    Just when I thought I was safe

    I got one of these in my inbox.

    Hello,

    My name is Mr.Jason smith, I am the credit manager in a bank here in the
    United Kingdom. I am contacting you of a business transfer, of a huge sum
    of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this
    magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring
    you that everything has been taken care off, and all will be well at the
    end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this
    transaction. PROPOSITION; I am the account officer of a foreigner named
    Richard Burson who died in an air crash along with his wife on the 31st
    October 1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with other passengers on board.
    You can confirm this from the website below which was published by BBC
    WORLD NEWS. WEBSITE.

    BBC News | Americas | Who was on board Flight 990

    Since his death, none of his next-of-kin are alive to make claims for this
    money as his heir, because they all died in the same accident himself and
    his wife (May their soul rest in peace). We cannot release the fund from
    his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the
    deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon this discovery, I
    now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the
    deceased, as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the
    funds (7,800,000.00) seven million eight hundred thousand pounds to be
    released in your favor as the beneficiary's next of kin. Because after
    nine years the money will be called back to the bank treasury as unclaimed
    bills and the money shared amongst the directors of the bank. so it is on
    this note i decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of
    kin/beneficiary to this funds rather than allow the bank directors to
    share this money amongst themselves at the end of the year. It may
    interest you to know that we have secured from the probate an order of
    mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries. Please acknowledge
    receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavor by
    furnishing me with the following information if you are interested.


    1. A Beneficiary name..In order for me to prepare the document for
    transfer of the funds in your name.
    2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers...For our personal contact and mutual
    trust in each other. (50/50)share for both party 50% comes to my account
    and 50% to your account. I intend to retire after the conclusion of this
    transaction.


    If this proposal is acceptable by you, please endeavor to contact me
    immediately. Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in
    you, I await your urgent mail.

    Regards,

    Mr.Jason smith
