SPAM (a lot)

I've been getting a lot of spam mail lately. A lot of junk emails with crazy titles like "Magic Stick" and "I show you how far the rabbit hole goes." And I never open them. I immediately erase them. But this most recent spam email came to a different address and it automatically opened to this incredibly crazy letter from some man (or so i think) who wants to give me millions of pounds (that's moola, to you Americans). I realized I had to share it. Please note the fabulous spelling and the wondrous mismatched sentence structure: Needless to say, it's "proof just to proof." Enjoy!

204 Wilmer Lane
United Kingdom..

Dear Friend,

I am Larry kane retired excutive with Barclays BankPlc London United Kingdom.I am the personal friend to Dr. David Clemetson 40 years of age who is from United State. who died on January 31st 2000 with Alaska Airlines Flight 261.You can as well confirm the above information by going through this CNN under stated Website of the incident
(i removed the website)
Dr. David Clemetson was a medical doctor who sepecialised in internal medicine before he died . He based in United States of America . He used to come to London to visit me and my family .Two months before his death, he visited me here in London and wanted to establish a world class hospital which I was helping him to open . All the requirements needed to open the hospital were ready , including the money for the project. He deposited the money for the project with my bank Barclays Bank Plc, which I helped him alot for that with my position with the bank then.

He went back to United States to prepare his coming back to London for the hospital project.But I was surprise to hear through CNN that my very good friend whom I was waiting for was involved on January 31st 2000 with Alaska Airlines Flight 261 plane crash,that crashed into the Pacific Ocean not far from Los Angeles. The worst of it all , is that He died along side with his family members which includes his wife Carolyn and children Coriander, 9, Blake, 7, Miles,6, and Spencer, 6 months.

Since the death of my good friend Dr. David Clemetson,I as his good friend and account officer have made several enquiries to locate his surviving relation, without any success until my by retirement last year,because himself David and his family members were involved in the same plane crash. I am sheding tears of sorrow as I am writing this mail to you.So, just last week, the bank again issued me a notice to come up and present the next of kin of my friend or a relation deposited fund which my late friend deposited with them.

It was because of the above reason that I decided to contact you on the course of my late friend's relation since you are a foreigner like him and both of you are not from Britain. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating and securing the wealth left behind in a fixed deposit account by my late friend David Clemetson, before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank.Since the board of the bank, has issued a notice, that after two weeks(2 weeks) from now and no next of kin shown up for the claim, the funds will be confiscated and declared unserviceable.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating Dr.David Clemetson relatives for sometime now, I seek your humble consent to present you as the Next of Kin and relation of the deceased since you are a foreigner with my late friend. So that the proceed of this deposit valued at £6.5Million British i Pounds Sterling can be released to you.The bank will release the funds to any person whom i present as the next of kin to my late friend and client. To crown it all, I have all related information/documents to the bank account. And all these are under my control which I can produce any time it is required for the process.

Please,do not fail to visit the website above for your confirmation and proof just to proof because I am aware of many scam mails and letters that are going on around the world and espercialy in the net. All I requires is your honest cooperation to enable us to the realisation of this money successfuly.I guaranttee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law.

Further details awaits your response by email.

Sir Larry Kane

I got a similar email about the same person but from a big law firm in london. Just out of curriosidy I checked it out and the law firm and the gent who sent the mail are real people. But I beleive it is all a scam where you have to send money to open a account over seas in order to get the money transfered.
