Dearest in mind, 

This is a personal email directed to you and i request that it be treated as such. 
I am Barrister Jose Miguel, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to an 
independent oil magnate in my country and who died along with his entire family in July 2000 in a 
plane crash. For more information about the crash you can visit this site: 

Since the death of my client in July, 2000, I have written several letters to the embassy with 
intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his 
abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail. 
Moreover, I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting a likely proceeding for 
confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank in which my 
client deposited the sum of 7.5 million Euros. 

On this note, i decided to search for a credible person and finding that you are a foreigner, i was 
urged to contact you, that i may, with your consent, present you to the bank as my late client's 
surviving family member so as to enable you put up a claim to the bank as a next of kin to my late 

I find this possible for the reasons that you are a foreigner making it a lot easier for you to put 
up a claim in that capacity. I propose that 40% of the net sum will accrue to you at the conclusion 
of this deal. 

Therefore, to facilitate the immediate transfer of this fund, you need, first to contact me via 
email signifying your interest and as soon as i obtain your confidence, i will immediately appraise 
you with the complete details with which you are to proceed and i shall direct you on how to put up 
an application to the bank. However, you will have to assent to an express agreement which i will 
forward to you in order to bind us in this transaction. 

Upon the receipt of your reply, i will direct you on the next step. This proposal is hitch-free and 
that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the 
completion of this transfer. Like i said, i require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Send 
your reply to ( 

Please, if this mail is contrary to your moral belief, I will suggest you delete it and keep it 
between you and me.

Best Regards, 

Jose Miguel (ESQ).
