Yes, I get this - and others with essentially the same message - two or
three times a week.

Ignore it. Above all, NEVER give away your bank details to anyone in
response to a plea like this, or agree to let your account be used for any
purpose. You could see the contents of your account vanish 'faster then a
speeding bullet' and find yourself well and truly in the soup.

It's a scam, of course, designed to appeal to the greed inherent in most of
us. If you fall for it, you WILL be sucker-punched.
