Greetings: It is my pleasure contacting you now, as I have longed to get in touch with anybody who knew my late Client.I am Michael Briggs personal attorney to my late client, who died along with his wife and only son in an auto crash on the 17th of July, 2007 that occurred in Paris, France. My client had deposited about Four million United States dollars in a bank. Since then there had not been any trace of claim from any person as the fund remains dormant in his account with this bank. Although, I kept this information secret within my jurisdiction to enable me put claims and transfer the said amount through a trustworthy Partner whom I shall present to the bank as the next-of-kin to the deceased to my late client. Ever since I have been trying to locate the next of kin or any of the relatives to come forward and make this claim, but to no avail. Since you are from the same nationality AND bear the same surname with my late client and I have in my powers to present you as relative to my late client to enable you inherit the fund as his next of kin and only surviving relative and claim the funds. I am willing to process the needed documents to have you presented as next of kin to my late client so that you can become heir to the funds he deposited in the bank before his death. As soon as you become beneficiary to the funds, and the funds transferred to your account in your country, 50% will be yours for your assistance while the remaining 50% will be mine. If you interested in this offer please mail me as soon as possible. On receipt of your response to this mail I will give you more details. Best Regards, Michael Briggs Esq.
