Dear Sir/Madam

I take the liberty of writing you this very confidential mail. I implore you to give it your maximum attention as the contents are in absolute good faith.

For avoidance of doubts, my name is Barrister jerry brown, I am a full time practicing lawyer registered with the Togolese Bar Association as well as a Member of African Independent Financial Advisors.

My purpose of writing you this confidential mail is hinged on the fact that; I was personal attorney to Mr. Robert Bate, nationality of your country. Precisely on December 30th, 2003, while returning from Accra Ghana after a weekend holiday at Labadi beach Hotel, my client and members of his family (wife and daughter) died in ghastly motor accident by running into a stationery Trailer without warning sign along the Togo/Ghana Express way.

After his death with members of his family,due process was followed to alert members of the public and any relation of his through Electronic Media Obituary Announcement both in the local television station here in Togo and Ghana. Also I took personal steps to announce his death through internet advert but yet up till this moment of writing no surviving relation of my said client ever came forward.

Right now his Bankers has written me requesting me to contact any serving relation of his for the purpose of transferring his estate in the sum of 10.2 million Us Dollars.Due to the pressure from the Bank I decided to present you as the next of kin to my said deceased client and to further ask your hand of co-operation under utmost confidentiality to claim the outstanding sum by presenting you as the Next of Kin of my late client.

Needless to reassure you that as a Lawyer and personal attorney to my late client, all the necessary information and documents that will sufficiently prove to the officials of the Bank that you are the next of Kin to the deceased shall be obtained legally from the probate section of the High Court.

I would therefore request you to give this letter serious thought and get back to me urgently.You can also reach me through this email address for more information.At jerry_brown11@hotmail.com

Regards.
jerry

Dear XXXXXXX,

My name`s are Mr Mohamed Eisa Abas, a legal practitioner with EISA
& CO in Seremban, Malaysia.

I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition.

I have a client by Name Mr. Nelson ....., who was deceased in November, 2005, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am contacting you because you have the same surname as my deceased client and i felt that you could help me in the distribution of funding that were left in my deceased client's bank account. This funding is closed to be declared un-serviceable by the bank as there were no indicated next of kin or next of beneficiary of the funding in the bank account.

The total amount of cash in the bank account of my deceased client is US$ 12.5 Million ( Say, Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars Only ),The bank had issued to me a notification to contact the next of kin of my deceased client for either to re-activate the bank account or to make claim of beneficiary, of the funding in the bank account, with a month surcharge of 6% to be deducted as an Escrow safe keeping fee of the bank account, so as to avoid the indefinite closure of the bank account. My proposition to you is to seek your consent, and to present your kind self as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my deceased client, since you have the same last name with him.

This means that the proceeds of his bank account would be paid to you as his next of kin or the legitimate beneficiary. When the proceeds in his bank account are paid to you, we would share the proceeds on a mutually agreed-upon percentage of 60% to me and 40% to your kind self. All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin would be provided by me. The most important thing I would need is your honest cooperation in this proposition.This would be done under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law.

If this business proposition offends your moral and ethical values,feel free to back out. Please contact me at once if you are interested reply through
my personal email (eisa_abaschambers@mail2world.com).

Thanks for your email. You see, next of kinship is not limited to relations of the deceased, nor is it confided to the circuit of parental relationship, rather it is by choice of the benefactor as regards to whom he wish to will it to (Beneficiary) either formally by write up, or in formally by secret information disclosure to beneficiary be Him/Her business partner, relation, Kinsmen, or friends or well wishers, therefore by virtue of the above stated, you can claim to be the next of kin of the deceased.

First i have to reiterate my resolve to carry out this transaction within the jurisdiction of both local and international laws and it is for this reason that i have decided to acquire the necessary documentation with regards to the funds.

I will prepare the "WILL" and Testament bequeathing the assets of the deceased to you and this includes the deposited funds with the bank as soon as I receiving the necessary information from you. After the drafting and notarization of the "WILL"at the notary public, I will then go ahead to procure the "LETTER OF PROBATE". This document is the final document that gives you legal authorization to lay claim to the funds and also gives you the authority to request for the transfer of these funds into your nominated account. I will be sending you a copy of the "LETTER OF PROBATE" for your perusal.

I would require you to send me your personal details as listed below so that I can commence the documentation process.

1.Your full names and personal address

2.Your date of birth

3.Your place of birth

I joined Aussie School Mates yesterday and received an email from Basil Osilo. Offering me to become next of kin of a guy with the same last name as me, and I would recieve 10.2 million dollars. I new straight away this was a scam and googled his name and found out what a real dick head he really is. I'm just glad i'm not one of those people who fall for these kind of things. I pity the people who do though.
