From: Mr. Anthony Watson
To: [email redacted]
Subject: in good faith...

Dear Beneficiary,

I am Mr. Anthony Watson Manager of Claims Department with a bank here in London, United Kingdom. I wish to notify you that you are clear to claim the total sum of Twenty Million Five Hundred thousand British pounds in the codicil and last testament of a deceased costumer (Name now withheld for security reasons).

Kindly Contact me for more details via my private e-mail address: wts855@aol.com or WATSON_W@email.com


Yours faithfully,
Mr. Anthony Watson



I had no idea that costume design was such a lucrative profession... By the sacred skull of Mogg's grandmother, if I were given the option I'd pull the lever that sends these slimy drones to Hell in a heartbeat.

Crooks of their caliber (as opposed to, say, Ponzi schemers) have no idea how important proofreading is. Even so, whoever heard of being allowed to claim someone's money without knowing the personal donor? And they couldn't come up with even a generic-sounding name for "a bank"?

Both are good questions! London has enough banks that this scammer could have just randomly chosen one. As for the name withheld part- Sorry, if the money was legit, then the beneficiary, at least can be told.
