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
property-magnate 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 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
