Dear Friend,

                                Greetings and compliments.

I am Patrick Joop, a solicitor at law. I was the personal attorney to Eng.
Gilbert M. Reain, a national of your country who used to work with an
oil servicing company here in the Netherlands thereof be referred to as my
client. Eng. Gilbert M. Reain, 62 years of age made a fixed deposit of
fund valued at USD$12,500,000 (Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars Only) with a Finance Company here in Europe and
unfortunately lost his life in an Egyptian charter plane Boeing 737 which
crashed into the Red Sea early on January 3 shortly after taking off from
the resort of Sharmel-Sheikh, killing all the 135 passengers and 13 crew
members aboard, Ref: (View:
tp:// He
left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents
related to the deposit still in my possession. Recently, the governing
body of the Finance Company contacted me on this matter, requesting that I
should notify the next of kin of my late client to claim the funds and I
am yet to provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the Fund. I know that
my client had no living next of kin but I went ahead and made several
inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my late client's extended
relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. Under a clear and legitimate
agreement with you, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin,
so that my late client's fundS will not be confiscated by the Finance

You and I can share the money, you will be entitled to 40% of the total
fund for your role as the relative and next of kin of my late client, 50%
for me while 10% is to be marked out for any expenses that will be
incurred during the clearance or process of transfer of the fund to your
bank account. Be informed that there is no risk involved as all necessary
legal documents that will be used to back you up as the legal beneficiary
and next of kin of my late client will be procured.

All I require is your sincerity, honesty, co-operation and utmost good
faith to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be
executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
breach of the law.Kindly, get in touch with me by my e-mail
( or telephone to enable us discuss further. You may
also send your telephone number so that I can call you.
Do not forget that a transaction of this magnitude requires utmost
confidentiality and sincerity. I look forward to your urgent response.

Thank you,


Patrick Joop.
