Dear Friend, I wish to intimate you with a request that would be of immense benefit to both of us. Being an executor of Will, it is possible that we may be tempted to make fortune out of our client's situations, when we cannot help it, or left with no better option. The issue I am presenting to you is about my client who WILL a fortune to his next-of-kin. It was most unfortunate that he and his next-of-kin died on the same day in the sharja plane crash of Tuesday 10 February 2004. I am now faced with confusion of who to pass the fortune to. According to the Nigeria laws, the fortune is supposed to be bequeathed to the government. However, I don't belong to that school of thought which proposes that the fortune of unlucky people be given to the government.my purpose of contacting you is to seek your assistance to act as the benefactor of the WILL, and lay claim to the legacy(US$14.2million Dollars), which this my unfortunate client bequeathed to his next-of-kin. For now, It is only known to me, as my client has great confident in me. Everything will be left between you and I. The share would be 40% for you and 60% for me. All I have to do is to amend the WILL stating you as the beneficiary to the 14.2million Dollars.as I am yet to get your consent on this issue, I prefer not to divulge my full identity so as not to risk being debarred. The Nigeria Bar considers it a breach of the oath of the Nigeria Bar Asssociation. I need not emphasize to you that the sensitivity of this issue need not to be toyed with by neglecting its confidentiality. until I am sure of your consent,full cooperation and genuine willingness to assist me for our mutual benefit, I would prefer that we maintain correspondence by email.At this point I want to assure you that your true consent, full cooperation and confidentiality are all that are required for us to take full advantage of this great opportunity. This is an opportunity that people rarely have. Yours truly, Barr.Owen Bradson
