Letter states he\'s legal rep for same surname guy, who he and his entire family died in a cataclysm in 2004. Apparently a Trunk box deposit was made to the Deposit outlet in Spain, to the tune of $10,800,000.00! Tries to be reassuring in letter but it is phony as a three dollar bill.

Dear, ______________ My names are Santo Newman Patel, (Attorney) legal representative to Late Engr. Aslam COX and family, who died along side with the immediate family in 2008. After confirmation of their death, I have made several enquiries to locate any relative of the late client family which has so far proved unsuccessful. In bid to locate a family member of my late client I decided to broaden my search through bureau of international public records to locate any member of the extended family hence I saw your name. I know you might not be biologically related to them but since you both bear the same surname which is the basic requirement for this claim in line with the existing law here in the kingdom of Spain I decided to contact you to enable us to retrieve this deposit of my late client from the Deposit Outlet here in Spain. Before the mayhem that claimed their lives, my late client's family deposited a Trunk box containing $7,800,000.00 (Seven Million, Eight Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) with the Deposit Outlet here in Spain. As attorney to the deceased family the outlet mandated me to present the heir/inheritor to make claim or the deposit will be confiscated and taken to the Bureau of local treasury as unclaimed. Based on the aforementioned situation I am obliged to solicit your attention to my proposal; this is by virtue of its nature as been utterly confidential and personal. Though I am aware of the fact that a request of this magnitude might make one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all be well at the end of the day. With regards to this, I seek your consent to present you as the heir/inheritor to the deceased family to the Deposit Outlet, upon this the deposit will be released to you after a due legal process and my suggestion in that the entire content will be further disbursed on equal ratio between us. As a practicing attorney all I require from you is you honest co-operation and collaboration to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this transaction would be executed under strict legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of the law and legal risk. For further questions of clarification you can get across to me via any of my enlisted contact details:- Tel: +34632363440 Fax:+34917903963 Emails: barristernewmanpatel@gmail.com Do get back to me as well even when you are not willing to collaborate with me so as to enable me further my search for another partner. Kindest Regards, Santo Newman Patel.

Letter received regarding late relative who "died along side with the immediate family." "I know you may not be biologically related to them but since you both bear the same surname which is the basic requirement for this claim" "Before the mayhem that claimed their lives 2004... a mutual fund investment fund in a Trunk box containing $6,8000,000.00... with the Deposit Outlet here in Spain."
"I am obliged to solicit your attention to my proposal... I seek your consent to present you as the heir" "the deposit will be released to you after a due legal process..."
The web link above could be for a real office, except the phone numbers aren't listed, which is odd. I found the Web site through a search - it was not included in the letter.
The text in the letter was too similar to the other scams posted here - even though the names have been changed after a year.

Not scammed because I search for information on the Web.
