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: (View: 
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 lay 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 client's extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. 
Under a clear and legitimate 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 your 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 e-mail 
( 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, 

Bas Hans.
