"LAST & FINAL WARNING NOTICE" screams the headline with the target's email address added for good effect.

And it goes downhill from there.

Dear [email address],

This letter is a final warning notice regarding the death of my
Late client Edward,wife and only daughter while on holiday at
Louisiana USA.

According to the laws of England and Wales,
section 46 of the Administration of Estates Act of 1925 (with
subsequent amendments).

My late client's bank has issued me a
Final written notice to provide his next-of-kin within 7 days or
have his funds declared UNCLAIMED and sent into government

I have been in charge of managing his properties here in London
for a long time. There were some of his properties put out for
sale before his death,for which payment has since been made. The
proceeds of the sale is deposited into his local account here. I
found your name in some of his documents and that is why I traced
your email through an advanced search.

I am contacting you because you bear the same last-name with my
late client.I want to know if you are in anyway related to my
late client.

Bar.Peter Mantle
