The Beneficiary,

Estate of Engr. Michael Smith.

I wish to notify you that you were listed as a beneficiary to the bequest of the sum of US$7.6M 
[Seven Million Six Hundred Thousand US Dollars] in the codicil and last testament of the deceased. 
The late Engr. Michael Smith until his death was a former Managing Director and pioneer staff of a 
big construction company in China and later invested in poultry farm and rice.
 
He established himself as a wealthy farmer in Asia where he exported rice and other poultry 
produce. He was a very dedicated man and a great philanthropist during his lifetime. He involved 
himself in helping people by giving invest able loans in agriculture and health care ventures. Late 
Michael Smith died on 9th March 2007 at the age of 78. He has since been buried on the 23rd of 
March 2007. He was a US citizen, lived in Asia all through his active years but later moved down to 
London UK due to long-term illness where he died in a specialist hospital. He was married but 
without a child and lost his wife in 1986 due to breast cancer.
 
He said in his words as stated in his last testament that "it is my desired wish to see that the 
poor and less privileged are given assistance by any means and limit this token could go, 
especially in Asia, Africa and South America having seen it all myself". He therefore advised that 
this amount be "invested and 40% of the proceeds be used for charity annually, while 60% be 
retained by the beneficiary for his efforts".
 
I hereby request that you reconfirm the information below for proper identification of your person
 
(1) Your Full name as you  want it to appear

(3) Your correct forwarding address
 
 Please note that this is for real, as we will take care of any expenses.
