I don't know about other people, but I kind of get a bit pissed off when a stranger addresses me as "dear" in an email; most especially when the author of the email is a scammer.
Dear Good Friend,
How are you today dear?
I decided to write you because I have no other alternative. Since the death of my father in the hands of the bad government of my country Darfur in Sudan in East Africa. It has been very difficult for me on how to safeguard box money my late father left for me with Private Storage Company in Canada, before his death. My late father packaged this money inside a box as family artifact.
So right now we are in Spain as an asylum seeker, and we are facing a heavy financier problem. Therefore, I want you to be my partner and to act as the new beneficiary on my behalf and claim the box of money. I will give you 30% of the total money.
So if you are interested please reply me with your full name and your telephone number so that I can give you more details.
