Good Day ,
This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated assuch.
I am Barrister Paparazy, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/soleexecutor to the late Dr. George , hereinafter referred to asâ my client' whoworked as an independent oil magnate in my country and who died in a car crashwith his immediate family on the 4th of Oct,1998. Since the death of my clientin Oct, 1998, I have written several letters to the embassy with intent tolocate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries ofhis abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail.

Moreover, I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting alikely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in linewith existing laws by the bank in which my client deposited the sum of 18.5Million United States Dollars.

On this note I decided to search for a credible person and finding that youbear a similar last name, I was urged to contact you, that I may, with yourconsent, present you to the "trustee" bank as my late client'ssurviving family member so as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in thatcapacity as a next of kin of my client.

I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you bear a similar last namewith my client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in thatcapacity. I propose that 50% of the net sum will accrue to you at theconclusion of this deal in so far as I do not incur further expenses.

Therefore, to facilitate the immediate transfer of this fund, you need, firstto contact me via email signifying your interest and as soon as I obtain yourconfidence, I will immediately appraise you with the complete details as wellas fax you the documents, with which you are to proceed and i shall direct onhow to put up an application to the bank.

However, you will have to assent to an express agreement which I will forwardto you in order to bind us in this transaction.

Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send you by fax or E-mail the next stepto take. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-freeand that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements havebeen made for the completion of this transfer. Like I said, I require only asolemn confidentiality on this.

Best regards,

Barr.Paparazy Esq.
