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( 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.
