I've got spam

I get about 300 spams a day, most of them pretty unremarkable.  In fact I don't even see most of them at all, thank you SpamBayes.  But this morning I received one classified as "suspect" which was remarkable for its charming broken English and delightful twisted logic, so I thought I'd share.  If you fall for this one you definitely deserve what you get.  Anyway here it is for your reading pleasure:

Did you ask Mark Ferguson to act on your behalf?

Group Finance Director,

It has taken so long without hearing from you with regards to your Deposited Seven Million, Five hundred thousand United State Dollars ($7,500,000:00) Funds Transfer claim procedures that was made near conclusion as at late December 2004 by a claimed Legal Consultant {Mr. Mark Ferguson} and others.  As a matter of fact, since the Prudential Bank information has your name/contact information as submitted by these people and has you as the claimant, my Bank concern is this: why such unnecessary delays at your end, is everything alright with you?

My Boss, Group Finance Director of Prudential Bank do not have any iota of ideas, why it has coursed you so much delays before presenting/explaining yourself for your own late relation's claims as clearly submitted/computed with the Prudential Bank International Remittance department.  It surprise to the Bank that, the said Mr. Mark Ferguson could present your information clearly and correctly as the benefactor but could not place his own contact information correctly, instead made himself an anonymous consultant, as a result, my Bank really have much to play carefulness/suspicious.

My Second question is this:  Who is Mr. Mark Ferguson, Is he your representative Consultant to this claim's?

My Boss is curious because there are series of sharp practices emanates from different people in the Banking industries this days.  Also some junior Officers of Banks do play sharp practices by claiming long-over-due Inheritance Fund's of Customers or Customer relation's deposit, without claimant consent.

Nevertheless, Since your complete contact information had been submitted, computed/accepted as the next of Kin/the benefactor to the Deposited $7,500,000 and in view of the fact that, any unnecessary alteration of claims computed data's could be of a jeopardy to claims of this nature, if your delays has anything associated with lack of the huge finance to take care of the needed expenditures: Tax as well as the Legal Probate documentations that would give you the Legal Authority, in order to get your Deposited Fund's transfer/collection made without delays, I would advise you to urgently reach out to my Boss, so that he could stand as a claimant reference person in your deposited Fund's clearance situation, thereby exploiting different waivers/ Free packages of the Bank designed for project sponsoring of this nature.

Furthermore, since delays of an Inheritance Deposited Fund's of this nature could be jeopardized by the Prudential Bank Confiscation/declaration Act/Clauses, as an Unclaimed Fund of the Bank.  Instead of loosing your Fund's, it would be pretty wise that, you politely communicate to my Boss by pleading with him on your behalf as a reference person to your deposited $7.5M Fund's claim, I am saying this as an advise, personal opinion.

For clarity purpose, do not hesitate communicating clearly/politely to the Prudential Bank Group Finance Director through his contact as information as shown above.
