Greetings, Naturally, this letter will come to you as a surprise since we have not met but please permit me your audience, as i introduce myself. I am WILSEN WONG, business man and partner of one of the law firms in the Malaysia. I have come with an anticipating open mind as i propose to you a very good business incentive with the sole intention of having you come in as a partner. I had been the personal lawyer to one of our top client, who died as a result of a heart-related condition in March 12th 2007 leaving behind a deposit valued at $19 million dollars in bonds. His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the tsunami disaster on the 26th December 2004 in Sumatra Indonesia of which i have some of the vital documents. This is a situation I closely monitored as i have been his lawyer during the years before his death and hence, i can say with authority that nobody has shown up as the next of kin for the past years. I now solicit for your assistance to present you as the next of kin as every other arrangement has been concluded by me. I only wait for a suitable partner to take possession of the deposit, so that i can cover my tracks. There is no risk attached to it as the entire document required for the claims will be obtained legally by me as his proxy. I need you to know that i cannot make any claims regarding the funds but what i can do is to donate somebody as his BONAFIDE next of kin and beneficiary to make claim of the said fund for us to share as partners. Most of the document's and transactions regarding his funds are all here with our chambers and get the rest from the necessary agencies and all i have to do is to make some changes on the document to suit you and the funds will thereafter be transferred to you as his beneficiary. I therefore request you to confirm your interest by returning a message as I will forward you more details and information on how to go about the subject matter. My private EMAIL(email@example.com) and treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity To facilitate a more secured link with you, kindly indulge me with the following: 1). Telephone, Fax and Cell phone numbers. This project is ready for execution as soon as I hear from you. I look forward to your swift response to this letter Sincerely Yours. Mr. WILSEN WONG
