Dear Friend,
                     
I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we never meet before. I am the FOREIGN REMITTANCE MANAGER of B.O.A Bank of  Africa, I Hoped that you will not expose or  betray this trust and confident that I am about to repose on you for  the  mutual benefit of our both families.
 
I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($18.4M) Eighteen Million Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars immediately to your account. The money  has been dormant (in-active) for eight years in our Bank here without any body coming for it.
 
I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to our  deceased customer MR. RICHARD BURSON FROM USA the owner of the account who died a long with his supposed next of kin in plane crash since 2000. I don't want the money to go into our Bank treasury as an abandoned fund, so this is the reason why I contacted you, so that my Bank will release the money to you as the nearest person to the deceased customer.
 
Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interested.
 
Upon receipt of your reply I will send you full details on how the  business will be executed and also note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned  amount if you agree to help me execute this business.
 
Thanks and waiting for your urgent response
 
Best Regards

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.
