A Promising Proposition (part 1)

I thought I would share an interesting email recently received. I really think that my luck may have eventually changed.


Goodday for today,bearing in mind the nature of the content of this letter coming from a person without any referral, I apologize for any inconvenience, but please read and objectively consider if we can work this together.

I am Razali Nizam, an attorney at law. A deceased client of mine who died as a result of high blood pressure (H.B.P) on the 30th November 2006, because he lost his wife and the only daughter in the 2004 tsunamis natural disaster while on  holiday in Aceh, Indonesia.

I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank when this deposit valued at $15.5million dollars is lodged. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the fund will be transferred into the federal government reserve.

My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary to this fund that was deposited in a bank here in my country by my late client,Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. All legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see the transaction through.

This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. If this business proposition offends your moral values, do accept my apology. I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinary confidential, whatever your decision, while I await your prompt response. Please contact me at once to indicate your interest. I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible,this transaction will be treated private with absolute confidentiality and sincerity.

I look forward to your quick reply.

Best Regards

Barr Razali Nizam.

I have to say that I was a little concerned that I wasn’t addressed by name and wondered if maybe I wasn’t the next-of-kin but living in London is expensive and $15.5million dollars would come in handy so I replied:

Hello Razali,

Thank you for your email.

Please do not trouble yourself with concern of causing inconvenience as the opportunity you are offering is very appealing. I am unsure why you think it may offend my moral values but I assure you it does not.

Recently I have been concerned about my blood pressure so the gentlemen in question could quite probably be a relative. I have not been to the doctor as yet but, as it may run in the family, I feel I should get it checked out.

Can I ask if the money is in US dollars? This is a considerable amount of money and I would be more than happy for you to take your fair share, if it hadn’t been for you bringing this to my attention I would have possibly not known about the windfall.

Please let me know what I can do to aid a speedy resolution.

Kindest regards,

To be continued…

  1. Reblogged this on say no to clowns and commented:
    And for something a little different…if you’re interested in some dry commentary along a particular bus route in London, (of course you are), as well as not bus route related material, check this out. (Er this post is not bus related, but this series of events will truly grip you. 😁)

  2. The 43 bus brings back some memories Vanessa. London Bridge Station was part of one of my first patrol beats as a young fresh faced police officer – 1983-1987 to be exact. Call me old fashioned, but I think Razali may be a naughty man.
