A variation of the Nigerian scam...

 Clever to use my family name though...great "hook"

                                           'Mr Frederick Kohl's Estate'

Dear Kohl,

I am Barrister Alby Peters, a legal practitioner practicing in the state of Lome in Togo.I am the family attorney to (Mr F.Kohl),a national of your country.

Mr F.Kohl died with his family in an auto accident On the 10th of november,2005.I have made several attempts to locate any of Mr Kohl`s relatives,all to no avail.

I have contacted you to claim the estate of Mr F.Kohl valued at US$12.5 million since you bear the same name.

The Governing Body of the Bank has contacted me on this matter and I am  yet to provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the Fund.

Under a clear and  legitimate agreement with you, I shall seek your consent to be presented as the  next of  Kin so that my late Clients' Fund will not be Confiscated by the Bank and pushed into the bank treasury as unclaimed bills.

For the sake of Transparency on this matter, you are free to make immediate contact for further clarification  and explanation on this matter.

I will need you also to reconfirm your full name and contact telephone number to ascertain the fact that I am dealing with the right person.

Upon receipt of your response i will give you the details of this transaction.

For details of this transaction reply to

Note that this claim is legitimate.

I await your prompt response.

Have a Nice day.

Best Regards,
Alby E.Peters (Esq)

Guess what, I got this one two.
Lots of people dying on the same day, same place with the same lawyer. Interesting. Some funeral director has been busy on that day.
