From: Mark P. Gerrard, Esq. (For Trustees)
Managing Partner (Gerrard & Shanley)



Notification of Bequest.


On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the
estate of Late Engr.Mark Halligan,I
once again try to notify you as my earlier letter
was returned undelivered.I
hereby attempt to reach you again by this same
email address on the WILL.
I wish to notify you that late Engr. Mark
Halligan made you a beneficiary
to his will. He left the sum of Three Million,
One Hundred Thousand Dollars
(US$3,100.000.00) to you in the codicil and last
testament to his will.

This may sound strange and unbelievable to you,
but it is real and true.Being
a widely travelled man, he must have been in
contact with you in the past
or simply you were nominated to him by one of his
numerous friends abroad
who wished you good. Engr. Mark Halligan until
his death was a former managing
director and pioneer staff of a giant
construction company (JULIUS BERGER).He
was a very dedicated Christian who loved to give
out. His great
philanthropy earned him numerous awards during
his life time. Late Engr.Mark
Halligan died on the 9th day of February 2004 at
the age of 82 years,and
his WILL is now ready for execution.According to
him this money is to support
your humanitarian activities and to help the poor
and the needy.

Please If I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor
to get back to me as soon
as possible by email to enable me conclude
my job. You should forward along your current
telephone number, including
your current mailing address.

I hope to hear from you in no distant time.

Yours in His service,

Mark P. Gerrard, Esq.

i recon its a harvester of people emails
all the best.mark

It's a variation of an advance fee fraud. You won't be able to "collect" until you pay various "legal" fees. Ignore it.

True:
Some guy rang me up the other day about a transformer.
He said I'm a friend of Alistairs.
I said your not mate, he hasn't got any.

Silence on the other end of the phone ........

I'm surprised the guy on the phone didn't say:

"I'm not your mate, my mate is female" http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif

I stopped today, the wrecker stolen from my friend was broke down on the side of the road. The wrecker was here, much use, very valuable to me to move the machinery me and friend purchased at auctions.

I stopped the car, started getting out. Then thought, at the least I am going to break a hand. I have not done my two finger pushups in years and know my hands are soft. I called the owner of the wrecker, told him on his answering service where it is and pulled the car back in drive.

Am I getting old? Soft? Scared? or just smarter?

I consider myself Alistairs friend (along with several others here). I have not cleaned out a spare bedroom for him to move into yet thou.

One of the secretaries at work was careless and allowed her PC to be infested with viri. One of them harvested the company email list. Now I get that same email, or a variation of it, at least 5x per day. I also get spam for things like:

Cheap Cialis, Viagra, etc (but not spelled correctly)
DEAR SIR: BUSINESS PROPOSITION (like you got)
Live teenage nude nurses in bondage

It's just another annoying fact of life, I suppose.

Take a moment to forward that email to the FBI Scam buro on the web. They might actually nail someone if it's in this country.

Mine is a much better deal;

Dear Friend,

I write this august letter in confidence, believing that it will reach you in high spirit and I believe you will maintain the level of confidence and trust matters of this nature requires. Though, I know that this proposal may make you apprehensive and worried, but I assure you that all will be well at the end.Before proceeding, I wish to introduce myself. I am Mr Robert Monbela, Deputy General Manager, (Credit Controls)with a reputable bank in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) which i will later disclose more information about.

The Proposal:
An American Citizen, Late Engr. Mark Larry, a Petrochemical Engineer died in an autocrash with his wife and two children in Balumbola,DRC in May 2000. He operated a domiciliary account with us and had a closing balance as at the end of September 2000 amounting to $20,500,000.00 ( Twenty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only).Valueable efforts have been made by the Bank to get in touch with any of late Mark Larrys relation as beneficiary to his estates without success.

Consequently, the chairman and the board of Directors are planning to declare the fund Unclaimed and then forfeited into the governments account because of the banks inability to locate a relation or next of kin. In other to avert this negative development, I now seek your permission to have you stand as next of kin to the estate of late Engr. Mark Larry, so that the fund $20,500,000.00 will be released and paid into your account as the beneficiarys next of kin. I will help to arrange all documents and proves to enable us get this fund out.

I have secured from the probate registry an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiary and more so, I am assuring you that this transaction is risk free. Once the fund is moved to your nominated account, you will be entitled to 30%. Your share stays while the rest be for me and some people I will settle here. You will be entitled to substantial part from my percentage, in trust for investment.

As soon as I receive your acceptance in principle, I will furnish you with the necessary modalities for commencement.Finally, I am relying in my confidence in you, having opened up to you, if however you are not interested,please feel free to destroy this information.

Yours Faithfully,
Robert Monbela.
