I am sorry for contacting you through this medium without a previous notice,I had to use the E-mail because it is an easier and more confidential way of making contact with people around the world.My name is Barrister Byran Coleman,an Attorney in practicing here in London-England.I had a client,mr.Michael Brewster a businessman based here in London , now deceased.My client lost his life  on the 7th day of July 2005 on a bomb blast here in London.Details of this incidence can be checked on the following newslink:

Prior to the Death of my Late Client he made a fixed deposit of US$8,750,000.00 M in a bank in London,England As his personal Attorney before his death,I have been officially notified and instructed by the bank here in U.K where the money isurrently deposited that I should provide and forward the particulars of my client's next of kin so that the Funds in his Account can be remitted into his Next of Kin's Account in accordance with British Laws.
However, as the personal attorney and close confidant of my late client I want you to know that My late Client died intestate,i.e,He died without leaving a Will.Hence,all my efforts to locate any of his relative whom I can present to the bank has proved abortive. Therefore I am seeking for your consent to present you as the deceased relative/next of kin and subsequently the beneficiary of the fund so that the proceed of this account valued a US$8,750,000.00 Million can be paid to you for subsequent disbursement between you and I . 60% for me ,35% for you and then 5% will be set aside for any expenses we might incure in the course of the transaction.

If you can cooperate with me and receive this funds as next of kin to My client,confirm your interest by contacting me through my EMAIL.I can assure you that the deal is 100% risk free because i am in possesion of the deceased personal file which contains all information which I shall use to prove your relationship with the deceased therefore the money will be paid into the account of whomever I present as My client's Next of kin with proofs that I will present to the bank when needed.When I receive a positive response and after proper discussion with you,I will furnish you all relevant information that will facilitate there lease of the Funds to you An Application will have to be filed to the security firm for processing of the release of the Funds into your nominated Bank account.

I wait to hear from you.
