Attn: To Whom It May Concern .
This letter is not intended to cause any embarrassment in whatever form, rather it is intended to contact
your esteemed self, following the knowledge of your high repute and trustworthiness.
Firstly, I must solicit your confidentiality. I know that a proposal of this magnitude will make anyone
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that it is made in good faith and will be of mutual
benefit. I am Barrister Robert Stewart, the personal attorney to deceased,herein after referred to as my
client, a national of Haiti, who until his death in the recent disaster, He was a major crude oil contractor
with the federal government of Nigeria.
My client entire family recently were involved in a fatal motor accident, which unfortunately claimed their
lives, along the Sagamu express road, on there way to the airport, sparing none of the occupants of the
vehicle. I have since then made several enquiries to the Haiti Embassy, in a bid to locate any relation of
my client, and these efforts of mine have not been productive. I'm contacting you to assist me in securing
the money and property left behind by my client before they are declared as unclaimed and unserviceable
by the security company where they have been lodged for safekeeping. I am particularly interested in
securing the funds lodged with Global Security Company in Nigeria , totaling Thirty two, five Million,
United States Dollar (USD32.5M). This is because the said Global Security Company has issued a
notice to me here in t he United Kingdom, unequivocally instructing me to produce the Next of
Kin/Beneficiary to the said account within the next ten official working days, or have the account
confiscated by the FGN, (Federal Government of Nigeria).
Considering my lack of success in my bid to locate his relatives for a while now, I solicit your consent to
enable me produce you as! The Next of Kin to my deceased client, as long as you both bear the same
last name. The funds will then be transferred to you as the beneficiary and shared according to a
proposed sharing pattern /ratio of 70:30 i.e. 70% for me and 30% for you. I will provide all the
necessary legally obtained documents to back up any claim we make regarding this process, and will just
require your understanding and cooperation to enable us achieve success within a legitimate arrangement,
eliminating any liability resulting from any breach of the prevale nt laws.
Your urgent response will be highly appreciated; you can as well forward to me your Telephone number
immediately for more discussion, you could also reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
I haven't seen one of these in a long time! I always loved how the so-called Nigerian banker secured my name from the "Nigerian Ministry of Commerce" or something similar. My high school reunion committee couldn't find me in my own home town, but this guy tells me I'm in a Nigerian business directory?
Ah, the memories...
Yea I got one of those a year or so ago...it is a scam
Haven't received one of those things for a long time. I think the last one I received was about a Nigerian princess who needed me to "secure her funds." Of course, I decided to look up Nigerian princesses and found no one by the name they told me. Yay for me for knowing to do my research on something before I take a risk!
I get this junk in my email all the time. Just delete it. Scam Scam Scam
I have decided to take spam seriously, so i'm going to ask each spam mail sender question" You wanna know how i got these scars".
scam...if anybody in Haiti was worth 32.5 million dollars, Haiti wouldn't be the poorest nation in the World...delete...delete...delete.
You Must Respond and have some fun with this monkey!
Firstly advise him that you are also a lawyer and you practice in London. You would be happy to meet with him face to face to conclude any such confidential matters as this request.
However, you have noticed that neither the writer nor the mentioned party at Yahoo; appear to be licenced members of the bar in UK or Nigeria. Is there an explanation for this?
Therefore, as this request does not appear to be bone fide, you are only prepared to continue in the deal, if he varifies his authenticity and provides HIS personal details by fax.
You would be surprised how many of these guys actually provide their personal details when you deal with them this way.
My spam settings usually grab em/delete em so i don't get the pleasure of reading those emails offering me $14,000,000.00 to simply help a friend, oh, and sending him $3000 to simply process the transaction.
I thought he moved to London. I have a lot of money waiting for me in the UK.
I was afraid to look I thought it was another bill.......
I haven’t seen a Nigerian scam email for ages, I had started to believe that every rich Nigerian had met some tragic end in a car or airplane accident. Obviously there are still one or two left.

I got an automated message saying I needed to provide more information to Google. The caller ID read "S Engine." I don't know if this was a legitimate request or a phishing scam. Anyone else?

If you wrote a hub and it only received 19 hits in a week would you delete it?

Have you received any spam comments on Hubpages?I've been on HP for a long time and this morning was the first that I ever got a spam message to one of my hubs. I denied her comment and deleted her forever, but nonetheless, it was still disturbing. The commenter tried to direct me to another site...

Why would anyone delete a comment on their hub?If I deleted a comment on one of my hubs, I would figure I am not good at dealing with people who might disagree with me. People can agree or disagree, it's a free world. If the comment was mean or nasty, well I'm not the one looking bad,...
