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 Geoffrey DeWitt Bell (QC.), Solicitor and Financial 
Adviser to late Mr. Bradley Robinson a property magnate and building contractor based here in the 

On the Thursday July 7, 2005, my client Mr. Bradley Robinson, 64, his wife Maria, 62,their daughter 
Andrea , 38, her husband Christian, 57, and their children Katharina, eight, and Maximilian, 10, 
died bus and tube hit• Jack Straw: 'hallmarks of al-Qaida'.For more information about this 
crash and people,

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 families 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 
released 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 your honest 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 my  Email:   .

Please provide your personal contact details and e-mail for further correspondence.

Best regards,
Geoffrey DeWitt Bell (QC.)
