Hello. I am Mr. E. Doros, lawyer to late Thomas McCulloch of Durango, Colorado who lost his life in a plane crash involving Egypt Air Flight 990. He was one of the state's most prominent native and business leaders. All these you are very free to verify from the web link below for more information and clarification about his socio-economic status until his death. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/502503.stm before the demise of my client, he disclosed to me his account status, which amounted to $50.8usd (Fifty Million Eight Hundred Thousand America Dollars). He also handed over to me some vital copies of documents regarding this fund already trapped in a finance house. He wished to invest in Real Estate,Tourism and any other viable venture before his death. I have made thorough inquiries about his relatives but, discovered no one really knows about this fund currently. Since then, I have made successive attempts to get his next of kin or relative to come forth and claim this fund but to no avail.As personal lawyer to my late client, I cannot in any way claim it unless someone overseas does so. Just two weeks ago, I received a routine notification from the finance house concerning this fund, and the officials of this firm issued a warning, stressing the urgency for late Mr. Thomas McCulloch's relative or next of kin to come forward to claim this fund immediately or they will have it confiscated and forwarded to the nation's treasury account as an unclaimed fund. This is the agreement they have reached at the company and they also reiterated that this is according to the company guidelines. MY REQUEST: Owing to the fact that his wife Jean, died of leukemia in October 1989. His wife whom should have stood a better chance of claiming this fund is dead, I want you to stand in as the next of kin to late Mr. Thomas McCulloch .Like I earlier asserted, I have in my possession the necessary documents that will enable me to place you in, as the right beneficiary to my late client's fund in this firm. Further more, in respect to proceeds of the investments; I propose a sharing ratio of 40%/60%. This means that you will get 40% from the proceeds of the investments. I have also decided that you will take 5% of the total sum as soon as the transfer is completed to your accounts. I must remind you that trust and transparency must be our watchword in the course of this transaction. Required Details Full Name: Full Address: Phone Number: I will get the documents ready as soon as I get the above information’s , submit at the office of the financial company who will contact you as soon that is done. I look forward to receiving your reply soon. Yours sincerely, Mr. E. Doros.
