Hey guys just got this email this morning, This is a 419 right?
My name is Mr. Jerry Charles, a Banker with one of the leading banks here in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire West Africa; I am the personal accounts manager to Mr. Brian R. Barnes, who used to be a contractor with an oil servicing company based here in Cote d’Ivoire.
My client, his wife, and their three children were involved in the ill fated Kenya Airways crash on the coasts of Abidjan in January 2000 in which all passengers on board died. Since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives but have been unsuccessful. I decided to trace his last name over the internet, to see if I could locate any members of his family hence I contacted you.
Of particular interest is this large deposit with our bank here, where the deceased has an account valued at about ($15 million US dollars) They have issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or the bank will declare the account unserviceable
And thereby send the funds to the government treasury.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over last 5 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account valued at can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under all legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
If you can handle this with me, reach me by sending the following informations now through this email account:
1. Your Name
2. Postal Address
3. Date of Birth
4. Telephone and fax numbers
5. Profession with position
Thanking you for your anticipated cooperation.
