    Dear xxxxxxx,

    I am Barrister James Amu , a solicitor at law. I
    am the personal attorney to Richard.W.xxxxxx, a
    national of your country, who used to work with
    Ashland Oil Petroleum Development Company in Nigeria.
    Just ealier this year, my client, his wife and their
    4 children were involved in the recent TSUNAMI
    FLOOD DISASTER while on vacation . All members of the
    family unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I
    have made several enquiries to your embassy here to
    locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has
    also proved unsuccessful.
    I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to
    locat any member of his family hence I contacted you.
    I have contacted you to assist in recovering the fund
    valued at US$21.5 million left behind by my client
    before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable
    by the Bank where this huge amount were deposited.
    The said Bank has issued me a notice recently to
    provide the next of kin or have the account
    confisicated within the next twenty one official
    working days.Since I have been unsuccesfull in
    locating the relatives, hence I seek your consent to
    present you as the next of kin to the deceased since
    you have the same names resemblance, so that the
    proceeds of this account can be paid to you.
    Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we
    shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities
    for transfer.I have all necessary information and
    legal documents needed to back you up for claim.
    All I require from you is your honest cooperation to
    enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee
    that this will be executed under legitimate
    arrangement that will protect you from any breach of
    the law.
    Please send your response to me
    Best regards,
    Barr. James Amu

    This might be a Hoax but who knows these days.
    The following is a e-mail i got this AM,i did a search on my own using Google and found no DR:Philip my last name. i wonder if our other Viewers have ever got mail like this as well.what gave me a clue is that he sent it to himself from another e-mail account and mentioned the $17,000,000.00. i don't know to many Lawyers that would let you know such info.
    i hope helped out another viewer(s) who may have got something just like this.

    Here is the letter i got with my reply to this Individual.

    Default Barrister James Mark, Email Fraud

    I just received this in my email today. I thought about sparing everyone the same text, but I reconsidered and thought it best to copy and paste directly from my email client (sans my last name) so to verify I received the same:
    _____________________________________

    Subject: ATTENTION:MYLASTNAME

    DEAR MYLASTNAME,

    Sequel to your non response of our earlier letter to you on behalf of the Trustees and Executors to the Will of our late client Dr PHILLIP MYLASTNAME.I am Barrister James Mark, a solicitor at law, and the personal attorney to the deceased.

    I wish to notify you that you will be listed as a beneficiary to the total sum of $17,000,000.00(17 Million United state
    Dollars) in the codicil and last testament of the deceased.
    Which until his death, My Late client had the hope of transferring to his country as soon as he is on leave.

    Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now.I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased since you have the same last name as my late client, so that the proceeds of this deposit be SENT to your own benefit. All Legal documents to aid your claim of this fund and to prove your relationship with the deceased will be arranged for.Your help will be appreciated with 30% of the total sum.All that I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through.
    However, if you do agree to this term, please include your phone and fax number in your response for better communication.
    please act fast and contact me via my private email address:
    jamesmark.0001@yahoo.com.cn

    Regards,

    James mark

    ________________________________

    I contacted him and he sent me legal documents to sign. He then sent me a check for U.S.$17,000,000 with a legal note attached stating that I had to sign US$5,100,000 over to him, so I agreed and followed through. Now I am filthy rich and I hope to help others in the same manner.

    Then I woke up from my fantasy and decided to post this message to verify that this is a scam like all the others posted. Notice that I received the message today, and could not have done all the things I mentioned in the previous paragraph.

    But people do it, and it's sad. However, the more of us that post our findings, the easier it becomes for people with curiosity to fine this forum and help themselves to save themselves from a lt of grief.
