Inheritance Letter Sample

Inheritance Letter Sample: How The Scam Works

How do the inheritance scams work? Very simple and effective for the scammers, like in the Marvin Roger Law scam. Let’s look at an inheritance letter sample and format.

You receive a message – usually by email – but sometimes via regular mail or social media as well – from somebody who claims to be the widow, the lawyer, or the children of somebody who recently passed away. The death’s reason could be any, from aviation accident to coronavirus spread.

It could even come from your pen pal, who has been building a friendship with you in the last few months, but now somebody in his/her family just died. Most often, these deaths have occurred in a plane crash. The story has a very moving scenario, which is the reason why the inheritance scams still work.

 

Watch How Inheritance Scams Work:

Watch the video below to see a new twist of the Inheritance Scams, exposed:

The person will tell you that they got an inheritance in a foreign bank and they need help getting the funds out. You’ll be asked for help and as a reward, you will get 20 or 30% of the total inheritance.

You will be provided with an attorney’s number or somebody who will apparently take care of the whole process in that foreign country (usually the Netherlands or England) and you are supposed to call him, to arrange the details.

To start the process, the lawyer will need a few fees, which victims usually pay knowing that they will get a good chunk of the inheritance later on. Of course, it never happens.




How To Avoid The Inheritance Scam:

Learn how an inheritance letter sample looks like. Never fall for a request for help in getting money out of a foreign country. The scammers know that a large proportion of the people they contract through e-mail or Facebook messages are not knowledgeable enough to recognize that this is just a scam.

  1. I received an email similar to this but a little different, the person emailed me saying they are dying and want someone to inherit around $ 3.7 million to give to charity and I would get a 30% sum for my help. they used similar words like “financial institution,” and urged confidentiality which I found very odd. Unfortunately I was naïve and eager to help others so I ended up responding, although I was smart enough to not give any personal information or pay any sum of money. Thank goodness I got suspicious and decided to look up the different types of scams as well as the persons name and information. I also emailed the bank they claimed the money was at, although I doubt I would get a legitimate answer 🙁 please beware, there are horrible people out there that would use something like charity and good intention to fulfill their greedy needs.

    I am Daniel Peter, an attorney-at-law and the adviser to the deceased Mr.John Herndon who died in a car crash along with his immediate family on the 08/01/2012. He left behind the total amount of 12.1Million Francs with a bank here in Switzerland to be bestowed on you since his extended family is unknown. Kindly send to me your telephone numbers for more prolific talks. Thanks

  4. Here is what i received:
    In 2007, one Mr. Rafi Taylor, whose surname is the same as yours and has your country in his file as his place of origin, made a fixed deposit for 36 months, valued at $27,400,000.00 with my bank. I was his account officer before I rose to the position of Managing Director. The maturity date for this deposit contract was 27th of September 2010. Sadly Mr. Rafi Taylor, among the death victims in the September 2009 earthquake in Indonesia that left over 1,200 people dead while he was there on a business trip. A view of the earthquake http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8284208.stm Since the last quarter of 2010 until today, the management of my bank has been finding means to reach him so as to ascertain if he will roll over the Deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn. When I discovered that this will happen, I have tried to think up a procedure to preserve this fund and use the proceeds for business. Some directors here have been trying to find out from me the information about this account and the owner, but I have kept it closed because, I know that if they become aware that Mr. Rafi Taylor, late, they will corner the funds for themselves. Therefore, am seeking your co-operation to present you as the one to benefit from his fund at his death since you have the same name, so that my bank headquarters will pay the funds to you. I have done enough inside bank arrangement and you only have to put in your details into the information network in the bank computers and reflect you as his next of kin. If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 50% of the funds while 50% shall be for me. Kindly forward your Email to me immediately through the email below”

Now I explain why I need your support, I have decided to make a citizen of the same country with my late client the Next of Kin.

    I hereby ask you if you will give me your consent to present you to the Spanish Bank as the next of kin to my deceased client.
    I would like to point out that you will receive 45% of the share of this money, 45% then I would be entitled to, 10% percent will be donated to charitable organizations.

    Lawyer: – David Gomez Gonzalez
    ________________________________________________________________________________________

    Dear

    Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. It may surprise you receiving my message, since there was no previous correspondence between us.

    My purpose of contacting you is for you to help secure the life insurance left behind by my late client, to avoid it being confiscated or declared unserviceable by the insurance management company where I am a managing director, where this fund which includes the life insurance valued US$11,500,000.00 was outstanding before his death.

    I got your contact information from the Commercial agency here in United Kingdom, and upon my verification about you, I found out that you have no criminal record whatsoever, which is the most reason I feel more comfortable to complete this transaction with you.

    This management has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin or the value will be declared unserviceable and the fund diverted to the firm treasury, so far, all my efforts to get a hold of someone related my client has proved abortive. Hence, I have contacted you. I am actually asking for your consent to present you to the insurance firm as the Next of Kin of my late client’s fund, since both of you are from the same country of origin, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.

    All the legal documentations to back up your claim as my client’s Next of Kin shall be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us to achieve this transaction. we shall share in the ratio of 50% for me, 50% for you as your benefit.

    This proposition is entirely risk free. I will use my position as the client’s insurance broker and the present managing director of the same insurance company to guarantee the success of this transaction. If you are interested, please contact me via the below information and upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand this transaction well.

    The intended transaction will be under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any infraction of the law.

    I have already forwarded an application to the insurance firm for release of the fund in your name and they required the following:

    Your full name
    Address
    Private Telephone number
    Fax number
    The above information is also needed to get approval documents to enable them to release the fund. Based on the homework that I have done; I know for certain that the application will be approved to the best of our interest.

    I am sure that the money will be released but I must be sure I will have Peace of Mind. Therefore, confidentiality and honesty are absolutely important.

    Please feel free to call me at any time. Thank you very much for your anticipated support, while I await your immediate response.

    Kindest Regards

    Dear Friend,

    A customer of ours who died (15) years ago in Tsunami tragedy in Indonesia leaving behind an estate/capital (US$20M) in a Bank here where I work,till date nobody has come forward or put application for the claim.During the Bank private search for the late gentle man relatives your name and email contact was among the findings that matches the same surname as the deceased who died intestate with no Will or next of kin.

I urge you to come forward since I can provide you with the details needed for you to claim the estate/capital so that I can be gratify by you ,in this way $12,000,000.00 for you and $8,000,000.00 for me. I will do all the crucial part in the Bank to have the claim released to you promptly.

  12. Virce Emmanuel Dayondon

    This is what I received also in my email and this man has sent it to many people in my country

    Greetings to you,

    I am pleased to present you with my proposal.

    Thank you for finding time to get back to me as I requested. My names is Mr.michael mandell Managing director Commerz Bank Mexico office and and this is my personal telephone number: +1619-268-3421, you are free to call me anytime and I will always answer once I am in a comfortable place to talk.

    I got your contact information from a professional directory of your Country during my visited to the Department of Foreign Affairs Manila (DFA) some days ago. I sent you the message through the mobile line i bought at Manila International Airport during my visit.

    This proposal I guarantee you will benefit both of us and also the less privilege people, the poor, street Children and orphans in Manila and other urban Provinces.

    I want to ask for your help in getting back the money left behind by a citizen of your country one late Ma. Jerome which i discovered during my auditing excise in our Mexico branch.

    Late Ma. Jerome lived and worked in Los Angeles, California, United States of America as a real estate business man and he deposited in our bank the sum of four million, one hundred and fifty thousand EURO (€4,150,000.00) as fixed deposit for a period of two years in 2005. This deposit has long matured and has gone dormant for over five (10) years and we have tried to reach him and could not.

    While i was in Manila few days ago in my effort to locate the family member, for the first time in my entire life i saw so many street Children and Hawkers, poor struggling people, orphans and homeless Children that need financial assistance, and i thought Since this money came from a Filipino Citizen It will be wise and justified to use this money to help the poor, the street Children and the orphans and to do Charity work in the Philippines so I want you to apply as the beneficiary of this Fund since Ma. Jerome was from your country according to the record.

    It does not matter whether you knew late Ma. Jerome or not, it does not matter if you have any kind of relationship with him or not, I will guide you all the way to make this claim.

    We are not hurting anyone by making this claim and it is not good enough to leave the money to eventually end up in the hands of few corrupt government officials while we have the opportunity to better the lives of poor people in the Philippines.

    We have to do this within shortest time possible because the money may be diverted to the Treasury Department’s account if not claimed now. If you are willing to do this with me, write back. I am waiting for your consent in order to move to the next step towards getting the money.

    Thank you.

