I just got this e-mail today:
My name is Mr. Mawn Inus, staff of a prime bank in Coast of Ivory. I am contacting you in regards to a business that will be of great benefit if you can handle it with me. I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.
In the course of my work I discovered a dormant account belonging to one Mr. Morrison Walker. This very account has been dorman for over 8yrs now after my investigations; I discovered that the account owner has died since January 2000. Since his death, nobody has come forward to lay claims to this money and recently a probate order has been issued and as such if nobody comes for the claim by the end of this fiscal year, the account will be declared unserviceable and the funds called to the government treasury.
In other to avert this negative action, I now seek your assistance to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased sine you bear the same surname. All documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the funds to be released in your favor as the next of kin. The account is worth about US$15,725,000.00 (Fifteen Million Seven Hundred and Twenty Five Thousand Dollars) and I propose a 50:50 spilt at the end of the transaction. I will be here to give you all the guidelines and advices till we get this actualized.
If you can handle this with me, I will need your full name, address, date of birth and telephone/fax numbers. With this information, I will carefully work on the account file so that you apply for the release of the money as the next of kin. I expect your speedy response. As soon as I receive your response I will provide details to you on how we can achieve it successfully.
Mr. Mawn Inus
I can't wait to cash in.
The spelling errors are awesome.
