Exposing Another Scammer

The same thing I've told you about before. They want to settle an estate in the UK, but do not even put my name in the e-mail. The headers indicate "Yahoo" for the mailer, not what is written in the letter. Nothing wrong with Yahoo Mail, but established legal firms do not use free Web mail services. For people who are not regular readers, this is a scam. If you get a letter like this, delete it.

What is funny is at the very end, they have the "misuse of this letter may be illegal" tag line, when the entire thing that was sent to me is illegal. Ha! 

I put in extra line breaks to make the letter fit:

From: Mrs Kathy McGowan
AGGS Consultants Service Ltd.

This is a confidential message from AGGS Consultants: private consulting firm in London, 
United Kingdom.

I have been directed to contact you with regards to ongoing investigations involving a 
deceased client of Royal Bank of Scotland. The client, who shared the same last name with you, 
died intestate so it is standard and mandatory that a next of kin be sought who may inherit the 
estate. Kindly clarify the following:

 - Are you aware of any relative of yours whose last known contact address was Zurich, 
Switzerland, with investments of considerable value with Royal Bank of Scotland?

 - If you answered yes to the above then can you establish beyond reasonable doubt your eligibility 
to assume status of next of kin to the deceased?

Understand that we are at this point contstained to share more details of this matter with 
you. We will need to hear from you urgently and hope you can assist us in bringing this inquiry 
to a conclusion.Please respond to my private email below as soon as possible to afford us the 
opportunity to close this investigation. Thank you for accommodating our enquiries.
