My name is Dr Faradin Ahmad, a legal practitioner with JOHOREBAR chambers in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.
I saw your contact and profile, and I decided that you could co-operate with me in this proposition.
I have a client who was deceased in November, 2001, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am contacting you because you have the same surname as my deceased client and I felt that you could help me in the distribution of funding that were left in my deceased client's bank deposit.
This deposit is to be declared UN-serviceable by the bank as there have been no indicated next of kin of next of beneficiary of the deposit. The total amount of cash deposited by my deceased client is US$4,700,000.00 (Four Million and Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars), only.
He confided this in me when he was alive. The bank has issued to me a notification to contact the next of kin of my deceased client to either make claim as beneficiary of the safe deposit, or to re-activate the period of deposit with a monthly surcharge of 6% to be deducted as an Escrow safe keeping fee of the deposit.
My proposition to you is to seek your consent, and to present your kind self as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my deceased client, since you have the same last name with him. This means that the proceeds of his safe deposit would be paid to you as his next of kin or the legitimate beneficiary.
When we have the fund by our selves, I want you to propose a sharing percentage for you and me. All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin would be provided by me. The most important thing I would need is your honest co-operation to this proposition.
This would be done under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law.
I really hope to get a positive response from you in regards to this proposal.
Faradin Ahmad Esq.
