This is a classic example of a “rich orphan” scam message. Little Daniela is deaf, and both her parents are dead. Won’t you help her? And by the way, she has $48 million dollars in the bank that she’d like you to manage for her.
Do scam message like this work? They do, because if they didn’t, the scammers would stop ending them — it’s as simple as that.

I am a deaf girl. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad year 12th.February 2013.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who traveled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 6 years old, and since then my father took me so special.
Before his death on February 12, 2013 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of US$48.500.000.(FORTY EIGHT MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) left in a security company .He further told him that he deposited the money with my name,. I am a deaf girl just 25 years old and a university undergraduate and really don’t know what to do, Now I want an account overseas where I can transfer this funds and after the transaction I will come over and by your help I could settle down and plan my future.

Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded But permit me to ask these few questions:
1. Can you honestly help me as you would do to your own relation?
