Dear Friends,

I am Abdul Razak Yaacob, an attorney at law. A deceased client of
mine, by name Mr. Michael, who here in after shall be referred to as
my client, died as the result of a heart-related condition on the 11
November 2005. His heart condition was due to loses and shock from the
death of all the members of his family on 12th March, 2004 in Sumatra 

Indonesia as reported on:

I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind
by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the
bank where this deposit valued at Six Million Five Hundred Thousand
U.S dollars ($6, 500 000) is lodged. This bank has issued me a notice
to contact the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated.

My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the
next-of-kin and beneficiary of my late client, since you have the
same last name with him, so that the proceeds of this account can be 

paid to you. Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon
percentage. All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's 

next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation 

to enable us see this transaction through.

This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from many breach of the law. If this business proposition offends
your moral values, do accept my apology. I must use this opportunity
to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter
extraordinary confidential, whatever your decision, while I await your
prompt response. Please contact me at once to indicate your interest.

I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as
possible and treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity. 

I look forward to your response.

Best regards,
Barrister Abdul Razak Yaacob
