    A new spin on an old scam.

    This email:
    From: John Cole
    To: She says
    Subject: A WILL
    Date: April 21, 2008 8:12:30 AM EDT


    Please, kindly take your time to understand the content of this email.

    I wish to introduce you to a project that would be of immense benefit to both of us. Being an executor of wills, it is possible that we may be tempted to make fortune out of our client's situations, when we cannot help it, or left with no
    better option.

    The issue I am presenting to you is a case of my client who willed a fortune to his next-of-kin. It was most unfortunate that he and his next-of-kin died on the same day in an auto-crash. I am now faced with indecision about who to pass the fortune to. According to the English law, the fortune is supposed to be queathed to the government.

    However, I don't belong to that school of thought which proposes that the fortune of unlucky people be given to the government. I therefore seek for your assistance in presenting you as next of Kin to the deceased being that you share
    the same last name with the deceased.

    Please give your response to this email via return email. I will reveal other details upon your response to this email and as soon as we establish correspondance.

    Reward is negotiable.

    Yours in Service
    JOHN COLE Esq.
    Financial Attorney
    I give them points for creativity but not selectivity of their recipients. Not so smart sending it to a real lawyer. I am actually tempted to respond just to see what happens next.
