Copy of a possible MONEY SCAM letter...and MY response to sender.

From: Gerald W***** <Gerald**************l>
Subject: +++++++++Served Email Notice+++++++++

Date: Saturday, February 6, 2010, 7:38 PM


We wish to notify you again that you were listed as a beneficiary to the total sum
of $11,300,000.00 (Eleven million One hundred thousand american dollars)in the codicil
and last testament of the deceased.(Name now withheld since this is our second letter to you).

I contacted you because you bear the surname identity and therefore can present you as the
beneficiary to the inheritance. I therefore reckoned that you can receive these funds as you
are qualified by your name identity.

To verify these funds in escrow, please call the Automated Number of the Bank and follow the prompt:

Call: +1 (646) 502 ****

Pass code: ****

Account Number: 022**********

Pin: ****

All the legal papers will be processed in your acceptance. In your acceptance of this deal,
I request that you kindly forward to me your letter of acceptance; your current telephone
and fax numbers and a forwarding address to enable us file necessary documents at our high
court probate division for the release of this sum of money.

Get back to me through the following contact mail address: **********

Yours faithfully,
Gerald W*****

 Now, for *MY* reply back that I sent just a few moments ago....

Mr. W*****,

I apologize, but this is not the "second notice" for me, being that I have never received any correspondence from you before.

Before stating any personal information about myself, my family, or my life in general, I wish to ask you for some information...

1) What is your office address and phone number?

2) Are you a Claims Attorney or Private Investigator?

3) What is the actual name of the Company that you own/are employed by that you are sending the email pertaining to this matter?

4) Are you Better Business Bureau Accredited/Affiliated?

5) Why did you not contact me via basic mail per the United States Postal Service?

6) Who is the person named as the deceased in which you are making reference to?

7) What is the name and location, as well as the address of the bank in which these "funds" are being held?

8) Where is the paperwork I am to fill out to send back as to start the claims process? I have yet to see anything upon my desk.

9) Why are you in your "office" sending out notices on a SATURDAY?

I've dealt with P.I.'s before on matters such as this. And it is NOT their norm to contact potential clients via email. Especially when it concerns claims in the amounts such as you are sending out that are "claimable".

I'm hoping you will respond quickly and proficiantiantly. This lady is not in to head games and "get rich" schemes/scams.

It's wonderful that you posted this because I think that there are many people who are not aware of the many scams that are out there these days.

There are so many variations of these types of letters and emails out there, and more types of scams being created even daily.
