Barrister Roger Scott 33 Bedford Row London WC1R 4JH DX 75 Chancery Lane. Dear Friend, I am Mr. Roger Scott,an attorney with the above mentioned chambers in the United Kingdom, a personal attorney/confidant to Late Mr.Christian Eich.On Monday,28th July, 1995,I was appointed as a personal attorney/confidant to Mr.Christian Eich,(Late) an engineer who ran a carmaker BMW's museum and Business man of international repute. Late Christian Eich before his death made a Deposit (Fixed) valued at Ј9,000,000.00 GBP ($14,651,648.38 USD) for twenty four(24) calendar months in one of the banks here in the UNITED KINGDOM (Name witheld).Upon Maturity,the bank sent me a routine notification as his personal Attorney to present any of late Mr.Christian Eich NEXT OF KIN or extented family since Christian Eich,57, his wife Andrea Eich,38, and their children Katharina,8, and Maximilian, 10,and entire family all perished in the jet which crashed on Monday, 31 July 2000 into the Hotelissimo. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm After further investigation,been his personal Attorney/confidant, i discovered that his only Next of Kin were his wife Andrea and both kids who were also involved in the crash.I also discovered that Late Mr.Late Christian Eich did not declare any other next of kin or relatives in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paper work here in my custody except his wife Andrea and Kids who are all involved in the plane crash. The total sum, Ј9,000,000.00 MILLION POUNDS ($14,651,648.38 US DOLLARS) is still in the bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. All efforts to trace and locate any of his extended family proved abortive and in accordance with my country's banking laws and constitution guiding the banking institution stated that after the expiration of 10(Ten)Years, if no body or person comes for the claim as the next of kin, such money will be revert to the Government treasury if nobody applies as the next of Kin to claim the fund. Consequently, It is upon this respect, I SEEK TO PRESENT YOU AS THE FOREIGN PARTNER TO STAND IN AS THE NEXT OF KIN to the late Mr.Christian Eich since no one will come up for the claim. There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going to adopt a legalized method and I will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue,however I would like to be sure of your willingness, trustworthiness and commitment to execute this transaction with me,I cannot afford to compromise these virtues. Considering the money involved,it is necessary for me to be sure of the person to whom I will be entrusting this transaction,my trust is not given out lightly, I need to be convinced that you are a matured person with some intergrity.Furthermore, if we follow up this transaction diligently it would be completed within 8 working days. What I expect from you is trust and commitment, I want this large sum of money transferred with your assistance into your country. Upon acceptance of this proposal and as we progress i shall send to you by mail all the necessary documents as well as detailed information on how this deal would be carried out,SO WE CAN INVEST IT FOR BOTH OF US IN YOUR COUNTRY UNDER YOUR WATCHFUL EYES. I hope to hear from you as soon as possible as regarding your interest. Kindest Regards, Barr. Roger Scott.
