I am Barrister Kola Awodein, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to late Mr. George Brumley the African Area Director who was a consultant with Shell-development, who unfortunately was involved in the plane crash in Nairobi Kenya Airways Flight 431 in 16,355-foot Lenana Peak on Mount Kenya, Monday July 21 2003 you will read more stories about the crash on visiting this website, http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html and also in this website, where Brumley’s company talked about his death in the Kenya crash. Mr. George Brumley Hailed from Hamilton, Ontario Canada.Since the death of George Brumley, I as his personal attorney have made several inquiries to locate his only surviving relation, without any success.
I came across your name and contact on the course of my personal search for late George Brumley’s relations, so I decided to contact you for this project. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating and securing the wealth left behind in a fixed deposit account by Mr. Brumley, before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by Eco Bank Plc where my client operates an account worth $USD29 Million Dollars. The board of Eco Bank Plc has issued me a notice that after 2 months from now and no next of kin shown up for the claiming of the said funds, the funds will be confiscated and declared unserviceable. Since I and my team have been unsuccessful in locating George Brumley’s relatives for sometime now, it on this note that I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased since you are a foreigner, so that the proceeds of this deposit valued at $USD29 Million Dollars can be released to you for our mutual benefits.
1. Your Full Names
2. Home/ mailing address
3. Phone Numbers
6. Copy of your passport or drivers license I have worked out the modalities for the persecution of this transaction which had meets all necessary requirements in our country and those of international arbitration.
All i require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this business successful. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement which will protect you from any breach of the law. Mr. Brumley was a very good man and it is not wise for me to allow his hard earned wealth to get confiscated by the greedy directors of Eco Bank Plc. Further details await your response by email.
PLEASE, TREAT THIS PROPOSAL AS TOP SECRET.

Hello Mr. Barrister Kola –
Thank you for the very timely email. This news could not have come at a better time for us. I am sorry to hear about Mr. Brumley’s passing. He was a good friend, although we had been out of touch for many years.
As you undoubtedly know, we have been working to build the world’s largest basket-shaped building for more than 20 years. Some time ago, the Longaberger Company, in Newark, Ohio, build a pathetic seven-story building that could hardly be called a basket. This has motivated our company that much more to see our dream realized, even though it’s been 10 or so years since we found out that fateful competitive news.
Our dream is to build a true basket skyscraper, which would be located in either Toledo or Atlanta. This beautiful structure would rise approximately 50 stories from a ground-level plaza that would be tiled to resemble a lovely picnic blanket. We have been having some financing issues (what with the whole Lehman Brothers downfall, the trouble with mezzanine financing, and now the rapid increases in wicker prices), and so, you see, your letter is very much welcomed.
Mr. Brumley’s $29 million would go a long way toward the construction costs, as we have thus far only raised about $2,100.
Thank you for contacting me, and I do promise to keep this all secret. Please let me know the next steps.

Dear Barrister Kola –
Thank you so much! Before we proceed, I have three important questions for you:
1. Will I have to pay sales tax on the $29 million? This would greatly impede the building of the skyscraper.
2. Is it necessary for me to be fluent in the appropriate African language? Unfortunately, I am not currently, although there are courses nearby, I’m sure.
3. Can we legally include Mr. Brumley’s name on the building? Our board is considering calling it the “Brumley Basket Building” but I want to be sure of this technicality.
Please let me know these three answers, and I will get you the information we need.
I got your mail and I would like to say thank you for your readiness and trust you confided in me allow me to inform you that the deceased Bank will require some vital documents and charges for them to release the funds into your designated account.
Yes, we can name the building Brumley Basket Building for the benefit of mankind and again you do not need to be fluent in Africa language all you need is to confirm to me that you are capable of handling this transaction also know that I am going to present you to the bank as the next of kin to late Brumley.
On confirmation of the required identification I will further advise you on what to do and how we are going to proceed with the business. In case on any question, kindly state accordingly so that I can clarify you immediately meanwhile I must let you understand that there is no risk involved in the whole matter as far as you are going to follow my instruction accordingly.

I am so happy to hear this good news.
By means of this email, I do hereby acknowledge, confirm and swear (to our Holy, Holy, Holy Lord on Most High) that I am capable of handling this transaction. I have handled many, many important transactions with “First Federal of Lakewood” bank, an internationally reputable financial house. These generally dealt with many dozens of dollars each time.
Additionally, I have only been late with one bill/payment in the past year. That involved our water bill to the city of Cleveland. As a side project, I was attempting to construct a large fort made out of water balloons on our property. It was part of a “Christmas in July” promotion that our city was sponsoring. I was going for sort of a water balloon igloo vibe, but after having significant structural problems with a dome shape, we had to change to a fort. Things were further compounded when the next door neighbor’s cat, Vittles, was spooked by a Hawaiian shirt-wearing animatronic Santa. As Vittles had not been declawed, I’m sure you can understand that the resulting destruction of the balloons was significant. Well, not to bore you with all of these details, but we had to start all over again, and this was a significant hit on our monthly water bill. We ended up being a few weeks late with our payment.
Do you think this is a problem? I’d hate to have this one mark on my credit report mess up this deal.
Thank you for your clarity on this. I look forward to proceeding as soon as possible if you don’t think this past problem is a deal-breaker.
you are require to send me the following information to enable me prepare an application of claim to the bank on your behalf here.
The requested information bellow:
1 your full name.
2 your address.
3 your occupation.
4 your age.
5 your telephone number.
6 your id card or drivers license.
Upon the receipt of the require information we shall proceed further.
Wonderful! So my water payment issue still allows me to participate? Please let me know the ruling, so I can get you the 6 necessary items.
Send the requested information for us to proceed.
That is just great.

Pls once the bank contact you do let me know so that i can advise you on what to do next.
Good morning Coke –
I received something in the mail just this morning for a Capital One Visa, with “an ultra-low rate of 5.1% interest for the first six months.” I know this is very, very fast, but could this be the bank you are talking about? I find the timing to simply be too much of a coincidence.
Here’s the kicker: I also get discounts on groceries and gasoline, so if this is the case, it is good news, indeed! I will send you a basket of fresh fruit from my grocer as a thank you for your help.
Please let me know at your soonest ability if this is the bank you are talking about.
Did you get my email, below? Perhaps the bank is closed? Away on a bank holiday? Or maybe they have turned down our application.
I am growing worried now. Please advise me on what our next steps should be. I stress-eat Cheetos when I’m nervous, and I’ve cranked through 3 or 4 of those damn bags in the last 36 hours alone.
Let me know!!!
