I’m sure you know the reason why “Mr John Miles” has “withheld” the surname of the deceased. Simple. Because there is (or should that be was) no deceased who shared your “surname identity” because this scammer has no idea who you are or what your surname is.
If you reply, this scammer will soon start asking you for money. The only “beneficiary” will be the scammer’s bank acount, which he is hoping to fill with your money.
Good Day, Be informed that my previous mail was not responded and I am not sure if it did get to you since I have not heard from you. I wish to notify you again that you were listed as a beneficiary to the total sum of 6,000,000.00 GBP (Six Million British Pounds) in the codicil and last testament of the deceased. (Name now withheld since this is our second letter to you). I contacted you because you bear the surname identity and therefore can present you as the beneficiary to the inheritance. I therefore reckoned that you could receive these funds as you are qualified by your name identity. All the legal papers will be processed upon your acceptance. Upon your acceptance of this deal, we request that you kindly forward to us your letter of acceptance, your current telephone and fax numbers and a forwarding address to enable us file necessary LEGAL documents in your name at our high court probate division for the release of the fund in question. Contact me immediately so that we can get this done. Kind regards, Mr.John Miles
