer the money out of  UK. I told them that was impossible. They then said transfer to a new bank account we can set up for you.and it will only cost 7,750 Pounds. I said that was impossible.They then said I could do it in increments. I sent a Money Gram from Panama where I live to the address above for $500.00 US dollars and it was taken by someone else is what they said. 

If we work really fast they could be cought first thing in the morning. I am supposed to send them $1,400.00 Us dollars today to arrive first thing in the morning Dec. 23. Joan Robert is to collect it at the Western Union office I guess which is close to the above address.
