Not only have I won a BMW and over $2 million this week, now I can have a share of a $19 million fortune just because my last name is Goldberg! I know this is a genuine offer because the situation described in the email sounds completely reasonable, legal, and logical and it came from a lawyer. It feels so good to be rich.

My names are Barrister Conyers Dill , an attorney at law. A deceased client of mine, who here in after shall be referred to as my client, died as the result of a heart-related condition on the 11 November 2003. His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the Luxair Fokker-50 turboprop plane – Flight LG9642/LH2420 -Wednesday, 6 November, 2002, 18:54 GMT as reported on: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/2409267.stm
I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this deposit valued at Nineteen million dollars (US$19 million dollars) is lodged. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated. My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. All legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through.
This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from many breach of the law. If this business proposition offends your moral values, do accept my apology. I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinary confidential, whatever your decision, while I await your prompt response. Please contact me at once to indicate your interest. I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible and treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity. I look forward to your quick reply.
Attorney at Law.

Dear Mr. Dill:
If Mr. Goldberg, hereinafter referred to as Mr. Midas, inexplicably fails to take advantage of this amazing opportunity, please notify me at once. I will then change my name to Goldberg — it has a much nicer ring than my own, anyway — and be on the next plane to Singapore. What plane, other than the Luxair Fokker-50, would you recommend?
