Attention: Sir/Madam,
                                           NEXT OF KIN TO MY LATE CLIENT.
I am Barrister Edward Lucas based in UK, a solicitor at law. I was the personal attorney to 
Richarson Jessica Walker, a National of your country who used to work with an oil servicing Firm 
here in London, United Kingdom {UK}, after which was referred to as my client. Late Richarson 
Jessica Walker 42 years of age made a fixed deposit of fund valued at Five Million Five Hundred 
Thousand United States Dollars Only {US5,500,000.00} with a Security Company/Finance Firm in Europe 
and unfortunately he lost his life in an earthquake in Italy on the 8th April 2009 (View:
He left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents related to the deposit 
still in my possession.
Recently, the governing body of the Security Company/Finance Firm contacted me on this matter, 
requesting that I should notify the next of kin of my late client {Late Richarson Jessica Walker} 
to claim the funds and I am yet to provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the Fund. I know that 
my client had no living next of kin but I went ahead and made several inquiries to your embassy to 
locate any of my late clients extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. Under a clear 
and legitimate agreement with you, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin so that my 
late client's fund will not be confiscated by the Security Company.
You and I can share the money, you will be entitled to 30% of the total fund for your role as the 
relative and next of kin of my late client, 60% for me while 10% is to be marked out for any 
expenses that will be incurred during the clearance or process of transfer of the fund to your bank 
account. Be informed that there is no risk involved as all necessary legal documents that will be 
used to back you up as the legal beneficiary and next of kin of my late client will be procured.
All I require is your sincerity, honesty, co-operation and utmost good faiths to enable us see this 
deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will 
protect you from any breach of the law. Kindly get in touch with me by my e-mail 
( or telephone to enable us discuss further. You may also send your 
private telephone number so that I can call you.
Meanwhile, these are the needed information from you to enable us commence progress on this 

1.Your full name
2. Your direct telephone number.
3. Your full address.
4. Your full banking details.
5. Copies of your identity {By e-mail attachment}.
