My mother always told me not to trust economists

Amongst the many messages I had to read when I returned from holiday was a message with the subject

Dr.George PhD in Economics

This piqued my attention. I like economists, sometimes wondered if I would apply for graduate school in economics before deciding on history. But this was obviously Nigerian spam, where the sender has to establish some credibility before they scam you for money. It was funny to see a PhD in Economics being used as the basis for why you should trust someone enough to send vital details.
My name is Dr.George , Member of Independent Committee of Eminent
Persons (ICEP), Switzerland, and London Office Chapter. ICEP is charged with the
responsibility of finding bank accounts in Switzerland belonging to non-Swiss
indigenes, which have remained dormant since World War II.
