We wish to notify you again that you were listed as a beneficiary in the
intent of the deceased .Please provide your contact details while replying
to enable us process the release of the Inheritance in your name Full
details will be sent in our next email to you.
intent of the deceased
Who died? If someone close to you passed away, you would have probably known about it.
If you were listed in someone's will, they should have known your name by now. Why do they need your contact details if they already made contact? You see, they need the victim to reply, with at least a name, so that they can make the scam look more legitimate when they reply to the victim's response.
So we replied to Mr Heffner and this is the reply we got (we replaced the name of the investigator with Anonymous Nobody. Take note that the scammer cleverly used the last name of the investigator, in order to convince the victim that the so-called deceased had the same last name as the victim. As we mentioned before, this is only done to give the scam a more legitimate appearance)
Thank you for your email concerning the inheritance of mutual benefit. We have contacted you hoping that you will be able to handle this Transaction on our behalf. The details will be given on your response. I would want you to reconfirm the following information to enable us prepare the necessary documents that will enable you make claims to the Inheritance without any problem. I will call you once I receive your response.
Names in Full:
The total sum is 4,600,000.00 GBP (Four million Six hundred thousand british pounds) which is equivalent to $7,182,000.(Seven Million One Hundred and Eighty Two Thousand United States Dollars Only)
Our late client's name was Mr. Frank R. Nobody and did not leave any record of any of his relatives. His last Will gives us the power to nominate a beneficiary for this sum by codicil. So we have contacted you because you bear the same surname as the testator and will be easier to present you rather than loose this amount to the authorities without any claim. We will do all the paper work here on your behalf.
I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of my messages and other forms of communications private and also to kindly respect the integrity of the information you came by as a result of this transaction. I send you this mail not without a measure of conscience as to what is involved in this transaction, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that Success and Wealth never come on a platter o$f gold. This is one truth I have learned from my private law experience and my clients too. Do not betray my confidence reposed in you.
I wish to inform you that all contacts between us MUST be restricted to this email account and my direct telephone number for now. Once I get a favorable response from you, a simple draft of such an application will be sent to you. All you need do then is fill out the application and send it directly to the bank in which the fund is deposited. I shall provide you with the necessary contact information of the bank.Once we get Approvals at the High Court Probate Division for the release of this sum of money.
I await your prompt correspondence.
