Dear reader, I make no promises about how much longer I will be here. It seems by this time next week I could be lazing by the pool at my private villa, with nary a care in the world. You see, I received good news by e-mail this morning ...
GREETINGS.How remarkable - and exciting - to find that I had a distant relative with the surname HoppoBumpo.
We wish to notify you again that you were listed as a heir to the total sum of Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand British pounds in the codicil and last testament of the deceased. Name now withheld since this is our second letter to you.
We contacted you because you bear the surname identity and therefore can present you as the heir to the inheritance. We therefore reckoned that you could receive these funds as you are qualified by your name identity. All the legal papers will be processed in your acceptance.
In your acceptance of this deal, we request that you kindly forward to us your letter of acceptance; your current telephone and fax numbers and a forwarding address to enable us file necessary documents at our high court probate division for the release of this sum of money. Please contact me via my private email so that we can get this done immediately.
John McGowan Jr.
