Dear Partner,

I apologies for sending this mail to you but this is a matter of urgency
and I would like to clarify

this matter with you my name is Attorney Gerald Hamilton, Solicitor and
Advocate to late Mr.

Andreas Schranner a propertymagnate and building contractor based here in
the U.K. On the

25th of July 2000, my client Andreas Schranner, 64, his wife Maria,62,
their daughter Andrea

Eich, 38, her husband Christian, 57, and their children Katharina, eight,
and Maximilian, 10, died

in the Air France concord 990 plane crashes over Hotelissimo on July 25,
2000.They were

bound for New York in their plan for a world cruise. For more information
about this crash and

people, visit the below.


Since then I have been managing his investments here in the U.K and on his
direction liquidated

these investments into cash and deposited the proceeds into his local
account. My client was a

successful and an accomplished family man, who made enough fortune before
his untimely

death. He left behind a large deposit in his investment account in
financial institution here upon

his death the financial institution contacted me as his Solicitors and
attorney to provide them

with a next of kin or Foreign partner since the person he provided as next
of kin for the claim

died with him in the crash leaving a vacuum to be filled.

I had made several inquiries on my own to locate his next of kin but all
has proved unsuccessful.

I even contact his country’s embassy here. Two weeks ago, the bank adopted
a resolution and I

was mandated to provide his next of kin or his foreign business
partner/associates based on the

Agreement he sign with the bank for the fund to  be relased or transferred
to his next or kin(His

family) or any foreign partner within 28 working days or forfeit the money
to the bank as

abandoned by the owner with no trace of next of kin. The bankers had
planned to invoke the

abandoned property decree of 1936 to confiscate the funds after the
expiration of the period

given to me. I tried to locate a next of kin on my own but had no head.
Despairing at the point of

exhaustiveness, I contacted the His consulate here in the UK and
fortunately, they forwarded

some crew from where I get to contact you.

I am convinced that it was by the grace of God that made me to locate you.
Hence my mail to you

It is my belief that you may be reliable to me to present as my client
foreign partner for the

claim, I therefore,decided to contact you with these facts before me
because of the urgency of

the situation presently. By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his
immediate family, I

am very much aware of my client financial standing. I have reasoned very
professionally and I

feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin or
foreign partner of my deceased

client so that you can be paid the funds left in his bank account. I seek
your consent to present

you as the Next of Kin or foreign partner to the Deceased since you are
qualified so that the full

proceed from his Bank Account valued at $12.2 Million Dollars can be paid
to you.

I am proposing a negotiated commission for my legal services. I have all
the required

information and shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will
be used to back up

our claim all I require is yourhonest co-operation to enable us seeing
this deal through. I

guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that
will protect you from

any breach of the law. Trust me as his personal consultant that this is a
risk-free transaction.

Please get back to me immediately. I will bring you into a more detailed
picture of this

transaction when I hear from you.You may contact me through.
