Attn Dear,

Please kindly accept my apology for sending unsolicited mail to you I believe you are a highly respected personality considering the fact that I sourced your profile from a human resource profile database on your country. Though, I do not know to what extent you are familiar with events.


I am Barrister John Williams, a Solicitor. I am the Personal Attorney to Mr.Steve Anderson, who used to work with Siamrak Company Limited. On the 21st of April 2003, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Sukhumvit Express Road.

Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence, I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client in a Finance Company, Particularly, the Finance House where the deceased deposited the US$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars only).

Consequently, this Finance House issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to claim the US$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars only) in their custody within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 4 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased to claim the fund as the Next of Kin to him so that the fund will be transferred to your account by the Finance House.

Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement of the fund and then you and I will share the money in this order: 50% will be for me, 40% will be for you.While 10% is for execution of the fund incase of any expenses you encountered during the process of the fund into your account. I have all the necessary legal documents that can back our claim we will make with the Finance House.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

If you are interested in this transaction, kindly furnish me with your

1.full name,
2.address,
3.cell number
4.sex
5.age
6.occupation
7.telephone and fax numbers

To enable us commence all the legal documents immediately. Please

Best regards .

Another Scam

Dear Friend,

Long ago, I have been waiting for you to contact me for your Certified International bank of $1.750.000 United States Dollars, but to no avail. Having waited for long I contacted the bank where the Draft was issued to enquire if it has expired or getting closer. The Operation Manager of the issuing bank disclosed that the expiring date is almost at hand and the Draft will be ineffective before it gets to your waiting hands.

I advised him to convert the Cheque to fiscal cash, package it on trunk and I saved it with Trans-world Diplomatic Courier Service without letting them know the original contents. This is because I did not want the Draft to loose its value under the umbrella of expiration as I will be out of country for four months course. Base on the Post Graduate course, I will be back to the country on August 2008.

You are advised to contact the Courier Company as soon as possible to know when the delivery will taka place I have paid for the delivering Charge, None Inspection fee and insurance Insurance Premium.The only money you will pay before the delivery will take place is ($175.00 US) One Hundred & Seventy-Five United States Dollars only for Security Keeping. I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage. Having reach the Courier Company,

Contact details of the Operation Manager of the Courier Company read thus:

Name: Mr.Samuel Mensah.
E-mail Id: samuelmensah2008@yahoo.cn

I am waiting for your urgent response.

Yours Faithfully,

Hon.James Ashley
