Good day to you.I redacted the name in order to not give the scammer any publicity. We have all received emails like this, and any sensible person recognizes it as fake. In fact my understanding is that scams like this are intentionally written in this floridly bogus style so as not to accidentally entrap any sophisticated computer users, their targets being only the totally naive internet users and those with mental impairments.
My name is [redacted], a renowned Togo based lawyer. I am writing in connection to your late relative who died along with his wife and only Son in an auto accident.

Yours faithfully, [redacted].
As the son of an elderly mother who had advanced dementia, it annoys me that this type of material continues to exist. I understand that much of it arises overseas in places beyond the jurisdiction of the American court system, but I can't believe that no mechanism exists to shut it down or punish the malefactors.
