This email with the subject "For Your Urgent Attention" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 21 Aug 2006 05:16:17 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.
The sender was "Gary White" <email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am Gary White,a financial Consultant /Account portfolio manager based and working in London UK, working in one of the leading finance houses and I happen to have managed a particular account for a Resident Foreigner,here in the United Kingdom,who died Intestate, leaving in our care a sizable amount in a domiciliary United States Dollars Investment Account.
For some reason this client does not have an easily identifiable next of Kin and I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients relatives; immediate and extended, this has proved unsuccessful, hence I am contacting you "based on the fact that you have similar names". I need your assistance in securing the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance House here in the United Kingdom. The Finance House has already issued a Government Mandatory formality notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the account confiscated and this should expire within a month.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of his relatives for over two years and convinced that no one is coming up and having satisfied the mandatory legal requirement of Beneficiary/next of kin Notification, I now seek a Reliable and Trustworthy person,with your consent and perfect understanding, to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account initially valued at Twenty One Million, Three Hundred And Twenty Thousand United States Dollars, interest not inclusive, can be paid into an account to be provided by you(preferably) outside the United Kingdom Financial Institutions or its Isles), as the perceived Next Of Kin Legally and Otherwise.
All I require is your honest cooperation and confidence in me; which I know would not come easy. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate background that will protect you from any breach of the law. I would advise that you give this positive consideration and get back to me soon. I'll be flexible and considerate in the percentage share that will be given to you for your assistance.
Upon receipt of your response we will exchange contact information so that we can reach each other for further discussions.
