Another Scam: from JUNE MARKS ATTORNEYS

Dear .........,
    
My name is Mr. June  Marks  a legal practitioner with JUNE MARKS ATTORNEYS in Block A, Ground Floor Grayston Ridge Office Park 144 Katherine Street Sandston.

I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition.

I have a client by Name Mr. Adams 
Ong, who was deceased in November, 2010, in Cape Town, South African. 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$ 5.250 Million ( Five Million, Two Hundred And Fifty 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 (

Barrister June  Marks  .ESQ
