Default I've got an Inheritance fund. LOL

I received this email today. For some reason my scammer rule didn't pick it up.

From

(WORLD BANK ASSISTED PROGRAMME)
Directorate of International
Payment and Transfers.
New York, NY 10017, USA
Our Ref: WB/NF/UN/XX027

Attn: Beneficiary,

IRREVOCABLE RELEASE OF YOUR PAYMENT

We have actually been authorized by the newly appointed UN secretary general,and the governing body of the UNITED NATIONS monetary unit, to investigate the unnecessary delay of your inheritance fund, recommended and approved in your favour.

During the course of our investigation, we discovered with dismay that your payment have been unnecessarily delayed by corrupt officials of the Bank who are trying to divert your money into their private account.

And so on ....

Wish it were true.

Bazza

Sorry Halo. I posted it as a reminder to others that anti-spam rules don't always pick up spam sent to us. Not to encourage all MG members to submit their latest attempt to be spammed. Also to point out that they don't know my name despite the fact that I am the "inheritor"

Whitelist, Bazza, whitelist. NOBODY emails me unless I specifically allow them.

Mind you, it takes a fair bit of dumpster-diving to get some legit mails, hehehe.
