Allow me to translate “Mr Desmond Williams'” email:
“I sourced your email from a human resource profile database” = “I’m a scammer and I bought a vast list of email addresses”.
“I am particularly interested in securing this money from the Bank” = “I am hoping you will fall for my scam and start sending me money”.
If you make the mistake of replying, this scammer will start asking you to send money for fees. Ignore him.
From The Desk of Mr. Desmond Williams
Bill and Exchange Manager

Bank of Africa
I sourced your email from a human resource profile database in the chamber, my name is Mr .Desmond Williams. Account officer to late Mr. Morris Thompson from America who is an gold merchant Agent here in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso, a well known Philanthropist before he died. He made a Will stating that $10.5Million dollars (ten million five hundred thousand US) should be given to a citizen of our choice overseas. I have made a random draw and your e-mail address was picked as the beneficiary to this Will.
I am particularly interested in securing this money from the Bank because they have issued a notice instructing me been the account officer to produce the beneficiary of this before end of this 2009 else the money will be credited to the Government treasury as per law here. It is my utmost desire to execute the Will of my late client Mr. Morris Thompson since he is no more alive, both wife Thelma Thompson, and daughter Sheryl Thompson.
if you are interested, you are required to contact me immediately to start the documentation process with the help of a legal practitioner. I urge you to contact me immediately for further details bearing in mind that the Bank has given us a date limit, please act fast. I await your urgent response.
