Dear Friend 

Greetings and compliments. 

I am Bas Hans, a solicitor at law. I was the personal attorney to

Eng. Gilbert M. Reain, a national of your country who used to work with

an oil servicing company here in the Netherlands thereof be referred to

as my client. 

Eng. Gilbert M. Reain, 62 years of age made a fixed deposit of fund

valued at USD$12,500,000 (Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United

States Dollars Only) with a Finance Company here in Europe and

unfortunately lost his life in an Egyptian charter plane Boeing 737

 which crashed

into the Red Sea early on January 3 shortly after taking off 

from the resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, killing all the 135 passengers and

13 crew members aboard, Ref:


He left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents

related to the deposit still in my possession.

Recently, the governing body of the Finance Company contacted me on

this matter, requesting that I should notify the next of kin of my late

client to claim the funds and I am yet to provide the Next of Kin to


claims to the Fund.

I know that my client had no living next of kin but I went ahead and

made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my late


extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. Under a clear and


agreement with you, I seek your consent to present you as the next of

kin, so that my late client's funds will not be confiscated by the

Finance Company. 

You and I can share the money, you will be entitled to 40% of the total

fund for your role as the relative and next of kin of my late client,

50% for me while 10% is to be map out for any expenses that will be

incurred during the clearance or process of transfer of the fund to


bank account. Be informed that there is no risk involved as all

necessary legal documents that will be used to back you up as the legal

beneficiary and next of kin of my late client will be procured. 

All I require is your sincerity, honesty; co-operation and utmost good

faith to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be

executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any

breach of the 

law. Kindly, get in touch with me by my


) or telephone to enable us discuss further. You may also send your

telephone number so that I can call you. 

Do not forget that a transaction of this magnitude requires utmost

Confidentiality and sincerity. 

I look forward to your urgent response. 

Thank you, 


Mr Bas Hans.
