One of the most common types of email scam is the abandoned bank account scam. These are messages that claim to come from a bank official who has discovered a dormant account with a fortune in it. If you’ll just help out, perhaps by posing as next-of-kin to the former account holder, then the banker (that is, the scammer), will give you a percentage. Alas, there really is no abandoned account and no banker — there’s just another advance-fee fraudster trying to pick your pocket.
