Dear, Firstly, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction; this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.

My name is Philip Kahrmann,a personal Attorney to Late Mr.Peter Engel.

The Bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin or the account will be declared unserviceable and the fund diverted to the Bank treasury, So far all my efforts to get a hold of someone related to this man has proved abortive. Hence, I have contacted you. I am actually asking for your consent to present you to the Bank as the Next of Kin/beneficiary of my late client's fund,so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to your account. All the legal documentations to back up your claim as my client's Next of Kin I shall provided them. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us achieve this transaction. I wish to point out that I want 20% of this money to be shared among the charity Organizations, while the remaining 80% is shared equally between us. This proposition is entirely risk free. I will use my position as the client's attorney to guarantee the successful execution of this transaction.
