Subject: Can I Trust You?
I am Barrister Matthew Baker, an attorney in London. A client of mine by the
name of Alh. Slamet Hassan died in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, together with his
wife and family, as a result of the deadly tsunami.
Please log on to the following Web sites for more about the tsunami:
The main reason I’m contacting you is to ask that you assist me in ensuring
that the funds lodged by my late client with a financial institution
not get declared unclaimed because he died with his wife and children.
The financial institution has issued me a notice to contact the next of
else the funds will be confiscated. My proposition to you is to seek your
consent to present you as the next of kin and beneficiary of my late
that the proceeds of the funds can be paid to you. Then we can share the
on the basis of mutually agreed-to percentages.
All legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next of kin will be
provided for you. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us to
this transaction through.
The transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will
protect you from any breach of the law. If this business proposition offends
your moral values, do accept my apology. Otherwise, please contact me at once
to indicate your interest.
If you are willing to assist me in this venture, I will establish verbal
communication with you by telephone so as to give you a much better
the situation. If you are willing to assist me in this venture,Please
