On behalf of my late client, Mrs. Sarah Chizuko Katayama, this is the second email that I am sending to you, after I was instructed to notify you that you were made heir to the sum of Thirty-three Million British Pound Sterling (33,000,000.00 GBP), from the late Mrs. Sarah Chizuko Katayama, who was known for her rare benevolence and exceptional humanitarian work. Until her death, she was a devout Christian who was dedicated to charity giving.
According to her wish, you are to use this money in support of your activities, helping the poor and needy from all races. With your position as the heir to the funds left by my late client, which you are qualified to receive, do get back to me as urgent as possible, to enable me file the necessary documents for the funds' transfer, as she wished. I need you to reply me immediately after reading this message via my email address - email@example.com
