Here is what I received in my e-mail yesterday:
From: "Eric Howard"
Reply to: email@example.com
This is for your information,
Sequel to your non response we wish to notify you again that you were listed as beneficiary to the total sum of US$9 Million only in the intent of the deceased. On my first email I mentioned about my late client whose relatives I cannot get in touch with. But both of you have the same last name so it will be very easy to front you as his official next of kin. I am compelled to do this because I would not want the finance house to push my clients funds into their treasury as unclaimed inheritance.
We contacted you because you bear the Last name with our Late Client and therefore can present you as the Beneficiary to the inheritance since there is no written w i l l. Our legal services aim to provide our private clients with a complete service. We are happy to set-up all modalities and administer Trusts,carry out the administration of estates. All the papers will be processed in your acceptance of this Transaction.
Note that you are to furnishing me with the requested information's bellow immediately;
Telephone and fax numbers.
If you are interested you do let me know so that I can give you Comprehensive details on what we are to do. Waiting for your response.
So much about this email is obviously phony. English is not Eric's first language and the punctuation is atrocious.
I think I'll pass. I will not be to furnishing Eric with "the requested information's bellow" immediately or otherwise.
I could give him Comprehensive details on what he is to do, especially with his modalities, but I will restrain myself.
It just struck me that "Eric Howard" is inventively close to the name Eric Holder, who was President Barack Obama's first Attorney General. How dumb does this scammer think I am?
Don't answer that.
