Where Mugu's come to LEARN!
Mr. John Maxwell Letters

contents.htm">Contents - List of Scams by Type and by profession.







Analysis: This one is well written and once he got part of my name he figured the rest out. Not bad since the first shorter email came 6 times in one hour, See First Email, This is how a scam like this works.. First they get you interested, then they fill in details. Not hard almost every email addres for a business is on Google or some search engine. Then they convince you that they are going to transfer the money into your bank account and you give them your routing code, and your account. They then take every penny out of your account and run. No way to get it back, YOU GAVE them the access. Thats all it takes.. The right numbers and anyone can get into your bank account. OH and there is also another problem.. in England there is a title for a person who would do this and that title is not on here.. Just the use of the word Mr... and I ain't gonna tell you what it is cause this moron will find the site somehow and fix his mistake.

Hello Redacted,
I received your email and will like you to know that I seek your partnership in having this funds transferred for our mutual benefit. Do not take this transaction for granted. This partnership shall be based on TRUST AND CONFIDENCE.
I am John Max, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Late Engineer Robert Redacted, a national of your country he's known and referred to as my client. I am a Brazilian by birth but a British Citizen as i have lived here for over 25 years. You are qualified by last name to stand as the next of kin/ beneficiary to his funds and assets. The mentioned inheritance funds was meant for a business project which till now was never completed, and the funds totaling about 10,600,000.00GBP (Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand British Pounds) has been with the Security/ Finance Company since his death. After several unsuccessful attempts to trace members of his family, I decided to track anyone with same last name to present as next of kin since there are no known next of kin, hence I contacted you.
In view of the importance and urgency of this business to me, I am writing you to give you more information about this whole DEAL.
I know you may be initially scared and skeptical about this lucrative business offer just from the blues. Do not worry as I mean well for our benefit. One can presume that you may not or may have any biological relationship with the deceased family in question, but for us to consummate this one; I want you to assume this status and act as if you were one. From all investigations and enquiries there was no trace whatsoever of any known living or dead relations of the deceased that could be traced.
The world is so corrupt these days that if we do not get this money ourselves, no body knows what the Government and officials of the will do with it when confiscated. They could employ it into nefarious ventures that will not profit humanity and also to glorify our God. They could use it for terrorism, drug abuse/ pushing, prostitution, and any other destructive vices. You see this is my cardinal point for soliciting your co-operation to actualize this dream. This proposal is genuine and very legal and it is for our mutual benefit. To me, it is a divine coincidence. The business and its transaction will be done in the most legitimate manner.
For your assurance, there is no risk attached whatsoever. By virtue of my profession, I would not have involved myself into vain or slanderous business. I have my esteem profession, age, family name and my immediate family, my integrity and reputation to uphold. I would not have ever contacted you into this business if I knew of any obstacle along the line. I have done my homework thoroughly. I will provide to you all the necessary documents that backs up this claim which will prove you as the next of kin as soon as the business commence and if demanded by the Firm. So do not worry about this side.
You see, I only needed the co-operation and assistance of a willing foreign partner to actualize the dream. I shall be liaising with you on what to do and how we could make this business work and succeed. The transaction shall last for about 7 business days to materialize, depending on your ability to give it your due attention. This money should be shared amicably between us on a 50/50 basis. But remember, it takes the strong hearted to venture into lucrative businesses and at the long run, enjoy the bounties of the risk and uncertainties taken. It will please me so much if you accord this business your esteemed attention because this money could only be transferred on claim by a foreigner. This may be our chance to be financially liberated; therefore I implore you to assist me in actualizing the dream and thereby reap the benefit of a well-planned financial deal.
Please, less I forget, you must understand that this is a FINANCIAL DEAL and at such, it must be kept secret and confidential. I hope you will adhere to this and let it be on oath solely taken between you and me till this business is finalized and the money comes over to you. Ensure to keep this transaction very confidential.
I will proceed to feed your name into the bank database as next of kin to the deceased and get back to you with directions to contact the bank for release of the funds.
Maintain further correspondence with me on this transaction through my private email box, I will direct you on the entire process to get this funds transferred.
I will proceed to feed your name into the records and documents as next of kin to my client and then file officially for transfer of the funds to you in that capacity. Re-confirm to me the following information:
- Your Full Names
- Your Address
- Your Phone and Fax Numbers
- Your Occupation
- Your Marital Status
- Your private email address
Expecting to hear from you soon.
Yours Faithfully,
Mr. John Maxwell
