Dear Partner, 

I am Barr. Harry Williams ESQ, of Williams Chamber. My client Mr. Mike Hall, a business and real 
estate mogul made a numbered fixed deposit of 6 (six) calendar months, with a value of US$9 Million 
USD only with a financial institution. Upon maturity, I had sent to him several notices without 
response. A final Maturity Notice on his investment I had again sent early February and still no 
response from him. Furthermore, I sent a two-man delegate to His residence and official addresses 
as stated in his confidential file in my chambers, only to find out that the real estate Mogul and 
his family perished in the Tsunami disaster. A confirmation of his death you could read via the
link below:

After further investigations, it was also discovered that Mr. Mike Hall did not declare any Next of 
Kin or Trustee to the deposited funds apart from his wife who also died in the disaster, including 
the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he visited my office 
that no one apart from his wife and I knew of his deposit in the bank. The said $9 Million USD is 
in the bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it, that I know for sure. According to the 
banking laws of the United Kingdom, at the expiration of Five year (5 year) without any transaction 
on the account, funds will confiscated mostly if nobody applies for the claim. I am proposing to 
you as a foreigner to stand as Trustee to the said funds but not Next of Kin as it could warrant 
unnecessary suspicion because you are never related to the deceased. Let's put heads together to 
see how we can transfer these funds out of this country and use it judiciously.

I'll use my capacity as his Attorney to secure all necessary document(s) from the high court that 
will back you up as Trustee to my late client's deposited funds.

All that is required of you for the moment is to send to me as soon as possible your full name(s), 
contact/forwarding address(s), your direct phone and fax number(s), your business or company name 
and contact details if any to enable me commence work immediately. I will also file in for claims 
on your behalf and secure the necessary approvals and most importantly a letter which will be 
presented to the bank as written by my late client after the deposit appointing you as his only 
Trustee to the funds. It will all be in your favour for the funds to be moved to your destination 
account. We'll endeavour to adopt a legalized method in the whole process thereby ensuring no risk. 
I am offering you 25% of the total sum for your assistance and partnership in this deal. It's 
negotiable, if it's not ok with you. Waiting to hear from you via my PERSONAL MAIL BOX: 

Best regards,
Harry Williams ESQ.
