PARTNER MANAGING WILLIAMS HENRY SOLICITORS
(Is he Williams Henry, or is he a partner in managing a person named Williams Henry? Also, didn’t I hear something once about not trusting people with two last names?)
EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org (even though the email you mailed it from was some poor SOB on Peoplepc??)
On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Prof (I didn’t realize Late Prof was a title) Roger Michael Needham. I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter was returned undelivered.
I hereby (well, if he is hereby trying …) attempt to reach you again by this same email address on the WILL (Wow, my email’s on someone’s will?) . I wish to notify you that late Prof Roger Michael Needham made you a beneficiary to his WILL. He left the sum of Fifteen Million, One Hundred thousand (what did thousand do to not deserve to be capitalized too??) United States Dollars to you in the Condicile (not even a word) and last testament to his WILL (quit yelling WILL!).
This masound strange (masound strange? Is this like haz cheezeburger?) and unbelievable to you with the current upsurge in cyber crime and the likes, but it is for real and true Being a widely traveled man, he must have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were nominated to him by one of his numerous friends abroad who wished you good (Ahhh, that must be why I don’t remember having such an accomplished friend. I was nominated. Now it’s clear.).
Prof (Do you get the feeling that they aren’t sure if professor has one or two fs, so they are just abbreviating it? I mean, I do that sometimes) Roger Michael Needham, an engineer/Computer scientist who worked as Director, Microsoft Research limited,Cambridge before he died (oh, not after he died?) on 1st March in the year 2003 and was patron of the Royal Academy of Engineering and also member ofvarious societies andorganisations .
He was a very dedicated Christian who loved to give out (is give out like put out?). His great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his life time one of which was the Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
Late Roger Michael Needham died on the 1st March in the year 2003 at the age of 68 years, and his WILL is now ready for execution.According to him this money is to support humanitarian/philanthropic activities and to help the poor and the needy in our society. Please if I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavour to get back to me (nothing says I really don’t know English as well as endeavour to get back to me) as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job. I hope to hear from you in no distant time (Well, okay, maybe this sentence says it better.).
