So today I received an email from Harry Wilson who wants to talk to me about his late client Albert Van Bevan. I can only assume Harry looks like one of the following three people, of which we will narrow down as our correspondance continues.
Here is the initial email I received from Harry...
Seems legit! I think we should start replying to Harry what do you guys think? In the meantime I will reach out to him to break the ice...Wilson H (email@example.com)
There is an important issue I want to discuss with you concerning my
late client who bears the same last surname with you Albart Van Bevan.
This is all about inheritance claim worth ($13.850.000.00usd). Contact
me in my private email for more details and
Hopefully we won't be waiting too long to hear from Harry...Hi Harry, I trust this email finds you well.
Thank you for emailing me about your late client Albart Van Bevan, why is he late is he deceased or has he missed transportation to get to your meeting? If you could clarify it would be much appreciated. I missed a bus once to a very important meeting I know how tricky it can be sometimes, hopefully you will give him another chance.
$13.850.000 USD! Wow that is a fantastic sum of money, I hope Abart doesn't spend it all at once! It is important to make interest on it through the bank so he should keep it in there!
I look forward to hearing from you in due course,
All the best,

So unfortunately Harry Wilson, doesn't appear to have great access from his internet cafe as I am yet to hear back from him. However, upon trawling through my Facebook messages under the "other" section (I didn't even know this existed I couldn't believe my luck that I had received a similar message from Barrister David John Adile. Unfortunately this message was unread from 2012! I was adamant his account would no longer work but thought I would test the water anyway and would you believe it, this morning I received a response!! Here's how it went down...
Here's the original Facebook message sent to my personal account in 2012:
I thought it would be best to send a message back from the wealthy aristocrat Lord Farquaad Van Bevan who uses hotmailDear Bevan,
I am contacting you for the claim of my late client funds that was deposited
with the bank here in Lome-Togo. Mr.B. A. Bevan, who was involved in a ghastly
motor accident along Novice express Road with his family. I decided to contact
you as a matter of urgency regarding this issue. I want to present you to the
bank as the living next of kin so that the fund worth $ 17.5 million used,
(Seventeen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars).will be release
Please contact me through this email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for
more details of this transaction.
Barrister David John Adile.
- - - Updated - - -Good afternoon Barrister Adile, Please accept my apologies in the delay it has taken to respond to you I have only just found this email in my junk items for some strange reason!
I am extremely sorry to hear about your late client, I hear the Novice Express Road is rather treacherous at times. I hope your government can make it safer sooner rather than later so that there will not be any further deaths.
I am surprised to hear about the $17.5m USD. I didn't even know I was related to Mr B.A. Bevan. What was his first name?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Lord Farquaad Van Bevan.
Barrister David John Adile has since sent me a very large response:
I can see why his email is still working to this day and never been shut down, he's got no "game" has he lets be honest, he copies and pastes everything. Maybe we can help him become a better person and give him some IT skills. I'm going to try and get him out of his robotic self.Dear Bevan ,
Hereby receipt of your reply, and as you rightly know, I got in touch
with you in this matter based on the fact that you bear the same
surname with my late client, and the same nationality as I wanted to
stay with relatives, without success, and instead, the fund,
confiscated by Finance firm, as I mentioned in my proposal, or be
asserted by some unscrupulous persons.
Please note that everything that I want from you is to stand as next
of kin and beneficiary of the unclaimed property of my deceased
I would like to inform you that the next relationship as stated
inheritance law, not limited to relationships deceased neither she
confessed to the scheme of parental relationships, and this is the
choice of the benefactor for whom he wishes to his will (the
beneficiary), either formally write, or informally by secret
information disclosure beneficiary, his / her business partner,
relationship, relatives, friends or well-wisher, well, so by virtue of
the above, I seek consent to present you as next of kin of the
deceased client, since the presumptive next of kin died along with
It was the finance company where the deposits was made invited me to
their office and instructed me as his lawyer here in order to find and
submit them to his next of kin for the release of his outstanding
fund, the total amount . It is after this I decided to write to you as
a namesake to help me put in a claim to the fund for the production
I intend to offer you 50% of the total funds, while 50% should be for
me sincerely you must immediately send your full details such as your
full name to be submitted as a beneficiary to the Finance firm,
profession, address, telephone and fax numbers, therefore, I intend to
continue in the same submitting to the Finance firm to present you as
the only immediate relatives of the deceased client for the subsequent
release of the deposit to you in accordance with their normal process.
Forward to me as follows:
1. Your full name...........
3. Fax Number................
4. Occupation ...............
5. Age .............
6. Telephone number.....
Above information will help me submit application to the bank on your
name. You can call me on the phone number as listed below for further
instructions. Please call me on my phone number lets discuss more
about this deal.
Mr.David Adile (ESQ).
Hopefully my response will get Barrister David John Adile out of his shell a little..
Barrister David John Adile it is great to hear back from you once more. I feel your previous correspondence was rather mundane considering the opportunity at stake!