    You’re sincerely,
    Mr.michael mandell
    Managing director
    Commerz Bank Mexico office

    & now still waiting for her stupid reply 😀

  16. Received a message from a certain Aberto Pedro (abertopedro1@gmail.com) who claims to be a regional branch manager at UBA. Told me that about 7,500.000 USD have been waiting for an heir for 11 years in which no entitled person showed up to claim the heritage of late Billy Laurence who died in a car crash at Accra/City of Ghana. Now he was trying to get the money off the country as he does not want Government to put hand on it. (As this was very tempting to me (who would refuse a serious offer to get a fortune?) I googled names and positions and legend and came across this site. So sad that it’s only an inheritance scam – but this information saved me from a lot of trouble… Thank you very much!

  17. I received the same msg.
    They are very creative. But dumb is he who thinks himself smarter than the others.
    I just asked to stop disturbing a video contact called by whatsapp. I want to see where it goes.

  18. I received a letter, poorly written that stated the late Robert Smith had died and left a bank deposit. Upon knowing this is a scam, I am waiting on the details of the letter. I did Google a Robert Smith who died in a car wreck in Cleveland, OH. This email was received from a John Morgan. If indeed he does say that Mr. Smith died in Cleveland, I know that he copied this directly out of the newspaper, probably the obituary. These scammers have to stop! I am playing the game for now, but I will wait before I report so that I have enough information to send to Federal commissions concerning these scammers. I act as if I was so excited, did not know how or where he died, and just really pushed the idea of wanting the information. I do not know the amount of the bank deposit, but I brushed that off and appeared more interested in the finding of my family member. What a shame that they use real people. What can be done, if anything, if they are overseas? It seems that the U.S. resident is just at a loss if they bite, but the real scammer is out of country and therefore receives no charges. Why send this to the Federal emails if it will never end the game of the scammer? He/She moves to the next individual.

  19. I think bank of england scam include attorney by woman’s father inheritance that woman live in TX and her lawyer in TX too but her name not list in TX include her lawyer and address not list in TX. I live in PA. Right now, Euro Credit website shut down a week later after I checked on online. what do you think I go to get lawyer myself?

  20. Received a letter from a person claiming to work for Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce as an account manager, searching for relatives a man who died in a car crash and who had a "dormant account" worth $9,536,000. the letter said that since the deceased was from my country and he shared my last name, it would be easy for me to become his official beneficiary and claim the funds "while I work from the inside with my partner here in the bank to make sure all needed information and evidence are provided to you to back up your claim." It gave two email addresses and a phone number.

  21. William Dickinson

    I’ve recently been contacted by someone in South Africa saying I’m the next of kin and them and family died in car crash. Need bank has sent me forms and say everything is in order but I need to send 6800$ us, for fees to complete transaction.

I have a client, who was deceased in November, 2013, 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$ 11.3 Million ( Say, Eleven Million, three 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.

    Regards,
    Barr. Malik Sarwar. M.ESQ,
    Senior Advocate/Solicitor.

    OOD NEWS, ABOUT YOUR OUTSTANDING FUND.

    I am Mrs Yvonne Brain, a US citizen, Am 43 years old. I am one of those people
    that took part in receiving Inheritance funds and Lottery funds from European
    banks even from many lottery organizers few years ago and they refused to pay
    me, I had paid different fees while in the United States trying to get my funds
    from those banks and lottery organizers but all to no avail. So I decided to
    travel to LONDON, UK with all my compensation documents, and I was directed by
    the IMF Director to contact the reconciliator Mr Daniel Albert who is also an
    attorney, A London citizen and a member of the UNITED NATIONS & IMF
    COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE currently working with IMF in the United Kingdom
    and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is
    contacting us through emails are fake. Mr Daniel Albert personally directed me
    on how to claim my Inheritance or Lottery payment.

    Right now I have received my compensation funds of $3,5 00,000.00 Moreover, Mr
    Daniel Albert, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive
    their Inheritance or Lottery payment and I saw your name as one of the
    beneficiaries, and your email address, that is why I decided to email you to
    stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only
    making money out of you.

    I will personally advise you to contact Mr Daniel Albert, he will assist you as
    he is a very religious man with the fear of God.

    was just $75 for the delivery and shipment charges, take note of that.

    NOTE: TELLING YOU TO PAY FOR ANY DELIVERY OR COURIER CHARGE IS ALL NOTHING

Unfortunately, my client died along with his nuclear family in France while on sabbatical in the summer of 2008, may their soul rest in peace. He died without leaving a Will. Several efforts were made to find his extended family through his embassy without success.

    I received a notice last week to provide the next of kin of my late client been his personal accountant or the account risk been transferred to the government (es-cheat) in 14 days time. I am contacting you to assist me in repatriating the funds left behind by my late client.

    This claim will be executed without breaching any United Kingdom laws and success is guaranteed if we co-operate on this. The bank will release the account to you because of my recommendation of you as the next of kin.

    Scanners these days can really take it very far…without limits And Btw I have asked her to come to Hong Kong and meet me in person let’s see what she will say

  31. lol, check this out:

    MY DEAR,
    i must thank you once again for your humble reply to my mail. I really appreciate it so much and i am very happy to read from you, well from your response i’m convinced that the future has a special place for us, if only we could trust each other and also be honest and faithful to each other as well.

    Like i told you earlier, i was looking forward to accomplish a particular mission, which my ”ex” husband was unlucky to achieve with me, I think with the little you have told me about you, it would be very wise to disclose this secret to you and also tell you my aim and plan. Because it would be of mutual benefit to us and maybe you could be the right person to utilize the opportunity with me, because i believe our knowing each other is the way God have destined it.

    Remember i told you i am an Auditor of my bank and also the Chief of the International Relation Foreign Remittance Unit. Prior to my position here at my bank, i have the opportunity to loot out some amount of money of a deceased customer, whose autopsy result showed that he died as a result of gun shorts by unknown gunmen. As i was her personal accountant officer, before he died and from the account opening records, he did not indicate anybody as his beneficiary next of kin. Since 2008 to date, nobody has come forward as his beneficiary next of kin to administer the fund. The amount in question is the total sum of $:14.500,000. (Fourteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand USD).

    I can provide all the required legal papers from the British Court to present you as the legal beneficiary to these funds if you would accept to partner with me in this deal.
    A lot of abandoned money lay around in this bank as a result of abandoned bank accounts, stock holdings, unclaimed life insurance pay-outs and forgotten pension benefits.
    I will definitely give you comprehensive details on how we would achieve this legally, without going against the laws of the country.
    Once you reply to me indicating your interest to work with me. I have worked with the bank for several years and have taken time to study the British inheritance claims procedures. I would appreciate it if you would treat this issue with every bit of confidentiality and maturity, putting my integrity foremost, because i wouldn’t need any mistakes or regrets. I assure you that you will never regret it if you would take the bold step to partner with me in this deal. It would be wise if
    we make every effort not to loose this golden opportunity. This happens in every bank around the world, even in your own country, but people outside the banking industry do not know this.

    The fund will be shared at the ratio of 58% for me, 40% for you and 2% will be set aside to cover any expenses and tax in your bank, We will use the fund there in your country to build companies and for investment which both of us would manage, Please this is an honest request for you and i.
    I only plead for you to make this transaction a top secret because we do not have to trust anybody unless you and i alone.

    Please treat this business proposal with utmost confidentiality and send me the following Information(s) for further application for this transfer if you are interested.

    1. Full Name,
    2. Address
    2. Identification copy
    3.Nationality

    Thanks and best regards
    Yours Faithful Marylin

    I am at the moment,writing a claiming email to a bank with the details provided. Let me know the best way to capture the one requesting just in case its a scam.

  33. Here is the last idiot, "Edward Rees":

    54 Doughty Street
    London, WC1N 2LS
    DX: 223 Chancery Lane.
    Tel: +44-745-127-2291
    Fax: 44-87-1247-2209

    Attn: Sir / Madam,

    I am the personal attorney to Robert Fitzpatrick, an American who was a consultant with Shell UK LTD here in London, who shall be referred to as my client. Unfortunately my client lost his life on Boeing Egypt Air Flight 990, which crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on October 31st, 1999 and left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents related to the deposit still with me.

    All efforts by me to trace his Next of Kin proved abortive because he did not make any will prior to his death. Since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of my late clients extended relatives and this has proved unsuccessful. After my several unsuccessful attempts to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.

    I am contacting you to assist in claiming the money left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unclaimed by the security company where this huge deposit was deposited. Particularly, the finance company where the deceased had the said fund valued at USD 11 Million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin.

    Consequent upon this, my idea is that we can have a deal/agreement and I am going to do this legally with your name as the bona fide beneficiary of the amount in question as I have all legal document to back our claim, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at $11 Million US dollars can be paid to your account abroad, note that 40% of this money will be for you, in respect to the provision of a foreign account and 50% for me, 10% will be used for the reimbursement of any expenditure we may incur in the cause of the transaction.

    I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, all I need from you is your utmost collaboration and sincerity for us to thrive in this deal.

