An Email Phishing Scam from SOLICITOR JOHN BRANSON


Dear Sir,

I have picked up the trust and courage to write you this letter with divine confidence that you are a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important and confidential transaction which I have for you, believing also that you will never let me down either now or in the future. I was in Dubai on a seminar and I got your information from a trade consultant here in Dubai, though I did not disclose the purpose of my seeking for a foreign partner to him.

Unfortunately, I had to leave Dubai due to urgent appointment back home; this was the reason why I decided to write you this letter immediately I arrived home to my country. My name is John Branson Solicitor at Law and the personal Attorney/Sole Executor to the late Mr. Randolph Marriott, hereinafter referred to as my client; an industrialist, who worked as an Oil and Gas Merchant in my
country and passed away. There is an account opened in one of the banks in the United Kingdom by my client in 2010 and no family member knows about this account or anything concerning it.

In 2013, Mr. Randolph Marriott summoned me to his office to commence his WILL process, that was when his health condition became worse. He eventually died few months ago, leaving the WILL uncompleted. The family does not know about his personal deposit of GBP19.7 Million (Nineteen Million Seven Hundred Thousand pound Sterling) as it is not listed on the WILL, and all the family focus, is in his Oil/Gas business and other banks where he made some deposit. I want to present you as his trustee/business partner who according to him, should for further  inherit/investment the sum of  GBP19.7 Million (Ninteen Million Seven Hundred Thousand Pound Sterling) which he secretly deposited in one of the banks in the United Kingdom so that both of us can share the fund once transferred into your account. I want us to do this before presenting the WILL to his family. You shall be entitled to 40% of the total sum, while I will take 50% while 10% is for expenses  . All necessary precautions have been taken to ensure 100% risk free situation on the side of both parties.

I will secure the vital documents that will make you the beneficiary of the fund to enable us claim it from the bank where the fund is deposited. The WILL is with me and no member of his family has not seen the WILL yet and the bank where the fund is deposited is not known to them.

The question is, can we work together?

Kindly get back to me via my Email me (Solicitor John Branson):  for further
discussion on this if you are interested.

Respectfully Yours,
Solicitor John Branson
Attorney at Law
