Fake Inheritance From Barrister Clement Khuman

From email address: clemkhuma002@yahoo.com

- email content -



It is my privileged to capture your names from the internet. My name is Barrister Clement Khuman legal practitioner and the personal Attorney to late Mr. Shawkat, a national of your country who died along with his wife and his Two sons in a ghastly motor accident along Port louis-Reduit express in August 13, 2002.

All the occupants in the vehicle lost their lives. I am convinced that it was the grace of God that made me to locate you. my client was a successful and accomplished family man, who made enough fortune before his intimely death. Since then I had made several inquiries through your Embassy to locate any of my clients extended relative but this exercise has proved unsuccessful.

After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives through the Internet, to locate any member of his family not much progress was recorded. My late client was an influential wealthy businessman, an Gold magnet here in South Africa and he left behind a deposit of US$22.5 MILLION (TWENTY TWO MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THUOSAND US DOLLARS). After the death of my client his bankers contacted me, as his Attorney to provide his next of kin who should inherit his fortune.

The board of directors of his bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within 28 working days or forfeit the money to the bank as an abandoned property. The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me.

Despairing at the point of exhaustiveness, fortunately, I came across your name, to my utmost amazement , you are nationals of the same country. Convinced that you may be linked with my late client or that you might provide clue to my search, I therefore,decided to contact you with these facts before me because of the situation now . By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate
family, I am very much aware of my client financial standing and the bank account he operates.

I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client,so that you can be paid the funds left in his bank account, hence I contacted you. I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are at an advantage as nationals from the same country, so that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at US$22.5 MILLION (TWENTY TWO MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THUOSAND US DOLLARS), can be paid to you.

We shall both share the funds. 55% to me and 40% to you, while 5% should be for Expenses or Tax as your Government may require, I shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up our claim. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us to see this deal through.

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.

Please get in touch with me by email to enable us discuss further.

Best Regards
