iNheritance

Well, this is a chicken receiving his inheritance in British Pounds Chicken(as opposed to Pounds Sterling)

If this seems like nonsense at a glance it's because I've received the same spam mail 3 times

Greetings,
We wish to notify you again that you were listed as a Heir to the total sum of (Three Million Six Hundred Thousand British Pounds) in the codicil and last testament of our deceased client. Name now withheld since this is our second letter to you.
We are reaching you the second time because her instruction stipulates that this fund should be paid directly to you upon her death.
If you receive this notice, we request you to kindly acknowledge officially to enable us file in all necessary legal documents to the paying bank for the urgent release of your inheritance.

Please call urgently or send an acknowledgement email to enable us process your inheritance.
Yours Truly,
James Patton



EDIT: Just to keep all my cool internet chums up to date. As of August 15th I'm up to 6 copies of this message from 3 when I posted this.

  1. It always makes me sad when I find out that one of my "relatives" die. I hardly even knew them, then their death comes and sends me into regret. Then I wonder why I didn't know I was related to the king of Zimbabwe.

  2. For bonus points I got another one today.

  3. Spammers need to take more "English as a Second Language" classes. It doesn't matter whether their first language was English. If it is also their second, some gaps could be filled. They could begin with the lesson entitled "How to Sound Intelligent," which includes an entire section on how to "Persevere Beyond the Second Paragraph."
