From: Mr John V Watts
Subject: Re: Official Memo

Body:

This notification memo has been sent to you three times without a response from you and this will be the last time and I do hope you receive it.

This is an unconventional way of relaying an important message such as this. Due to the urgency of this issue, I resorted in contacting you via email and I do apologize if it did not meet up with professional ethics.

This inquiry is about an account holder (Name Withheld) who bears same surname with you and the true position of his deposits at ADB Invest Account. This Investor died and has no successor in title over his fund with the bank amounting to over USD$7,000,000.

The essence of this communication with you is to request that you provide us information/comments on any or all of the four issues as regards nominating you to inherit the fund left behind by this client.

1-Are you aware of any relative/relation born on the 2nd of February 1951, who bears your same surname whose last known contact address was Ireland?

2-Are you aware of any investment of considerable value made by such a person at the ADB Bank Group?

3-Can you confirm your willingness to accept this inheritance if you are legally and legitimately appointed.

4-Would you agree to donate part of this inheritance to charity if you are officially approved to stand as the inheritor?

It is pertinent that you inform us ASAP whether or not you are familiar with this personality or and your interest towards the issues mentioned.

You must appreciate that we are constrained from providing you with more detailed information at this point. We will provide you with additional information upon receipt of your response.

Upon your response, I will contact you with more detailed information on the deceased client and the process of nominating you to inherit his wealth.

Your faithful,

Mr John V. Watts

Just got the exact same email today. I googled him as there were loads of little clues in the email that looked suspect; and I came to this web site. He's supposed to be English, the address is incorrectly written, the grammar incorrect and words spelt in the american version. if it was a genuine request, I would expect a more formal/legal letter. Just a shame that gullible people fall for these things

These guys are after you sending them the postage fee of up to $225 by Western union. There is no such a thing as inheritance. It is called advance fee fraud or SCAM419

The letter matches the example posted above. I am assuming this is a scam. A second letter has been received - requesting a disbursement of the inhertance as follows: 70% to be kept by myself 10% to Watts and 20% into charitable causes - of my choice. What ae these guys after??

Your suggestions??
