I have made several inquiry to locate any of my client extended relatives, this has been proved unsuccessful to my effort to locate my late client relatives. After several of my attempts is unsuccessful , I decided to contact you, to stand as my deceased client relatives,I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at US$3,245.000.00 (Three Million Two Hundred And Forty Five Thousand United States Dollars) left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Security Company in Lome/Togo my residing nationality country by birth, where this huge amount was deposited in a Consignment Luggage, under the coverage of family valuables, The said Security Company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have this Consignment Luggage confiscated within the next seven (7) working official days as they don't know the content of the Consignment Luggage, that it is money that is in the Consignment Luggage.


Since i have been unsuccessfully in locating the relatives of my late client, I seek your attention to present you as the next of kin deceased of my late client, so that the proceedings of his Consignment Luggage can be transfer to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfers as I have every necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for the claim.


You are related with my late client or not, all I need is your urgent respond so that we can both achieve this aim together undue the advantage of the trust I have bestowed on you before contacting you. Legal information you need mostly to present to the Security Company as the next of kin to my late client, is with me in my Chambers.



All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction come through, I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, I don't want third party with us, this should be secret between me and you, if we are fast, we will not spend less than 7 working official days.

HINT: Search for "John Koffi" on Google and take a peek at the first result...

They're sent out all the time using dictionary based mailing lists. Take a look at Scambaiting and the stuff Shiver MeTimbers puts them through, it's amazing.
