Good Day,

I am Barrister Francis Cheng Esq, an attorney at law. A deceased client of mine that shares the same genealogical last name with you, died as a result of a heart-related condition on March 12th 2007 leaving behind a deposit valued at $17.5 million dollars. His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the tsunami disaster in Sumatra Indonesia. 2004_Indian_Ocean_earthquake.

The bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin. My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client. This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Best Regards,
Francis Cheng Esq.
