This email with the subject "Dearest One," was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 21 Sep 2007 13:58:17 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.
The sender was "Kingsley Lampty"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I know this mail will come to you as a suprise since we have not had previous correspondence, please bear with me.
I am Kingsley Lampty from Cote d Ivoire, the only child of Late Mr Patrick Lampty.
I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment I am receiving from my Uncles, they have taken away my late father's properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Parents.
I wanted to escape to anywhere I can have a good life but he hides away my travelling documents. Luckily he did not discover where I kept my fathers File which contains important documents and amongst them includes a deposit certificate of the sum of US$ 3.5 million (Three million Five Hundred united state dollars) which my father deposited in one of the leading bank with my name as the next of kin.
However, I shall forward to you the necessary documents on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer of this money out of this country for investment.
If you are willing to help me kindly get back to me as soon as possible.
I am waiting for your urgent and positive response.
Please do keep this between us for now and don't disclose it till I come over to your country after the transfer.
I am willing to offer you 20% of the total sum as compensation of your effort and 5% for any other expences you might incure during this transaction.
Thank you and God bless
