Kelvin Majekodunmi



One out of five!

Dear Sir,

I am Mr. Kelvin Majekodunmi; I work with the Bank of Industry Ltd as an account officer in the Treasury/Credit Control Unit. I was the accounting officer of a national of your country, who died with his wife and their only son in a motor accident.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the assets and Capital valued at £12,540,000.00 Million pounds (Twelve Million, Five Hundred and Forty Thousand Pounds Only) left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the share holders of this Bank, so that they can share his funds as dividends amongst themselves.

The Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next fourteen official working days.
Because as at the time of his demise I was his accounting officer, but have since been promoted to the position of Treasury/Credit Control Unit, ever since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for sometime now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss modalities for transfer.

As soon as I receive an acknowledgment of your acceptance, I will furnish you with the necessary modalities of the transaction. I assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free, and as soon as we succeed in getting this funds to your account, The money will be shared on a 50, 50 basis............... I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

I am waiting to hear from you soon.

Best regards,

Kelvin Majekodunmi

2. If the e-mail mentions a well known e-mail address such as from,, etc., then why not forward the offending e-mail to, etc. Hopefully, they'll remove the e-mail address, which will stop people being sucked in.
