We are not sure you received our previous letter wherein we expressed our 
grave concerns about the estate of our late client. On behalf of the 
Trustees and Executors of the late British Philanthropist, Sir John Paul 
Getty Jr., we wish to notify you once again that the late Sir John Paul 
Getty Jr. made you one of the beneficiaries to his (WILL), he bequeathed 
the sum of Nine Million Seven Hundred and Eight Thousand Six Hundred and 
Ninety Two Great British Pounds Sterling Only (GBP9,708,692.00) which is 
equivalent to the sum of $15,533,900 USD (Fifteen Million Five Hundred and 
Thirty Three Thousand Nine Hundred United States Dollars) to you in the 
codicil and last testament to his (WILL) which is eleven (11%) of his total 
funds of GBP88,260,443.00 (Eighty Eight Million Two Hundred and Sixty 
Thousand Four Hundred and Forty Three Great British Pounds Sterling.

This may sound very strange and unbelievable to you, but it is real and 
true. Sir. John Paul Getty Jr; being a widely popular traveled man, he must 
have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were nominated to 
him by one of his numerous friends here or abroad who wished you well. Sir 
J. Paul Getty Jr., the reclusive American-born philanthropist was the third 
son of the first American oil billionaire, billionaire American oilman 
Jean, Paul Getty. 

According to him this money is to support religious and humanitarian 
activities and to help the poor and the needy in our society.  Please if I 
reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible 
to enable me conclude my job. I hope to hear from you in no distant time.
