Banking with the King of Rock-n-Roll

Delivered to my inbox this morning on the 29th anniversary of the passing of Elvis Presley:

Greetings to you,

A meeting was held recently in our bank and I was reminded once again of locating a next of kin to our private banking client Messrs Elvis whose last name I am not disclosing now for the purpose of confidentiality. He died intestate and did not nominate an inheritor or heir to inherit the title of investments made with at our bank. Being his personal account officer all responsibilities on finding an heir to his deposit is usually directed to me and for the last two years all my efforts on finding an heir to late Mr. Elvis is futile and this is my purpose of contacting you knowing that you share the same last name.

Should we work as a team and do the process that will nominate you as the Next-of-Kin since you share the same surname/last name with him, with all the necessary documentation pointing in your direction (tentatively) and the bank release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relative?

Please cc your respond at your earliest convenience to and be sure to include your full name and address, your phone/fax number(s) with the best time to reach you.

Yours Sincerely,

Raymond Morris
STANDARD CHARTERED BANK,
Private Banking Division.
London, United Kingdom

Dear Mr. Morris:

Thank you, thank you very much.


Elvis has left the (bank) building.

Is that a green light for us to go ahead with the transaction?

I'm sure my long-lost Cousin Elvis would have wanted it that way.

Intestate? I thought he was constipated. I guess the rumours of Lisa Marie being the love child of some karate are true.