    Get back to me via this email address edwardree.barr@gmail.com if you are ready to assist me.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Edward Rees (Esq).

    solicit your confidentiality on it. I assure you that I am contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit

    to us. I am Paul Deed a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/executor to a deceased client of my chambers who shares

    same surname with you, who was an independent oil magnate in my country, but died in an auto crash with his family on the

    19th of August 2008 in East London.

    My late client, a former Production Engineer with Premier Oil Plc., here in the United Kingdom had Left behind a deposit of

    Eight Million Two Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling only (£8.2M) with a bank. After the death of my client, the

    Bank 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 the 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 Bank about my fruitless effort in locating my late client close relative or his next of kin.

    The Board of directors of the Bank 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 Bank had planned to

    invoke the abandoned property Act of the Bank 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, have you present yourself

    to the "Trustee" as my late client’s 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 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 on you the

    legal right to make this claim and would make them available to you so that the proceeds from this bank account valued at

    £8.2 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 on 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 7 years now

    I seek your consent to have you present yourself 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 late client, but after a little check

    my instinct told me to contact you. Can I trust you on this? I shall assemble all the necessary documents that will be used to

    back up your claim.

    I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the 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 and if this proposal is acceptable to you, send your telephone and

    fax numbers to me to enable us discuss further on this transaction and do not take undue advantage of the trust I have

    bestowed in you. Thanks for your understanding.

    Regards Paul

  37. I just got one today:
    Firstly, I would like to express my appreciation to your response and will like to introduce myself. I am Rachel Wulff, Head of Service Ownership Banking Royal Bank of Scotland.

    I would respectfully request that you keep the content of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come across as a result of this mail.

    I contacted you privately this weekend and no one is informed of this communication. I will give you the entire story behind the Business here. I do hope you find it interesting enough in accepting this proposal.

    Sometime in 2010, a certain Engineer/contractor Late made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, currently valued at GBP4,843,000.00(Four Million Eight Hundred and Forty Three Thousand Great British Pounds Sterling) in my bank. Upon maturity a routine notifications were sent to his forwarding address but we got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, Royal Dutch plc that the deceased depositor had died alongside his longtime companion in an Auto crash. If you are familiar with private banking practice those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In the deceased bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, accounts are rarely held under a name, depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous.

    In this case the deceased Client, He died intestate. In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away my bank conducted a search in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the funds. This has for the past years been unfruitful. This sum has since been sitting in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one has been able to come forward for it. According to the Laws of my environment (United Kingdom), at the expiration of a given period if the said fund is not claimed the money will revert to the ownership of the United Kingdom government.

    The banking world is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. In this case, I alone have the deposit details as I was the account officer to the deceased as at the time the account Fixed deposit was made my bank will release the deposit to no one unless evidence of relationship with the deceased is presented. The bank’s management has no single idea of the history of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to the party that comes forward. This is the situation. My bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track this man’s family.

    Consequently, what I propose is that I will like you to stand in as the next of kin to the depositor as you both have same last name so that the fruits of this old man’s labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. Acting in this capacity really is simple as I will explain in detail to you when I get your response. Being aware of this request I am making, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. You may not know this but people like me who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones’ way once in a lifetime.

    The reward for this project makes it a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting the public.

    My position guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you find yourself able to work with me, I urge you to indicate to that effect

    Awaiting your urgent reply

    Regards,

    Mrs. Rachel Wulff

  41. I received a message from a man named Biggs Holtzman on LinkedIn asking me to email his personal email directly to get info on a lucrative business deal. Beware of this scammer – here is his email:

I respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and also respect the integrity of the information which is the reason I requested for your private email.

My bank has waited for an application of his Next Of Kin or Relative for the release of the sum but this has been unfruitful till date. According to the Laws of my environment at the expiration of a certain period of time which is around the corner the money will be confiscated by the Bank on the basis of no one applying for it. The world of banking is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversees certain portfolios.

Acting in this capacity is really simple as I will guide you through. Being aware of this request I am making I ask that if you find no interest in this project.

I have evaluated the risks and the only risk i have here is your refusal to work with me and further alerting the public. My position here guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you find yourself able to work with me. Once again be rest assured that this transaction will be profitable to both of us.

  43. ENCLOSED IS THE COMPREHENSIVE DETAILS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDINGS.

    Hello my Dear Matt Mckechnie ,

    My dear, I know a letter of this magnitude will make anyone worried, but believe me sincerely, contacting you on this issue wasn’t by mistake, this is real and never a child’s play. I understand your been shocked about my message however be rest assured that my intentions of been in contact with you is not to lie or joke with your person instead my intentions is for us working as a team here in handling this said fund been released to your person as the new beneficiary.

    Firstly, I am assuring you that this transaction is 100% legal and risk free both now and after the claim. I am here as the personal lawyer of the deceased to ensure that we have a successfully claim. Remember that I am part of the proceed and for your information ,I have every documentations and information relating to this deposit as entrusted on me by my late client before his death as his personal Attorney on financial matters and that is why I will stake all within my powers to ensure that we have a hitch free transaction. so my dear do not be afraid about this relationship.

    In a nut shell I will like to briefly summarize what I was saying in my first proposal to you; My deceased Client, (Engr.Dazniev Mckechnie ) He was a big customer of UNION TOGOLAISE DE BANQUE . He operated a coded account which he deposited the total sum of US$11.5 Million and died on a Car Accident. He was a Civil Engineer and Contractor who had handled so many projects here in West Africa. He had a Wife and a Son of course all of them were on the same Vehicle as they were going on vacation. He has a registered company here in Lome-Togo but folded up after his demise.

    My Dear Friend , You actually may or may not be closely related to my Late Client, but Specifically, I got your information during my search for a trust worthy partner who can work with me in receiving the said fund as his next of kin.. I want you to stand as the next of kin to my late client before the Bank so that this fund shall be released and transferred to you .

    Over the years now I have been searching for his close relative and have made contacts to his embassy but my attempts proved futile.

    The law of inheritance in my country does not make provision for estate management/agreement rather the right is given to the approved heir/beneficiary. And this is why I contacted you to stand as the next of kin to my deceased client so that you will be approved the heir/beneficiary in accordance with the law. Bear in mind that you are going to go through normal and legal inheritance claim procedure so that the claim will be fully legalized and/or notarized.

I will provide all the necessary legally procured documents to back up any claim we make regarding this process, and will just require your understanding and cooperation as well as maintaining a very high sense of confidentiality until we confirm our fund transfer into your nominated Bank account to enable us achieve success within a legitimate arrangement, eliminating any liability resulting from any breach of the prevalent laws.

All legal documents to back up your claim as my late client’s next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through.

    What I have mentioned to you sounds like crazy funds, but believe me is not! it is within my hands. It is real and not fraud, it is 100% legal, and the funds have history and will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter confidential.I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail;(azmibin.bakri77@gmail.com) as soon as possible to indicate your interest.

  45. I have been in contact with a lady perporting to be on her death bead from breast cancer. Sshe has a legcy she wants to leave to me to do ‘Gods work’.
    I have been asked to contact a bank (which I have checked on the internet and there does seem to be such a bank)
    I have now been instructed to send 220.00USD to a certain person out in the BENIN REPUBLIC to pay a courier to bring me paperwork to be signed which will confirm me as her next of kin and then apparently they will transfer by a Bank Draft her said legacy. there seems some urgency as if the legacy not claimed it will be claimed by the treasury.

  46. With due respect this is a personal message for you,I need some directives from you to invest some capital in your country.

    And see how we can partnership into the business. Just reply me to explain better.

    My Dear, I am most happy for your reply. I really don’t know how to
    explain myself here because in this kind of business discussion, we
    suppose to meet face to face to talk about it, but due to some family
    matters i can not be able to afford the cost now to travel with my
    children, that is why i seek your contact to have some private
    discussions with you through mails and probably phone calls.
    I am a widow with four children, my husband died last 2 years during
    the country political crises. We are from the Central African
    Republic, but due to the problem in the country, and the death of my
    late husband, i left the country with my children to Burkina Faso,
    where i am communicating to you now. I don’t know how you see my
    contact to you. And you know a lot of things now happen with the
    internet, people sending all kind of lies messages claiming other
    people names.
    Dear friend, it took me time to consider to contact you through email,
    and i pray for God directions. Let me now explain to you the reason
    why i contact you. First’ I have concluded arrangement to come down
    there with my children and settle there, so that my children can have
    a good education and good future. Secondly’ i don’t want to come there
    and start looking for work, my late husband plan for the children
    future ahead, He have this account at the Maybank in ,Malaysia, with a
    total of $4.2million. I don’t have any business idea as you ask, and
    no experience, i have been a civil worker all my life. This is why i
    need your assistance to invest the capital into good business that
    will bring good profit. And i am ready to partnership with you into
    any business you suggest i put the capital.
    Finally’ as the capital is in Malaysia, the bank gave me options to
    move the fund after i have identify with my son to the bank as the
    next beneficiary to the fund. They have approve to move the fund to my
    destination in whole, as i am not the original bearer of the deposit
    account, but i requested they transfer part of the fund to me here, to
    be able to buy air tickets and secure other traveling papers for my
    children, but they refuse my request, saying before they can transfer
    the fund bit by bit, i must have an account with my names in their
    bank, and that will require me coming down to Malaysia.
    As i can not travel there now, i choose the easier option, that is to
    move the fund to my destination. And since we are almost ready to come

  47. Dear Friend,

    I appreciate you for writing back. Do not be bothered as to why you have been contacted your for this and its genuineness, as it has been authenticated from a pure motive. Your email was sourced from a web journal and the good-willed message was sent to you. Permit me to introduce myself again; I am Liliane Bettencourt, daughter of late Louise Madeleine Berthe. French Citizen, 91 years old, and worth $30.5 Billion Dollars.

