The sender was "Mr Rapheal Don" <>, although it may have been spoofed.


My name is Mr Rapheal Don, I am the credit manager of a Finance Bank here in united kingdom. I am 
contacting you of a business transfer, of a huge sum of money from a deceased account. Though I 
know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am 
assuring you that everything has been taken care off, and all will be well if you are really honest 
with me.
I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.PROPOSITION; I am the account 
officer of a foreigner named Carolyn Clemetson and her husband David Clemetson who died in an air 
crash along with his wife on the January 31 in an Alaska airline Flight 261 with other passengers 
on board.
Since his death, none of his next-of-kin are alive to make claims for this money as his heir, 
because they all died in the same accident himself and his wife (May their soul rest in peace). We 
cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the 
deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. 
Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased, 
as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the funds (US$38m,600,000,00) to be 
released in your favor as the beneficiary's next of kin Because after four years the money will be 
called back to the bank treasury as unclaimed bills and the money shared amongst the directors of 
the bank.
so it is on this note i decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of 
kin/beneficiary to this funds rather than allow the bank directors to share this money amongst 
themselves at the end of the year. It may interest you to know that we have secured from the 
probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries.Please acknowledge receipt 
of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavor by furnishing me with the following 
information if you are interested.
1.A Beneficiary name?.In order for me to prepare the document for transfer of the funds in your 
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers.For our personal contact and mutual trust in each other.I shall 
be compensating you with 30% of the fund on final conclusion of this project for your assistance 
and 5% of it will also be used to settle all our individual expensis to make this transaction a 
success, while the balance 65% shall be for me for investment purposes.
Because I intend to retire after the conclusion of this transaction. If this proposal is acceptable 
by you, please endeavor to contact me immediately. Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have 
bestowed in you,
Regards and God bless you!
Mr Rapheal Don.
