Not so fast, buddy
l am Andrew shlio,
Hi Andrew, did you know, on modern computers, l (lower case L) and I (uppwercase i) are different characters?
an attorney at law.A deceased client of mine,who here
Andrew, as an attorney, I’m sure you’re aware it’s customary to put spaces after commas and periods.
in after shall be referred to as my client, died as the result of a heart-related condition on the 11 November 2001. His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the Gulf Air Flight Crashes in Persian Gulf Near Bahrain Aired August 23, 2000 – 2:50 p.m. ET as reported on:http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0008/23/bn.08.html
How sad, your client actually died of a broken heart. Boo hoo hoo.
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 $19 million dollars is lodged. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated.
Next of kin? It just gets sadder, your client is a long lost relative of mine.
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.
Oh, I see, your client merely has the same last name as I do. Funny, you at no time mention our common last name in your correspondence..
Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage.
OK — me 100%, you 0% — how about it?
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.
So you want my honest cooperation in an obviously dishonest business venture with a complete stranger, <sarcasm> where do I sign up? </sarcasm>
This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from many breach of the law.
Gee, thanks, Andrew.
If this business proposition offends your moral values,do accept my apology.
No, I don’t accept your apology.
I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinary confidential,
And I must use this opportunity to implore you to please drop dead.

Andrew, why would an attorney from KULALA LUMPUR send an email from Germany? Also wouldn’t an attorney from Kuala Lumpur actually know how to spell Kuala Lumpur?
