The following is one of hundreds of emails I have received over the past two years informing me of millions of dollars awaiting my reply:

From: Ms.Catherine Jones
Date: 8/1/2007
Subject: Your quick response will be highly appreciated.

I want to use this medium to inform you that your US$45 Million which was
bequeathed to you by a benefactor as a Next of Kin has been approved for
immediate release to you.

Due to the problems associated with transferring large sums of money from one
country to another on a bank to bank basis, we have decided to have the funds
delivered to you in cash with the aid of Diplomats who have the 
capability to do so.

Please note that the said funds have been bonded and packaged in such 
a way that
no amount can be deducted from it and most importantly,the Diplomats 
do not know
that the content of the consignment that they will be bringing to your country
in the next 48 hours in cash.

It is therefore important you take note and do not make the mistake of 
divulging
such information to the Diplomats.

Your Complete Residential address and your direct telephone numbers are needed
immediately because the Diplomats will have to speak to you on phone when they
arrive your country before proceeding to your residential address.

Forward the requested information so that I can release the 
information that you
will use to identify yourself when the Diplomats arrive your city of 
residence.


Regards

Catherine Jones.

 

Note: Frank Edwards sent me an almost identical email on 8/18/2007 with subject "YOUR FUNDS".  Hopefully, it's just a coincidence both emails promise me $45 million, and that the offers are both valid, and from different benefactors.
