My Implausible Inheritance
This morning, I got the following spam email, trying to convince me to get involved in inheritance fraud:
This is to notify you again for the last time that you have been listed as an Heir
to the total sum of ‘Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand Great British Pounds’ in the
codicil and last testament of the deceased (Name now withheld since this is our
second letter to you). Our contact to you is based on the legal fact that you bear
the same last name identity with the deceased therefore we can present you as the
heir to the inheritance.
My last name: Cook. Have all the Cooks in America been contacted for their share in the inheritance?
