A Scam Email with the Subject "hi" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 06 Aug 2011 23:54:53 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was Mr. Eric Wright <>, although it may have been spoofed.

I am Mr. Eric Wright, the Executive Auditor and head of computing department here in United Kingdom. This email is very confidential and is for you alone. I got your e-mail address through my search for a reliable person/company in your country, who can be willing and able to do business with me. I want to transfer a very huge amount of money, Fifteen Million Pounds Sterling (£15,000,000.00), that belongs to Late Mr. John Hughes, the Director and owner of Petrochemical Service from Australia. Who died since 1998 without a will. Through my investigation, I found out that no one knew about this account. And I am his personal account Manager; I have with me all the vital documents to this fund. However, I need your maximum assistance and cooperation towards this by providing me an empty bank account of yours, where the fund will be transferred. After the transfer process is concluded and the money is in your bank account, I will quickly make arrangement for a trip to your country for the withdrawing and sharing of the money. Note: The sharing ratio goes like this, you will be given 30% of the total amount of the money, while 60% will be mine and 10% goes for any miscellaneous expenses incurred during the transfer. I need a strong assurance from you that you will not disappoint me when the money gets to your bank account. Kindly reply me and briefly explain your interest towards this business. Regards, Mr. Eric Wright
