Zaid Ibrahim & Co. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 12th Floor, Menara Bank Pembangunam Jalan Sultan Ismail I hope that I am not embarrassing you with this mail because you did not expect it or know me before.kindly be rest assured that I have irresistible urge to write it, this mail is an indication of love and happiness. I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition. My name is Barrister. Zaid Ibrahim, a legal practitioner and partners law firm in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have a client who was deceased in November, 2007, in Kaula Lumpur, Malaysia. I am contacting you because you have the same surname as my deceased client and i felt that you could help me in the distribution of funding that were left in my deceased client's bank account. This funding is closed to be declared un-serviceable by the bank as there were no indicated next of kin or next of beneficiary of the funding in the bank account. The total amount of cash in the bank account of my deceased client is US$ 12.5 Million (Tweve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) The bank had issued to me a notification to contact the next of kin of my deceased client for either to re-activate the bank account or to make claim of beneficiary, of the funding in the bank account, with a month surcharge of 6% to be deducted as an Escrow safe keeping fee of the bank account, so as to avoid the indefinite closure of the bank account. My proposition to you is to seek your consent, and to present your kind self as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my deceased client, since you have the same last name with him. This means that the proceeds of his bank account would be paid to you as his next of kin or the legitimate beneficiary. When the proceeds in his bank account are paid to you, we would share the proceeds on a mutually agreed-upon percentage of 60% to me and 40% to your kind self. All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin would be provided by me. The most important thing I would need is your honest cooperation in this proposition. This would be done under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law. If this business proposition offends your moral and ethical values, feel free to back out. Please contact me through this private mail at once if you feel interested. Best Regards, Barrister Zaid Ibrahim Esq.
