-- Hello, I work with a reputable law firm in the United Kingdom and I got your contact through Public Sector Information. There is a possibility that you may be related to my late client, a national from your country whom i owe a legal obligation. If you are not, I may still be able to work out modalities for transferring his estates still under my custody and funds still deposited in a financial institution in your name as beneficiary so all heredity may be in your favor. If you can stand as beneficiary, I will pronounce you as the legal beneficiary and process change of ownership status to enable the funds and estates be transferred to your name; In this case, I will have to come into a direct arrangement and split the funds when released to you on a fifty-fifty basis. The detailed total amount in deposit and estates cannot be stated in this mail until you will provide a more direct means of communicating by either fax or phone so we can be sure to go into the claims arrangement. I want to insist that I transact with you directly, so do provide your number and I shall call you immediately I receive your response and provide you with the details. I expect you to indicate your interest in going further. Kindly copy all your response to my private email: email@example.com Sincerely, Barrister Ben Barton
