I know this might come as
a surprise to you considering the amount of junk emails we all get on a
daily basis. I can assure you right now that I am not like that. I work
with a consultation firm in South Africa, we were conducting a standard
process of investigation involving a deceased client and also the
inheritance circumstances surrounding investments/deposits made by this
client with a holding firm. This client died intestate failing to
nominate a family member or partner to inherit the title over the
investments. This client had no children and all efforts to locate
family members have failed, we were hired to look for them. The subject
was a widow who lost her family years ago.
The essence of this
communication with you is to have you stand in as the next of kin to the
deceased so that the investments/deposits can be released to us. Note
that I shall provide all necessary assistance to make sure that the
deposit is released to you. My office is in charge of confirming your
relationship with the deceased to the firm and having them release full
rights to the deposits over to you. The deposit in question amounts to
six and a half million US dollars ($6.5M US Dollars).
I am offering you Three Million Dollars ($3M US Dollars) from the money if you are willing to stand in.
Once we agree I will
commence processing all legal documentations certifying you as the next
of kin to the deceased and the sole-beneficiary to the deposit.
The deceased has no
living relatives, my office searched and believe me we do our job well.
Therefore there is no one to challenge our claim and even if there is,
all it would come to is that my office made a mistake.
Right now I cannot give
you more information unless I have established that you really want to
work with me on this. I have certain requirements of course that led me
to you and just to be sure, please confirm your full name and your
country of residence. I hope you understand.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
