BENATT ZINN CHAMBERS 39-41 Parker Street London WC2B 5PQ Email: email@example.com Ref: 8U771 -1112-2010 Attn: Sir/ Madam Before I proceed, I must first apologize for this unsolicited letter to you. I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, but you will realize the need for my action. My name is Benatt Zinn of Benatt Zinn chambers, London, UK. Actually, I got your contact information from your country data directory (South Africa) on my recent visit to your country, while searching for a last name similar to my late client a South African; therapist at a Budapest center for children with motor disabilities. She died along with her son on the Afriqiyah Airways Airbus A330 crashed on landing at Tripoli airport after a flight from Johannesburg. Before her death, she deposited the sum of £12.5M with a bank here in London, England. The bank has mandated me to present any family heir/inheritor for claim before the fund gets confiscated as an unclaimed fund. So I decided to search for any of my late client's relative which has been very difficult for me, as she did not declare any other person, address, partner or relatives in the official paper works of her deposit except her late son. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a South African to stand as the next of kin to late Dr. Rita, since you share the same last name. With my position as her lawyer, I will now place your name as the next of kin to my late client. I will prepare every relevant document that will assist your claims, and facilitate the release of the fund. Note that this transaction is risk free. There is no atom of risk in connection to this business as I have worked out all modalities to complete the transaction successfully. Once the money is released to you, we shall share in the ratio of 50% for me, 50% for you as your benefit then we will map out 5% to upset any expenses made on the process of this transaction. Reply via my private Email: Please be kind to get back to me if you are not interested so that I can further my search for another partner. Best Regards Barrister Benatt Zinn Benatt Zinn Chambers, London, UK.
