Prize for the most creative reply

Good Day Wayne WatsonThis is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such. I must solicit your Confidentiality and assure you that I am contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit. I am Scott Bailey, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr. Robert Watson hereinafter referred to as my client who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country. He died in a car crash with his immediate family in East London on the 5th of November 2001.My late client, a former Sub-Comptroller working with Chevron Texaco Oil here in the United Kingdom and had Left behind a deposit of Nine Million Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling only (£9.8million) with a bank. After the death of my client, the finance company contacted me being his attorney to provide his Next of kin who will inherit his fortune and this according to them is their policy in sure circumstances.Since the death of my client, I have written several letters to the embassy with intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail. I had to inform the finance company about my fruitless effort in locating my late client close relative or his next of kin.The board of directors of the company just adopted a resolution and i was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within the next 15 official working days or forfeit the money as an abandoned funds. The company had planned to invoke the abandoned property policy of the company to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given me. Also I have received official letters in the last few days suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws of the institution.However I have reason very professional and I can use a legal means to present a next of kin of my deceased client. This is legally possible and would be done in accordance with the laws of the land. On this note I decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a similar last name, I decided to contact you, that I may, with your consent present you to the "Trustees" as my late client's family member as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of my client.I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you are of the same nationality and you bear a similar last name with my late client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity. I have all vital documents that would confer you the legal right to make this claim and would make them available to you so that the proceeds of this bank account valued at £9.8million can be paid to you before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge amount is lodged.I do sincerely sympathize over the death of my client but think it is unprofitable for his funds to be submitted to the government of this country or some financial institution. My aim is to retrieve these funds and let it be claimed by someone with the deceased family name. For this I seek your assistance since I have been unable to locate the relatives for the past 5year nowI seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name giving you the advantage so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you and then both of us can share the money, 60% to me and 40% to you. I know there might be other persons out there with the same surname as my last client, but after a little check my instinct tells me to contact you. Can I trust you on this? I shall assemble all the necessary documents that will be used to back up your claim.I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this transfer.Like I said, i require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Please get in touch with me by my alternative email esqscottbailey03@hotmail.com for better confidentiality and send to me your telephone and fax numbers to enable us discuss further on this transaction. My contact number is +44-762-417-2575. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you, Thanks for your understanding.Kind Regards.Scott Bailey.+44-762-417-2575.N.BWhen calling you dial your country calling code which I think is 011+my number (+44-762-417-2575. That is (011+44-762-417-2575). You can also confirm the code from your service provider
I was going to ignore it, as is usual, but if anyone has a idea for a reply, I will send it!

I was going to offer him a really good deal on the Harbour bridge!

I have a bit of fun with these shysters.

I was getting about 1 of these Spams a month for about a year, so I did a little bit of research and started to baffle them with BS, oddly they stopped...

My first step was to tell them I was the financial manager for a large "cartel" and did these transactions often.

I asked then for $10000 to fly to Geneva to hire a Swiss lawyer (Swiss lawyers have a reasonably good level of financial protection, better than the US) to setup a private bank account, I would then hire another Swiss lawyer to approach the first lawyer and have that new lawyer setup a anonymous numbered account.

I told the spammers I would then send them the account details and they could forward their millions into that.

I told them I would then hire another Swiss lawyer to create many different offshore accounts in a dozen or so Tax havens.

Once that was complete I would collect all the money into a Russian bank account, setup another dozen or so off-shore accounts and move the money randomly around them for a year.

Finally, in exactly 1 year from this date I would tell them we would meet in the Bahamas and give them the money and keep my share.

Yes I know, I have WAY too much free time on my hands.