    The intention of this email is to be of immense blessing to people.With my age, I cannot continue to amass wealth without giving out. I might not have the liberty of time due to my ailment (Dementia),therefore, I am doing this now.I have handed all my wealth to my only daughter, but there is part of it which nobody is aware of.. I have been putting it away for this purpose since a long time now. I would be happy to cede it out to you.I would have done this myself but for health reasons and if I do it through my daughter, I am very certain she will not help anyone with it. She took me to court the last time I gave out money out of generosity. It is my hope that you are able to receive this money and if you can, also help others from it too as you wish. I am giving it basically to you though.

    0.1% of my worth I have been amassing in capital projects for a long time now and it has amount to $30,500,000.00. I am trying to cede this in money, portion by portion through a bank to as many as can benefit from it because I do not really have much to do with it. As I send this message to you, I also sent to others too. I sent to churches,Orphanages, and individuals, 10% each to all whom I have contact with.
    Now, all this being said, if you know you are ready to receive the funds $3,500,000.00 (Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars). Kindly confirm your application by completing the following data and introduce yourself in details, Full name.., Address.., Age.., Occupation., Telephone number….., thereafter i will write to you in my next email on what to do to receive your portion of money from the bank. This is my personal wealth and does not need many formal procedures, some beneficiaries have received theirs.. My only terms is that you be good with it and be good to others too, that’s all. Please make it fast because I have only a few days to use a computer since the doctors have given instructions to stop me from the use of electronics.

    As I await your response, I wish you a wonderful day.

    Faithfully,
    Mrs. Liliane Bettencourt

  48. My brother was scammed by men in the Philippines and Ghana. He has been involved in sending money to many men, who talk to him and professed love or called him daddy. NikkHe recently died and after 40+ years as his beneficiary, sister (next of kin) shortly before his death he changes beneficiary to one of these men.I am appealing, do I have a chance.

    hospital where we were admitted he told me the sum of $6,000,000
    Million Dollars he deposited in the bank he gave me your email address
    and instruct me that if it happened that he did not survive that I
    should contact you with this email and help you for the money to be
    transferred to your account and he told me that you are his relative.
    He gave me the deposit certificate he used in depositing the money in
    the bank he instructed that after the transfer of the money to your
    account you should give $1,000.000 to the motherless home in your
    country and $200.000 to me for my compensation, it is unfortunate that
    Mr. Pavel Steven did not survive. I have been in hospital for the past

  54. i was also scam he is using the name of jeff sikora… this sept.2 2015.Greetings to you,

    Thank you for finding time to get back to me as I requested. My name is Mr. Jeff Sikora and this is my telephone number:+1-785-655-6309. You are free to call me anytime and I will always answer once I am in a comfortable place to talk. I want to ask for your help in getting back the money left behind by a citizen of your country Mr. Gabriel Rodrigo. If this will endanger your position and reputation, I would not have contacted you. This is safe and beneficial. I am presently the President/CEO of my bank here in United States of America and please do not expose this transaction for any reason, I will give you more information of myself, our bank and the transaction itself once you accept to do this with me.

    Late Mr. Gabriel Rodrigo lived and worked in Los Angeles, California, United States of America as a real estate business man and he deposited in our bank the sum of four million, six hundred thousand US Dollars (US$4,600,000.00) as fixed deposit for a period of two years in 2008. This deposit has long matured and has gone dormant for over seven (7) years. We have tried to reach him and could not. His telephone number cannot be reached, emails sent to him kept bouncing back as undelivered and we never got any response from the letters posted to his residential address. This issue prompted me to carry out an independent investigation about his whereabouts since he did not provide a next of kin or beneficiary at the time he made the deposit with us. I later realized with shock that he was shot dead sometime in March 2010 by criminals who robbed them while on vacation in Mexico. In order to verify the truth of the matter, I went to Mexico and confirmed he was dead, it is a sad story for a kindhearted and generous person like him. This matter was not reported to our bank and nobody in our bank is aware of this except me.

    I have on my own made inquiries at your embassy here in the United States and also visited Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Manila, Philippines, no information of him was found. I have checked our records, there is no information of him relating to his address in his country and he did not put nominee at the time he made the deposit. All these made it impossible for me to locate any of his relatives. Since this is the issue, I want you to apply as the beneficiary of the deceased to claim the deposit from our bank since it is believed he was from your country according to his name. I know there are a lot of Philippines here in the United States, but it is only someone from outside United States of America can successfully make this claim because of the way our bank works. It does not matter whether you knew him or not, it does not matter if you have any kind of relationship with him or not, I will guide you all the way to make this claim. It is not a matter of being greedy or having bad morals, we are not hurting anyone by making this claim and it is not the best to leave the money to eventually end up in the hands of few corrupt government officials while we have the opportunity to live better with it. This transaction is a risk free transaction and as the President/CEO of my bank, the final approval of your application will be done by me. Once I approve it, you will have the right to claim the money.

    We will share the money into two equal parts (50:50) for each of us when the claim is made. Everything will be done successfully and legally, have no fear about this. Right now, I have all the copies of documents relating to the deposit he made that you will file to back up this claim. All I require is your sincerity and honest cooperation to enable us make this claim successfully and we have to do this within shortest time possible because the money will be reverted to the Treasury Department’s account if not claimed now. If you are willing to do this with me, write back and I shall inform you on what next to do to make sure you receive the money. I am waiting for your consent in order to move to the next step towards getting the money. Thank you.

    Your sincerely,
    Mr. Jeff Sikora.

  55. Compliment of the seaon,I am Mr. Richard Milan,i am a lawyer from Republic of Ghana Accra,and i am contacting you because of your last name that i came accross here on skype.

    I have a client name Andrew Vyas who made a fixed deposit with a bank,BARCLAYS BANK GHANA. and it was the sum of USD$10,000,000.00 (Ten million US Dollars) Deposited in the Barclays Bank here in Ghana in 2007 and the due date for claims was 2010,unfortunately my client he was among the dead victim in the indonessia earthquake that occured some years ago and he did not mention his next of kin to me before his death.

    The bank is yet to know that he is dead,if they know he is dead and has no next of kin ,they will give his funds to the government and i dont want that to happen.

    I am seeking your co-operation to present you to the bank head office as his next of kin to my late cleint ,so that they can approve the funds to you and we can both share it.This deal its 100% risk free because as it stands now,the bank are relying on me to present his next of kin simply because i am his lawyer.

    If you are intrested,email me at: ( richard_millan@aol.fr ) or you can reach me at my private line for more details +233-543-423-980

  57. Beware of Herbert Moos from VTB Bank.

    He sends u a message saying one of your family members have passed away and that you are the only one closest to kin and they send the death certificate and u have to pay to activate their account. He said his son was ill and his bank was closing down and needed some money, so we had to send him 1500 to activate the account s UK nce the amount we were getting was so high. We didn’t have that much money and we told him we couldn’t get it so he said he pawned some very valuable items from his home and paid half of it and so we paid the other 750 plus an extra 56 since it was going to an out of state address.. When he got the money he said the activation fee went up and the lawyer said it would cost even because of the amount we were recieving so we told him we didn’t have the money and he said it would take him a couple of months to come up with the money and he would get back to us whenever he had it he also had us send him a picture of the receipt and we did and we didn’t hear from him after that.

He was a formal Sub-Comptroller working with Chevron Texaco Oil here in the United Kingdom He was an oil merchant and he had oil dealings around Europe and Africa, (he was 60 years at the time of his death), He was transferred from Belgium in the year 1988, and He have lived most of his years here in London, but travelled often. Craig was never married and had no kids. He migrated into The UK a long time ago as an orphan. I have served as his private attorney for the last eleven years preceding his death. I was recently contacted by the Bank as his attorney to provide his Next of kin who should inherit his fortune; this according to them is their policy in sure circumstances. I have written several letters to the embassy with the intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his deposited funds and his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail.

