Good Day, 

Please accept my sincere apologizes if my email does not 
meet your business or personal ethics. I will first introduce myself as 
Mr. Brinsford, a staff in the Accounts Management Section of a well-
known bank, here in London. 

One of our accounts, with holding balance 
of Â15,000,000 (Fifteen Million Pounds Sterling) has been 
dormant and 
last operated four years ago. From my investigations and confirmation, 
the owner of the said account, a foreigner by name Paul Wood died on 
the 4th of January 2002 in a car accident that occurred here in 
Birmingham, here in UK. 

Since then, nobody has done anything as 
regards the claiming of this money, as he has no family member that has 
any knowledge as to the existence of either the account or the funds; 
and also Information from the National Immigration also states that he 
was single on entry into the UK.

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

This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as 
the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, 
terrorism or any other illegal act. On your interest, let me hear from 
you. 

Warm Regards, 

Mr. Brinsford

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.
