I am highly esteemed to write you this very urgent letter. I am Barrister Kelly Paul, a Solicitor and Personal Attorney to late Douglas, a national of your country, who before his death was a contractor. July 2nd 1998 my client and his wife were involved in car accident along Lincolns Inn Fields Road London.
Unfortunately they lost their lives. Since then I as the Personal Attorney of the Deceased had made several inquiries to locate any of my clients extended relative but this has proved unsuccessful.
I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since nobody shows up, so that his $23, million United States Dollars will be paid to you, "then" you and I can share the money, 50% to me and 50% to you. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
All I required is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through and please do include your full name and address, age, occupation/profession, telephone & fax number so as to send every vital document which will be secured to back up this claim. You will send me a letter of invitation immediately the money gets to your account. I expect your urgent response.
Barrister Kelly Paul.
