A Scam Email with the Subject "Be the next of kin" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 30 Jan 2009 21:52:45 -0500 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Mr Chen Phang" <chen@opera.com>, although it may have been spoofed.

My name is Mr. Cho Koon, I trained and work as an external auditor for
the Development Bank of Singapore (DBS). I had taken pains to find your
contact through personal endeavors.

A foreigner with thesame last name as yours, died here in Singapore,
twelve years ago leaving behind an estate/capital (US$12.8M with
interest) here in DBS where I work, till date nobody has come forward or put
application for the claim.

I can confirm with certainty that the said investor died intestate
1994, no next-of-kin to his estate and no body came forward all these
years. I am of the settled conviction that using my insider leverage, I,
working with you can secure the funds in the account for us instead of
allowing it pass as unclaimed funds into the coffers of the Government of
Singapore. This is especially possible as you bear the same LAST NAME
to the said investor, of course you shall be handsomely rewarded for
your part in this transaction as me and my colleague are prepared to
allocate a 20% of the total funds for your efforts.

Reply with your FULL NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, TELEPHONE NUMBER, FAX NUMBER,AND CONTACT ADDRESS to my 
private email cphangdbs@i12.com
if you can cooperate

Thank you,
Mr. Cho Koon.
