A Scam Email with the Subject "Regards!" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 24 Feb 2010 06:48:57 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Mrs. Beatrice Tan Goh"<email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am Mrs. Beatrice Tan Goh, a staff of a security and safe deposit company in Singapore. I am in charge of Files and Records. Over the years I have discovered in record a particular safe deposit box which has remained dormant and unclaimed. Due to my past experience in a case such as these, I decided to engage the services of a private investigator to locate the owner but was informed after the investigation that the owner was a spy for the Chinese Government and has been confirmed dead.
This information, I do not want to pass unto my superiors for they will take possession of the money and all contents of the box for themselves, while I will be given peanut to keep my mouth shut as usual.
I came to these decisions in seeking the assistance of someone NEUTRAL to lay claim to these safe deposit box to enable me a better %.
I really do not know who to trust as my past experiences with my company has made me not to trust any one or talk about our company which is one of her standard procedures for securities.
I decided to contact you, even as I don’t know you before but because it will be much safer for me.
I had secretly verified the content of the box, this action is a grave violation of the policy of this security company; however I discovered that there is Twenty Two Million Euros in cash as stated in records, some documents and a sealed envelop, which I suspect contains the pin numbers of a Swiss account.
Please let me hear from you ASAP. Please I am sorry I can’t share more than these for now until I hear from you, please respond, This is my private email: (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Mrs. Beatrice Tan Goh.
