Good day my dear friend,

This is a law firm and I am an attorney at law under this firm. My interest in you lies in the fact 
that you share
 the same last name with one of my deceased client, I therefore seek your consent to present you as 
the heir/heiress 
or the beneficiary of my late client's estate, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to 
you. Then we can 
share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. This office as legal representatives of the 
deceased was 
issued 6 months ago with a notice to contact heir/heiress, or the account will be confiscated. I 
advertised this issue 
but no one has turned up for this period prompting me to write this letter to you as a last resort 
to avoid the money from 
being taken by the state.

Based on your last name I am contacting you to assist in distributing the money and other assets 
left behind by my client 
of which the other assets will be revealed at a later date once this money is successfully 
transfer. The transfer has to be 
done before everything is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this deposit 
valued at US8.7 million 
dollars is lodged. Note that it is not compulsory that the heir must be a blood relation to the 
deceased, and no DNA TEST 
will be conducted .An heir could be anybody, Friends, Church, School or Organization etc. If you 
agree to work with me and 
we keep this matter confidential then kindly send your details so that we begin the process and I 
let you in on more details.

Kind Sincerely
