Hi,
I was hoping that someone would look into this. I've posted the e-mail in it's entirety,including the header, below. It probably is, but I thought it best to be sure. I could not find a reference to it being posted before.
Thank you

Hello.

1. It's a scam. This is probably a business proposal to set you us as a next of kin for some deceased person. Check out the next of kin section to see similar types.
2. This is a Barrister (lawyer) in the UK and he uses an Australian email server? Weird. But not in scamland. Perfectly normal for scammers.
3. Dear Friend? Does he know your name? Why doesn't he address you as Dear Jane? Simple. He doesn't know your name but as soon as you tell him he will.
4. There's no header but it probably was NOT sent from the UK.
5. why can't he tell you what the business is? Is it a secret? No, it's just another advanced fee fraud.

Definite scam.

Thank you

Hi!
Thank you. Thanks to my husband and a previous personal experience, I've learned quite a bit about how to spot a scam e-mail. Just wasn't sure about this one I've received.

Thank you for the welcome. I just found this site today and have been posting the scam/fraud e-mails that I had saved hoping that perhaps it would help people recognize a scam letter. Some are funny with many many errors. To some of these posts, I've added a little explanation, either at the top or at the bottom, stating the errors that I've found.

I hope that they help others..

:)