  63. Greetings once again,

    I have to first thank you for your quick reply. This is a serious transaction and should be taken as such at all times, I am certain that in less than 14 banking days the money will be in your account. You will only have to follow my directives to avoid mistakes in the process of making the claim. The most important elements in this claim are: trust, confidentiality, sincerity and cooperation. None of these important elements should lack in both of us throughout the process of the claim in order to be successful, it is very, very important.The truth about the whole issue is that our bank will turn this deposit to the treasury department’s account if this claim is not made before the end of the month of August 2015 and it is important we are quick in applying for the claim. As I previously assured you, you stand no risk of any kind in this as I am here to influence things in our favor and I am 100% sure that we will be successful, your application will be expressly processed and approved since it is on my table that this will come. It does not matter if you have any relationship with late Mr. Gabriel Rodrigo or not, you do not have to worry for any reason.

    To tell you a little of myself, I was born on the 29th day of August, 1969. I am originally from Indiana, United States of America and I have lived in Muncie, Indianapolis for years with my wife and two daughters. I love my family very well and would not want to disappoint them for any reason. If I am not sure of what I am doing, I cannot be doing this. Take this transaction very serious and be careful to avoid mistakes. Any email you receive from our bank should first be forwarded to me so I can read it and advise you on it before you give a reply to it. If the need be, I may even write the email which you shall give back to our bank and then send it to you so you can send it from your own email address. If however you are called, always tell them to send you email by claiming you do not understand their spoken English well. This is basically to avoid been asked questions you cannot give the rights answers and thereby jeopardize our chances of getting the money. Even if they tell you to come in person to our bank, tell them you cannot come in person because of your busy schedule. These important roles are what you are to play, once you do them, be assured that we will receive the money and the interest on it as well. The interest is on simple interest rate of 4% per annum. The amount we are going to get is four million, seven hundred and eighty four thousand US Dollars (US$4,784,000.00) and this will go along way to help our finances. Please do give me your details below to enable me draft an application letter of claim which you will send to my bank through email for further process:

    Full Names:
    Residential/Official Address:
    Occupation:
    Marital Status:
    Gender:
    Age:

    The next thing I will do is to draft an application letter of claim which you will have to send to our bank through email. The application letter of claim will come with two attached documents: the certificate of deposit and the last letter our bank sent to late Mr. Gabriel Rodrigo. I got the two documents from his file with us. Please, do not make the mistake of forwarding the application letter of claim and the documents with my name or email address on it, take note of this. Do let me know once you send it, please. I’m sure that once I make the necessary endorsement in regard of your application and also approve it, the money will be paid into any bank account you may provide regardless of where the account is and I will join you for my own share. If there is anything you do not understand or wish to ask, you are to write and ask so I can have the issue cleared.

    I have attached a scanned copy of my passport and official ID for you to know me better.

    Thank you once again for your willingness to do this with me.

    Yours sincerely,
    Mr. Jeff Sikora.

    I am Barrister ZULMI BIN SABRI, a legal practitioner with ZUL JAAFAR IBRAHIM & CO Perlis Malaysia. I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition.
    I have a client, who died as a result of heart-related condition on the 20th November, 2010. His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the Air Flight Crash.

    I contacted you to assist in getting the funds left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this deposit valued at 10.5 million United States Dollars. The bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated.

    My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my late client, since both of you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you thereafter we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage of 60% to me and 40% to your kind self. All legal documents to back up your claim as my late client’s next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through.

    This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinary confidential, whatever is your decision, while I await your prompt response. I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail;( zulmibinsabri65@gmail.com ) as soon as possible to indicate your interest.

  74. Here is one scam email I got today, not just in English but in Spanish as well, from a "Hermana Ruth hanson":

    Donation of Mrs. Ruth Hamson
    Bishop [38 rue des martyrs cocody
    Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

    Dearest one in Christ,

    I am from Kuwait. I am married to Mr. Richead Hamson, who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in 2004. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

    Before his death, both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my husband was alive he deposited the sum of ($ 2.5 million) in the bank here in Abidjan suspense account.

    Currently, the fund is still in the bank. Recently, my doctor told me that I have serious sickness which is cancer problem. What disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Knowing my condition I decided to donate this fund to church or those who utilize this money the way I would recommend here. I want a church that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, to promote the word of God and the effort that the house of God is maintained.

    The Bible is for us to understand that blessed is the hand that gives. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I do not want my husband’s efforts to be used by unbelievers. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. That’s why I’m taking this decision. I’m not afraid of death, so I know where I’m going. I know that I’m going to be in the bosom of man. Exodus 14 vs 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I hold my peace.

    I do not need a telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always and I do not want them to know about this development. In God all things are possible. As soon as I get an answer I will give you contact of the bank here in Abidjan. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy Christian. Whoever wants to serve the lord must serve him in spirit and in truth. Always praying for their whole lives.

    Reply me for more information’s, in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or person for the same purpose. Let me assure you that they will act accordingly as specified. Hope to get an answer.

  75. Here is my scammer’s email, sent to ‘Undisclosed Recipients’

    "My Names are Mrs. Grace Saludareis, I am the Administrative manager at a vault financial & security Institution here in Barcelona.

    I am contacting you based on a financial opportunity I discovered here in my Bank. It’s about an abandoned sum of $31. 7m Us Dollars (Thirty One million, Seven Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) in our save deposit vault, that belongs to one of our foreign customers, a citizen of your country that share the same surname with you, who died along with his entire family on the 11th march 2006 in a ghastly car accident in Porto Portugal.

    The banking policy can only allow the release of such funds to a benefactor through an application as next of kin to the deceased.

    After his death, the bank has been expecting a possible beneficiary, but no luck, this institution has exploited all its ethical possibilities in other to contact his possible relatives or inheritors, but to no success since nobody has come over for the claim of the funds for the past 10 years.

    I have made my own research with the help of a private investigator, it is my knowledge that this man has been living in Barcelona for the past 22 years and has never returned back home. I also learnt that his wife and 13 year old daughter died along with him during the car accident. I am 100% sure that no one is aware of the existence of these funds.

    However, because of the international financial crises, a lot of reform has been made within the Spanish financial system, this includes the new law on succession of claims which indicates a duration in which such inheritance could be tolerated.

    The Bank of Spain has mandated our institution to release the funds to the inheritor. Failure to respond to this ultimatum would legally allow the Bank of Spain to confiscate the funds as unclaimed funds (Which of course would go straight to the Government’s pocket). It is therefore upon this entire discovery that I have decided to contact you.

    I want you to know that I am a senior member of this office. As an insider, I am equipped with all classified secret information regarding the release of these funds. I would dedicate to make sure that I feed you with all possible documentation and information required for the approval and release of these funds.

    Upon your acceptance to cooperate, I agree that 45% of this money will be for you, 55% for me. Please note that I have ONLY discussed this issue with my husband.

    For time difference and confidential reasons, I strongly advice that you should get back to me via my private email address at (gracesaludareis@yahoo.com) with your contact details immediately you acknowledge the receipt of this mail, so that I would be able to inform you on how this could be concluded.

    In conclusion, it’s my concern to demand your ultimate honesty, co-operation and confidentiality to enable us conclude this transaction.

    I fully assured you that this process would be executed under a legitimate arrangement that would legally protect you from any breach of law.

    Please kindly Reply to (gracesaludareis@yahoo.com)

    Regards,
    Mrs.G S"

    Here is what I got. Watch out for this scammer!

    BECKWORTH CHAMBERS UK
    68 Doughty Street, London, WC1N 2LS UK

    Dear Friend.

    I am Barrister Harry Beckford, a Legal practitioner here in London and I wish to solicit your assistance in a deal that involves reasonable amount of money. This deal by virtue of its nature must be utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know that transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that this will be done under a legitimate arrangement that will protect both of us from any breach of the law.

    Like I stated above, I am a Legal practitioner here in London and I came to know you in my private search for a reliable and reputable Business Person/individual that can handle this confidential deal with me, which requires maximum confidence and trust from both sides.

    MY PROPOSITION;

    I had a wealthy client named Satoshi Nagata who was one of the richest men in Japan but did most of his businesses in Germany and middle east . He was into several businesses before his untimely death in an air mishap in March 2015. This website will give you comprehensive picture of what I am talking about:

    [fake website]

    My client who died along with his wife deposited the Sum of $41.7 Million (Forty One million, Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) with a bank here in the UK.During the bank audit exercise, the bank discovered my late client’s deposit as an unclaimed credit balance, hence issued me a notice to provide any relatives of my client otherwise they will have the account closed and the fund confiscated. I have made several inquiries to his high commission to locate my client’s extended relatives, but all my efforts proved abortive, I then decided to trace his relatives or family member over the internet, and hence I found you as my instinct convinced me that you will be a trustworthy and honest business partner and I decided to contact you to assist me with the legal transfer of my late client’s deposit before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Financial institution where the fund is lodged.

