"Hello marty mars
You received the following message from : emmanuelkona (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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 Kouevi Emmanuel Kona, I was personal attorney to late engineer Joseph Waikato Ngaha , nationality of your country who died in ghastly motor accident by running into a stationery Trailer without warning sign on December 26 , 2006.
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.
Right now his Bankers has written me requesting me to contact any of his relation 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 at my private email email@example.com
A couple of really irritating aspects to this one.
It came to me via maori.org (I don't blame maori.org)
They have worked out that maori are from here and are using fake maori names.
Whew - 10.2 Million US dollars - but I don't think i'll be responding to kona from Togo. I hope you don't either.
