Dear Friend,

I know this letter will be getting to you as a surprise but please I would indulge you to treat it with ultimate good faith to enable us have a mutual business relationship.My name is Nicolas Smith; I am a South African by birth, resident in London.I am the Head, Claims department {Atg} For NORWICH UNION London.During the course of my job, I came across a file belonging to an American who has worked in England for twenty two years (22yrs), he died in a motor accident two years ago and as a matter of fact, he is entitled to some claims.

1) Workmen Compensation (W.C)
2) Pension Scheme (Working entitlement)

Unfortunately, when we tried to contact his wife who is his next of kin, we were informed by a new occupant of the apartment that she died seven months ago.What I need you to do is to play the role of his next of kin to enable us process all his entitlements as they run into 7.2 million.I shall send you the details of this transaction as soon as you give your consent on this claim.And I also assure you that we shall have more of such insurance related claims to make when we seal up this particular deal.We will also agree on sharing method before we embark on this transaction.


Yours Sincerely

Nicolas Smith(Mr)
