My name is Barr. Yinka Williams, permit me to wish you a happy christmas in advance and i hope you 
have a blessed x-mas, I believe the content of my message to you after reading this would sure 
bring a big financial relief to you and your family. I wish to notify you again that you were 
listed as a beneficiary to the total sum of US$4,700,000.00(Four Million Seven Hundred Thousand 
United States Dollars Only) in the intent of the deceased (name now withheld since this is my 
second letter to you).

I contacted you because you bear the same last name with my deceased client and therefore I can 
present you as the beneficiary to the inheritance, since there is no written will from my late 
client. Our legal services aim to provide you with a complete service as I am prepared to provide 
you with all the documents required by the holding Bank to enable them release this inheritance 
funds to you.

All the papers work required will be processed upon your acceptance of this deal as I am prepared 
to offer you 70%, 30% for me, be informed that once we secure the money to you, we would reimburse 
each other any amount we must have spent to see the transaction through, then we would share the 
money 70/30.
