scammer story goes that a rich man just died in an accident, and he
has the same First Name as the scammee (aka potential victim) He is
asking to present the scammee as a relative of the deceased so as to
collect the money. The split is 30% of $18.5million.. which is not too
When are they going to change the storyline? It is getting boring.
This email was received hot from a quick submission, and some details are blanked out.
