Before I proceed, I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail 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 Barr. David West the personal attorney to late Mr. Peter a seasoned Company Director before his untimely demise On October 5, 1999, my client was involved in a train crash., Britain's worst train crash. You share the same surname with my client hence I contacted you to assist me in recovering the Fund valued at USD$20.5 Million (Twenty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars Only). The Bank where the fund is deposited has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the fund confiscated within the next Three (3) Weeks of official working days from now. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over seventeen (17) years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this fund can be paid to you. On receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for the transfer. I have all necessary information and legal Documents needed to back you up for the claims. All I required from you is your honesty and maximum co-operation which this transaction deserves. I guarantee that this will be executed under 100% legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please, get back to me if you are interested. Sincerely, Barr.
