Subject: JOHAN'S NEXT OF KIN
Birmingham, United Kingdom.
I am sorry for contacting you through this medium without a previous notice,
I had to use this means of communication because it is an easier way of
making contact with people around the world. My name is Barr. David Brown, a
consultant in practice here in Birmingham United Kingdom. I had a friend/
client by name Mr. Johan , a contractor based in London now deceased. My
client lost his life alongside his wife and only child
in 2005 while on a visit to Sri Lanka. Prior to the Death of my Late Client,
He secured a contract of US$12,500,000.00 million from the Kingdom of
Bahrain, following which he received a 30% mobilization fee of US$3,750,000.
00 Million and successfully executed the contract, but the balance of US$8,
750,000.00 Million contract payment was in the Process of being transferred
into his Account which he submitted to the Bahrain Government when he lost
his life in the Tsunami Disaster.
Three Months after his sudden death, the Government effected the transfer of
the balance of his Contract Funds into the account that my deceased Client
has on his file with the Government. As his friend, personal assistant and
his business consultant, I have been officially notified and instructed by the
bank where the money is currently deposited that I should provide and forward
the particulars of my deceased client's next of kin so that the funds in his
account can be remitted into his Next of Kin's account in accordance with the
However, as his personal assistance and close confidant, I want you to know
that my late Client died intestate, i.e he died without leaving a WILL and
all my efforts to locate any of his relatives whom I can present to the Bank
has proved abortive. Therefore I am seeking for your consent to present you as
the relative/next of kin and subsequently the beneficiary of the fund so that
the proceeds of this account valued at US$8,750,000.00 million can be paid to
you based on similarity of your name and that of my client.
I can assure you that this is a harmless opportunity and I can also assure you
that there won't be any breach of the law in the process as I am familiar with
the sequence and in control of the situation here. The bank has agreed to
effect transfer of funds on provision of my client's relation and this has to
be strictly on my recommendation thus my contact with you since you share the
same name with my deceased client. On receipt of a positive response from
you, I will furnish you with details of the transaction and also we shall
discuss your percentage before taking further steps.Do get back to me with
the information below
Awaiting your positive response
