Greetings, I am a staff of one of the Corporate Financial Service Providers in UK. We had a customer who deposited sum of Â6,200,000.00 with us, he eventually died in an air crash (Cessna 500 Citation I) on the 30th of March 2008 in London, England without any reference to a next of kin and I was his account manager. In accordance with the UK Trust and Federal Laws, at the expiration of 6 (six) years, his investments with our Financial Trust shall revert to ownership of United Kingdom government if nobody applies as the next of kin to claim the investments. I want to present you to stand in as the next of kin so that you and I can benefit from this investment/deposit equally. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement and I will also arrange the necessary documents that will protect us from any breach of the law. If you agree with me, let me know your level of interest for discussion of this deal in further details and your share in the business. Note, l will advise you immediately on things to be done and this project will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the payment schedule. Note: Your full address and private telephone number is required ASAP. With friendly greetings, Barry Porter
