Dear XXXXX XXXXX,Notice how I colored the text brown like crap? I'm ever so clever. The phrases "All I require is your honest cooperation" and "if this business proposition offends your moral ethics" just kills me. I'm less offended than I am insulted. Then again, there are a steady stream of suckers who respond to propositions like this.
It may surprise you recieving this letter from me, since there was no previous correspondance between us. My name is Barr. Lai Tuck Yew a Malaysian national and personal Attorney to Late Mr Martins XXXXX, who was hereinafter called my client.
My purpose of contacting you is for you to help secure the funds left behind by my late client, to avoid it being confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank.
Where this fund valued ($US 3,600,000.00) Three Million Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars deposited by my client before his death.
This Bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin or the account will be declared unserviceable and the fund diverted to the Bank treasury, So far all my efforts to get a hold of someone related to this man has proved abortive. Hence, I have contacted you.
I am actually asking for your consent to present you to the Bank as the Next of Kin/beneficiary of my late client's fund, since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to your account,then we can share the fund on a mutually agreed, based on percentage.
All the legal documentations to back up your claim as my client's Next of Kin I shall provide them. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us achieve this transaction.
The intended transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any infraction of the law. However, if this business proposition offends your moral ethics, do accept my sincere apology. If on the contrary you wish to achieve this goal with me kindly get back to me with your interest via this email address for further explanation.
Barr. Lai Tuck Yew
So this lawyer's name is Lai Tuck Yew?
Hmmm. First name Lai, the letter T from the middle name and the last name of Yew. Put it all together and it sounds just like:
Lie to youNot too cute.
