I am Barrister Jim Hang,Attorney at law. A deceased client of mine,
that shares the same last name as yours, who died as the result of a
heart-related condition in March 12th 2005. His heart condition was due
to the death of all the members of his family in the tsunami disaster on
the 26th December 2004 in Sumatra Indonesia .

I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind by
my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank
where this deposit valued at Eighteen million dollars (US$18million
dollars) is lodged. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next
of kin, or the account will be confiscated.

My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the
next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, since you have the same
last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then
we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. All legal
documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin will be
provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
transaction through.

This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from many breach of the law. If this business proposition offends
your moral values, do accept my apology. I must use this opportunity to
implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter
extraordinary confidential, whatever your decision, while I await your
prompt response. Please contact me at once to indicate your interest. I
will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as
possible via my private EMAIL :( and treat
with absolute confidentiality and sincerity. I look forward to your
quick reply.

Best regards,
Barr Jim Hang
Attorney at Law.