    I now seek your permission to present you as my deceased client relative and have you stand as the Next of Kin to my deceased client so that the funds of $41.7 Million (Forty One million, Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) can be released and paid into your account as the beneficiary and next of kin.

    I will provide all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up your claim. Please get in touch with me immediately if you are interested to assist me and send to me your contact address, and direct telephone number, then I will commence work in your name. Be informed that this transaction is risk free otherwise my chambers will not contact you because it is against our ethics. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavor by furnishing me with the followings;

    1. YOUR FULL NAME
    2) YOUR CONTACT ADDRESS
    3) DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBERS AND FAX NUMBERS
    4) AGE
    5) OCCUPATION
    6) MARITAL STATUS
    7) SEX

    These requirements will enable us file letters of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favor. Call me as soon as you receive this message for further clarification.

    Looking forward to your prompt response.Private e-mail to reply all your infos to : fiveyrsjh@ukr.net

  77. Hello Friend

    I am Mr Paul Tan Wong a staff of Lloyds TSB Group Plc. here in Singapore attached in Private Banking Services, I contacted you as regards to a business proposal that will be of an immense benefit to both of us and the less privileged ones.

    All confirmable documents to back up the claims will be made available to you prior to your acceptance and as soon as I receive your return mail Via my email address, I will let you know what is required of you.

    You do not know my Client Late Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi in person do you? I was his companion for years he did business with my bank here in Hong Kong, He has various accounts used to launder billions of dollars all over the world as he is a very influential man, No one is getting in trouble and if you do not want to be part of this you are free to pull out now but i assure you this opportunity is worth taking.

    What I wish to relate to you might be a smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something; it is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios; you should have begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose. There is USD$85 Million (Eighty Five Million united states dollars) deposited, I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as my finance firm is concerned, the transaction with our deceased customer concluded when I sent the funds to the firm in Malaysia, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just customer services and due process. The finance firm has no single idea of what’s the history or nature of the deposit, they are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes forward, and this is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track the family of the deceased; they have investigated for months and have found no family but however the investigation has officially come to an end.

    My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position whereby an instruction is given to the finance firm to officially release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation/associate, and all etiquette shall be done in accordance with the rule of law, I certainly can guarantee you that. By the common law, the power of bequeathing is coeval with the first rudiments of the law, and this power has been extended to all a man’s Personal and Real estate (Personality & Realty). There is no ruling which prevents an inheritance from being so exhausted by legacies as to render it unworthy of the heir’s acceptance; basically all persons of sound mind are competent to bequeath and devise real and personal estate, excepting infants, with all this I would say we have the clear advantage to carry out a smooth and perfect operation whereby the paper work shall be coordinated in such a way that your status as a sole beneficiary is confirmed. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half and no more; that is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you; afterwards we share the proceeds 50/50.

    You may not know this but people like me who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector, I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones’ way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by and I hope you understand, because for once I found myself in total control and face to face with my destiny. These chances won’t pass me by, I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me please let me know, and hence move on with my life, but do not destroy me; I am a family Man and this is an occasion to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking, I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank; I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune will bless you and plant you into the center of relevance in my life, let’s share the blessing.

    Please, again, note I am a family Man; I am happily married with kids, I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences might be, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold, this is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients; do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord I shall have the pleasure of meeting you, after this task has been completed plan a meeting.

    In a nut shell without playing around with words, What i want from you is that i present you as the Next of Kin and sole beneficiary to the $85 Million at the finance house where the funds are presently deposited.

    I await your response.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Mr Paul Tan Wong

    REYFIELDS INVESTIGATIONS

    My name is Michael Reyfields; I work with the Reyfields Investigations, a Consulting Firm in London, UK. We are conducting a standard process investigation involving a client who shares the same name with you and also the circumstances surrounding investments made by this client at HSBC Bank.
    The HSBC Private Banking client died intestate and nominated no next of kin to inherit the title over the investments made with HSBC Bank. The essence of this communication with you is to request that you provide us information on three issues:

    1-Are you aware of any relative/relation having the same surname, whose last known contact address was Madrid, Spain?
    2-Are you aware of any investment of considerable value made by such a person at the HSBC Bank?
    3-Can you establish beyond reasonable doubt your eligibility to assume status of next of kin to the deceased?

    It is pertinent that you inform us ASAP whether or not you are familiar with this personality that we may put an end to this communication with you and our inquiries surrounding this personality.

    You must appreciate that we are constrained from providing you with more detailed information at this point. PLEASE RESPOND BACK TO MY PRIVATE AND DIRECT EMAIL ADDRESS; mr63782@yahoo.com

    Malaysia.

    My name is Mr Malik Sarwar, a legal practitioner in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition. I have a client, who was deceased in November, 2009, 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$ 11.3 Million ( Say, Eleven Million, three 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.

  89. I received the same letter from a Jonathon Little ESQ. Here is it in it’s entirety.

    GILESGATE HOUSE,COUNTY DURHAM DH1 1JA, UNITED KINGDOM

    BUSINESS PROPOSAL

    This business proposal is confidential 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 Jonathon Little, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to a client of mine, who died along with his family in a plane crash on the 5th of August 2005.

    My late client a formal Sub-Comptroller working with Chevron Texaco Oil here in the United

    Kingdom and had Left behind a deposit of Sixteen Million British Pounds Sterling only

    (£16,000,000.00) 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’s close relative or his next of kin.

    The board of directors of the finance company now adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money or forfeit the money as an abandoned fund. The company had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me but after an investigation in the finance company, I found out that some members of the company wants to divert this fund into their private accounts for their own selfish interest and only want, to use the excuse that since I am not able to look for someone to make the claim, the money should be made unserviceable and that means submitting the fund to the federal government of this country and some to the company management which is not their main intentions.

    By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate family, I am very much aware of my client’s financial standing. I do sincerely sympathize the death of my client, but had thought it unprofitable for his funds to be submitted to the federal government of this country and the finance company where it is lodged. I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client which is legally possible and would be done in accordance with the laws of the land.

  90. Has any got an e-mail about MICHEAL JERRY being in a hospital bed and how he has to trust a total stranger because his family would spend the 2,000,000 for their own personal use?
    He even claims it to be legit! And that he wants me to give 50% to charity and 50% to myself.
    …I wonder he will reply since I asked him to show me proof…

    MICHEAL JERRY’s email is majiris@hotmail.com

  91. I am Barrister JOHAR BIN OTHMAN , a legal practitioner with JOHAR OTHMAN & HEMLY FIRM, Malaysia. I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition. I have a client, who died as a result of heart-related condition on the 20th November, 2012.

    I contacted you to assist in getting the funds left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this deposit valued at 10.5 million United States Dollars. The bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated.

    My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my late client, since both of you share the same surname, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you thereafter we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage of 60% to me and 40% to your kind self. All legal documents to back up your claim as my late client’s next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation in this proposition.

    This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

  92. Watch out for this clown’s email:

    Please read carefully as I am going to explain in details why I Contacted you. I must solicit your Confidentiality and assure you that I am contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit. Am attorney Fox Williams, A solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to late Mr Gabriel Goedken , The formal Sub-Controller in AMEC OIL(London) who died in a car crash in East London on the 15Th of MARCH 2013. Mr Gabriel Left behind a deposit of TEN MILLION FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS only ($10.4million) with a Finance Company Here In London.

    After the death of my client, the finance company contacted me, as his attorney to provide The Next of kin who should inherit Late Gabriel fortune this according to them is their policy in sure circumstances. Since the death of my client MARCH 2013 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 of kin. The board of directors of the Finance company just adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide my Late Client next of kin for the payment of the Deposited Fund 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 member 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 $10.4 million can be paid to you before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable . I do sincerely sympathize the death of my client but think it is unprofitable for his funds to be confiscated .

    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 Two years 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 Fund , 50% to me and 50% to you. I know there might be other persons out there with the same surname as my late 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 your claim. 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,If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed on you. Thanks for your understanding.
    Your expeditious response will be gratefully appreciated.

    INITIAL MESSAGE (Received 24/02/15):
    DATE RECEIVED: 24/02/2015
    SKYPE USERNAME: rashotik_0013

    Dear Drury,
    “I decided to write you this proposal in good faith, believing that you will not betray me. My name is Jasim AL Ali,a Credit Audit Officer of United Arab Bank, Dubai (U.A.B).I got your information during my search on your Country Chambers of Commerce. I am 48 Years of Age and Married with two Lovely Kids. It may interest you to hear that I am a man of peace and I only hope we can assist each other.I have been in search of someone with this last name (Drury ),so when I saw your name I was pushed to contact you and see how best we can assist each other believing that you will not betray me. I am a Banker here in United Arab Bank,Dubai (U.A.B).One Naema Drury ,citizen of your country and Gold dealer made a fixed deposit with my bank in January 2009 for 36 calendar months, valued at (US$26,700,000) Twenty Six Million, Seven Hundred Thousand US Dollars. The due date for this deposit contract was the 2nd of April 2012.Sadly Naema Drury , was among the death victims while on a business trip to Indonesia in September 2009 earthquake. He met his untimely death in the Indonesian 2009 September earthquake.

