These are the easiest to spot as scams, no one is going to give a stranger money to "support your humanitarian activities and to help the poor and the needy". Using a tragedy to try and steal from people is as low as someone can get, too bad these parasites can't earn money in honest ways.

FROM THE DESK OF DAVID SMITH

Attention: Client

On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Michael Gambone and immigrant who was a gas consultant here in UK, who happens to be one of our very good clients. He died with his wife(Deborah Gambone)on board the Swissair Flight 111 , which crashed into the Atlantic off Nova Scotia.

I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter was returned undelivered. I wish to notify you that late Late Michael Gambone made you a beneficiary to his WILL. He left the sum of Ten Million British Pounds Sterling to you in the Codicil and last testament to his WILL.

This may sound strange and unbelievable to you, but it is real and true. Being a widely traveled man, he must have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were nominated to him by one of his numerous friends abroad who wished you good. According to him this money is to support your humanitarian activities and to help the poor and the needy in our society. Please if I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible to enable us obtain all the neccesary funds release document so remittance can take place.

I await your prompt response.

Yours in Service,

Bar. David Smith
