Oh look, a “barrister” from Nigeria who thinks his scam email will come as a “surprise”.  I can’t imagine why he would think that.  I get scam emails every day, many of them from Nigeria.  Before you run away with the idea that I think all Nigerians are scammers (or all scammers are Nigerian) I have to tell you that I have a colleague in Nigeria.

Anyhow – this person is in Nigeria (I looked up their ip address) and is a scammer.  His only interest in money is his interest in getting his hands on your money, which he will ask you to send him to pay “fees” if you make the mistake of replying.

Dear Friend

It is obvious that this proposal will come to you as a surprise.This is because we have not met before but I am inspired to sending you this email following the huge fund transfer opportunity that will be of mutual benefit to the two of us.

However, I am Barrister Evans Thomas Attorney to the late Engr.Ronald Johnson, a national of Northern American, who used to work with Shell Petroleum Development Company(SPDC) in Nigeria . On the 11th of November,2002. My client,his wife And their three children were involved in a car accident along Sagamu/Lagos Express Road.

Unfortunately they all lost their lives in the event of the accident, Since then I have made several inquiries to several Embassies to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client,I can easily convince the bank with my legal practice that you are the only surviving relation of my client. Otherwise the Estate he left behind will be confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged.Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about $15 million U.S dollars(Fifteen million U.S.America dollars).

Consequently,The bank issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over several years now.I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased,so that the proceeds of this account valued at $15million U.S dollars can be paid to your account and then you and me can share the money. 55% to me and 40% to you,while 5% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require.

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through and also forward the following to me:

Your Full Name:
Your House Address:
Your Tele-phone And Fax No:
Your Age and Gender :
