Best 419 scam of the year

In general I am impressed by the spam filtering on my Gmail account. Messages greeting me as "dearly beloved" are routinely tagged and are few and far between, in comparison to my spam-clogged Outlook inbox.

However the system must have concluded that the ex Secretary General of the United Nations did, in fact, wish to get in touch with me...

"This email is to all the people that have been scammed in any part of the world, the United Nations have agreed to compensate them with the sum of US$ 100,000."

Grammar and spelling were so good that I honestly suspect a persiflage.
