“Barr” Dlamini has come up with a variation on a theme.  Instead of giving me details of his fake bequest in the body of an email he has produced it as an attachment.  (He forgot the headed notepaper!)  “Sir” Robert Brent has left me millions of dollars.

Have you noticed how keen the scammers are on titles.  “Sir” or “Barrister” seem to be common.  I’d love to know why.

Whatever the reason, Sir Robert hasn’t left you anything – he didn’t even know who you are, nor does “Barr” Dlamini.

Just delete the email and don’t reply.
