Subject: More details about this transaction
Dear Mr. Dave McDave,

I’m writing in confirmation that I received your mail over my request
to present you to the Bank as my late client’s next of kin.

My late client was a citizen of your country but lived most of his
live in Africa until his death. He immigrated to Togo my country in
1975 and lived here ever since.I do not have his birth certificate but
his death certificate. He confided in me that he was raised up in an
orphanage home as the mother died immediately after his birth. His
mother he never grew up to know and he never mentioned about any
father to me.

This transaction will undergo normal procedures as stipulated in the
financial and allied matters act and all legal documents will be
issued in your name. I contacted you because you share the same last
name with my late client (blessed memory) and so you can lay claims to
this huge amount he left behind as his next of kin.

The success of this claim lays in our ability to work as partners. The
Bank does not know any of the deceased relation and as well lack
ability in identifying the next of kin. The bank will always rely on
my attestation on your behalf as the presenter.

As a matter of fact, you may or may not be related to the deceased
client. You are only to act as the next of kin while I’ll make
available for you, all information/documents that might be needed by
the Bank to declare you the beneficiary to the fund. I expect your
maximum co-operation, honesty and sincerity in this transaction
because as the next of kin, once the fund is approved, it is expected
that the Bank will transfer it at your directives.

For us to work as partners and achieve our aim, I have to first of
all, present you to the Bank as the beneficiary to the inheritance
fund which will be followed by the formal application for the fund’s
transfer to you. To perfectly do this presentation, I will need your
personal information so that you may appear a little bit familiar to
me during the presentation exercise. Besides, the information will be
useful in the amendment and rectification of the information in my
file to suite us.

The information is:

1. Your complete name
2. Age
3. Sex
4. Marital status
5. Profession
6. Private telephone and fax number,
7. Address and Nationality

I guarantee you that this transaction will be done in a cordial matter
such that our position and profession will be protected during and
after the claim.

The fund is neither yours nor mine. It’s only been necessitated by circumstance.

For being involved in this transaction, I have therefore resolved to
offer you 50% of the total sum as gratification in helping me champion
this business. 50% will be for me. Please, understand that I put so
many things into consideration before offering you this 50% and I do
hope that it will be appreciated.

I ‘m hoping to getting the information to enable me proceed to the
Bank and do the presentation, thereafter that I will prepare and send
to you, the application that will be submitted to the Bank. You may
call me through this number if you need more clarification on this
matter +228 9973-5393. You are free to ask question regarding the area
you do not perfectly understand.

Best Regards,
Barrister Grace Folly (Esq).

contacting you in this business.

I can perceive from your statements that there is no doubt that you
may be scary and afraid of events and skeptical with this development.
I too, with conscience will feel the same way when a total stranger
writes to me on such confidential matters through the Internet. I will
be bound to ask a few questions and need clarifications. Moreover,with
the negative reports of the present trend, one has to be extremely
careful before venturing into such business.

make me loss my job.

I cannot risk your personality or put you into trouble. I am a family
woman and I place a lot of interest in the family at large and God. At
my age, education and professional status, I cannot delve into a
venture that is detrimental and disgraceful to my family and to
humanity at large. If I do it, I am risking my years of long service
and consequent jail.

protected and secured and any information that you give in respect of
this transaction would be treated with strictest confidence and use
