-- Attn Friend: I am Allen Bruce (Esq.) Attorney and secretary to my late deceased client of Gulf Stream crude oil. Prior to his unexpected death in August 2008 deposited $40.5M USD on trust with a Bank. Eventually, he died in a plane crash and since his death; nobody has apply for the claims of his estate as the next of kin because he died intestate. It is a situation I have monitored closely. Now having monitored this deposit and managed it over the years before his death and hence nobody has showed 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 am only waiting for a foreigner to take possession of the deposit. There is no risk attached to it as the entire document required for claims will be obtained legally by me as his proxy. I cannot make claim regarding the funds, all I have to do is to donate somebody as his next of kin and beneficiary to make claim of the said fund for us to share as Partners. I therefore request you to confirm your interest by a return message and I will forward details and more information on how to go about the subject matter. To facilitate a rather more secured link with you, kindly indulge me with the following: 1). Full Names, sex and Address 2). 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. Allen Bruce (Esq.) Principal Partner (Allen Bruce & Associates)
