Hello my friend

I wish to seek your consent to partner with me. I will like to present you as the beneficiary to the total sum of $9,500,000.00 USD belonging to a deceased client of my law firm who has same last name as you. A preliminary search through Ancestry DNA program has revealed that you might be distant relative to my deceased client. No other relatives have been located till date.

This is 100% legitimate and risk free as I will provide the legal expertise to guide you through the process.

After your acceptance, I will present to you the original certificate of deposit to show proof of funds and documents will be prepared to back up your claim. This claim requires a high level of confidentiality and may take up to thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of your consent to process. Please contact me at your earliest
convenience and forward to me your first and last name with full contact address to enable me file necessary paperwork for the release of the funds to you.

Dear ,
I am glad to receive your response to my request for a partner to join me in this deal. I am David D. MacLeod an attorney with MacLeod Law Firm. I was attorney to my deceased client, late Engr. James Smith.
I understand my initial email to you was not detailed and could be a little confusing especially as you do not know who I am. I retrieved your contact address in my search for the next of kin or someone with same last name to a deceased customer of our bank late Engr. James Smith, an engineer and Co-Owner of Jameson & Erikson Electric Inc. a London Ontario Canada based Private Electricity Company for thirteen years. Unfortunately this customer died of heart attack leaving his bank account with an open beneficiary status.
Also, I have worked out all modalities to complete the transaction successfully. After the transfer of the funds to you, we shall share the funds in the ratio of 45% for me, 45% for you, while 10% goes to charity.. This transaction is 100% risk free and I assure you that this transaction would be handled under due inheritance claim procedures and every necessary legitimate arrangement will be put in place to make you the sole beneficiary of the funds. We have not been able to get any relatives to claim the money and the government has given one month deadline, if no one comes to claim the money then the money will be declared abandoned / forfeited and taken over by government. As a last-ditch effort, I consulted the Ancestry DNA registry to look for any last known relative as the relative and next of kin to claim the money, that is how I got your contact and email details and contacted you to complete this process with me.
As stated in my letter, I have contacted you with good intention and I assure you that this opportunity will put us all at a better place than we are now which is a successful end. Take my word for it, “YOU WILL NEVER REGRET WORKING WITH ME”, and I expect same trust from you please. Late Engineer James Smith was a US citizen who died in the year 2014 at the age of 76, born in 1938 in US. He moved to Canada in 1982 and established himself in electricity engineering business until his sudden death. He was married to late Mrs. ROSE SMITH, who died in a car crash with their only daughter eight years before his death.
I have closely monitored this bank account with a Canadian bank over this period of 3 years and all records have shown that no relative of his has made any attempt to claim these funds. I will guide you through the entire process until the bank releases the funds. I have practiced law for over 20 years and will never do anything illegal. This is important because the entire funds would be taken over by the Government as an unclaimed estate by the end of this year according to the 3 year dormancy allowable period for a deceased estate. Once the process of a claim is initiated now, the funds will no longer go back to the Government that is why I have contacted you so we can make this claim now.
You have nothing to be worried about, there is absolutely no illegality involved in this, so I expect you to comply with me and follow my instructions accordingly.
For us to move forward, I will like you to kindly answer the questions below:
I. Are you ready and capable to handle this transaction?
2. In view of the needed confidentiality and trust in this transaction, are you willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement to give me my 50% of the inheritance after the money is transferred to you?
3. Address:
4. Your age.
5. Are you married, single or divorced?
6. Your direct telephone numbers, Mobile phone is preferred
7. Your occupation or the type of business you do.
Once I get the above information and answers from you with your full address and phone number, I will email you certain confidential information about the account and the deceased customer, an application letter designating you as sole beneficiary and transfer of ownership. Kindly try as much as possible to keep this information confidential until we are able to claim the funds from the bank successfully.
I await your response.
Yours Sincerely,
David D. MacLeod MacLeod Law Firm 2 Bloor St West, Toronto, ON Canada M4W 3E2 Email:

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
