A Scam Email with the Subject "Hello" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Tue, 31 Aug 2010 03:16:18 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was "Mr A Gershkovich" <adam.gershkovich@mail.ru>, although it may have been spoofed.

Hello,

I know this email might seem a little strange as it is out of the blue but I ask for 2 minutes of 
your time to hear me out.

My name is Adam Gershkovich, I have worked very hard all my life but due to me caring more about my 
business than my health and ignoring all the tell-tale signs, I am now dying of thyroid cancer.

All family members and close friends that I trusted over the years have all betrayed me.

I have always believed in the relief of poverty and the advancement of education which is why I 
want to give away the last of my wealth ($30.5Million) to non-profit organizations. 

I can not do this on my own and need your help to secure and distribute the amount, which is why I 
have contacted you. I do not expect you to do this for free which is why I will give you a 
percentage of the said amount.

If you do decide to help me I will get back to you with more information.

Thank you for your time

Adam

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
