Dear Friend,

I wish to approach you with a request that would be of immense benefit to
both of us. I am an attorney based in Scotland United Kingdom. I want you
and I to make some fortune out of a situation that I am obviously left
with no other better option. The issue that I am presenting to you is a
case of my client that willed a fortune to his only daughter. It is
unfortunate that he and his daughter died on the London Bomb attacks on 7
July 2005. The wife died of heart attack on receiving the sad news a week
after. I am now faced with a problem of getting a trusted person who I
will make the beneficiary that I would pass the fortune to. And according
to the law such fortune is supposed to be bequeathed to the government if
there is not any relatives or next-of-kin of the decease that would
surface for claim of the fortune.

However, I personally dont belong to such school of thought that proposes
that such fortune be given to the government because this is cheating and
is possible that the top government officials for their own selfish
interest could divert the fortune. Because of this I am contacting you to
seek your acting as the beneficiary of the will. I am my client attorney
and I alone knew about his will. Upon indication of your interests, all I
will do is to amend the will by fitting in your name as the supposed
next-of-kin and back it up with a sworn affidavit, which automatically
became valid. This amendment should be between us and must not leak out to
anyone. It is absolutely confidential.

I have complete information of his bank account details with an
outstanding balance of $48,550,000.00USD ($48.550 Million USD). To make
you be sure of this, I can provide you with details of his bank to enable
you to log on to his account to confirm this balance. I know that you
would be apprehensive and feel that this is a big sum, but it does not
matter because this is a legacy being passed on to a next-of-kin and you
are the available next-of-kin.

As I am not very sure of getting your consent yet on the issue, I prefer
not to divulge my full identity so as not to risk being disbarred. Until I
am sure of your consent and full cooperation then I will not be afraid to
give you my full identity. In the meanwhile, I would prefer that we
maintain correspondence by email and fax. At this point I want to assure
you that your true consent, full cooperation and confidentiality are all
that are required to enable us to take full advantage of this golden

I shall make representation to the legal courts to facilitate the
amendment process within three working days. Since this is a transaction
of immense benefit to both of us, I would want that we shared all expenses
according to our agreed sharing ratio of the fortune. The sharing ratio
shall be 60% for me and 40% for you. This shall also be applicable to all
expenditures that would be incurred in the course of the transaction
because I wouldn?t want either of us to feel cheated. Please note that
this is a legal and risk free transaction that does not in anyway hamper
the monetary laws of your country. It is an inheritance fund.

If you are interested to work with me, please provide me with your name,
address, nationality, age, and date of birth, height, and phone and fax
numbers as required for the amendment of the WILL. On completion of this,
I will send you a copy of the amended WILL which you will fax to the bank
with a back up letter written by your good self requesting for the release
of the fund to you. I will also write to the bank as the legal
representative of my client before his demise, ordering for the transfer
of the fund to you, as the beneficiary of his will.

I will appreciate your urgent response in this regard. Thanks for your
anticipated cooperation.You can as well reach me on:
