(Financial consultant & Solicitors)
Dear Partner,
I apologies for sending this mail to you but this is a matter of urgency and I would like to clarify this matter with you my name is Mr.David William Donald,
Solicitor and  financial Consultant to late Mr. Andreas Schranner a property magnate and building contractor based here in the U.K.
On 1st of june 2009, my client Andreas Schranner, 64, his wife Maria, 56, their daughter Andrea Eich, 38, her husband Christian, 57, and their
children Katharina, eight, and Maximilian, 10, died in the Air France concord A330 plane crashes over atlantic ocean on the 1st of june 2009.They were bound for brazil to france. For more information about this crash and people, visit this,
Since then I have been managing his investments here in the U.K and on his direction liquidated these investments into cash and deposited the
proceeds into his local account. My client was a successful and an accomplished family man, who made enough fortune before his untimely death. He left behind a large deposit in his investment account in financial institution here upon his death the financial institution contacted me as his financial consultant and attorney to provide them with a next of kin or Foreign partner since the person he provided for them died with him in the crash leaving a vacuum to be filled.
I had made several inquiries on my own to locate his next of kin but all has proved unsuccessful. I even contact his countrys embassy here.
Two weeks ago, the bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin or his foreign business partner/associates based on the
Agreement he sign that his fund can only be relased or transferred to his next or kin(His family) or any foreign partner for the payment of this fund
within 28 working days or forfeit the money to the bank as abandoned by the owner with no trace of next of kin.
The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1936 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me.
I tried to locate a next of kin on my own but had no luck. Despairing at the point of exhaustiveness, I contacted the His consulate here in the UK
and fortunately, they forwarded some crew from where I get to contact you. I am convinced that it was by the grace of God that made me to locate you. Hence my mail to you It is my belief that you may be reliable to me to present as my client foreign partner for the claim, I therefore, decided to contact you with these facts before me because of the urgency of the situation presently.
By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate family, I am very much aware of my client financial standing. I have reasoned very
professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin or foreign partner of my deceased client so that you can be paid
the funds left in his bank account. I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin or foreign partner to the Deceased since you are qualified so that the full proceed from his Bank Account valued at $12.2 Million Dollars can be paid to you.
I am proposing a negotiated commission for my legal services. I have all the required information and shall assemble all the necessary Legal
documents that will be used to back up our claim all I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
this is a risk-free transaction. Please get back to me immediately.
I will bring you into a more detailed picture of this transaction when I hear from you.
You may contact me through my private email address (

Best regards,
Mr. David William Donald.
