Hi there. I received these two emails from a possible scammer.
For Your Attention

Sequel to your non response of our earlier letter to you on behalf of the Trustees and Executors to the Will of our late client. I wish to notify you that you were listed as a beneficiary to the total sum of 8,550,000.00 GBP (Eight million Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand British Pounds) in the codicil and last testament of the deceased.

Until his death he was a major share holder in big companies which include textile and construction companies. He was a very great philanthropist during his life time. He died on 9th January 2004 at the age of 68.He was buried on the 3rd of February. Even though he was a foreigner living and working here he requested before his death that he be buried here in his words, "I regard here as My home and the people as my people" We therefore reckoned that you can receive this funds as you are qualified by your name identity.

All the legal papers will be processed on your response.In your acceptance of this deal, we request that you kindly forward any proof of identity of yours, your current telephone and fax numbers and forwarding address to enable us file necessary documents at our high court probate division for the release of this sum of money to you.

Please email [email protected]

Yours Faithfully
Dr. Nicholas Williams


Attention:M L-----a.
Dear M ,
Thank you for your brief email response. Let me try to explain to you
firsthand the details of this project because it is important that you
understand why you have been contacted in the first instance.
I am a British citizen and work as an attorney in Sao Tome & Principe,the Gulf oil rich state in the South Atlantic and will be very glad to meet you in
person (IF POSSIBLE) to ascertain a vivid clarity of this transaction.However
before then, it is important for me to know of your interest in this
matter especially when you only got my email on the net. But bear it in mind
emphatically that you are being contacted for something legitimate. We
have all the legal backings to pull this through as long as we have
confidence in your fullest co-operation and understanding of this matter.
The case of our client is an unsual one as his death was abrupt and
without a will covering this sum mentioned to you.This leaves us no choice but
to appoint an inheritor.He was well placed in this society as an oil service company owner and was into crude oil refining,
We have the responsibility to sort out the administrative details on his death. We have the power to decide what
happens to this sum as it will be administered in accordance with
strict rules and regulations known as "Rules of Intestacy". We needed a very
reputable person to be nominated as the beneficiary in the United
Kingdom or abroad,rather than allow these funds to be confiscated.So, like I
said in my earlier email to you, I am contacting you because you bear the same
surname as our late client NOT that you are related to him. The name
of our late client was MR.RAYMOND L-----A. By this we can very easily file in
for the sum to be released to your account as the inheritor of the sum.
Be reminded that, we are NOT saying you are related to the Testator
but that since you bear the same surname as L-----A and the similarity in the initials.The transaction can be
very easily accomplished. Again,please note that to accomplish this
transaction more quickly and without any hindrance, you must understand that I
will need your fullest support. This can be more easily achieve only if you
understand the details of the transaction. Please note that I will
also demand maximum confidentiality or discreteness in all matters. All the
necesary legal documentations will be in place.
You are at liberty to reach the undersigned by phone in the event of
further query,as this will enable me further explain the steps to be
taken in realising this project.
I await your early response.
Nicholas Williams,
Union Attorney Chambers,
10,Nelson Mandela Drive,
Sao Tome.


What do you say?

I replied to him saying I wouldn't accept any future communication on this matter. That was before I found this site. Too bad. I could have had fun with this.

Welcome Morgan

Yes, (no 'possible' about it) it's an absolutely standard scam - lots of non-existent money to move and fees needed for, lawyers, money laundering and anti-terrorist certificates, etc.

Don't forget to read the stickies about safe baiting
