Am Mr.Howard Richard, a financial adivsor.I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I 
believe would be of interest to you. This is in respect of Mr. Joseph who shared the same last name 
with you . I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and 
respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. I contact you 
independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication.I have contacted 
you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before it is confiscated or 
declared unserviceable by the Finance House where this deposit valued at $12,450.000 million 
dollars is lodged.

The Finance  House has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin,or the account will be 
confiscated because there is a government gazette/mandate/authorizing all Finance Houses to freeze 
or confiscate any account that has not been serviceable in a long period of time,this is geared 
towards capital flight for the economy. In another year, if a next of kin or relative is not 
located to inherit the fund, the Estate ($12,450.000 million) will revert back to the Bank's 
accounting system as "unclaimed" I decided to launch my own investigation and retained the 
consultancy firm which contacted you,It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished 
with your details as a possible relative of the deceased. My official capacity dictates that I am 
the only party to supervise the investigation and the only party to receive the results of the 
investigation, our dear late fellow died with no known or identifiable family member. This leaves 
me as the only person with the full p
 icture of what the prevailing.

On this note i decided to search for a credible person who bears the same last name with my late 
client and finding that you bear the same last name, which makes you eligible as a beneficiary to 
my late client, I decided to contact you, that I may,with your consent,present you to the"trustee" 
bank as my late client's beneficiary so the bank can abort their consfiscation plans and release 
the funds to  you as the beneficiary.

One fact that i am not too sure of, is how you are related to my late client because i couldn't 
make a connection between you and my late client. With the fact that you bear the same last name 
with my late client, leaves a possiblity that you are either a distant or consanguinal relative. My 
proposal; I am prepared to instruct the finance company to transfer the rights of the funds to you, 
thereby making you the new beneficiary of the funds, but on the condition that the funds will be 
shared amongst the two of us 50/50. I assure you that if you agree I can have the deposit released 
to you within a few days.

If you are able to work with me, contact me through this same email account. If you give me 
positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a successful conclusion. I assume you will 
not betray my confidence? I look forward to your prompt response

Best regards,
Howard Richard
