A Scam Email with the Subject "PLS REPLY SOON" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 12 Aug 2006 04:12:04 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was KELVIN AGU <kelvin_agu@virgilio.it>, although it may have been spoofed.

My name is Kelvin Agu, THE EASERN DISTRICT MANAGER OF UNITED BANK FOR 
AFRICA PLC. (UBA). There is a domiciliary account opened in this bank 
in September of 1995  in the name of Mr. Morris Thompson, an expatriate 
who then was the manager of a Petrol-Technical Support Services 
Company. Mr. Morris Thompson died in an auto crash in 2000

After going 
through this account, I discovered that the account has been dormant 
since the death of  Mr. Morris Thompson. The account s next of kin is 
his wife who also died in the same auto crash and the account has no 
other beneficiary.  This has made it impossible for anyone to lay 
claims to the funds in the account. The top echelons of the bank are 
also not aware of the details of this account because of its length of 
dormancy.  The amount in the account is $4.5Million US Dollars. I have 
also observed that if nobody comes to claim this money, it will be 
forfeited. 
 
I therefore want to transfer this money into a foreign 
account of an individual or corporate body for safekeeping and 
investments.  Since the funds belong to a foreigner, it becomes 
imperative that only a foreigner can lay claims to it. This is where 
your co-operation and partnership is needed. And with my position and 
knowledge of the history of the account, the transaction would be a 
huge success. 
 
You will be given 20% of the total money, 75% will be 
for us and 5% will be for expenses both parties might incurred during 
the process of transferring. The transfer of the money to your mandated 
account will take not less than  7 bank working days
 
I look forward 
to your response by email 
 
Best regards, 
 
Kelvin Agu
