Is this normal?
« on: March 15, 2016, 02:27:27 PM »
Less than a day on the site, and I get this message:

Pls, my sincere apology if this message don't meet your personal ethics, I have to contact you via this medium cos I desperately need to get in touch with someone as you cos someone I presumed to be your relative because of the similarities in your last names who was an investor with our bank but died in a plane crash in Venezuela 16/8/2005 has just come to the limelight in our bank because since 2005 that he died his portfolio and investment worth 9.8 millions Pounds has not touch because no name next-of-kin was found in his bio-data form, now, this investment has generated an accrued interest to the amount of 1.9 Million British Pounds because he was operating a domiciliary pounds account. The bank management has therefore authorized me as the Associate Professor of Accounting and Finance of our Bank to locate any living relative of this investor so that the funds can be paid to the family of the late investor in line with the banking ethics & policies. I came to you because you share the same surname with the investor, I will simply nominate & empowered you with all the relevant information (s) and documentations to enable you claim the money. If I don't do this and inform the bank I cannot locate any relative of the investor the funds will be revert / re-circle into the bank treasury as unclaimed monies and people that know nothing about the source of the funds will spend it that is the irony of the banking industry which is purely aberrational. Contact me immediately you received this email with your most direct telephone line using my private email address stated below (Henrioyim@yahoo.com) so that I can call and / or furnish you with all the details. Remember however that we are sharing the money equally as I will make the atmosphere suitable and conducive for you to successful claim the money hitch & risk-free as beneficiary.
Yours Sincerely,
Henri-Claude Oyima

Is this something I'm just going to have to deal with?

Jack

We can assume from context the writer's first language is not English. Obviously he meant "least indirect" telephone line. ;)
