I’m sure (heavy sarcasm) that a respected “solicitor at law” whose client entrusted him with $12.5m would email random people using a hotmail email address. ¬†Adding that $12m to the rest of the money I’ve been told I am owed this week would mean I could retire in comfort. ¬†Sadly I can’t and will continue writing this blog from my sofa in the cold and rain of the English countryside rather than from a nice sunny beach on an exotic island.

You know as well as I do that “Aart Barend” has no intention of sending you any money and every intention of getting his thieving hands on your cash if you are daft enough to send it to him.

Dear Friend

My name is Aart Barend a solicitor at law. I was the personal Attorney to
a client who made a fixed deposit of fund valued
at USD$12,500,000.0(Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars) with a Finance Company here in Europe and
unfortunately, He lost his life in the Libyan Civil War.

He left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents
related to the deposit still in my possession.
Recently, the financial company contacted me asking for the next of kin to
the funds or funds may be declared to the
government as unclaimed.

Upon a clear and legitimate agreement with you, I seek your consent to
present you as the next of kin,
so that my late client’s funds will not be confiscated by the Financial
Regulatory Authority.

You will be entitled to 40% of the total fund, 50% for me while 10% is to
be marked out for any expenses that will be incurred
during the clearance process of transfer of the fund to your bank account.
Be informed that there is no risk involved as all
necessary legal documents that will be used to back you up as the legal
beneficiary and next of kin of my late client will be procured.

Kindly, get in touch with me by my e-mail (aartbarend_ab@yahoo.cn) or
telephone (+31 6 49 507 921)to enable us discuss further.

You should also send your telephone number so I can call you when necessary.

Do not forget that a transaction of this magnitude requires utmost
confidentiality and sincerity.

I look forward to your urgent response.

Thank you.

Aart Barend
