Here we go again:

Hi, how are you and your family? I have been in search for someone bearing this name in your country therefore when i saw your name, i am pleased to contact you and determine how best we can assist each other. I am working with a savings company here in Ipoh, Perak of Malaysia as the manager of the warehouse department. I believe it is in my destiny for me to have come across your name. I have a business i wish to share with you. I believe it will interest you, because it is in connection with your name and you will benefit from it.
A citizen of your country deposited a consignment of One Million, Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars ($1,750,000.00), with the company i am working with in 2014 for 36 calendar months, and the due date for the deposit contract is 22nd of June 2017. Sadly, he died in a car accident in Japan. He was in Japan on a business trip where he met his end. The company headquarters’ boss does not know about his death. I knew about it because he was my friend and i was the officer in charge of his consignment at the time he made the deposit. He did not mention a beneficiary. He was not married and had no children. Last week our company headquarters’ boss requested that i should give instructions on what to do about his consignment. Should we, renew the contract or not?
I anticipated that this would happen so that is why i started looking for a means to handle the situation. If our company headquarters’ boss finds out your benefactor is dead and does not have a beneficiary, he will take the consignment for himself. I do not want this to happen. When I saw your name, i was pleased. I am seeking your co-operation to name you as beneficiary to the consignment; since you have the same last name with the deceased, our company’s headquarters will deliver the consignment to you. If you claim this consignment, the company boss will not be allowed take it. I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share as follows: you will take 50% and I will take 50% after the company headquarters delivers the money to you. My share will assist me in starting my own company, which i have been dreaming about for a long time. I am looking forward to your response. Best regards, Damia.
These scam artists will never stop!
