Dear Ed Dempster,
 
I am Barrister Harry Nyemuego (ESQ), a solicitor at law, personal attorney to Mr Morgan Dempster, a national of your country,who worked with Shell Development Company in Republic of Togo. Here in after shall be referred to as my client.On the 18th of oct. 2001, my client ,his wife and their only daugther unfortunately lost there lives in a ghastly motor accident and since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my client extended relatives,this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name to locate any of his relatives hence I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at US$10.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Unitrust Security Company in Lome/Togo where this huge amount was deposited in a trunk box under the coverage of family valuables. The said security company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have this box confiscated within the next twenty one official working days as they don't know the content of the box.

Since I have been unsuccessfully in locating the relatives for over 2years now,I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased,so that the proceedings of this box 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 claim.

All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through this email box only for more details harrynyemuego@yahoo.ca
 
Thanks and God bless
Harry Nyemuego(ESQ)

Planning is an unnatural process - it is much more fun to do something.  The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. [Sir John Harvey-Jones]

Apparently many people do fall for it. Just think of folk you know who have only recently or rarely use the Internet and so are not savvy to these scams.
There's a bit of an analysis here http://telecaster.lboro.ac.uk/moneyscam.html

I suppose the most effective traps for humans are those based around the seven deadly sins. Good link, Geoff - thanks for that. afro
