Scam Number Three: Leave Us ALONE!

Dear Jaycee Smock

I am Barrister Barrister Victor Mandus(Esq),currently representing a big oil servicing company in my country Lome-Togo in West Africa.

My late client, Peter Smock, who expatriate in my country,with his wife and their one child lost their lives in World trade center bombing on the 11th of sep. 2001. Before his death, my deceased client deposited two boxes containing $18,000,000.00 United Sates Dollars with a Security Company in Lome-Togo.

Here He accumulated this money from an onshore engineering award. I decided to search for any foreigner that has the same surname with my late client in repatriating the consignment since I found it unsuccessful to find a true relative to him. I want you to quickly file in for claim before the security company will declare the consignment unserviceable.

The said money was packed in cash in two boxes, the boxes was not opened, and he declared it as containing just family valuables of classified documents and he paid a high price for the special diplomatic service of deposit here (a category of deposit in which a customers consignment is never opened for inspection).

As you have the same surname with the decease, this is why I am writing to you so that I will assist you claim this consignment. I will prepare every documentation that will assist your claim. The consignment will be released to you within 7 working days after you have filed in for claims. I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible,Please you also include your telephone and fax number for easy communication.
