My name is Attorney Phillip Butt a British citizen based in England, I am the Personal Attorney to late Mr. Morris Thompson an American citizen who served as a Commissioner of the Bureau of Indian Affairs from 1973 to 1976 in the United States and a businessman before his death. He died while returning from vacation with his wife and only daughter in an air crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which was a scheduled international passenger flight on January 31, 2000 from Lic. Gustavo D?az Ordaz International Airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle, Washington, with an intermediate stop at San Francisco International Airport in San Francisco California
 
Before then, Mr. Morris Thompson an old business man made a fixed deposit, worth the sum of Ј12,000,000.00USD (12 MILLION BRITISH POUNDS STERLING) with LIOYDS BANK TSB LONDON BRANCH (LBTL) through the Wesbane Federal Credit Union? and upon maturity in the year 2008 several notice was sent to reach any of family members, but there where no response up till date and no one has been able to identify or be reached as a relative to late Mr. Morris Thompson who die with his wife Thelma and only daughter Sheryl who is the only next of kin to his estate.
 
One of the reason why I contacted you is, according to the present law by the end of this year 2015, being his personal attorney, if I was not able to provide his next of kin and beneficiary of this fund this worth the sum of Ј12,000.000.00usd plus the accrued interest for this period of 15 years, the fund will be reverted to the federal government treasury account.
 
Against this backdrop, I needed a foreigner to assist me in getting this fund out from the government account because due to bad leaders/government this fund will not be utilized but will be diverted into personal account of famous and top political officers in the country rather than using it for proper investment that will promote economic growth and development in the country or rather for charity works.
 
So please I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to my late client Mr. Thompson so that you will be able to receive these funds for both of us. WHAT IS TO BE DONE?
 
I want you to know that this is a legal transaction as I have had all the process outlined for the progress of this transaction. As his barrister, I will prepare the necessary documents that will back up the claim as the next of kin to Mr. Morris Thompson and the most important thing needed is truth and trust for both of us to enable us achieve our goal.
