This is a classic 'next of kin' email. It's unfortunate that some people really fall for these things!

Quote:Dear Beneficiary,

This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such. I am Brian Walker, a personal attorney/sole executor to the late Engineer Robert here in after referred to as" my client" I represent the interest of my client killed with his immediate family in a fatal motor accident in East London on November 5, 2002. and I will like to negotiate the terms of investment of resources available to him.

My late client worked as consulting engineer & sub-controller with Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd here in the United Kingdom and had left behind a deposit of Six Million Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling only (6.8million Great British Pounds) GBP with a finance company. The funds originated from contract transactions he executed in his registered area of business. Just after his death, I was contacted by the finance house to provide his next of kin, reasons been that his deposit agreement contains a residuary clause giving his personal attorney express authority to nominate the beneficiary to his funds. Unknown to the bank, Robert had left no possible trace of any of his close relative with me, making all efforts in my part to locate his family relative to be unfruitful since his death. In addition, from Roberts own story, he was only adopted and his foster parents whom he lost in 1976, according to him had no possible trace of his relatives

The funds had remained unclaimed since his death, but I had made efforts 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. More so, I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank However, it will interest you to know that I discovered that some directors of this finance company are making plans already to have this fund to themselves only to use the excuse that since I am unable to find a next of kin to my late client then the funds should be confiscated, meanwhile their intentions is to have the funds retrieved for themselves.

I reasoned very professionally and resolved to use a legal means to retrieve the abandoned funds, and that is to present the next of kin of my deceased client to the bank. This is legally possible and would be done in accordance with the laws. 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" bank as my late client's surviving family member so 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 to be 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 lay claim to the funds, and it would back up your claim. I am willing to make these documents available to you so I do sincerely sympathize the death of my client.

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. As I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Please get in touch via my email. For more detail, calling me should not be any problem all you need to do is to dial your country code before dialling my number. If this proposal is acceptable by you and do not take undue advantage of the trust I bestowed on you.

For better confidentiality and if okay then you can send to me your Details to enable us proceed for the claim, Your details required as follows:


Once more, all this vital information will enable us proceed without any further doubt and do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you,

Kind Regards.

Head offshore Banking and Investment Dept
Hello Friend,

How are you? I Hope you are fine. Am Mr.Samad Yusuf Age 51 Am the regional manager here in Eastern (Sabah) Malaysia. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us. As the regional manager of the bank, it’s my duty to send financial reports to my head office in the capital city Kuala Lumpur On the course of the last year 2011 end of the of the year’s report,

I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made Six Million, Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars ($6.550.000.00) of which my head Office is not aware of and will never be aware of. I have since then PLACED this fund on a ESCROW CALL ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am compelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account.

I intend to part with 35% of this fund to you while 65% shall be for me and i will also like to invest in your country. I do need to assure you that there is practically no risk involved in this. It’s going to be a bank-to-bank transfer.

Part of the reason i contacted you is because i have a 9-year old daughter who has leukemia, a disease of the blood, and she needs a bone marrow transplant or she will die. I want this transplanting to be done in any good children’s hospital in your country if there is one.

All I need from you is to stand as the original owner of this fund.

If you think you can help me,I will appreciate your timely response.

With Regards,

Mr. Samad Yusuf.

Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unsolicited letter to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, but you will realize the need for my action.

Actually, I got your contact information through the public records while searching for a relative from the same country to my late client THOMAS, a business magnate in Europe, for Fifteen years, but unfortunately died along with his family during the Tsunami catastrophic, which occurred on Sunday, 26 December 2004.

Before his death; he deposited One Trunk Box/Diplomatic Personal Valuables, containing the sum of $10.8M (TEN MILLION AND EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS) with a security company in Europe, but he did not disclose the content of deposited diplomatic consignment to the security company, for security reasons. The security company have mandated me to present any family heir/inheritor for claims, before the consignment gets confiscated or reverts to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, as unclaimed diplomatic immunity. So I decided to search for any of my late client's relative to no avail, as he did not declare any other person, address, partner or relatives in the official paper works of his diplomatic consignment deposit, hence the need to contact you.

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you to stand as the next of kin to Thomas since you both are from the same country so that the diplomatic consignment will be released to you. With my position as his lawyer, I will now place your name as the next of kin to my late client. I will obtain relevant documents that will assist your claims, and facilitate the release of the consignment.

Be assured that this transaction is 100% risk free, as all modalities to actualize the operation effectively are in place and the consignment once released to you will be shared in two equal half (50/50) ($5.4 Million each)

Kindly indicate your response to this letter via the above stated email, for further clarifications. Also please be kind to get back to me, if you are not willing to work with me, so that I can further my search for another partner.

Kind Regards,
Since I started this thread I seem to be getting more of these emails, or maybe I'm just noticing them more.

The only money you will pay to the courier & Security Company to deliver your Fund ($1,500,000.00) direct to your postal Address in your country is ($115) only, being their Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.

Again, Do not be deceive by anybody to pay any other money except $115, I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage.You have to contact Skyline Delivering Company immediately for the delivery of your Inheritance Fund with this information bellow.
