Hope you receive this message!!!And I hope you receive my answer!!! I am not sure whether to write back to your Yahoo Hong Kong address above or the AOL address, below...
On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Engr.Jьrge Krьgger.Wow... I am certain I would remember a name like that.
I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter were returned undelivered.So you wrote to the same e-mail address again? I guess second time's a charm...
I wish to notify you that late Engr. Jьrge Krьgger made you a beneficiary to his WILL. He left the sum of Thirty Million, One Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD$30,100.000.00) to you in the Codicil and last testament to his WILL.I have a strong inclination to regard this as good news. However, I am a little confused by your use of double decimal points in the above. I will reserve my excitement pending further clarification. Upon receipt of a properly placed comma, I will resume elation.
This may sound strange and unbelievable to you, but it is real and true.Well, it does... but your reassurance using the words "real" and "true" has a settling effect on any dubiousness on my part.
Being a widely traveled man, he must have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were nominated to him by one of his numerous friends abroad who wished you good.You're probably right. Being a thinly traveled man, myself (I remain at home in the dark, day after day with my books and my cats) I may have actually met him if he managed to drop by my flat. Anyone who wishes me good is a friend of mine, regardless of their grammar.
Engr. Jьrge Krьgger until his death was a member of the Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical Engineers.The Helicopter Society? I was with them when they merged with the Dirigible Society! We have a lot in common!
Please if I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job.I promise if you reach me, you will be the first to know. I look forward to you reaching me.
You are advice to contact me with my personal email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Await your prompt response.And you are advice to get a thesaurus and a decent handle on the English language before you try this stuff on any American again.
