This was the email that I got first:
888 portland street,
URGENT ATTENTION NEEDED
I am Dr.Dennis Collins, The personal account officer to Mr Mark Smith a very rich gold merchant who owns
a multi-national company. There is an urgent issue
on ground that needs your urgent attention. Mr.
Mark Smith died with his entire family in an auto-crash
on the 2nd of October 2001. He has a very big multi-national company in united kindom where I served as
a personal accounting officer to him.
After his death, I observed with patience and
notice that nobody has come up as the surviving
relative or next of kin to Mr. Mark Smith. Because this
man was good to me when he was alive, I took it upon
myself to find out why nobody has come up as his next
of kin.Initially my research revealed to me that he
has no surviving close relative.
There is a policy here in my country, which is
if nobody comes up as the relation or next of kin to
the deceased within a period of five years, the money
in the deceased account would be forfeited to the
Government with immediate effect.
I then made more findings by going to the bank
and requesting to know the names of the people Mr.
Mark Smith declared as the next of kin. The bank
granted me my request and provided me with the list of
Mr. Mark Smith's next of kin. Among this list was your
name with a brief contact information about you. Since
you are the only next of kin left whose status has not
yet been confirmed, I then decided to send you these
email to let you know that you are the only next of kin
to Mr. Mark Smith left.
The total money in his account is Ten Million
Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars(US$10,500,000.00). At this point, immediately
you receive these email reply back to me with your
full contact information including phone and fax
numbers so that I can forward it to the bank as the
only surviving next of kin to Mr. Mark Smith so that
the bank can start processing the release of the funds
to you before it is too late.
I await your urgent response.
