This was sent to me and I almost fell for it, until they asked me to go to the nearest money gram transfer agency and send them $350.00 to supposedly open an account with his bank in France. The bank was First Trust Bank in UK. This was a pretty good scam, because the name that this individual used was a true persons name whom is extremely wealthy beyond reason. The deceiver portrayed themselves to be a man by the name of Bernard Arnault who actually exists. They also used a direct link in the email to this guys wikipedia information. The last email seemed like it came from the bank that I mentioned. There was a link to click on that would bring up an online bank registration form. These people are pretty good so beware.

It is good you have responded on time and I am glad that you can handle this money that I am going to hand over to you, I hope that this money will be a blessing to you and all whom you might choose to share with.
As I wrote to you before in my previous email, $3,500,000.00USD (THREE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS) is yours for keep. It would touch my heart to reach out to others far off, not related to me. Please accept this from me as my contribution to humanity and blessing to others.
ATTACHED IS A LETTER OF RELEASED OF ASSET AND THE CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT ALSO WITH THE POWER OF ATTORNEY for your favor which I have prepared beforehand. MAKE SURE TO FILL IN YOUR INFORMATION and send the documentation along with your information's to the paying bank as an application for the donation to be sent to your nominated bank account. As I have informed you in my previous email, due to the dementia disease affecting me, my doctor has warned me against the use of electronics, I might not be able to get in touch with you as often as I would like to, but I will try as much as possible to write you when I can.
I want you to promise me that you will get in touch with the bank and get the money, it's better with you than in the bank. My blessing is with you! Enjoy your life. Now, get in touch with the paying bank to disburse the funds to you.
I have also sent a REFERRAL EMAIL TO BNP PARIBAS BANK, so the paying bank is already waiting for your contact email. At your convenient do send me a personal photograph to enable me get a better picture of who I'm making a donation to.
TAKE NOTE: Kindly print out the right to claim document, Fill in the required details and email a copy of it to the bank to enable them start the release process of my donated funds to you, And also send the other documents along as well.
