Spammy – Mr Frank wants to share
This letter is not intended to cause you any embarrassment in whatever form, rather it is intended to contact your esteemed self. Firstly, I must solicit your confidentiality. I know that a proposal of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that it is made in good faith and will be of mutual benefit.
The desire to not cause me embarrassment through a scam solicitation completely puzzles me – Why would I be the one embarrassed? Shouldn’t that be the writer?
I am Mr. Albert Frank, The Personal attorney to Mr. Jim Cruz, a consultant with an oil firm here in Nigeria. On the 25th of January 2005, my client and his wife were involved in an auto crash accident along Washita-Minna Express Road. Unfortunately, they lost their lives in the event of the accident, since then I have made several contacts as to locate any of his extended relatives, but all proved abortive. Hence, I decided to contact you.
Interesting that in the UK you do actually have 12 years from the date of death to file a claim against an estate but here in the US it can be as little as 3 months.
Even more interesting is reading up on road conditions in Nigeria; it’s more likely that you’ll get stuck for days on a road than it is to get into a crash.
Ok back to the story… dead rich people, no relatives, got it…
I am contacting you to assist in retrieving the money valued at US$22.5 million dollars that was left behind by my client with the Spring Bank of Nigeria plc., before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank.
Unserviceable? That’s not a term I’d use with money, unless it’s like confederate dollars?!
Consequently, the bank issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days. since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now, I hereby seek your consent to act as the next of kin to the deceased, the proceeds of this account valued at (US$22.5 million dollars) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money. I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up this project.
Of course, you do!
My suggestion to you is that, I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin/beneficiary to the fund deposited by my late client so that the proceeds valued at US$22.5 million dollars will be paid to you. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account, which you shall send to the bank, we shall share in the ratio of 50% for you, and 50% for me. I have worked out a procedure that will ensure success, and as a lawyer, I will ensure that all our actions are within the confines of the law.
I wonder if anyone has ever responded to one of these demanding a different split?
Should you be interested please, furnish me with your most direct tel and cell phone numbers for oral conversation after which I will provide you with more details of this transaction and how to proceed.
Oral conversation? As opposed to…interpretative dance? Smoke signals? Morse code?
Mr. Albert Frank
