    I didn't know where to post it so here goes:

    Dear associate,

    The bank directors mandated me to look for any known relation of our late client who deposited a enormous amount of money in our bank without claim; I don’t want this money to go into our treasury as unclaimed bills, the banking law and guidelines here stipulate that if such money remains unclaimed after eight years, I am authorized to preparing documents officially to prove that this money have been transferred to out treasure, this will be between me and you, the request of foreigner is occasioned by the fact the depositor was a foreigner, In appreciation of your assistance, I request you send to me your direct phone number for easy communication, and reply me through my private email addresses(XXX@live.com or XXX@yahoo.com for more confidentiality, waiting to read from you soon,

    Thanks,
    XXX

    PS: - I know it's a scam but this is the first time I'm getting something like this. The person just joined 4 hours ago

          HubPages has no interest in you forwarding the messages.  Just mark them as spam.

            That's what I wanted to know. Because it would be spamming HP. So I won't do it just ignoring it for now.
