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 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 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 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 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
send me your telephone to enable 
us discuss further. 

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.
