George Osborne Writes

I am touched and flattered that "George Osborne" (Chancellor of the Exchequer) has written to me personally,  offering me $16.5M.

However, I am surprised that "Osborne" doesn't know that it is in fact "Her Majesty's Treasury" not "Her Majesty Treasury".

Could it be that this is a scam?

Surely not!

Advice To Scammers

I think you will find that the phrase "Dear beneficiary" is more "plausible" than "Dead beneficiary".
