PROMPT ATTENTION PLEASE FROM: Tahir Shahab Khan Tahir Shahab Khan 76 London Road, CR0 2TB Croydon, Email: email@example.com Let me first ask that you permit me to have used this means in contacting you. However, I am compelled to do so as Internet is the fastest way of communication of today, besides, it offers a reasonable degree of confidentiality. My name is Tahir Shahab Khan a solicitor. Obviously this letter will be a surprise to you. The reason is not far from the fact that we have not met before now more so with much spam on the Internet it becomes difficult for one to convey genuine and profitable intent to another. It has become inevitable for me to contact you by another means other than Internet as I still do consider it faster and reasonably safe as I have earlier mentioned .I do not wish to bore you with much stories, My intention of writing you this mail is to solicit for your partnership in a rewarding venture of with funds let by my deceased client by name: Benzion Dunner. Mr Benzion Dunner is a Jewish Briton that died in an auto crash months back with so much at his credit in terms of resources. He had maintained an account worth 12,759,000 Million Pounds sterling with all documents in my possession. The funds are proposed for charity when he becomes 50 years but unfortunately he dead at forty. Though he has wife and 9 children, the family is not privileged to this account as I have maintained the account for him outside UK, I have over the past months of his death administered other estate of his to his family and according to his Will but this is exclusive and I do wish that the two of us go into partnership to: A. Get all relevant legal documents in your favor and transfer the money to your account or preferable on agreement between two of us open an account in another Bank and have the found transferred into B. After the successful transfer we will use 20% of the money for charity as Benzion Dunner had proposed to me. C. After the transfer that we share 80% of the money on percentage to be agreed by both of us before the commencement of the transfer process. It is needless to ask that you keep this as a confidential issue, I presume that you are equal to this responsibility and will not indulge in blackmail or passing of this information to a third party. Already I have a member of my law firm in confidence by name: Don Saman, he is the only person that you and I are to be in partnership with. The law firm though is a more of family partnership, I have decided to do this with Don Saman as he has been a more comfortable confidant of mine Besides I want to have this transaction with a familiar fellow as Benzion Dunner is a known person in UK thus I am contacting you so that the transaction will remain a confidential. I do wish to have your remark promptly. Therefore I expect that you write me and state your telephone number that I can reach you directly. Your response should be sent to my personal email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Best Regards Tahir Shahab Khan email@example.com
