I request that you go through the details below for a better understanding of this possible joint venture.
My mail to you was written as a matter of last resort because of the circumstances surrounding this claim. Mr Ruben Smith, was a diamond merchant and he had business dealings around Europe and Africa. He died in 2009 at 56, along side his wife, Maria, 43, and their only daughter, Katharine, 11.
I am not too sure you are actually related to this person because we have since carried out a search on his actual extended family ties and which efforts have been to no avail and hence my contacting you. I had contacted you to solicit your honest assistance in re profiling funds belonging to my late client. I want you to consider the details so you could understand the fuller reasons I need your co-operation. Mr Smith lived most of his years here in S.A (South Africa) but traveled often. I served as his private attorney for the last eight years preceding his death and I had known the family a little while before then. Mr. Smith migrated into S.A a long time ago as an orphan.I never knew his father but I knew him to be the Late Mr. Clifford Smith, who died in Scotland.
I contacted you because after the death of my late client, I was informed by the Bank to search for any member of his extended family (related especially consanguinity), to put up a claim, or who could be so represented as managers or trustees for his deposited funds with them which stands at over £3.8 million pounds. Due to the fact that he died with his immediate family members.
After preliminary efforts of search which came to no avail,i was given an ultimatum to the end of November to look for some one to come for the claim or have the funds liquidated and made un serviceable in accordance with existing laws because it will be assumed that no member of his family is alive. However, it might interest you to know that, after a thorough investigation in the Bank, I found out that some members of the company are currently planning to divert this fund in their selfish interest and only want to use the excuse that since I am not able to look for some one to make the claim, the money should be made unserviceable and that means reverting the fund to the Government while the company retains a percentage of it. After unraveling their plans and professional consideration on my part, I decided to look for some one that is credible and trustworthy with the same last name with my late client knowing that the people of your country are known to be trust worthy people. to apply for this claim due to the fact that I have at my possession some legal documents which are very important and which might be requested by them and which, can only be provided by my chambers/firm since they have since been with us.
I feel and know that you will be able to make this claim successfully because of your last name which is the same as that of my late client's and as a result of this I do not want the Bank to be aware that I contacted you first in order to prevent them from going into much investigations on whom you actually are and that can put the success of this Smith, transaction on the line.
I want you to be rest assured that this is legal with no risk involved, since all the legal documents that gives you the right to make the claim is available. This is a deal I am offering you and I want you to know that it requires only a mature mind to understand all I am saying and I believe you are matured enough which is the reason I am going further.
I am taking my time to explain all these to you now because I want you to see the reasons why my name should not be mentioned any time you are discussing with the members of the Bank and why this Smith, Transaction has to be kept really confidential in order for us to be able to achieve our goals neatly.
NOTE that if they request to know how you came to know that your family member (Ruben) had such an amount of funds with them and who contacted you, which I am not sure they will ask, but in order to be on the safer side, if you are asked, be confident to tell them that the extended family discovered some documents in his archives showing that Mr Ruben Smith,lodged such funds with them and that is why you have been sent by the paternal family to contact the bank. Anyway, further deliberations will be held on this as we proceed.
I want you to know that I have these documents as well as the death certificate of Mr. Ruben Smith to show to you as proof and I will release them to you as soon as I have attained your confidence.
Please bear in mind that you have to be really sure if you are going ahead or not for I do not want to jeopardize the success of this Smith, transaction which means so much to me at the moment. I will wait for your response and please do not forget about the discreet nature of this.I decided to contact you with my personal email as it is a personal transaction and also the nature of the transaction.

Thanks for getting back to me, I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail and I urge you to treat it with seriousness. This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such it is not a hoax mail please. I am Barrister David Alderson,a solicitor at law.
I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr,Ruben hereinafter referred to as 'my client' who worked as an independent diamond merchant in my country and who died in a car crash with his immediate family on the 4th of Oct,2009. Since the death of my client in Oct,2009, I have written several letters to the embassy with an intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail.
More so,I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank in which my client deposited the sum of £3.8.million pounds.
On this note i decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a similar last name (Smith), I was urged to contact you, that I may,with your consent, present you to the "trustee" bank as my late client's surviving family member so as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of my client.
Upon the receipt of your reply,I will send you by E-mail the next step to take.I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this transfer. Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this.
Please send me your phone numbers fax number full names and complete contact address so I can call you to discuss this matter.
