We receive an email that you are dead and you ask one Mr. John Richard to come and claim your cheque worth $2.5million united state dollars,and he has also agreed to pay for the fee which is $100 so I am writing you to know if you are DEAD OR ALIVE, if you do not reply back before 12hrs we will have no other alternative than to believe that you are truly dead according to Mr. John Richard And if you are still alive you can get back to me as fast as you can.
Take note that every thing has been paid for it is just for the shiping fee that this Mr. John Richard has agreed to pay for if you refuse to get back to us am afraid we shall give him the cheque and collect the money from him that means that he is right that you are dead and you ask him to come and claim the cheque on your behalf.
Please take note that you have been given just two days to get back to us so that we can know if you are alive, and fill the Information Below.
We await your swift response in regard of this email we have received from Mr. John Richard

And the answer is YES! Yes, yes, yes: I AM DEAD. Now please send your spam elsewhere, take your cheque and use it to wipe your backside. Thank you.
Is anyone out there really stupid enough to fall for this sort of scam? It’s a sad, bad, crazy mixed up world we live in…
