A Scam Email with the Subject "Dear Friend," was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 15 Aug 2010 18:57:03 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was Goodluck Joshua <goodluck_joshua@voila.fr>, although it may have been spoofed.

Dear Friend,
My Name is Dr. Goodluck Joshua. I hail from Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, West Africa.  My reason for 
contacting you is to transfer an abandoned $10, 300, 000.00 (Ten Million Three Hundred Thousand 
Dollars) to your account. The owner of this fund is a foreigner, who died since 2001 with his Next 
Of Kin. I want to present you to the Bank as the Next of Kin/beneficiary of this fund, since you 
have the same last name with him, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to your account.

However, I wish to point out that I want 10% of this money be shared among the charity 
Organizations, while the remaining 90% is shared equally between us. I will use my position as the 
late customer's account officer to guarantee the successful execution of this transaction.

The intended transaction is entirely risk free and will be executed under a legitimate arrangement 
that will protect you and me from any breach of the law.  Please if this business proposal offends 
your moral ethics, do accept my sincere apology.

If on the contrary you wish to achieve this goal with me, kindly get back to me by sending the 
below information for more clarification and easy communication.

1) Full name.......................... 2) Age.................................3) 
Address.........................................

4) Occupation..........................5) Telephone number.................. 6) Country……………………

Further details of the transaction shall be forwarded to you as soon as I receive your return mail.

Best regards,

Dr. Goodluck Joshua.
