Regards, Mr. Isaac Francis...

Ahh yes, the latest spam scam to hit my email box:


I sincerely write to seek your co-operation and trusts to enable me carry out an urgent business Opportunity in my department. My name is Mr. Isaac Francis and I was the CONTRACT AGENT officer to Late Engr James also a national of your country, who died along with his wife and two kids in the Asia Earth Quake Disaster.

My client was a successful and an accomplished family man, who works with a multinational Oil firm here in Africa, He was sent to Asia (Sri Lanka) for a Special Assignment for his Company where he died. He left in his domiciliary account the total sum of Four Million and Five hundred thousand, United States Dollars only {$4,500,000.00USD}.Since then I had made several inquiries through your Embassy to locate any of my clients extended relative but this exercise has proved unsuccessful.

After several unsuccessful attempts, After the sudden death of my client, and for the reason that there has not been a next of kin to my late client, the bank has decided to forfeit the money and declare as an abandoned property as there is no next of kin who should inherit his funds. The board of Directors of his bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within 28 working days or forfeit the money to the bank as an abandoned property.

The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me. I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client, so that you can be paid the funds left in his bank account.

I therefore seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at $4.5 Million Dollars can be paid to you. You shall have a reasonable percentage for being part of this transaction. We shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up our claim. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.

Get back to me as soon as possible.

Mr. Isaac Francis
