Nigerian Scam > >: Keep Me Informed

A clear and common scam, maybe a bit better written then most, but still clearly and 100% a true scam. Regardless there are still clear typos and context issues that would scream out to everyone that this email is not written by an attorney.

Please remember people, there is no free money out there, avoid these scams.

My Late client had an account with a bank in UK valued about 4.5million Pounds sterling. Presently the Finance Vault (Bank) management has issued me as the personal attorney to the deceased with a notice to contact the relatives to come up for the claim of the money left behind by the late sister hence it has been a long time their sister died and Consequently after some years if no next of kin come up for the claim the account will be declared sequester and the fund diverted to the Bank Treasury Department as unclaimed inheritance.

I have been unsuccessful in my numerous efforts to search out anyone related to my late client,all has proved abortive and since i have been the personal lawyer to late Juliet spanning for a period of fifteen years, according to my late client, she told me she was raised up from an orphanage home, having been abandoned by her mother at birth.With this regard nowadays, I am urgently in need of a trustworthy individual from your country to present to the bank as the late client distant relative which the inheritance funds will be transferred to without any further Inconveniences hence the reason for contacting you .though the deceased client declared her individuality to be a National of your Country as a result of decision.

Just got my cheque for $500.

Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can make taking paid surveys online...

So I took a video of myself actually getting paid $500 for filling paid surveys to set the record straight.
