The Age Of Innocence

Another Next-of-Kin scam – he wants me to pose as next of kin to steal money from the bank, but refuses to admit that what he proposes is illegal. Even after I said I would help him, ONLY if he was straight with me, he insists that what he said is legal. I get so many of these; I can afford to cut one off early for the principle of it! If he would have been honest, I would have baited him longer, so it’s his loss, not mine… By the way, don’t you just love the name of this idiot? My emails are in blue, his/hers are in black, my comments in red. Happy reading!

I have received ultimatum of only 14 days(Fourteen) working days as the deceased attorney to present the deceased heir or have the account closed as unclaimed bill, another question is when this account is closed as unclaimed bill what happens to the money, the answer is that, 70% of the total sum goes into government treasury account at the apex government Bank, while 30% of this funds is shared amongst the Governing Board of the Bank.

You will agree with that leaving this fund to disappear just like a think wind is senseless when I have all the facilities required to claim this fund through your help.You are to stand as the next of kin to the deceased since you have same surname with him, that's all I need because I have all documents and information required to make this transaction happened.

Waiting for your immediate reply.

Barrister Innocentia Attanasso.

I asked you two times to level with me and tell the truth and you still want to lie to me and act like what you are proposing is legal? So you are saying that me and you lying and pretending that I am this man, who I don’t know, that I am his next-of-kin is legal and risk free?

Is that legal in your country? To lie and pretend that I am somebody I’m not to steal money that doesn’t belong to me?

All I asked you was to be straight and up front with me, but you continued to lie to me. I would have helped you get this money, but not now – because you can’t be trusted.


Dear Payne,

Am sorry for not getting back to you all this while i traveled but am back now, well you see i search you name from the internet so i saw you as the next of kin to my client that is why i contacted you to help me get this money but as you are saying that you are not a relative to my late client, as it is now will you allow the bank to block this money while you and i need it and point of correct we are not going to steal, i want us to use this money for a nice project instead of allowing the money to be use for nothing that make no sence that is why i will like you to beleive and trust me in this transaction and bring out you heart and mind for us to get this money out of the bank.

Barrister Innocentia Attanasso.

If you understood my emails correctly, you would know that I understood fully that I am not this man’s relative and what you were proposing to me is highly illegal. But you kept lying to me by saying there is no risk and what we would be doing is legal, in which you know it is not. I might have helped you, but if you are going to lie to me, then I can’t trust you, so I said never mind.


Even now, in this email you say that we are not stealing when that is exactly what we are doing. Therefore, if you can’t be honest with me, then I don’t want to work with you in this transaction.

Dear Payne,

Let us start this so that we will not loose this money, i love your statment but you see we cant afford to loose this just comply lets get start fast just contact the bank and update me on there respond to you what you wrote to them.

Barrister Innocentia Attanasso.

Did you even read my last email? You can read, right? Read my last email again…


Ok tell me if you are not going tto help me out just go straith to point so that iw ill look for another person who is willing and able to help.

Are you stupid or just incompetent? I told you I wasn’t interested in working with someone who could not be straight with me and tell me the truth from the beginning and you are the moron who keeps lying and emailing me. What does it take to make you go away? You are a liar and freaking idiot – NOW GO AWAY!
