Good Day,

This is a personal official email directed to you and me request that it be treated as such.

I am Barrister Tom Hickman, A solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to my late 
Client Randolf (Surname Withheld) who worked as an independent oil magnate in my Country and died 
in a car crash with his immediate family on the 4th of Oct, 1998.

Since the death of my client in Oct, 1998, I have written several Letters to the embassy with 
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 US$13.8 million 

On this note I decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a similar last 
name, 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.

I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you bear a similar last name with my client making 
it a lot easier for you to put up a Claim in that capacity. I propose that 45% of the net sum will 
accrue to you at the conclusion of this deal in so far as I do not incur further expenses.

Therefore, to facilitate the immediate transfer of this fund, you need, First to contact me via 
email signifying your interest and as soon as I obtain your confidence; I will immediately appraise 
you with the complete details as well as fax you the documents, with which you are to proceed and I 
shall direct on how to put up an application to the bank.

Upon the receipt of your reply, I will call, fax or 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 Full Names and direct phone number while responding to this mail.

Best Regards,
Tom Hickman.

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.
