A 60 – 40 Split


Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Ebrahim Abdul Hamid, a senior staff with National Bank of Dubai Fujerah branch, I have urgent business proposition to discus with you.
A British Oil consultant and contractor with the Kruger Gold Company, Mr. Raymond Beck made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at USD$3,000,000.00 (Three Million United State Dollars) in my branch.
Upon maturity of this deposit, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Kruger Gold Company that Mr. Raymond Beck died in a plane crash along with his wife in a plain crash along with his wife in Egypt Air Flight 990, 1999 air crash. (For more information about this crash and person you can contact this website; <
Since we got this information about his death and on further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Raymond Beck did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.
This sum of USD$3,000,000.00 (Three Million United States Dollars) is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one has ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of United Arab Emirates, at the expiration of 10(TEN) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the (U.A.E) Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Raymond Beck so that the fruits of this old man’s labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials.
This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin.
We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/ administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction. Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
I am waiting for your urgent response.

Mr. Ebrahim Hamid.
Please respons with this email;

Wow. How many clues did you spot?

  2. I get these all the time, and have never bothered to read past the first sentence in a single one. Did you really have to?

    If so, I have urgent business proposition to discus with you.

    • Sir or Madam,
      Ha! These things have been around for so long that Spam filters actually catch them now (I’m fairly certain I first saw this exact model in 2000).

      I (occasionally) post these examples for several reasons, but mainly because I find them hilarious.
