Greetings James,

On June 6, 1999, a Foreign Diamond consultant/contractor with the Sierra Leonean National Diamond Corporation, Mr.Charles,who here in after shall be referred to as my client,died as the result of a heart-related condition in March 12th 2005,made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at USD$27,000,000.00,(Twenty-Seven Million Dollars).
His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the
tsunami disaster on the 26th December 2004 in Sumatra Indonesia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Indian_Ocean_earthquake

Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. Onfurther investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that he did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork before me.
I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this deposit valued at $27million dollars is lodged.
This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin,or the account will be confiscated.My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my late client, since you have the same last name,so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage.

All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next of kin will be secured gradually and forwarded to you. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through.This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

If this business proposition offends your moral values,do accept my apology.Please contact me at once to indicate your interest.

Barr.Simon Tong.

Attention:

Your e-mail address came up in a random draw conducted by our law firm, ISMAN DAVIDSON &CO Law Chambers in kuala lumpur Malaysia.

My name is Barr, Azman Bin Ismail (esq). A personal attorney to our late client Mr ABDUL, who worked for an oil firm in Malaysia. Mr ABDUl a well known Philanthropist, before he died, made a Will in our law firm stating that $2M (two million U.S. dollars only) should be donated to any Philanthropist of our choice overseas.

We have made a random draw and your name and e-mail address was picked as the beneficiary to this Will. I am particularly interested in securing this money from the Bank, because they have issued a notice instructing us to produce the beneficiary of this Will within two weeks which happens to be you or else the money will be credited to the Government treasury as per law here.

It is my utmost desire to execute the Will of our late client. You are required to contact me immediately to start the process of transfering this money to any of your designated official account. I urge you to contact me immediately for further details bearing in mind that the Bank has given us a date limit.
