Paul Kagame would certainly not be happy if he knew that his government was being spooft. Kagame is dispassionate when there are, or are supposed to be, such excesses after the devastating war in Rwanda. It is apparently his email address from which the email was sent. We have therefore forwarded the link from the article to Kigali.
We also lack understanding in this context.
Michele Bradly does not exist. The name NatWest is often used for such tricks. The basic concept of these scams has been known for a long time. Car accident, dead persons and a supposed banker who means well for everyone in this world.
None of this is true.
Therefore: Do not reply to these sociopaths, do not send any documents, do not send any money and please move the mail to the digital waste bin.
Is this your corporate or private email address?
A day later came this:
Thank you for your response.I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you and benefit both of us. My name is Michele Brady. I am a British citizen currently working with NatWest Bank (Dept of Investment Banking Services) here in England. I have been working here for 15 years, and I have a good working record with my bank. With due respect, I would request that you keep the contents of this mail private. Kindly respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this email. I contacted you independently and no one is aware of this communication. As a matter of fact, it was roughly 11 years ago, being a personal accountant to late Engr.Ian Media, a foreign contractor who has a financial portfolio of 9,545,500 (Nine million, Five hundred and Forty-five thousand, five hundred Great British Pounds) with indefinite interest in my bank. My late client was a chemical consultant contractor with Royal Dutch until his death in a fatal car accident while in France on sabbatical with his entire family. The accident, unfortunately, took the lives of the family members consisting of himself, his wife, and two kids in the summer of 2009. May their souls rest in perfect peace. He banked with us here at NatWest Bank and the money in his account has still not been claimed by anybody as there was no living will in place when he died. Since the death of my client, my bank and I have made several inquiries to his embassy in order to locate any of his extended family members or relatives, but this has proven unsuccessful.
I came to know about you in my search for a person who shares the same last name as my late client. I employed the services of social professional network search solely for this purpose because I feel it would not have been the last wishes of my late client for his whole life work to be transferred to a government (Escheat) he had always complained of their unfavorable public monetary policies, taxes and so on while he was alive. My bank has issued me several notices to provide the next of kin or the account risk been es cheat within the next 10 official working days. The last notice for the claim came to my desk last week. I am contacting you to assist me in repatriating the funds left behind before they are declared unserviced by my bank. I hereby seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of my late client since you share and bear the same last name. As such, the proceeds of the account can be paid to you as soon as you contact my bank and apply for the funds to be released to you as the next of kin. If we can be of one accord, I see no reason why we would not succeed. We both have to act swiftly on this matter in order to beat the deadline es cheat date.
I would have gone ahead to ask the funds to be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit, but on the other hand, you as a neutral personality would easily pass as the beneficiary with the rights to claim, I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you in a few days. I will simply inform our bank of the final closing of the file relating to the customer and instruct them to release the deposit to you; with these two things: all is done. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from breaching UK laws. I will attach my international Passport ID in my next mail for authenticity, so we have equal ground to trust each other. If you are interested in my proposal, I will send you more information, directing you on the further procedure of how we can claim the money in the account successfully. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences might be, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold, this is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients; do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, I shall have the pleasure of meeting you, after this task has been completed. The content of this mail should be treated with the utmost confidentiality and a quick response from you will be highly appreciated. However, if you are not interested in this proposal, please accept my apologies for sending you the message then kindly delete it, I promised that you will never hear from me.
My proposal: I am prepared to place you in a position whereby an instruction is given to officially release the deposit to you as the closest surviving associate, and all etiquette shall be done in accordance with the rule of banking law, I certainly can guarantee you that, by the common law, the power of bequeathing is coeval with the first rudiments of the law, and this power has been extended to all. There is no ruling which prevents inheritance from being so exhausted by legacies as to render it unworthy of the heir’s acceptance; basically, all persons of sound mind are competent to bequeath and devise real and personal estate, excepting infants, with all this I would say we have the clear advantage to carry out a smooth and perfect operation whereby the paperwork shall be coordinated in such a way that your status as a sole beneficiary is confirmed. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half and nothing more. That is, I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you; afterward, we share the proceeds in two equal parts.
Awaiting your response to this email for your cooperation.
