Dear Friend, My name is Grace Sarah Smith; I am 24 years old, from London - England, where I school and work as a fashion designer after I return from school. I am the only daughter of my parents, I lost my father in a fatal auto accident on his way to see my sick mother at the hospital where she was admitted for breast cancer treatment, she gave up when she heard about the death of my father same day in same hospital where he was rushed after he had the accident. Before the death of my father he willed his Real Estate Business & Gas Stations together with a total sum of Ј50,700,000.00 (Fifty Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling) to me. After the death of my parents particularly my father I have been finding it difficult to pay my school fees and also finding it difficult to put food on the table which the fashion designer job I am doing as part time work can’t help. So, I went to the bank where my late father deposited the funds on my behalf to with-draw some money to take careof myself, pay my school fees an I was shocked when the Bank Management explained to me that I will not be able to with-draw from the deposited money, because my father had put a clause on the Will and the form he filled while depositing the fund with them, saying that before I will be given access to the money, I will either have to be 30 years or I will be given access to the money, if only I get married before the age of 30,in which case my husband will be eligible to collect the money on my behalf by standing in as my husband or as a next of kin to claim the deposited funds on my behalf. Today I am only 24 years old. And I have no access to the money till I'm 30 years. So, I’m contacting you to stand is as my husband to claim this fund on my behalf or as a next of kin if you are married already. So, please get back to me as to know how you will be remunerated as I will part with 40% of the total sum Ј50,700,000.00 (Fifty Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling),while 10 % will be mapped out for any expenses that we're to use to Please remember that I am writing you this email purely on the ground of trust so we can achieve this deal together. This transaction will last for two weeks after you get back to me on how serious you are to claim these funds on my behalf. Please reply to my alternative E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Yours Truly, Grace Sarah Smith
