Dear Sir,

We write and solicit unbehalf of the properties of my client Mr Robert Fitzpatrick, 68  who  died 
in an air crash along with his wife Mrs. Sharon Fitzpatrick aged 67 on the 31st October 1999 in an 
Egyptian airline boeing 990 with other passengers on board. 

You can confirm this fact from the website which was
aired by the BBCWORLDNEWS:,before his death,he 
domiciled account with the Barclays Bank, which is presently having from my secret investigations, 
an opening balance of USD$4.800m.(Four million Eight hundred thousand u.s dollars) as he was a 
businessman who contracted many vessels and was suppliying food to bakassi penusula regions 
throughout the 14 years the bakassi war lasted.

Since his death, none of his relatives or associates have come forward to lay claims to his funds 
as next-of-kin,as his wife whom he made his next of kin died in the same crash and on my own I have 
made concented efforts to locate any of his relatives but all proved abortive.

Based on the ethics and policies of the bank,it would be declared unclaimed and taken to the 
treasury of the bank as capital base of the bank, because already the account has been tagged 
dormant having exceeded the normal functional period of years.(9 years past)

The bank cannot release the funds from his account unless someone applies for it or lays claim as 
the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in the banking guidelines.
Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission and assistance to present you and have you stand as 
a next of kin to the deceased,so that the funds can be released and transfered to you, as all 
documentations will be carefully worked out by me for it to be released in your favor as the 
Account Holders next of kin, if not the members of the board of directors will utilise it as their 
personal profit as unclaimed money  and shared amongst the directors of the bank as part of profit 

So it is on this note I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of 
kin/beneficiary rather than allow the bank directors to share it amongst themselves at the end of 
the year. 

Note the folowing points;

The transaction   is 100% risk free as my client bank account Management officer is in agreement 
with me to look for somebody and pull out the money.

The money however, will be  divided into 4 parts, you will take 35% of the $4,800m, myself 50%, the 
account officer of my    late client who will help to get the approvals in your favor will take 5%, 
while 10% is set aside to offset any expenses we may individually encure during  the transfer 

That I will use part of my share to help the less privileged home, e.g. motherless homes, 
handicapped homes as this are my reasons why I  did not allow the Bank Directors who are already 
rich, to mess up my clients money while there are poor people in the society who needs  help, I 
have decided within me,to open a Charitable Organization in Memory of my late client.

It may interest you to know that I have secured from the probate commission an order of mandamus to 
locate any of the  deceased beneficiaries.

Please furnish me with the following information if you are ready/committed to work with me.

1. A beneficiary name/address, in order for me to prepare the document for transfer in your name.

2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers...For our personal contact and for easy communication between 
both of us.

I await your urgent response as further enquiries should be placed exclusively by phone and or 

Kindly treat this with utmost despatch.

Yours Truly,
