    I signed up to aussie school mates last night and this morning i find this in the inbox , sayong someone has tried to track me..

    e-mail says:

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I take the liberty of writing you this very confidential mail. I implore you to give it your maximum attention as the contents are in absolute good faith.

    For avoidance of doubts, my name is Barrister jerry brown, I am a full time practicing lawyer registered with the Togolese Bar Association as well as a Member of African Independent Financial Advisors.

    My purpose of writing you this confidential mail is hinged on the fact that; I was personal attorney to Mr. ROBERT KAYLIE, nationality of your country. Precisely on December 30th, 2003, while returning from Accra Ghana after a weekend holiday at Labadi beach Hotel, my client and members of his family (wife and daughter) died in ghastly motor accident by running into a stationery Trailer without warning sign along the Togo/Ghana Express way.

    After his death with members of his family,due process was followed to alert members of the public and any relation of his through Electronic Media Obituary Announcement both in the local television station here in Togo and Ghana. Also I took personal steps to announce his death through internet advert but yet up till this moment of writing no surviving relation of my said client ever came forward.

    Right now his Bankers has written me requesting me to contact any serving relation of his for the purpose of transferring his estate in the sum of 10.2 million Us Dollars.Due to the pressure from the Bank I decided to present you as the next of kin to my said deceased client and to further ask your hand of co-operation under utmost confidentiality to claim the outstanding sum by presenting you as the Next of Kin of my late client.

    Needless to reassure you that as a Lawyer and personal attorney to my late client, all the necessary information and documents that will sufficiently prove to the officials of the Bank that you are the next of Kin to the deceased shall be obtained legally from the probate section of the High Court.

    I would therefore request you to give this letter serious thought and get back to me urgently.You can also reach me through this email address for more information:[email protected]

    Regards.

    One would think if they wanted be a better scammer they would at least use another email client instead of a hotmail free address. Most likely if you were true lawyer you would in fact have some kind of firm email address and would sign your email Mr. Brown. I do get such a good laugh from emails like this.
