RE: MUTUAL BENEFICIAL RELATIONSHIP.
This is a personal business proposal addressed to you and I request that it be treated as such.
I am Barrister Daniel Easton, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr. Carlos Hernandez Garcia, hereinafter referred to as 'my client' who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country and who unfortunately, perished in the Madrid Plane Crash of 20th Aug; 2008 with his entire family.
I am contacting you to assist in retrieving the money he deposited with a Finance Security Company in Canada, hoping he will use the money after his successful trip for purchase of Real Estates. I am the only living person who knows about this deposit as his personal attorney. I have the original C.of.D and some valid documents relating to the deposit in my possession. The trunk containing the fund was registered with the Security Vault as âPersonal Effectsâ. The disguised intent was to safe-guard the fund.
I seek your consent therefore, to present you as the beneficiary, so that the proceeds of this deposit valued at USD$40M will be released to you and then you and I will share the Money 60/40. I shall procure all /relevant/necessary legal documents that would be needed to back up this claim we may make.
Upon the receipt of your reply,I will send you by fax or E-mail the next step to take. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fear as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this transaction thus protecting us from any trace or breach of law. I require only a solemn confidentiality, honesty, transparency and sincerity of purpose on this.
NOTA BENE: PLEASE DO REPLY, USING EMAIL LINK OR MY PERSONAL FAX CONTACT INSCRIBED BELOW:
Looking forward to your urgent response while hoping to be of great business relationship with you.
Daniel Easton, Esq.
