Richard White jr Esq

Can I confide in you?

Richard White.jr

Good day,

This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such. I am Barrister Richard White Jr, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Dr. Brian, hereinafter referred to as 'my client' who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country and who died in a car crash with his immediate family in 2007.

I have written several letters to the embassy with intent to locate any members of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail. Moreover, I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank in which my client deposited the sum of $18.5 Million United States Dollars.

On this note I decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a similar last name, I was urged to contact you, that I may, with your consent, present you to the "trustee" bank as my late client's surviving family member so 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 bear a similar last name with my client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity.

I propose that 50% of the net sum will accrue to you at the conclusion of this deal in so far as I do not incure further expenses. Therefore, to facilitate the immediate transfer of this fund, you need, first to contact me via email signifying your interest and as soon as I obtain your confidence, I will immediately appraise you with the complete details as well as fax you the documents, with which you are to proceed and i shall direct on how to put up an application to the bank.

However, you will have to assent to an express agreement which I will forward to you in order to bind us in this transaction. Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send you by fax or E-mail the next step to take. 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.

Best regards,

Richard White.jr Esq

I have just received a very similar request but using a different name (Monwabisi Zunani whose client was Daniel Ballard). Much of the text is the same. The interesting thing is that the request was received by post, complete with a South African stamp, which means that the scammer is serious to the extent of investing a stamp, an envelope and a piece of paper in each attempt. To make that worthwhile, he must get a proportion of people who are silly enough to reply, and then spend money in some way to process the alleged payment.
