Mr. Evan Williams has included a link to a BBC article about a plane crash, where he obviously took one name from the list of the dead and ran with it (and spelled it wrong). How nice.
It is my pleasure to contact you after my satisfactory appraisal and acceptance of your proven track records.
I am Mr. Evans Williams Head of Auditing Bank of Africa, Benin. On Wednesday 19 April 2000 one Mr. Andreas Schranne a German National and a property magnate whom I was his accounting officer made a numbered time(Fixed)Deposit valued at $6,550,000.00 (Six Million,Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars) for twelve calender months in my Bank Branch.
Upon Maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered that Mr.Andreas Schranne,his wife and only daughter was aboard the AF4590 plane,which crashed on Monday, 31 July, 2000 into the Hotelissimo.You can read more about the crash on visiting this site: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm
My investigation proved that he died with his supposed next of kin(the daughter Mrs. Andreas Eich ) in the crash. The total sum $6,550,000.00 is still in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim the fund.
Consequently, I shall present you to stand in as the next of kin to the late Mr. Andreas Schranne so that the proceed of the account value sum of $6,550,000.00 will be transfer to you and both of us we share it. Sixty five percent (65%) for me and Thirty five percent (35%) for you. Upon acceptance of this letter I shall give you all the details you need to know about the deposit.You do not need to make any travel because of this transaction, just confirm your participation and all you need do is to forward an account where the money will be transfered to after the necessary paper works are done.
I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law as I will use my position as the Bank's Director and his accounting officer to secure approvals and guarantee the successful execution of this transaction.
Please be informed that your utmost confidentiality is required.
Awaiting for your urgent reply.
Best Regards, Mr Evans Williams

Ugh...that's sick. You should reply, "I know you require confidentiality, but unfortunately that's not an option. I think you know what I mean."
My brother got a very professional looking e-mail from eBay, explaining that he needed to confirm his account information, and would be please enter his name, address, SSN and credit card number in the form below. He sent the form back to them, but written in pieces in the boxes was "Oh man, I don't know who you are but you guys are so NFBSKed! You really must think I'm stupid."
He forwarded the original e-mail to the police and we haven't heard from them again.
