This email with the subject "from Larry Gaddis" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 22 Jul 2010 02:46:34 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was "Larry Gaddis" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

I work as a senior investment consultant for the DBS Capital Investment I work in between Asian and 
part of  United Kingdom.  I had taken pains to find your contact through personal endeavors. 

Approximately six months ago I discovered a total of US$12.5M (Twelve Million, five hundred 
thousand United State Dollars) with my department. With interest at today’s value, the said 
invested fund is now worth a little under US$20M the investors Lawyer notified my department of the 
sudden death (Car Accident) of His client the Lawyer expressed concern that the investor had died 
without a will and he has no details of any surviving relatives. The lawyer has now requested my 
department to check our records to clarify who the late investor may have named as his next of Kin 
on the investment application. Unfortunately, the person named as next of kin, was his Fiancee who 
also died in the car accident. I have not yet notified the lawyer that the next of Kin was the 
Fiancee. I virtually have another 14 working days to do so. 

Should I notify the lawyer of my findings, automatically; the invested funds will be confiscated by 
DBS Capital Investment and will be diverted elsewhere or be shared by the directors for their 
personal gains. On the basis of my worries, I decided to act fast by contacting and inviting you to 
work with me by posing as a relative of the deceased, with my insider’s privileged information, the 
funds can be paid to you as the only surviving relative. I have all the information and guidance to 
enable you and I realize this opportunity. I have evaluated the risk analysis and there is none, as 
long as you maintain confidentiality. 

As you should understand, I am taking a great risk contacting you and making this proposal. 
Therefore, you should understand why I must say no more about this transaction until I receive an 
email from you confirming receipt of this letter. 

Once secured communication has been established between you and me, detailed clarifications will be 
dealt with, such as what each party stand to benefit and time scale and procedures. Time is not our 
favor. Please establish secured communication with me through any of the above means.more details 
or send an email   


Yours truly
