“Dr. Dave Morgan” claims to be from London, so why is he using an email address in Portugal? And old Andreas Schranner, well, he seems to have had money hidden in hundreds of banks all over the world, from the number of times his name is invoked by scammers. (Poor fellow!) But the real innovation of this message is that it included as an attachment, not shown here, a photo of “Dr. Morgan”! He looks like a decent businessman; and the person in the (stolen) photo probably is a decent businessman. Identity theft is part and parcel of the advance fee fraud game.

subject Could you consider working with me ???
Could you consider working with me to receiving this sum of Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (US$10.5m) to your country for establishing a medium size industry in your country? The said 10.5 Million Dollars was deposited in our security company (Safe Deposit Centers) here in London by Mr. Andreas Schranner, a German citizen who died in a plane crash in the year 2000.
Our company has tried to contact any of his immediate family to come forward for the claims but could not succeed in relocating any of his family. We discover that the late German died along side with his wife and children who supposed to be his next of kin.
