This email with the subject "Business Partner." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 07 Nov 2007 07:52:33 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.
The sender was I WANT YOU TO BE MY BUSINESS PARTNER <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
On further investigation, we found out that he died without making a will all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless and he did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents in the bank. This sum is still sitting in the bank and No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to the Spanish Monetary law, at the expiration of nine years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Spanish government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
I have secretly discussed this matter with the Bank manager here and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner out side Spain to deal with us, although due to his position he did not want to play an open part but as soon as you follow my instructions everything will be successful because we will be working hand in hand with him.
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 and with the Bank manager everything will be perfected, all we need from you is trust and reliable that this money will be kept in your care for us to share in an agreeable ratio after all. The money will be kept in your care for us to share in the ratio of 60% for us and 30% for you and 10% for any expenses we may incur.
In your acceptance of this deal, I request that you kindly forward to me your letter of acceptance through this email address: email@example.com for more details in regard to this.
You will never regret being part of this deal, as every arrangement will be done perfectly; it?s a great opportunity for us.
