Hello ,

This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated
as such. I must solicit your confidentiality and assure you that I am
contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit.
I am Barrister Jason Karter,a solicitor at law. I am the personal
attorney/sole executor to the late Mr. Robert ,here in after referred to
as 'my client's who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country and
who died in a car crash with his immediate family in east London on the
5th of November 2001.

My late client a former Sub-Comptroller working with Chevron Texaco Oil
here in the United Kingdom and had left behind a deposit of Nine Million
Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling only(9.8million)with a
finance company. After the death of my client, the finance company
contacted me, as his attorney to provide his next of kin who should
inherit his fortune, this according to them is their policy in such

Since the death of my client, I have written several letters to the
embassy with an intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall
be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such
efforts have been to no avail. I had to inform the finance company about
my fruitless effort in locating my late client's close relative or his
next of kin. The board of directors of the company just adopted a
resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment
of this money within the next 8 official working days or forfeit the money
as an abandoned funds. The company had planned to invoke the abandoned
property decree of the company to confiscate the funds after the
expiration of the period given me. Also I have received official letters
in the last two days suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of
his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws of the

Well I have reasoned very professionally and I can use a legal means to
present you as next of kin to my late client. this is legally possible and
would be done in accordance with the laws of the land. On this note I
decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a
similar last name, I was urged to contact you, that I may, with your
consent, present you to the "trustee" as my late client's family member so
as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of
kin of my client. I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you are
of the same nationality and you bear a similar last name with my late
client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity.
I have all vital documents that would confer you the legal right to make
this claim and would make them available to you so that the proceeds of
this bank account valued at 9.8million can be paid to you before it gets
confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge amount
is lodged.

I do sincerely sympathize the death of my client but I think it is
unprofitable for his funds to be submitted to the government of this
country or some financial institution. My aim is to retrieve this funds
and let it be claimed by the deceased family name.For this I seek your
assistance since I have been unable to locate the relatives for the past
8years now.

I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased
since you have the same last name giving you the advantage so that the
proceeds of this account can be paid to you and then both of us can share
the money,60% to me and 40% to you. I know there might be other persons
out there with the same surname as my last client, but after a little
check my instinct tells me to contact you. Can I trust you on this? I
shall assemble all the necessary documents that will be used to back up
your claim.

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that
will protect you from any breach of law. I will not fail to bring to your
notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain
any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion
of this transfer.

Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Please get
in touch with me by my alternative email for
better confidentiality and send to me your telephone and fax numbers to
enable us discuss further on this transaction. My contact number is
+447624155288 If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue
advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you,Thanks for your

Kind Regards.

Barrister Jason Karter
