Dear Friend, For the avoidance of doubts, it is very important that I make myself very clear to you. My name is Barrister Juan Carlos Cabana, an attorney at Law in Madrid-Spain. I Have a good business between both of us and I know you don't know me but I believe that a good friend can be discovered anywhere in the world. Actually I got your email address from a mail directory in search of my late client’s relatives but I could not trace them, my late client is Mr. Robert F. Labby, who lived several years in Palma De Mallorca, Spain. He died in car crash with wife and only child. Being his personal Attorney, he handed some transaction documents over to me for legal advice and safe keeping. The fund is currently in the deposit account at a bank in Barcelona-Spain where my client made the deposit. I have processed the funds for release but the bank insists that the funds will only be released to the NEXT OF KIN to late my late client. The said bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confiscated within the next twenty one official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you as the next of kin. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, I will furnish you with the amount involved, sharing ratio and modalities for transfer of the funds to your account. My legal obligation to this effect has made me to put much effort to locate his immediate or extended families which could not yield any positive result as there is no trace to their contact address or location. I will like to present you to the bank as his next of kin to enable the bank process and release the f unds to us. All I require from you is your cooperation and assurance that you will not disappoint me as soon as this money is released to us through you as the next of kin to enable us invest the funds together. Please kindly forward your personal details to me, this will enable me file in your name with your personal details as the next of kin to claim the funds. 1)* Your Name 2)* Sex 3)* Your Age 4)* Your Telephone 5)* Your Contact Address: I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Therefore, do not hesitate to revert back to me, through my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the details as requested. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law. I am waiting to hearing from you. Thank you for your time. Barr. Juan Carlos Cabana Abogados (Attorney at Law).