I'm amazed to find that Mr B. A. Bevan is also San Marinese, it is very rare to find a fellow relation from the nation of San Marino, although I do no reside in England, but this surely confirms his relationship to me!
As previously mentioned I would like to know more about my fallen relation. What does the B. A. stand for in his name? Why was a man from San Marino traveling down the notorious Novice Express Road in Lome-Togo!
Please help me try and picture this all together for my piece of mind.
I am also astonished and somewhat offended that a Barrister like yourself would request 50% of the potential inheritance when I do not know much about your qualifications!!
How old are you? Where did you study? When did you graduate with your law degree? Did you obtain first class honors? This will go a long way to appeasing your request.
I am currently traveling across Europe on business and will adhere to respond to your reply at the earliest opportunity.
Cordiali Saluti (that's how we say Warm Regards in San Marino)
I am adamant Barrister David John Adile looks like one of the following:
Great stuff, just like reading 419 eater.
This guy is dreadful, let's give him another nudge:
Barrister David John Adile, I hope you are OK and are in good health? I have not heard from you since my previous correspondence.
I am a very busy man, and although this is a slight hindrance to my daily duties I was hoping we could get further in this inquiry sooner rather than later.
And I bet people do pay money and the lad who sends this shit laughs hard... :X
Looks like our friend has replied with a very lengthy email!....
Dear Lord Farquaad Bevan,
I thank you for your interest in my proposal so far, in-spite of any
doubts incurred, which may occur to anyone who receives such offer.
Firstly, I would want us to entrust this transaction in the hands of
the Almighty God for with Him, every concern of our lives meet
solution. I have perfected every arrangement within my power and
ability for the success of this transaction and the rest will be
entrusted to God.
I have contacted you to assist me in claiming this fund out of the
bank's vault before the management will confiscate the fund.
Let me elaborate a bit about the deceased biography
The late Mr. Benny Alison Bevan, was a material procurement contractor
for heavy duty companies. He was a successful businessman here in West
Africa for years. He had a company of his own, was married with only
one son. He had the accident on his way to the northern part of our
country and with him were his wife and son of which they all died in
the accident. He was a big customer to the BCEAO BANK TOGO.
His deposit certificate and the death certificate are presently in my
possession. Actually, I do not know what you will like to know more
about him. Hence, I will give you more details as you may want to know
if you ask me.
I would want you to understand also that in the banking/Financial
trust houses, chances or opportunities like this are common but not
spoken nor heard of, though, very rare. People put their monies in
banks and some of these accounts are either coded or confidentially
operated, Therefore, when such people die what do you think that
happens to these monies when nobody comes for their claims, both
relatives and friends neither a next of kin to claim their monies?
Well, this is one of the numerous avenues good "free" monies are made
within and amongst the bankers as well as people like us who happens
to be opportune to such estates.
I want you to understand that I did not mastermind Mr. Benny Alison
Bevan’s death and I did not operate or managed his account, if there
was something that I could have done personally to have this money
sent to his real relatives if they could be found, independent of the
bank management, believe me, I would have done it.
Normally, when something like this happens in our local banks here, it
is reported to the management. The Management can only wait for about
two years for a next of kin to show up without publishing it or making
it public. Of course, like you know, false claimants must definitely
show up. Therefore, it is not published and the bank only waits for
the real heir to show up as the availability of such funds are
expected to be in the late "customers will" which would be the only
source to identify anybody who is entitled to such estate. So the Bank
gives two years for this, and if no claimant comes forward, then, the
management sends the money to the Debt Re-conversion Department and
the account is closed.
Now the question is, who runs the Debt Re-conversion Department and
who is the Management? The answer is simple. The chairman, managing
director and members of the board of directors. These are individuals
and these monies are shared amongst them and nobody asks questions. As
a matter of fact such issues are not even discussed outside board
meetings. It becomes sealed and cleaned. To explain myself properly, I
am not a board member and of course, I am not part of the Management
and I am not rich either,therefore,if I have this opportunity and
throw it to the wolves, then I must be the "stupidest" the most
"foolish-man" that has ever lived. It was when I met with the Account
Officer that I got this clue. He informed me to go in search of a
foreign partner who can assist us in claiming the funds offshore.
Hence, I contacted you. So, we are the only ones involved in this
transaction except as you are intending to assist us claim the funds
for our mutual disbursement.
Bear in mind that this is not a joke neither is it an email
embarrassment. We have carefully put everything in place and since
this is an opportunity open for anybody, we do not see anything wrong
or "fraudulent" in what we are doing as long as we are not hurting
anybody. I can only tell you that destiny has a role to play in this.
The column for the next of kin to this claim is presently vacant. You
are a human being and you can draw your own judgment from the above
explanations and see to the legality and the necessity for us to go
for this claim. My conscience is clear and I have no genuine reasons
to worry about the dead.
This project remains absolutely confidential. I want us to take it up
in the manner that nobody hears about it, until the funds hit your
I have all the original documents necessary for the claim of this
fund. I should be asking myself, should I confide my entire trust in
you in getting this fund offshore where we shall disburse amicably.
