Dear Friend I am a legal practitioner; I saw your contact and profile I decided that you could co-operate with me in this business proposition. Lately, I received a call from the bank notifying me that my late client deposited a sum of (?10.5m) British Pounds Sterling” (name withheld since this is our first letter to you). I was contacted base on information they got from some documents that back-up the depositions in which my name was mentioned as his personal Attorney. I contacted you because you have the same identity with our client and therefore can present you as the beneficiary to the inheritance since there is no written will, our legal services aim to provide our private clients with a complete service. my late client who died along with his entire family in the Gulf Air Flight Crashes in Persian Gulf near Bahrain Aired August 23, 2000 - 2:50p.m. ET as reported on http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0008/23/bn.08.html Since you have the same last name with him the proceeds of his estate would be paid to you as his next of kin or the legitimate beneficiary. All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next-of-kin would be provided by me. The most important thing is your honest co-operation towards this proposal. This would be done under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law. If you are interested, please contact me at once through my confidential Email; firstname.lastname@example.org I will be waiting to hear from you soon. Best Regards, Mr. Glen Johnson.
