James Calwell, 201 West Main Street Post Office Box 194 Lincolnton, UK 28092 Phone: 44-7735-467 Dear,sir/madam I crave your indulgence as I contact you in such a surprising manner and I want you to bear in mind that this is not a hoax but I respectfully insist you read this email carefully as I am optimistic it will open door for unimaginable financial reward for both of us. I am Mr.James Calwell, I'm the personal Accountant and a very good friend to late EngrTaylor ,a foreigner, who used to be an Oil Merchandise here in London. On The 21st of April 2005,my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along 119 Whispering Way Vulcan, Alberta LONDON T2L 2B0. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives.Since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of my client's extended relatives and this has been unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his name over the Internet to locate any member of his family or any close name to his, hence I contacted you, I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank, where this huge amount US$5.500 million were lodged. The Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next-of kin / Relative or have the fund confiscated within the next 21 Banking days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 year now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin/Relative of the decease since you have the same last name with him so that this US$5.500 million can be transferred into your account and then you and I will share this fund in the ratio of 50% FOR YOU AND 50% FOR ME for our individual roles in the transaction. All I require is your honest co-operation and confidentiality to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.Since you are ready and interested to work with me sincerely and honestly, I advise you to re-confirm to me as the Accountant to the decease, I will invariably and inevitably become your adviser and will feed you with all the necessary information you will need to proceed on. My dear, it is my expectation and believe that with this you will be absolutely satisfied and assured that you are on safe ground. I am quite sure that we are going to work out together to your satisfaction. Also,it is through your phone,or email that is the best means of the Bank getting across to you.Thank you for your anticipated co-operation and assistance while unequivocally assuring you of my genuineness. IF YOU ADHERE STRICTLY TO MY INSTRUCTIONS, THIS DEAL WILL BE OVER IN FOURTEEN (14) WORKING DAYS.PLEASE IN YOUR REPLY DO SEND ME THIS INFORMATION AS STATED ABOVE: 1) YOUR FULL NAME AND ADDRESS: 2) OFFICE ADDRESS (IF DIFFERENT FROM 2 ABOVE): 3) TEL/MOBILE NUMBER (PRIVATE): 4) MARITAL STATUS: 5) AGE: 6) OCCUPATION: 7)PRIVATE EMAIL HAVE A GREAT DAY WITH YOUR FAMILY.