Believing we shall have our own share as soon as you claim this fund.
I believe with these elaborations you will see with me and know where
I am coming from and where we are going.
Let me have the under listed information to enable me authenticate
your name by oath as heir and beneficiary to my late client:

Benny Alison Bevan this guy is too much
Benny Hill morelike!
I responded this morning:
Dear Barrister David John Adile,
Thank you for your reply and I am glad that you entrust this transaction in the hands of the Almighty God.
Who do you believe to be your Almighty God? There are so many religions on this earth!
Davey-Boy, may I call you this? it can be your nickname as we are now friends, I will help you on this quest!
I feel sad for Mr Benny Alison Bevan, if only we could have met in different circumstances! But I feel he would be angered if the government held on to his hard earned monies, and thus I believe it is morally acceptable to help you as he would have wanted good in this world surely!!
Could you do something for me my friend Davey-Boy? after all I am such a busy man traveling Europe.
Could you do me the honour of emailing me a copy of Mr Benny Alison Bevan's deposit and death certificates which I know are in your possession to confirm his wealth?
Also could you send me a picture of yourself so I know this is you and not someone trying to trick me? Maybe holding a sign with a code word..
Hmm, I know have the sign say "CM0102 FAN", I will then know this is a genuine request.
My good friend Stannis Baratheon is traveling with me at this present time and he thinks it is a fantastic opportunity. Stannis has had a hard time recently and I hope the Almighty God can give him some luck, some people believe he is the one true King of the San Marinese.
I am very excited about this matter at hand Davey-Boy and hopefully we can do Mr Benny Alison Bevan proud!!
I am 71yrs of age my good friend, I was born into a wealthy family as Lord of the Manor, and thus have no true occupation. However, as mentioned I am a very busy man and the small business I do is helping my good friend Stannis Baratheon who works in the shoe industry.
As mentioned I travel constantly so don't have a steady address for mailing purposes so email is the best form.
However, one of my properties is
I have a very good feeling about this Davey-Boy, I feel I can trust you. I hope you can trust me?
I look forward to you adhering to my requests so we can get this transaction concluded quickly and efficiently.
I eagerly await Barrister David John Adile's reply
Haha this is brilliant!!
Davey-Boy has been in touch....
- - - Updated - - -Dear Lord Farquaad,
I thank you very much for your response and interest to my proposal. I
have heard what you said and I will be glad to make this claim with
you for our mutual disbursement. Please, all I need from you is to
follow strictly my advice and instructions to enable the bank transfer
this money into your new or empty account. I accept your nickname
Davey-Boy, and would love to call you Papa Farquaad ok!
I want you to understand that this is inheritance fund and I do not
think there is any law in any part of this world that is against
inheritance of any kind irrespective of the amount, country, family
name, language, sex, religion e.t.c, hence one has the right to choose
his or her next of kin from anywhere to inherit his or her financial
or material assets.
It is important you know also that before this money will be
transferred into your bank account, all the necessary legal documents
to authenticate the source and origin of this money into your account
will be fully documented in your name and issued to your bank and you
by the bank here to avoid any questions from your Government or any
other financial authority concerned. Therefore, I agree to work with
you, but the conditions you set do not show you trust me. To be
candid, lawyers do not release their official documents to not well
known persons just for asking. Against this principle, I consider you
as a senior person, so will try to meet your request if that is the
only thing that will make you assist me.
Meanwhile, I want you to call me for us to talk over some important
things before I respond to your request.
Waiting for your call soon..
Direct Line +228 9027 1128.
I accept your nickname
Laughed my ass off
Togo number is +228
Ask him if he knows Adebayor!
Or ask him to call you on a sex line number
We know he's from Togo, didn't you hear Mr Benny Alison Bevan died on the notorious Novice Express Road in North Lome!!
Must remember this for "Thread of the Year".
Come on Davey-Boy....
Dear Davey-Boy, my good friend I trust this email finds you well and the Almighty God is looking down on you favorably.
As you know I am a busy man, and I want to conclude this deal as soon as possible as I'm sure you would. So let's make haste and get too it!
My good friend Stannis Baratheon's business partner Daenerys Targaryen who supplies Stannis with faux dragon leather for his shoes has told me she too went through a similar process but was allowed to see copies of the deposit and death certificates. So if you could please send me the following as previously asked we can conclude this mutually beneficial transaction swiftly.
1. Do me the honour of emailing me a copy of Mr Benny Alison Bevan's deposit and death certificates which I know are in your possession to confirm his wealth.
2. Send me a picture of yourself so I know this is you and not someone trying to trick me holding a sign with a code word "CM0102 FAN".
I too consider you a senior person Davey-Boy, and know this is a fantastic opportunity for us both, I just need to ease my friend Stannis' mind with the above so he too believes me.
I am currently flying to Geneva so will buy a mobile phone once there. We are not allowed to use phones on airplanes, but I can access the interweb on the Pear iMac laptop from 30,000 feet.
I look forward to you adhering to my polite requests before I land.
