- Guess they really can't hire an actual interpreter or editor...
What is really, really scary is that there are those who do fall for this stuff... and they walk among us!
- So what would happen if someone actually replied?
Wonder what the scam is behind this scam. I am sure they would ask for money to get your name off the "list".
Ahhh Lhasa you should play with them a little bit and say you ARE with the Special Task Force for internet scams!
- This is quite funny, probably the funniest spam message I've seen. I doubt that anybody would fall for that, it's more than stupid.
- I just had to share my most recent SPAM email with you guys and ask you if I am dead or not?
I am Mr.Mark Morris presently working with the Financial Service Authorities United Kingdom(FSA). I have urgent information which you might find very useful. Following investigations carried out by my office,I have discovered that there are some long overdue payment presently here in the United Kingdom yet to be claimed. These funds have been processed in your name and should be released to you ASAP as directed by financial instruments but we are realizing that the earlier documents validating this sum was re written or altered.
Furthermore, we received an email from one Paul Miller who told us that he is your next of kin and that you died in a car accident couple of months ago.
To enable me confirm the status of the information I have for you, I need you to confirm the account information below, as this is the destination we have for the funds processed in your name and the transfer should be effected by Monday 18th July 2011 13:00 Hrs.

We want to hear from you before we can make the transfer to confirm if you are dead or not.And to also know if you authorize the transfer of your funds to the account mentioned above.
When I hear from you, then I can put my investigations together and make conclusions but from what I have here it seems as though your financial entitlements in the United Kingdom is being redirected for personal interest by illegal means and you will aid us by giving me a brief on your dealings when previously trying to process release of your funds.
Kindly get back to me on my e-mail address: email@example.com
And please keep this confidential to enable me work effectively in your favor, when I hear from you, I will prove my personality to you so as to satisfy your worries and to be at liberty to furnish me required information.
Now, suppose I am dead and don't answer this email, will the thwarted Mr. Paul Miller be put out or what, when he can't get the money transfered to his account. And ain't it awful nice of Mr. Mark Morris to be so concerned that someone else might be trying to rip me off?
- I received such emails too, not exactly from Mr. Morris but I guess they change the names now and again
