EMAIL: fennersluis@yahoo.co.uk

Compliments of the Seasons:

I wish to introduce you to a business deal which would be beneficial
to both of us and which has to be kept confidential for the purpose
thereof. I am contacting you because I know that you are capable of
handling the deal and I want to invest my money in your Country.

My name is Barrister Fenners Luis, a Lawyer based in London. I wish to
seek your consent to present you as next of kin to my late client who is from New Zealand (Mr.Richard Ruth) who died in the year 2016 leaving behind the sum of
Pounds 3, 000,000.00 ( Three Million Pounds) in a Bank here in
London and no next of kin to inherit the money.

With your assistance and my professional advice we can get access to
the money because I am his Attorney and all the members of the Family
died in the Plane Crash.

We shall both share the funds. 55% for me and 40% to you, while 5%
should be for Expenses or your Government may require as Tax. I look
forward to your positive response at your earliest convenience now
that the Bank has written me twice to present his Next of Kin and if
possible send along your telephone number, your correct address and
name so I will call to give you further information For privacy and
confidentiality.

Regards
Barrister Fenners Luis
The email was sent from the email address "fennersluis@yahoo.co.uk", with the Reply-to address "fennersluis@yahoo.co.uk" and the subject "Thank God I Found You".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
