DANIEL WILSON'S LAW CHAMBERS LEGAL PRACTITIONERS AND PRIVATE LAWYER 6 NOEL STREET LONDON, W1F 8GJ UNITED KINGDOM PHONE: +44-702-407-7209 LATE MR. FRANK TERRY'S PHILANTHROPIC ESTATE Beneficiary, My name is Mr. Daniel Wilson; I am a native of England, and president in the Chambers Daniel Wilson's Law Chambers here in London, United Kingdom. I am a legal practitioner, called to the U.K Bar in 1980. I used to be the personal Attorney to late Mr. Frank Terry. Mr. Frank Terry was a great philanthropist before death; before he died, he made a philanthropic will of Five Million Dollars (US$5,000,000.00)which was meant to be donated to charity organizations in Africa to support African children living with HIV/AIDS. We conducted an electronic email random draw in our chambers today, and your email address was picked as the beneficiary to this philanthropic fund of $5m. It is our great desire to claim this fund so that it can be used for the purpose for which it is meant, because the bank where the money is currently deposited has instructed that we produce the beneficiary of this fund within 14 days else the money will be confiscated to the Government's treasury as unclaimed funds. You have to get back to me immediately so that we can begin the process of transferring the fund into any of your designated bank accounts. As soon as I receive your reply message I shall give you further information on the process. With your full co-operation, this transaction shall be concluded within 7 days, and after the funds have been transferred into your account, you shall keep 50% of the money ($2.5m) to yourself as the beneficiary, donate 40% to any Charity Organization of your choice, while the balance of 10% comes to me as your attorney in this transaction. Also, this transaction is highly confidential and should remain as such until the funds must have been transferred into your account, so do not discuss this transaction with ANYBODY. I wait to hear back from you immediately, so that I can give you all the necessary information needed to proceed, and don't forget to include your name, location and phone numbers in your response. Congratulations once again. Barrister Daniel Wilson (Esq.) Copyright Â 2008 Daniel Wilson Law Chambers, all rights reserved.
