Good Day Friend,

I know this letter may come to you as a surprise since we have not met before. I got your contact 
from the world trade bureau. I am Mr. Richard Berg, Director of accounts, Royal Bank of Scotland 
plc. A contractor who is a customer named ENGR. REINIER PRITCHARD, made a deposit valued at USD$5.2 
million United States dollars.

Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no answer. After a 
month we discovered from his contract employers that the depositor had died. On further 
investigation, I found out that he died without making a will. However, my proposal is to front you 
as the next of kin to the deceased Customer of our bank, if this transaction interests you, kindly 
let me know so I can brief you on how we will execute this deal.

I completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential and Kindly forward your 
full names, contact address, telephone and fax numbers where I can reach you easily. I have 
suggested that we share the funds as follows 50% for me 40% for your effort and 10% for expenses, I 
look forward to your earliest response through my alternative email Address below: 
( for security reasons.

Yours Sincerely,
Mr. Richard Berg.
