An opportunity like this doesn’t come around very often

I had a quick look in my spam folder on my gmail account and found this. I’m lucky I looked. What makes it different from the rest of the African money emails is the link to a BBC news story. These guys have done their work. I’m convinced now. You just wait – I’ll  be a millionaire by the end of the week!

Dear Friend,
I am the officer of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of African development bank.

In my department i discovered an abandoned sum ofUS$10.5 US dollars (ten million five hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in July 2000 plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next ofkin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unlesssome body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at theplane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim…
