A spam email I just received: Dear British people

I know that this message will come to you as a surprise. I am the person in charge of the country of the United Kingdom. I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust and I am confident that I am about to repose on you for our mutual benefit.

I need your urgent assistance in transferring a sum of money from you, who are the nearest persons to our deceased welfare state who died in a banking crash in 2008, into the account of some extremely rich people within 10 or 14 banking days.

I don't want the money to go into government treasury as an abandoned fund. Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret.

I am expecting your urgent response as soon as you receive my message.

Best Regard,

Teresa May
