Catching up on my correspondence

From: Mr Philip Agogo


Hello Dear,


I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a large sum of

money from a dormant account. Though I know that a transaction of this

magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring

you that all will be well at the end of the day



I discovered an abandoned sum of US$16,00, 000.00 (Sixteen Million

Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign Customers late

George Brumley. This very account has been dormant for some years now.

After my investigations, I discovered that the account owner has died

since July 2003 with all his family members in a plane crash.


Since his death, nobody has come forward to lay claims to this money and

recently my bank issued a notice that the account will be declared

unserviceable and the funds called to the government treasury since no

relative of the deceased customer came up.


In order to avert this negative action, I now seek your permission to

have you stand as a next of kin so that funds can be released in your

favor as the next of kin.


Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual

business endeavor by furnishing me with the following if you are willing

to work with me Actually.


1. Your full name

2. Postal address

3. Profession

4. Telephone and fax numbers


This information will enable me work on the Deceased account file so as

to indicate you as his next of kin after which you will formally apply

for the release of the funds as the next of kin to the Deceased customer

to this bank I work at. We are going to share the total sum on final

conclusion of this project on a 50-50 equal.


If you are truly disposed and capable of handling this, reach me





Mr Philip Agogo


Dear Mr. A-go-go,

It is so good to hear that all will be well at the end of the day. I have often thought the same thing!

It is very ironic that you have contacted me regarding this opportunity as I have often felt that I must be related to someone with a dormant account filled with large sums of money! Sheerest optimism, I know, but still.... one hopes....

Unfortunately, as opposed to being "disposed", I am actually very "indisposed." The recent postings on my blog should assure you of this. And I don't think I want to go into my "capability."

Allow me to wish you the best of luck finding someone who is both disposed and capable. While the challenge is significant, given the large sum of money you are willing to share, I have no doubt you will succeed.



PS~ Perhaps a little work on your use of zeros in the sum of 16 million wouldn't be amiss.
