The sender was "BARR. GLEN ADAMS." <>, although it may have been spoofed.

I wish to intimate you with a request that would be of immense benefit
both of us. Being an executor of WILL, it is possible that we may be
to make fortune out of our client situations, when we cannot help it,
or left
with no better option. The issue I am presenting to you is about my
client who
WILL a fortune to his next-of-kin. It was most unfortunate that he and
next-of-kin died on the same day in the sharja plane crash of Tuesday
February 2004.
I am now faced with confusion of who to pass the fortune to.According
to the
English law, the fortune is supposed to be bequeathed to the
government.However,i dont belong to that school of thought which
that the fortune of unlucky people be given to the government.
My purpose of contacting you is to seek your assistance to act as the
benefactor of the WILL, and lay claim to the legacy(12.4million pounds
sterling),which this my unfortunate client bequeathed to his
next-of-kin. For
now, It is only known to me, as my client has great confidence in me.
Everything will be left between you and I. The share would be 40% for
you and
60% for me.All I have to do is to amend the WILL stating you as the
beneficiary to the 12.4million pounds sterling.
As I am yet to get your consent on this issue, I prefer not to divulge
full identity so as not to risk being debarred. The English Bar
considers it
a breach of the oath of the English Bar Council. I need not emphasize
to you
that the sensitivity of this issue need not betoyed with by neglecting
confidentiality. Due to the risk involve and also the activities of
fruadsters now rampant on the internet,and until I am sure of your
consent,full cooperation and genuine willingness to assist me for our
I would prefer that we maintain correspondence by email.At this point I
to assure you that your true consent, full cooperation and
are all that are required for us to take full advantage of this great
opportunity. This is an opportunity that people rarely have.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours truly,
Barr. Glen Adams
