Dear Friend,

Naturally, this letter will come to you as a surprise, since I am Barrister
Patrick K. Chan contacting you to kindly assist me in the proposition below,
which will be of mutual benefit to us both.

A Salvadorian, Mr. Ramirez Videurre, 66 years of age and a very prosperous
farmer made a huge bank deposit for investment in the sum of US$21.2 Million
(Twenty-one Million, Two hundred thousand United States Dollars) he named his
wife Mrs. Helga Videurre as the NEXT OF KIN . I was called upon as an
Accredited Attorney to the bank to sign and endorse documents to this deposit
on Mr. Videurre?s behalf. 

Unfortunately, Mr.& Mrs. Videurre were killed in the January 14, earthquake
that rocked El Salvador, killing thousands of people and 1200 others were
declared missing. The bank management now mandates me (being the lawyer that
signed and endorsed the deposit papers for the deceased to trace the family
relatives of the deceased so that the fund will be released to them.
I was made to understand that they had no children. I made several efforts
through the El Salvador Probate British to contact any of the deceased family
relatives, but to no avail. Failure to reach any of the family relatives of the
deceased , the only option left for the Banks Management is to declare the
deceased account dormant and revert the fund on trading and investment in the
interest of the bank. In order to avoid this development since it has so far
been impossible to trace any of the deceased family relatives. I now seek your
permission and assistance to have you stand as a distant relatives to the
deceased. So that the fund can be released to you and we can use it for our
mutual benefit.

I hope you do understand my concern in this matters, that if we do not use this
opportunity to claim this fund , since the deceased relatives cannot be traced,
the management of the bank will declare the deceased account dormant and revert
the fund on Trading and Investment in the interest of the bank. For your
assistance, you will be compensated adequately with (30%) of the total sum
(65%) will be my own share while (5%) will be set aside to cover any 
incidental expense made both at home and abroad prior to this transaction. If
you are interested in assisting me with this matter, please send to me urgently
via my EMAIL the following details below:

Your Full Name:_____________________
Your Complete Address:________________________
Name of City of Residence: L____________________
Date of Birth (Day/Month/Year_______________
Direct Telephone Number:___________________
Mobile Number: ____________________________
Fax Number:___________________________________

Upon receiving the above details from you, I will work out every 
documents/proof representing you as the deceased BONA-FIDE distant relative and
when this is done, you will be contacted by the bank for the release and
collection of this fund, which will be within one week of my receiving the
above details from you .
I will meet with you in your country for disbursement after the fund might have
been released to you and also to discuss investment potentials as I will like
to invest in your country with your assistance. Be assured that this
transaction is 100% risk free, as I have taken care of all necessary modalities
to enable a hitch free transaction. Kindly ensure to treat this matter in
strict privacy(Highly Confidential).

Yours Sincerely
Francis Waite. Esq.
