Dear Partner,
I am Barrister Mr  Jerry Smith, Black British Lawyer Based Here in London - United Kingdom. I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.  
I am contacting you with respect to inherit a portfolio amounting to #35,520,000BPS (Thirty Five Million, Five Hundred and Twenty Thousand British Pounds Sterling) deposited by a German Merchant named Mr. Jaeger.On the 18th of October 2002, Mr. Jaeger deposited #12,000,000 BPS(Twelve Million British Pounds Sterling) under our portfolio management department for four years and the deposit matured on the 18th of October 2006 with over 196% growth which amounted to a total of #35,520,000 BPS(Thirty Five Million, Five Hundred and Twenty Thousand British Pounds Sterling).The account has been dormant and unclaimed due to unavailability of a next of kin/relation to claim his money.
Mr. Lan Jaeger, has since passed away without stating his next of kin because he deposited the funds in our establishment at a point he was finalizing divorcing his wife and had no kids coupled with the fact that he was an orphan, this funds has since mature and the roll-over on the funds has also expired. This sum of #35,520,000BPS USD (Thirty Five Million, Five Hundred and Twenty Thousand British Pounds Sterling) is still in my possession in The Bank lifeless and unnoticed because there will never be a claim on the funds and all material and immaterial documents and certificates relating to the funds is also in my possession. According to the banking law and guidelines here in london, stipulates that at the expiration of six (6) years such funds will be revert to the ownership of the Government for financing military operations, such as purchasing of arms and ammunitions for the military. In order to avert this negative development.

I will like to seek for your permission as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr. Lan Jaeger so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not be use for financing weapons which will further enhance the courses of war in the world in general.
  Since, It is not compulsory that the next-of-kin/relation must be a blood relation to the deceased.The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 30% for you as gratification for assistance rendered and the balance of 5% will be responsible for the major /trivial expenses incurred if any during the course of the transfer, while 5% will be given to any Orphanage home in your country. Thereafter, I will visit your country for sharing according to the percentage indicated.
