Dear Friend

Greetings and compliments.

I am Bas Hans, 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 Sharm el-Sheikh, killing all the 135 passengers and
13 crew members aboard, Ref:

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
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
extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. Under a clear and
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 Company.

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 map out for any expenses that will be
incurred during the clearance or process of transfer of the fund to
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
) 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,
Mr Bas Hans.
