This little gem arrived in my email today:
The Late Sir J. P. Getty bequeathed the sum of £9,708,692.70 to you in the codicil and last testament to his (WILL) which is eleven (11%) of his total funds of 88,260,443.00 deposited with one of UK's biggest financial institution. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
It is one of the better phishing schemes I've seen recently. It's concise, the grammatical errors don't leap out and scream at you immediately, and it's definitely a nice appeal to the gullibility and greed we Americans are noted for. After all, don't we all fantasize about being heirs to oil fortunes?
