I have millions waiting for me


I just got this email that sounds pretty serious. Apparently some unknown governing body of some unknown country has an unclaimed fortune from some unnamed relative, just waiting for me to collect. Here is the email:

From: (No Name)
Subject: GET BACK TO ME
Sent: 10/16/2009 6:54 AM

FROM : Scott Peters (Esq)
I have emailed you earlier without a response. In my first email I mentioned about my late client whose relatives I cannot get in touch with. I am compelled to do this because I would not want the bank to push my client`s funds into the bank treasury as unclaimed inheritance.
The Governing Body of the Bank has contacted me on this matter and I am  yet to provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the Fund.
Under a clear and  legitimate agreement with you, I shall seek your consent to be presented as the  next of Kin so that my late Clients’ Fund will not be Confiscated by the Bank and pushed into the bank treasury as unclaimed bills.
For the sake of Transparency on this matter, you are free to make immediate contact for further clarification and explanation on this matter.
I will need you also to reconfirm your full name and contact telephone number to ascertain the fact that I am dealing with the right person.
Please contact me directly on my private email address (scottpeters60@gmail.com).
Upon receipt of your response i will give you the details of this transaction.
Note that this claim is legitimate.
I await your prompt response.
Best Regards,
Scott Peters (Esq)

Here is my response.

Scott:

Sorry for being so slow getting back to you, but I was certain the email was sent to me in error, as my uncle Stu (surname Ped) had left explicit instructions that his money was to go into the government coffers.

While I have no doubt this claim is legitimate, in legal circles, I would not like to be the one that went against Stu Ped’s last wishes to have all of his estate eaten up as unclaimed funds. It would be rather disrespectful to the dead, would you not agree?

I consider this matter closed, so there is no reason for me to send you my telephone number, as I wish no further conversations on the matter. Please be respectful of the dead and let this matter drop.

Sincerely,
I. P. Freely

Peace and Grace,
Greg
