Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads

I think you're being double crossed. I received the following email today:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Do accept my sincere apologies ,should my mail digress from your personal
ethics. I will start by introducing myself as Bill, a staff in the accounts
management section of a Popular lottery establishment here in the United
Kingdom. One of our winnings of £13,852,529.00 which was announced sometime
in the month of July 2000 with File No: UNL/7587/03, ticket number 47-025458952,
serial number 20034 is still floating and yet to be collected/claimed.

Following my research and confirmations, the owner of this winning a foreigner
by name Benjamin Walter died in August 2000 and since then nobody has done
anything as regards the claiming of this money because he has no family
members who are aware of the existence of the winning.

Also Information from the National Immigration states that he was also single
on entry into the UK. I have secretly discussed this matter with the Lottery
Coordinator of our organizations and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign
partner to deal with. We thus propose to do business with you.You shall
stand in as the beneficiary of this winning from the deceased and the fund
shall be released to you after due processes have been followed.

This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is a legitimate
one that does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other
illegal act.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards,

So there ya go. Sorry to break this to you, especially after your bank account and all. But I think we need to put everything on the table. Who are these UK, anyway? Do we know they exist?