    My bank management is yet to know about his death, I knew about it because he was my friend and I was his Account Officer,Naema Drury did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, he was not married and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that (Naema Drury ) should give instructions on what to do about his funds, if to renew the contract.I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to know that Naema Drury is dead and do not have any Heir,they will take the funds for their personal use, so I don’t want such to happen.That is why I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the Next of Kin/ Heir to the account, since you are a foreigner and my bank head quarters will release the funds to you.There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of law.It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich already,I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds accordingly, 50% for me, 45% for you and 5% for any expenses that will be incurred during the time of claims .Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information highly confidential.We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response,You can contact me on my private email address:(jasimali09999@outlook.com) for details.

    is this a Scam guyz help

  95. A Mr.Barrister Richard Henry,contacted me here in N.Y.state,USA on Febuary 02,2015.His address is right now is a google account.Anybody,else had this contact?

  96. I want to assured you about the legality and safety of this project, letting you know about the involvement of the lawyer here who was the lawyer to the late depositor.

    You have no reason to worry about the safety of this deal,this is 100% brisk free. I am involved and the lawyer is also involved so you don’t have to worry about this. I swear in the name of god about the safety of this life beneficial transaction ok.

    When talking about safety, I should be the one to be worried because I would be here on ground to also convince the bank about your position as the next of kin, if anything should go wrong then I will be the one to be in trouble because I am physically present, pushing for you to be approved as the next of kin, so why worry when after the lawyer must have completed all legal process to position you legally as the next of kin which will protect and exonerate you.

    Listen, there is no point to forfeit the funds to the government ok because the government policies don’t favour ordinary citizens, so there is no point for the bank or government to turn over the money for their own personal use, so we claiming the funds is not a sin on our own side since the depositor is dead.

    The deceased deposited these funds without any one as his next of kin, as his account officer, I can use my position in the bank to get a foreigner to lay a claim on this fund with your name since you bear same last name with him.

    Please don’t reasons like a layman, this is not illegal because if we don’t claim it, some other bankers that comes across the funds will claim it for their own personal use, you and I need the money to be comfortable in life, if we claim the funds we can set aside some portion of the funds to support the less privileged and orphans, not the government because they won’t consider the helpless people.

    You should have yourself to blame if you throw away opportunity to help the poor with the funds rather than allowing government to divert it for their use.
    Think about what I have just told you

  97. His name is Salim Mohammed Tlemcani.

    This is about a deceased client in our bank who shares same last name with you. Let me give you an illustration of the information I want to pass across to you. If an individual opens an account in a bank without the knowledge of his family maybe for reasons best known to him obviously it will be him alone that knows he has money in such a bank. If accidentally that person dies, what do you think will happen to the money? Obviously it will be there in the bank for as long as nobody comes to claim it. This is because nobody will come to claim such funds as the depositor’s beneficiary or next of kin.

    I appeal to you to assist me in this business transaction regarding the funds deposited by our late client which amounts to £7,500,000.00 (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling). He was a business man based here in the United Kingdom. He deposited this amount with the Bank in 2006 before his untimely Death. He had suffered from heart disease before he died in the year 2007. The filing and recording department of the Bank have tried to contact his relatives but no fruitful information about the relatives. Presently this account is dormant because it is unclaimed. Now, as his account officer, I can use my position to get a foreigner to place a claim on this fund with your name since you bear same last name identity with him. I want you to know that all the required documents to fortify this claim can be provided by me and his personal lawyer who is working with me in this transaction. The lawyer will stand in for you if the bank requires you to come in person. The lawyer is working with me in this transaction and as such, we believe that we can work together and achieve this great goal. Therefore we will be successful to claim the fund with your name as soon as you are willing to comply and take the offer of 40% of the total amount after the claim and transfer of the fund into your designated account. Most importantly, it will be very wise of you, if you keep this transaction strictly and exclusively to yourself, in the interim and see that you do not start discussing or talking about it with anybody until we receive this money. My colleague who was working with Halifax Bank some years back had this same opportunity. He got a partner from Korea who worked with him in the transaction because his late client was from South Korea. Within 2wks the Bank released the money to his partner and today that my friend has relocated to Korea with his family and has setup big business with
    his partner.

    The lawyer and I cannot claim this money ourselves because we do not have same last name and the Bank knowing fully well that we are not citizens of his Country. Have no fear or worry as all document needed before the Bank can approve you as the next of kin will be provided by me. I will send the documents to you upon request by the Bank so that you can send the document to the Bank. This transaction does not require any type of delay because the Bank will close the account after three months and this is why we need to work toward this claim immediately and claim the fund within 10 Bank working days. The transaction can practically be concluded within 8 to 10 working days if you can adhere to my advice and to speed up actions on your own part too. Please I need you to reply me and inform me if you accept the sharing terms of 60/40. 60 for us and 40 for you.

    Please I will need your (1) Full name Including your middle name (2) other mobile telephone numbers (3) occupation and Age.

    I WILL SEND YOU A DRAFT APPLICATION THAT YOU WILL SEND TO THE BANK ONCE I GET YOUR REPLY TO THIS MAIL.

    Yours,

  99. Good day,

    Thanks for your response.Please permit me to introduce myself to you. I am Ms. Felicia Hernandez from Turkey currently based in Aberdeen due to settlement with my late husband. I requested for your help and trust in this matter because of the present problems I am facing now. I was married to Late Engr Mr. Cassidy Hernandez who worked with MULTINATIONAL OIL COMPANY EXXON MOBIL AS A DRILLING RIG SUPPLIER in Scotland for 18 years he died on 21st July 2002 on a plane crash with other passengers, We were married for twenty four years without a child. Before his death, he deposited the sum of {£7,500.000.00GBP}Seven million and Five hundred Thousand Great British Pounds sterling with a bank In Scotland in United Kingdom and this fund is presently with the bank awaiting my disbursement as beneficiary and next of kin to the funds. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer Problem.

    Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Charity organization or a good and God fearing person that will use this fund to build an orphanage home which was the dream of my late husband. l took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money. I kept this deposit secret till date; this is why I am taking this decision. I don’t think I will need any telephone communication in this regard presently because of the nature of my illness and the confidentiality of this transfer due to my husband family all around me.Upon your reply I shall give you the contact details of My Lawyer who will assist you with the documentations that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money also assist you in the transfer processes at the bank. I am very grateful to you for the interest shown in my plight and I want to assure you that you will be greatly rewarded for what you have chosen to do.

    Although we are knowing each other for the first time but I believe God has directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for assistance because I saw your profile on Microsoft EMAIL owners list and picked you. Be assured you stand no risk as this is my money, I and my late husband labored for it and me as the next of kin has the sole power to donate the funds to whoever I want.

    All I need is your absolute trust, commitment, confidentiality and honesty because I want to see my late husband’s vision fulfilled before I leave this sinful world. I will also want to know a little more about you regarding your life, your spiritual life what you do for a living so as for me to know you well. I require your urgent response, if you are trustworthy and willing to help carry out this good work.

    To this regard I will require your
    Full names:
    Address:
    Age:

    With these details I will also inform my lawyers to work with you and help arrange the transfer of the funds to you. As soon as you have received the fund then you will help me set up charity or distribute it to charity organizations and hospitals. I pray to be alive when you receive this fund and start this project so that you can visit me here if you wish to.

    I will be very happy if you can stand and fulfill this work of God which you have been called to do. With God all things are possible.

    Thanks

    Hello Sir,

    I am a senior accountant with Tesco Bank, UK. I have worked here for more than 9 years now and I was the personal accountant to one Engineer (Mohamed Abdul Rahman) a foreign contractor with SBM Offshore who has an account with my bank.

    Unfortunately, my client died along with his nuclear family at Belgium while on sabbatical in the summer of 2009, may their soul rest in peace. Several efforts were made to find his extended family through your embassy without success.

    I received a notice last week to provide the next of kin of Mohamed been his accountant or the account risk been transferred to the government (es-cheat) in 16 days time. I am contacting you to assist me in repatriating the funds left behind by my late client since you both share the same last name.

    This claim will be executed without breaching any UK laws and success is guaranteed if we cooperate on this. The bank will release the account to you because of your last name and my recommendation of you as the next of kin.

    I will forward my International passport to you when I get your response, so you know that i am not joking. The amount involved is 7,649,400 Pounds; I propose we share the proceeds 50:50, I think this is fair. I will give you all the necessary information about deal when I get your response.

