Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year...

With due respect, trust and humility, I write you this proposal believing that it will receive the 
most desired attention from you even as we have not had any previous correspondence, Although, I am 
constrained by insufficient information about you, but I will express in full the main objectives 
of this proposal.

I am a personal attorney to late Engineer Mr. John McKnight, from your country who used to work 
with shell petrol chemical and Development Company in South Africa, Herein after shall be referred 
to as my client. On the 21st of April 2005, my client, his wife and their three children were 
involved in a car accident along Cape Town express road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately 
lost their lives.

Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended 
relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, to locate 
any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the 
money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable 
by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged, particularly the bank in South Africa where the 
deceased had an account valued at about $13.2 million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the 
next of kin or have the account confiscated after five years if not claimed.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 4 years now I seek your consent 
to present you as the next of kin of the deceased. So that the proceeds of this account valued at 
$13.2 million dollars can be paid to you and then you and i can share the money. We can share the 
money. 60% to me and 40% to you I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back 
up any claim we may make. And these I must do to make sure that this transition is not wasted or 
end up in the wrong hands.

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 

If you can be fast, this Transfer can be concluded under 10 banking days but you should keep the 
business to yourself You should not tell your bank that money is coming to your account because 
they may ask you questions that you may not be able to answer. I will tell you what and when to 
tell your bank with all the necessary document to back the source and origin of the fund as 
legitimate fund that do not originate from drug or money laundry.

Remember to include your private telephone, fax and mobile numbers for easy communication or you 
can call me for more clarifications +27785063906.

Yours faithfully,
Barrister Micheal Miller.
