Email scam: Winning the Japan Email lottery

Another variant, claiming to be the Japan email lottery, although the address provided is in Beijing, China. 

Also note that recent scam has a note for keeping the winning confidential. This is used as an escape route for the scammers when someone gets suspicious or contacts the police, they say that you have breeched the confidentiality clause, and hence are not eligible anymore for the award amount.

Before I start, I must firstly apologize for this unsolicited proposal to you. I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional approach to starting a relationship, But as time goes on you will realize the need for my action.

my name is Mr. Morris Brown, Audit Manager of Alpha Bank and account officer to Late Edward Han, who died with his wife and the only daughter in an Automobile crash on the 28th January 2006. Before the death of Late Edward Han, he maintained a fixed deposit account with my Bank (Alpha Bank UK Ltd) Based on this discovery, I now seek your permission and support to have you stand in as a next of kin to the Late deceased, as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the release of these funds, all amounting to the tune of (£20,000,000.00 GB) Twenty Million British Pounds Sterling Only to any nominated account of your choice.

I propose an offer of 40% of the total amount to be yours after the transfer has been successfully concluded. Let me have your Full Name, Confidential Telephone, Fax and Mobile Numbers and also your Contact Address in response to this proposal if you are interested. Please reply immediately to my private email address:mr.morris_brown@yahoo.com

Thanks and God bless.Sincerely Yours,

Mr. Morris Brown.
