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 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
sharjah plane crash of Tuesday 10 February 2004. I am now faced with
confusion of who to pass the fortune to.

According to the English law, 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 (12.4million pounds
sterling), which this my unfortunate client bequeathed to his next-of-kin.
For now, it is only known to me, as my client has great confidence in me.
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 12.4million pounds sterling. 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 English Bar considers it a breach of the oath of the English
bar Council. I need not emphasize to you that the sensitivity of this
issue need not be toyed with by neglecting its confidentiality.

Due to the risk involve and also the activities of fraudsters now rampant
on the internet, and 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. I look forward to hearing
from you soon. You can reach me also on this email address:

Yours truly,
Barr. Jacob Craig.
