'My Good Friend,
My name is Mr. John Darden, and I work as an accountant in a bank:I feel quite
safe dealing with you in this important business. Though, this medium (Internet)
has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still
remains the fastest medium of communication.
However, this correspondence is unofficial and private, and it should be treated
as such. At first I will like to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk
and trouble free to both parties. I contacted you to work together with me in
claiming my late client estate. Unfortunately he died without a registered next
of kin and as such the funds now have an open beneficiary status. You could be
made the beneficiary as you Share the same lastname with him.
This sameness in your last names has officially transferred the beneficiary
right to you, as no other person from his family knows anything about this fund
with our bank.
If you are interested in working with me, please get back to me as quickly as
possible so that I can give you the details of what we are to do.
Thanks in anticipation for your co-operation
Mr. John Darden'
I am actually the only person in this world of 6 billion people with my surname, so he picked the wrong guy. Also, note how the actual reason for the letter comes in COMPLETELY RANDOMLY.
