I am  Lim Hassan , An Attorney at law based in Malaysia , South East 

Asia , My late client was a private oil consultant/ contractor with the Shell 

Petroleum Development Company in Malaysia before his death. My client, his wife 

and his three children lost their life in the 2004 tsunamis natural disaster 

while on their holiday in Phuket Thailand . It may interest you to know that my 

client died "in testate". 


I decided to contact you purely on the personal conviction of trust and 

confidence to assist in distributing the money left behind by my client. The 

deceased had a deposit valued presently at (US $3,500,000) and the security company has 

issued me a notice to provide his next of kin or beneficiary by will, otherwise 

the account would be confiscated. My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as a 
Relative/next-of-kin and beneficiary of my client, so that the proceeds of this account could 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 

any 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. 


Best regards,
