By far, this scamming offers is the best in my collection with a
returns in shares of 40% of the US$33 million dollars… (wow! peed in
my pants!). Not to worry, the scammer has prepared all the fake legal
documents awaiting for you to be scammed.
The more interesting
part is that the fake “rich man” who died only owned US$7.2 million in
his account, which does not equate to the cash value involved in the
subsequent paragraph (US$33 million). Not sure if I missed out any
details, but I think the scammer needs to practice or attend some
training in writing stories. He also needs to attend a Maths class,
because “$7.2 U.S dollars” is not “Seven
million Two Hundred Thousand dollars”.
