Before I proceed, I must first apologize for this unsolicited letter to you. I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, but I do have limited choice. My name is Roland R Naegeli a Solicitor working with EJC (Estudio Juridico Castellana) with address: C/Caracas Nє 16-5-33B, Madrid 28010 Spain. Actually, I got your contact address from the internet while searching for a reputable business partner in your country's public records. My Late client, a business mogul who had casinos and restaurants, lived in Spain for many years, my client, his wife and their one child were involved in an underground train crash in the eastern city of Valencia as Victims of the Tuesday, 4 July 2006, Incident that befall the Spanish You can confirm through this website (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/5143738.stm
Before his death, he has a deposit of Euros 8.5M (EIGHT MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND EUROS) in a well known bank here in Spain. The bank has mandated me to present the heir/next of kin for claims, before the money gets confiscated or reverts as unclaimed fund. So I decided to search for any of my late client's relative which has been very difficult for me, as he did not declare any other person, address, partner or relatives in the official paper works of his deposit.
Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to my client, with my position as his lawyer, I will now appoint and recognize you as the heir. I will obtain every relevant document from the probate to make your claim legal. Note that this process is not risky in any manner and it is completely legal but might not be justified morally. He was my private client, I will not like you to involve any third party in this transaction, just me and you .Besides I am doing this on my own personal capacity and do not wish to bring my office into it. Once the fund is released to you, I am proposing 40% of the total sum to you for your involvement.10% would be set aside for any expenses that could be incurred during the transaction I would retain 50% for myself.
Note that when the whole documents are ready, it would be your responsibility to approach the bank and make application for the release and transfer of the funds. If this proposal does offend your moral values please pardon me otherwise reply via my private email address: email@example.com for further clarification. Please be kind to get back to me if you are not interested so that I can further my search for another partner.
