SPAM/SCAM ALERT! Who's this yoyo trying to kid??

From: Barrister John Sule
John Sule chamber’s Lagos Nigeria
E-mail:barristersule@webmail.co.za


Attnear Sir,

I am Barrister John Sule a solicitor at law. A personal
attorney to late Mr.kenneth Gigg,a nationality of U.S.A
(Your countryman) who worked with Shell-development Oil
Company in Nigeria. Here after referred as my client. On
the 21st of April 1999, my client, his wife and their three
children travelled to Switzerland and unfortunately i
received an unpleasant tidings that they were involved in a
car accident along Zurich express road Switzerland.All
occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives.

Since then I have made several inquires to his embassy to
locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has
proved unsuccessful.After these several unsuccessful
attempts to locate any member of his family. Hence,I
contacted you.

I am contacting you to assist me to repatriating the money
he deposited with finance company in london and property
left behind by my client before they get confiscated in the
bank treasury or declared unserviceable by the Bank where
this huge deposit were lodged. Particularly, the finance
company in london where the deceased had an account valued
at about 10.5 million dollars has issued me a notice to
provide the next Of kin or have the account confiscated
within some specified period of time.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives
for almost 5years now I seek your consent to present you as
the next of kin of the deceased.All You have to do is to
write application of claim as the relative attaching his
last name to your first name(Your 1st name + Gigg) so that
the proceeds of this account valued at 10.5 million dollars
can be paid to your account.It has not been my intention to
posses his money but due to my unsuccessful attempts to
locate any of his extended relative and the deadline which
the Bank has given me before the money gets confiscated is
fast approaching.

Nevertheless, if you are sincerely willing to assist me in
this matter i will not hesitate to send you a comprehensive
and convincing application which you have to submit to the
Bank in London immediately as the relative to my late
client for the proceed of this payment to us.Please my good
friend i will be grateful if you will not have any second
thought than to comply with me in a very sincere and honest
manner.

Since I have all necessary legal documents that can be used
to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your
honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction
through.

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the
law.More-over,now we do not know each other you have to
assure me that you will not seat on this money when finally
gets into your account by issuing to me a promisory letter
and your passport.I will not hesitate to send you the
application which you will sumbit to the finance company
for approvals.At the end of this transaction you will be
entitiled to 35% of the fund while 55% will be mine and 10%
for any expenses that may incur during the process.

I earnestly wish you will put off any doubt or disbelieve
and handle this matter with me in one accord.Please get in
touch with me immediately through the above E-mail address
to enable us discuss further about this transaction and
include your private telephone and fax number for faster
communication.

Best regards,

Barrister John Sule.

encounter in the above message i have offered you.mail me

Okay, I don't work at a bank, nor have I ever been involved in a situation like this. But I'm willing to bet that "5years" is a little bit out of the range of "some specified period of time."

I'm sure a true banker wouldn't wait long enough for the guy's head to hit the windshield that killed him before claiming the money for the bank.

Sorry, just a banker's joke.

Keith, I can't beleive somebody would fall for this guys line of BS. I guess there's a new dummy born every day!The cyber cops need to pay this clown a visit.

Bill! Don't worry about me man, this guy won't even get a nasty email from me.. He ain't worth my time. Speaking of time, I've spent all weekend with a 8" pad and 80 grit, getting the 54 down to the bone. The sheet metal looks great. Now We just have to get around the small stuff and clean up the details. Need to do the rear quarter patch panels too.. Gotta go to work - catch ya'll on the turn around!
