| Scammer - Your Long-lost Relative has passed away and left a large sum of money |
Dear -, Thank you for your message. I am Atako Kinston personal Attorney to late Mr. T. A. (my last name), who lived and worked here in the Republic of Togo (West Africa) for more than twenty years as a major contractor. On the 18th of January, 2010 he and his wife and their only daughter died in an automobile accident while visiting a neighboring country on vacation. He had an investment deposit totaling a sum of US$ 14.5 million with the bank here. I have contacted you in this matter so that the fund will not be confiscated by the bank (since I had sought for the relatives without success). I know that you might not be related or even know late Mr. Thomas Alfred (my last name), since he had non-known living relative (he came to Togo sometime in 1978). Please understand that the next of kinship as stated in the inheritance law is not limited to relations of the deceased nor is it confided to the circuit of parental relationship, rather it is by choice of the benefactor as regards to whom he/she wishes to will it to (beneficiary) either formally by write up ,or informally by secret information disclosure to beneficiary, be him/ her business partner, relation, kinsmen, friend or well-wisher, therefore by virtue of the above stated, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to my late client since the supposed next of kin also died along with him. As a matter of fact, all documents that will be needed in a transaction of this nature ascertaining you as the beneficiary and next of kin to my late client will duly and legally be obtained in your name and favor. I do not know you in person but I feel that you will be human enough to be honest to me at least for bringing you into a deal capable of fetching us both something tangible.. Also, I contacted you owing to your enviable profile and hope that you will be honest with me in this transaction that will fetch us something tangible. I want you to understand that death is not something that any reasonable person should play with. My proposal came to you because you bear My late client Mr.Thomas. (my last name), who died with his supposed Next of Kin/Heiress Apparent, Miss Rose (Daughter), I have searched for any other members of his relative without any fruitful result. Then it was until when the bank sent me a notice of their resolution to confiscate the estate in line with their abandoned property decree of 1993, since I was not able to locate any member of his relative that I decide to contact you for this claim as his only SURVIVING RELATIVE since you bear the same last name and share the same nationality with him. More so, you shall admit with me that since my late client died intestate(without a written will) and the apparent heiress died with him, that his estate will be inherited by statute, and this statute according to the customary law of Togo accord any surviving member of his family "right to claim". It is on this wise that I contacted you, since you bear the same surname with my late client; this will stand as a nexus to establish un-doubtful kinship between you and my late client.Having understood the process of this claim, hereunder is what we stand to benefit in this claim, the fund in question is $14.5 m (14.500000 United State Dollars). After the successful transfer of the fund into your designated account in your country, 45% of the total fund will be for you, 45% will be for me and my family while the remaining 10% will be used to establish the charitable foundation in your country in the name of my late client. If you have any question regarding this sharing ratio, feel free, this is a deal.Claims prerequisites: below are the information necessary for us to kick start the claim. Be it as it may, the information is needed to present you officially to the finance firm with a draft application letter of claim which will be backed by a sworn Affidavit of claim sworn in the High Court of Togo, Lome Jurisdiction. This is preceded by an application for a grant of letters of Administration by the probate appointing you as the executor/administration of the said estate. I want to assure that you have nothing to worry about as all proceedings will be legal and legitimate, at least as an intellectual I can ascertain actions that may be considered repugnance to the law. I want to also assure you that the bank where the fund was domiciled was only acting as caretaker of the estate, as his personal attorney; the bank will release the fund to whomever I present to them. All you need do is to adhere to my instructions and all will be fine. I wait for positive response, Best regards, Hon Atako Kinston ESQ Call +22899586637
