From: "Barr. Peters Smith" <>

This email with the subject "CAN I TRUST YOU" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 20 Jul 2011 06:48:09 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "Barr. Peters Smith" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

My names are Barrister Peters Smith, a UK citizen(a Barrister and a Charttered
Accountant)I trained and work as an External Auditor for the "GUARANTY
STANDARD FINANCE BANK" (GSFB), UNITED KINGDOM.I am sure this email shall meet
you in utmost surprise. I had taken pains to find your email contact through
the "World Email Directory".

On a routine audit check last month, I discovered a large sum in an investment
account that had been dormant for twelve years now.The entire sum totaling
11.3 Million GBP Sterlings (about $19 Million United States Dollars).Now
banking regulation/legislation in the UK demands that such funds be tagged as
"UNCLAIMED FUNDS" and reverted into the BANK'S TREASURY. As a banker, I see so
much cash and funds
being reverted to the BANK'S TREASURY. I want you to stand in as the
next-of-kin since you are from a foreign country so that this huge amount will
come to us instead of being reverted into the BAnK'S TREASURY; By virtue of my
legal profession and years of charttered experience,I have legally secured all
relevant documents currently in my possession (both legal  and Banking) that
will facilitate putting you forward as the legal claimant/beneficiary of the
funds.I have exclusive access to his file and he has no next-of-kin,
whosoever,you are particularly qualified since you are from a foreign country.

For my efforts i shall desire 40% of the total 11.3 Million GBP

Please reply me on my personal email for
more details and commencement.
If you are interested, contact me urgently on my email:; or on Phone: +44-70-4573-9682
I will be awaiting your timely reply to proceed.This is a matter of
confidentiality.Keep is personal!
