In the said letter of change of beneficiary/ownership, representatives of messes Jacobs' enterprises states that you are dead and as such your fund should be paid to him as the next of kin to you.
Because of the elaborate global scam, we decided to contact you for confirmation.

Mrs. Rose Edward
Now this one that seems to hail from a different country
From Miss sandra williams
My name is Miss Sandra Williams. I hail from Monrovia, Liberia, I and my younger brother Jeff are the only surviving children of our late parents Mr. and Mrs. Richard williams. Our father was a highly reputable and successful Gold dealer before he was killed during the war in my country.
We re-located to Cote d'Ivoire under political asylum as refugees from Liberia, our mother died on the 12th of Feb 2009. Before my mother died, she gave me the documents of the fund my late father deposited in a security company here in Abidjan. She told me that the box content's the sum of US $18.5m (Eighteen million five hundred thousand USD) and was deposited as Family Gold for security reasons. We need your assistance to claim this deposit out from the security company. This fund was deposited in a security company here in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire and my name was written and signed as the next of kin to this deposit.
We want you to assist us in retrieving this deposit out from the security company as the beneficiary of the deposit, and also assist us to invest these fund in any country of your choice under your care.
Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help us with fear of God?
2. Can we completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your account?
Please, Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible,Once the fund transfers to you we will come over to your country on investment negotiation.
Thank you so much and God bless.
Sincerely, Sandra Williams.
I can laugh and brush these aside but of course the sad thing is that so many desperate people have been taken in and provided all the asked for information
