    Deposit Scam

    I received this email in May, a couple of times. Has anyone else also gotten this or something like it? And if so who can it be reported to? Email me please.
    Thanks, meadolninnn

    It is a pleasure to communicate with you.
    I am Philip an employee with a local bank here.
    I sincerely hope my letter does not come as an embarrassment to you since we
    have not met each other before now but I am constrained to write to you
    because of a development here in 1999 when I opened a safe deposit acoount
    for a foreign customer Mr Arthur Peever who made an initial deposit of USD
    17.5m [Seventeen million,five hundred thousand U.S dollars] in a safe
    deposit box number ...50718.
    Afterwards he never showed up again since then.
    However investigations carried out lately have revealed that Mr Peever met
    his untimely death in the 1999 Egypt Air 990 crash off the coast of
    Nantucket Island shortly after leaving John F.Kennedy International airport
    in New York.
    Since October 1999 when this incident took place till date,nobody has come
    forth to claim the deposit since he did not name any beneficiary in his
    records with the bank.
    I want you to stand in as the deceased's next of kin to become beneficiary
    so that we claim this money and for your role,I am prepared to give you
    fifteen percent of the total
    sum at the end of this transaction as soon as this money is secured with you
    in your country.
    I assure you that there are no risks involved on your side as I will use my
    privileged position as insider to ensure a smooth transaction.
    As I await to hear from you at [email protected],your absolute trust
    and confidence is highly
    solicited.

    Regards,Philip

    Don't even bother to check up on it. Of course, you could always write back saying, "Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! As a detective-lieutenant with INTERPOL, I don't normally get a chance make that much money. Tell me all about yourself, please!"