    Regards,
    Al Jahwari Muneer.

    My name is Mr Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, a legal practitioner in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition. I have a client, who was deceased in November, 2009, 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$ 11.3 Million ( Say, Eleven Million, three 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 (maliksarwar@blumail.org)

  106. I have been contacted by a Mr James Griffin (Heir Hunter) 27 Old Gloucester Street London informing me of the inheritance left to me by the late Robert Schenk who died last year.

Upon these requests, I made several efforts to reach anyone related to him but without success.

    My perfected modalities as my late client´s Lawyer, has been expanded to include the transfer of the deposited vault valued at (US$7,900,000.00) to you either via diplomatic courier or by any alternative means desired as soon as the release of the vault is approved in your name.

    I want to assured you that all the modalities for vault release has being well studied and I can guarantee confidently the release of the vault if we both collaborate and work as a team. Confidentiality and avoiding undue publicity is the key to the transaction as these can jeopardize the process.Without undue emphasizes, I am vast in law and from my experiences I have no doubt that we can get the vault out without problems.

    EDWIN BORRINI ESQ

    13 CANAL STREET, NOTTINGHAM, NG1 7EH, UNITED KINGDOM

    BUSINESS PROPOSAL

    This business proposal is confidential 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 Edwin Borrini, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to a client of mine, who died along with his family in a plane crash on the 5th of August 2005.

    My late client a formal Sub-Comptroller working with Chevron Texaco Oil here in the United

    Kingdom and had Left behind a deposit of Sixteen Million British Pounds Sterling only (£16,000,000.00) 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’s close relative or his next of kin.

    The board of directors of the finance company now adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money or forfeit the money as an abandoned fund. The company had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me but after an investigation in the finance company, I found out that some members of the company wants to divert this fund into their private accounts for their own selfish interest and only want, to use the excuse that since I am not able to look for someone to make the claim, the money should be made unserviceable and that means submitting the fund to the federal government of this country and some to the company management which is not their main intentions.

    By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate family, I am very much aware of my client’s financial standing. I do sincerely sympathize the death of my client, but had thought it

    unprofitable for his funds to be submitted to the federal government of this country and the finance company where it is lodged. I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client which 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" 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, so that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at SIXTEEN MILLION POUNDS ONLY (£16,000,000.00) 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 late 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 your claim.

    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: edwin.borrini111@gmail.com for better confidentiality and send to me your telephone and fax numbers to enable us discuss further on this transaction. Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send you an e-mail the next step to take. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you. Thank you for your understanding.

    Sincerely,

    Edwin Borrini (Esq.).

  125. I just got an email from Paul Devitt about my inheritance from some fella in England who died working for Falklands Oil and Gas. What a crock.

  126. We received a fax from Herbert Smith Chambers (Attorneys in London) in the UK, trying to solicit an employee. It states that a distant family member has died and the lawyer of the deceased, Mr. Herbert Smith Esq. tried to split the inheritance with the employee. The English and grammar is somewhat incorrect further down the letter, and it states that he will split $32,600,000.00 if the employee will provide personal information, and the employee must state that he is a relative of the deceased.
    The email provided on the fax is: herbertsmithchamb@gmail.com, and the phone number provided is 004477000345631. The address provided is 216A High Street, North Eastham, London, E6 2JA.
    A very obvious scam, and I wanted to report it.

  127. Here is what I just got!

    Attn Dear Friend,

    I am the General Audit Manager, Accounts Department in
    Our bank. I have the opportunity of transferring the sum of (22.850.000.00
    Twenty two million eight hundred and fifty thousand united states dollars
    Only). This fund originally belonged to one of our bank Customer who died
    In the year 2009.

    My request for foreigner to stand as next of kin in this
    Business is because the fact that the customer is a foreigner. Based on
    The fact that this is a deal, I propose that 50% of this fund for you and 50%
    For me. I will give more detail of the transfer process as soon as you show
    Your interest in this transaction. Please be-informed that this dear is 100%
    Free risk, I will provide all the information?s to you

    Thanks,
    Best Regard,
    Mr. Kevin Donald

  128. Hi all, I was sent the Paul Devitt message, as above. I researched it carefully, as here in Melbourne, 15 years ago, we got a phone call out of the blue from a London lawyer and it turned out a distant aunt of my husband had genuinely died intestate, leaving a large estate and inheritance lawyers had tracked hubby to Australia! It was real and he and his cousins in UK shared in an estate worth over 500000 pounds. But I guess lightning doesn’t strike twice! Pity! It’s the stilted English that made me antsy, although I thought that might be put down to an Irishman! Anyway the Oil and Gas website is currently being ‘redesigned’ (they go to a bit of trouble) and Paul Devitt is a member of a prominent UK law firm, but not THIS Paul Devitt. Cheeky! Hope no one falls for it.

    All the best.

  129. I have got exactly that e-mail from "Mr Paul Devitt" today.
    I responded…and wrote that my occupation is LAWYER 😀

    I guess I will never hear from him again.

  130. Here’s recent one which mentions a real law firm’s company. Note the use of the UK 703 phone code – a ‘follow me’ number which can be anywhere in the world.

    This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it should be treated as such. I am Paul Goodman, a lawyer and solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr. George Walsh, hereinafter referred to as my client’ who worked as an independent oil merchant in my country UK before he died in a car crash with his immediate family on the 28th of July, 2004.

    I carried out this search on you and I am contacting you because you bear a similar last name with that of my late client and the further reasons are as follows:

    Since the death of my client in July, 2004, I have written several letters to his embassy with an 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.

    However, going by the recent publications by the Trustee bank in which my client deposited the sum of £8.7m (GBP), I fear a likely winding up proceedings in the coming months. I seek your consent therefore, to present you to the trustees as my client’s next of kin since you bear a similar last name with him so that you can help repatriate the money to a foreign account and I promise a fair share between us at the end of the transfer.

    If you are very interested, contact me through my secured email address; paulgoodman19@hotmail.co.uk so I can appraise you with further details. I assure you that I have all the requirements to execute this claim legitimately.

  139. Almost got scammed. Received this email today after replying to a question if I have this reletave.

    appreciate your reply , I choose to contact you for this very important issue and I believe you can be of help to me, well I believe with your permission I can present you as his relative. Am Mark L. Fishes by name, originally from Ireland and living here in Malaysia a lawyer by profession, personal attorney to Mr. Michael, an expatriate who is a resident here in Malaysia. On the 2nd of January, 2006 I received a call that my client died in the Tsunami Disaster with his wife and child while on vacation at Phuket Island in Thailand.

    Since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of my client’s extended relatives but it has proved unsuccessful. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the funds left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this deposit is lodged. The bank has issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin or have the account confiscated. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the biological relatives of my late client, I hereby seek your consent to present you to the bank as his next-of-kin since you are a foreigner and bear the same last-name, so that the balance on his account can be transferred to you as inheritance and thereafter, you and me can share the money; 30% to me, 30% to you and 40% will be donated to needy.

    As a lawyer I will obtain from the relevant authority, necessary legal paperwork that will be used to substantiate and legalize our claim to the inheritance. All I require is your consent; honest co-operation and assistance to enable us see the deal through.

    Finally, I guarantee that the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, we can’t discuss on this public site, please if possible you can send me your email to write you more details if you are interested or you can email me at markadvocate@live.co­m

    (have pictures & bank ID card if required, contact me)

    Inheritence spam letter from Ghana – Dr David Appia (davidappia@dr.com)

  141. This scam is still alive and kicking. Just received a letter from Hoi Wei Lin. Tells me my deceased relatives estate is worth 10.5 mill us dollars. Shame they couldn’t get the names right. Starts off with jan Doveston then goes onto Albert. None of these names are in my family anyway so immediate alarm bells. . Usual nonsense about we will share the money 50 50. Keep it confidential and communicate by phone email or telephone. The number is a hong kong number. Shocking that these people write to people (albeit in dreadful English) and many would be taken in. So the names change but the scam is the same. If you get one put it in the Bin or if you have time on your hands. Waste their time like Rob did.

  142. Thank you so much for posting this information. My mother was about to lose her money on this scam and posting all the information was helpful. Especially the picture. As it turns out, my mother was sent the same exact picture which helped her to realize beyone a shadow of a doubt this is in fact a scam!!! I appreciate all your help in investigating this for my mother and not giving this thief funds he clearly does not deserve!

    All our best to you and your future legitimate business transactions.

    Alicia Smith and her mother.

  143. I have just spent the last month playing the game of "Hong Kong Inheritance Scam"
    It started with a snail mail then was followed by about 50 emails before they eventually got round to requesting money. USD 15,600 for advance payment of fees. It took about 4 weeks.
    If you are interested in reading the full story then I have uploaded all the emails and attachments to a page on my own website.
