    I got this, too. They had me until ... wait, they never had me, because I haven't filed my taxes yet. What kind of dumb sap falls for this stuff?

    I already replied to them. And I know how I'm going to spend it, too. I've got an inside source who's set up a sweet deal for me to buy some bridge in Brooklyn. I'm going to make a fortune on tolls alone.

    And today's, received moments ago?

    Hello Friend,

    I wish to intimate you with a request that would
    be of immense benefit to both of us. Being an
    executor of WILL, it is possible that we may be
    tempted 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 his next-of-kin died on the same day in the
    sharja plane crash of Tuesday 10 February

    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 proposes that the
    fortune of unlucky people be given to the

    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
    confident 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
    the12.4million pounds sterling.

    As I am yet to get your consent on this issue, I
    prefer not to divulge my 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 its 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 mutual benefit,

    I would prefer that we maintain correspondence
    by email.At this point I want to assure you that
    your true consent, fulla cooperation and
    confidentiality 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.

    Did you respond to him requesting that he contact your attorney so you can put the money into a tax shelter or off-shore account to make sure there's no trace of you receiving the money?
