      Top of the day to you [my email name],

      We want to acknowledge the receipt of your email in this chamber and also want you to know that you have absolute right to reject this WILL as much as you have the right to accept it. If you wish to turn it down then let me know so I can send you a Will Rejection Form to fill and revert back to this office. I am not going to impose it on you but just doing my job here.

      Late Engr. Robert Adler was born in Vienna, Austria in 1913 where he was educated. During the war, he immigrated to the US, where he got a job working in the Research division of Zenith Electronics Corporation working on television technology. Late Engr. Robert Adler was a dedicated Christian who loved to give out. His great philanthropy gesture earned him numerous awards during his life time. Late Engr. Robert Adler was born in Vienna - Austria on December 4, 1913 and died on February 15, 2007 at the ripe age of 93, and his WILL is now ready for execution. He left the sum of Twenty Million, five hundred Thousand Dollars (US$20, 500,000.00) to you in the Codicil and last testament to his WILL. According to him this money is to support your humanitarian service and to help the poor and the needy in our society. Robert Adler must have known that you will put the money to good use for the less privileged of which he was aware that you can achieve, that is why he selected you. Also, understand that I don't know you neither have I met you before, but my contacting you is based on the recommendation by my late client - Engr. Robert Adler. He was a world traveller for both business and pleasure, he was fluent in German, English and French and survived by his only wife Ingrid Adler, age 90.

      Be further informed that these funds will not be released to you without some proper identification. I have never met you before like I said and to be able to carry out our duties effectively as sole executors of the WILL of Engr. Robert Adler, We must be convinced that you are who the testament says you are. And please re-confirm to us through the above stated fax or via email your full contact details to include;

      Your Full Names:
      Your Full Address:
      Telephone and Fax Numbers(if any):

    4. ...cont'd
      And if you have moved to a new address prior to 2007, then indicate both the new and old one for my verification) with what I have in my file. Any difference or discrepancies in the information provided by you will mean that I am contacting the wrong person and I will stop all communication with you out rightly. Your information would be taken to the Probate Division of the International Court of Justice for verification. After the confirmation, the Probate Division would now release your letter of administration for claims to these bequest/funds. This document as well as the Certificate of Deposit issued by the Deposit Bank to Engr. Robert Adler when the funds were deposited by him will then be released to you, this will give you the legal backing to receiving these inheritance funds.

      We sincerely hope that the above requirement be sent to us sooner than later for us to proceed with the documentation. And note that we cannot send any document to you until we are fully convinced that we have the true beneficiary. Also, note that we have a period of Ten (10) court sitting days to conclude this so I can move on to the next beneficiary on the WILL of my late client - Engr. Robert Adler.

      Yours in Service,
      Clifford Chance ESQ.
      I let Clifford know that I would need to forward the email to my attorney. I also stated that if this were valid, I would have been contacted via certified mail, not email.

  7. This was my reply:

    I too, need to know if you are contacting the correct person, and/or you are who you profess to be. What is the name of the street you have, if any, on file for me during 2007. I am certain you will not answer me, because there is no such file. If there were, you would have notified me via certified mail, not by email. Nevertheless, before providing you with any of my information, I will need to direct this to my attorney. However, before doing so, I will need to know how much it will cost me to claim this inheritance? Will it be the same amount you wanted to charge Rebecca [July 13, 2013] "So far, I think I will be able to carte for the balance US $4500.00 so I want you to please offset the balance US $1500.00."

  8. My name is Mary, I live in Tenn. The same man contacted me on July 22, 2014 claiming to be a attorney in London, England about a Mr. Robert Adler, and that their was the sum of money in the amount of 20.5 million dollars and is asking for a amount of 900 dollars to execute a will on the behalf of a Mr. Adler. I looked at the information that was sent to me and notice a few things wrong, he said that the wife of Mr. Adler was Kathleen, then the next e-mail was that the wife's name was Ingrid. I found out a few more things about this so called attorney, he sent a picture of a drivers lic. and a supposed document of a paper saying that he was an attorney, his address was 10 upper bank street London, England, E14 5JJ, Telephone number + 44-871-974-9198, and the fax number is +44 709 284 7266, from the Barristers' Chambers. Everyone that is reading this e-mail please let other people know about this person.

    to me

    Thanks for your response, here’s the reason why i emailed you. I don’t know about the U.S or all other countries. But right here in the UK, once a deceased doesn’t have a next of kin to his inheritance, any member of his family who can be identified with the authentic documents to his claims can have his inheritance released to him or her with the help of his personal attorney.

    Like in this case, my late client Mr Anderson Majumder never had a next of kin to his inheritance because he was an orphan and he has the sum of £980,000.00 fixed in a finance company out here in the UK. The above sum is equivalent to $1,531,000.00 (USD). I really don’t know how you feel about this, but I want you to know there’s no risk involved as long as I have all the legal documents to facilitate the release of the said claims.

    This is how we should get started if you are willing, I will prepare you a letter of introduction which you will need to email to the finance company in order to make your intentions known. This letter will be coming along side, the official email address of the finance company. So, you will need to contact them and what ever requirement they needs you to provide, I will have it all sorted out, send them to you so you can have them forwarded to the finance company for confirmation.

    I need you to know this is for real despite the fact that i can’t convince you enough just with these words alone, this is not illegal as long as we can present to the finance company the authentic documents to facilitate the release of the said claims.

    So at this point, if you wish to get along I will provide you with the necessary steps required, but on the contrary i would respect your interest if you decide to opt out.

    If we do succeed, i will be having 40% and you will be having 60% of the above stated sum. Here’s my number +447045786545, you can ring me at any time. Thank you
