Dear Friend,

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I would like to 
introduce myself, I am Williams Cole and I work with the staff in the accounts management section 
of a well-known bank here in the United Kingdom.

One of our accounts is holding a balance of Ј15,000,000 (fifteen million British Pounds) and has 
been dormant for the past 4 years. From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this 
account is a foreigner by name of Mr. Gerald Stone who died on the 4th of January 2002 in a 
planecrash in Birmingham here in the UK.

Since then no one has responded in anyway in regards to claiming the funds. As far as we can tell 
he has no family member who are aware of the existence of either the account or the funds. 
Information from the National Immigration Office also states that he was single on entry into the 
UK.

I have confidentially discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to 
find a reliable foreign partner to deal with us. We thus propose to do business with you, standing 
in as the next of kin. We will process these funds from the deceased and release them to you,after 
due processes have been followed.

This transaction is totally risk free as the funds is legitimate and does not originate from drug, 
money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. Think this over and should you be interested, 
please let me hear from you.

Regards,

MR WILLIAMS COLE

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.
