Dear Friend,

Naturally, this letter will come to you as a surprise, since I am  Barrister Patrick Chan 
contacting you to kindly assist me in the  proposition below, which will be of mutual benefit to us 


A Salvadorian, Mr. Ramirez Videurre, 66 years of age and a very  prosperous farmer made a huge bank 
deposit for investment in the sum  of US$21.2 Million (Twenty-one Million, Two hundred thousand 
United  States Dollars) he named his wife Mrs. Helga Videurre as the NEXT OF  KIN . I was called 
upon as an Accredited Attorney to the bank to  sign and endorse documents to this deposit on Mr. 
Videurre?s behalf.

Unfortunately, Mr.& Mrs. Videurre were killed in the January 14,  earthquake that rocked El 
Salvador, killing thousands of people and  1200 others were declared missing. The bank management 
now mandates  me (being the lawyer that signed and endorsed the deposit papers for  the deceased to 
trace the family relatives of the deceased so that  the fund will be released to them.

I was made to understand that they had no children. I made several  efforts through the El Salvador 
Probate British to contact any of  the deceased family relatives, but to no avail. Failure to reach 
any  of the family relatives of the deceased , the only option left for  the Banks Management is to 
declare the deceased account dormant and  revert the fund on trading and investment in the interest 
of the  bank. In order to avoid this development since it has so far been  impossible to trace any 
of the deceased family relatives. I now seek  your permission and assistance to have you stand as a 
distant  relatives to the deceased. So that the fund can be released to you  and we can use it for 
our mutual benefit.

I hope you do understand my concern in this matters, that if we do  not use this opportunity to 
claim this fund , since the deceased  relatives cannot be traced, the management of the bank will 
declare  the deceased account dormant and revert the fund on Trading and  Investment in the 
interest of the bank. For your assistance, you  will be compensated adequately with (30%) of the 
total sum (65%)  will be my own share while (5%) will be set aside to cover any  incidental expense 
made both at home and abroad prior to this  transaction. If you are interested in assisting me with 
this matter,  please send to me urgently via my EMAIL the following details below:

Your Full Name:_____________________
Your Complete Address:________________________
Name of City of Residence:________________________
Date of Birth (Day/Month/Year):__________________
Direct Telephone Number: ____________________
Mobile Number: ____________________________
Fax Number:___________________________________

Upon receiving the above details from you, I will work out every  documents/proof representing you 
as the deceased BONA-FIDE distant  relative and when this is done, you will be contacted by the 
bank  for the release and collection of this fund, which will be within  one week of my receiving 
the above details from you .
I will meet  with you in your country for disbursement after the fund might have  been released to 
you and also to discuss investment potentials as I  will like to invest in your country with your 
assistance. Be assured  that this transaction is 100% risk free, as I have taken care of all  
necessary modalities to enable a hitch free transaction. Kindly  ensure to treat this matter in 
strict privacy(Highly Confidential).

Yours Sincerely
Patrick Chan Esq
