180 ENGLEHEART ROAD SE6 2ED LONDON.
I am a Solicitor and a Business Consultant here in the UK. It is indeed my pleasure to write you this letter which I know is absolutely going to be of a great doubt and distrust in your heart as so many individuals have taken possession of the internet to facilitate their selfish interest, thereby making it extremely difficult for genuine and legitimate business class persons to get attention and recognition.
I discovered that a late client of mine who died along with his wife and two children in a car accident on the 11th of January 2006 has no one to stand for claim on a deposit he made with HSBC BANK PLC (US$14,689,000.00)Fourteen Million, Six Hundred and Eighty Nine Thousand Dollars. He wanted to set up a Gas Plant project in Asia with this fund as record showed.
Since his death, I have been unable to locate any of his relation or next of kin and the Bank has given me Four weeks to provide his next of kin or else they will confiscate this fund and I can not claim this fund except someone else is presented as the next of kin. I seek your permission to have you stand as the next of kin to the deceased as all documents will be provided by me. I would like to have this money transferred into your account as an Investment fund.
The investment areas are not limited and may include new businesses or injection of funds into an existing firm that, of course, is profit oriented. Bearing in mind that you are not authorised to invest in public companies or government agencies. You can incorporate a firm fully owned by you based on the laws of your country or invest the money in a private company as a shareholder or private account. Trading with this fund in stocks should be granted under a special agreement between you and I. I will present all adequate documents that will be required during the course of this project.
You can decide if we would have the fund moved to your account while we have a meeting on how we can invest it. All ideas are welcome as your suggestion and opinion will be helpful to us. I will offer you 35% of this fund for your contribution / assistance.
All these are without any liability to you as this is no risk. All you need is to give surety and ascertain your credibility, resourcefulness and guarantee that fund will be safe with you. You will be required to meet with me to finalise arrangements on how to move the agreed funds into your account and sign related documents that will authorise you to manage this fund on my behalf. A draft agreement will be forwarded to you to enable us modify all incompatible areas and ensure a smooth take off. If you are interested in working with me, kindly email me back to send me the follow information's.
1) Your full Name.:
3) Phones and Fax No.:
