This email with the subject "Hello" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 10 Jul 2010 09:56:41 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.
The sender was "Michael Afonso"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I got your contact in course of my inquiry to locate relations of my Deceased Client who died in a car crash. On the 7th of August 2003 it was reported to us that my Client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car crash. The reason for this is to inherit a Contract Payment Deposits Account of $7.4 million of which the Deceased left in a Finance Firm. This request emerged when the Finance Firm contacted me for the attention of my Deceased Client (perhaps for one reason or the other they have tried to contact him and was unsuccessful) I announced his death and protocols observed. I was mandated (as the deceased's attorney) to provide the Next of Kin to inherit the Deposits or they will freeze it as" Unclaimed Deposit" Unfortunately, and unknown to the Finance Firm, the Next of Kin was among the dead in the car crash.
But rather leaving the Deposits/Account frozen hence I seek your help to claim the fund into your Account as you share same names with the Deceased and I have the required Information to execute the transaction under legal process.
Upon the conclusion of this transaction, I will come to your country, for the disbursement of this fund, which 40% of the total amount will be your compensation, while 60% will be my share for the investment I will need your help to establish in your country.
