I recently found this thread after digging up information on names from what I had suspected, was a scam, and found your forum. I too, have apparently been asked to fulfil a next of kin scam, and while I did let them carry on for a bit to see their intentions, I had always known it was false. Here's a dump of everything so that others may find it too!
Though I did not receive an email from "Ibrahim Abdulla" as the OP did, I did receive on from a Mr. Walter Lironi which matches the text. His profile does seem to be legitimate on LinkedIn, but as to how these things tend to go, it may be well crafted to simply appear that way, even though it is falsified. Anyway...Removed information educating scammers (BW)
Thanks for responding to my proposal, I am freely giving you full details of this transaction bearing in mind that you will not betray me. The name of the bank I work for is COMMERCIAL BANK OF DUBAI. and presently I am the Chief Transformation Officer, in Commercial Bank of Dubai. This transaction requires utmost trust and dedication from your side, since you will be receiving the funds as the Next of Kin/ Heir to Michael and shall be in control of the money, until I come over for my share.

Mr. Walter Lironi
How are you today? I hope you are fine, I write to inform you that I have done all the necessary changes in the account file in my bank as I informed you. Your names now appear in my bank system as the Heir and rightful Inheritor to the account of Late Michael. The next step now is for you to contact the Attorney here in U. A. E who shall represent you in all matters that concerns the claim. The Attorney I want us to use in this claim is good and he is a registered Attorney with the Central Bank of U. A. E, because only registered Attorneys are allowed to handle Central Bank matters in connection with Inheritance claims of this nature and foreign transfers. He is a good Attorney, and specializes in Civil cases, such like this.
You have to contact him and request for his legal services in the claim of your relative company's account with the COMMERCIAL BANK OF DUBAI. You must not mention my name to him, meaning that he must not know my involvement in this transaction. Just tell him that you got his contact details from staff of the COMMERCIAL BANK OF DUBAI and you learnt that he is a registered attorney with the Central Bank of U. A. E, so you wish to know if he can represent you in a Next of Kin claim with COMMERCIAL BANK OF DUBAI. Once he gets back to you, you shall inform me, so I can send you the information you shall pass to him.
