Greetings,
 
 
I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business. Though this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest medium of communication. However, this correspondence is private, and it should be treated in strict confidence.
 
 
 
I am Barrister Anthony Peto, London, United Kingdom. I am a lawyer by profession, as such I got your contact through a web directory search and decided to solicit your assistance to be presented as NEXT OF KIN to my Late Client Mr. Rafael Douglas. The deceased is a United States Citizen and Oil Merchant in India and UK also a British based business man and international contractor before he died.
 
 
 
My Deceased Client has a fixed deposit valued at  US$45,000,000.00  (Fourty five Million United States Dollars) with Santander Bank, UK which is about to be paid to him, but unfortunately my client lost his life in an auto crash, and left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents related to the contract which he executed with Falkland oil and Gas marketing company, London, UK which are still with me. All efforts by me to trace his Next of Kin proved abortive because he did not make any will prior to his death.
 
These funds which is about to transfer into your account was accrued from the contract payment executed by my late client, which was for the supply of oil and gas equipments, storage product for Falkland oil and Gas marketing company, London UK. Also be informed that the bank has contacted me as my late client's personal lawyer on this matter and I am yet to provide the Next of Kin or any relation to lay claims to these Funds.
 
 
 
Under a clear and legitimate agreement with you, I shall seek your consent to be presented as the next of Kin, as I will like to invest my own share of the funds in your country so that my late client's funds will not be confiscated by the British government. I propose a sharing formula of 60/40 if you will agree to stand in as the next of kin and have the funds transferred into your nominated bank account that you will provide.
 
Most importantly, it will interest you to know that with my position as my late client's personal attorney i will secure a classified power of attorney in your favor that will empower you as the next of kin to my late client and this will be obtained from Her majesty Court service here in the United Kingdom. As well as all modalities to effect the payment and subsequent transfer of this money will be worked out by you and I.
 
 
 
So be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free, though you are required to treat this transaction with utmost confidentiality, AND On your acceptance to work with me, please send me your personal details as listed below for speedy correspondence.
