Subject: Good Day
This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated
as such. I must solicit your Confidentiality and assure you that I am
contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit.
I am Robert Brumett, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole
executor to the late Mr. Mark hereinafter referred to as my client who
worked as an independent oil magnate in my country, who died in a car
crash with his immediate family in East London on the 5th of November
My late client a formal Sub-Comptroller working with Chevron Texaco Oil
here in the United Kingdom and had Left behind a deposit of Nine Million
Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling only (£9.8million) with a
bank. After the death of my client, the finance company contacted me, as
his attorney to provide his Next of kin who should inherit his fortune
this according to them is their policy in sure circumstances.
Since the death of my client, I have written several letters to the
embassy with intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be
claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such
efforts have been to no avail. I had to inform the finance company about
my fruitless effort in locating my late client close relative or His next
The board of directors of the company just adopted a resolution and I was
mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within
the next 15 official working days or forfeit the money as an abandoned
funds. The company had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of
the company to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period
given me. Also I have received official letters in the last two days
suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal
assets in line with existing laws of the institution.
Well I have reasons very professional and I can use a legal means to
present a next of kin of my deceased client. This is legally possible and
would be done in accordance with the laws of the land. On this note I
decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a
similar last name, I was urged to contact you, that I may, with your
consent, present you to the "Trustee" as my late client's family members
as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of
kin of my client.
I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you are of the same
nationality and you bear a similar last name with my late client making it
a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity. I have all vital
documents that would confer you the legal right to make this claim and
would make them available to you so that the proceeds of this bank account
valued at £9.8million can be paid to you before it gets confiscated or
declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge amount is lodged.
I do sincerely sympathize the death of my client but think it is
unprofitable for his funds to be submitted to the government of this
country or some financial institution. My aim is to retrieve these funds
and let it be claimed by the deceased family Lineage, etc. for this I seek
your assistance since I have been unable to locate the relatives for the
past 4year now
I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased
since you have the same last name giving you the advantage so that the
proceeds of this account can be paid to you and then both of us can share
the money, 60% to me and 40% to you. I know there might be other persons
out there with the same surname as my last client, but after a little
check my instinct tells me to contact you. Can I trust you on this? I
shall assemble all the necessary documents that will be used to back up
I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that
will protect you from any breach of law. I will not fail to bring to your
notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain
any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion
of this transfer.
Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Please get
in touch with me by my alternative email:email@example.com for
better confidentiality and send to me your telephone and fax numbers to
enable us discuss further on this transaction. My contact number is
+447011137452. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue
advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you, Thanks for your
When calling you dial your country calling code which I think is 011+my
number(447011137452). That is (011-447011137452). You can also confirm the
code from your service provider.
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....
