Dear Friend, I like to intimate you with a request that would be of immense benefit to you and me. Being an executor of WILL, we can make fortune out of our client's situation, since we cannot help it, or left with no better option. The issue I am presenting to you is about a Will of my late client to his next-of-kin. It was most unfortunate that he died with his next-of-kin the same day in the Sharja plane crash on Tuesday 10 February 2004. Now, I am confused on whom to pass the fortune to. According to the British law, the fortune is supposed to be bequeathed to the government. However, I do not belong to that school of thought which proposes that the fortune of unfortunate people be given to the government. If you permit me, I wish to present you as the beneficiary to the legacy (£12.4million) which my client bequeathed to his next-of-kin. For now, It is known only to me. Everything will be left between you and me. The share would be 40% for you and 60% for me. All I have to do is to amend the WILL stating you as the beneficiary to the £12.4million. I prefer not to give my full identity; the British Bar considers it a breach of the oath of the Council. I need not emphasize to you that the sensitivity of this issue need not be toyed with by neglecting its confidentiality. At this point I want to assure you that your true consent, full cooperation and confidentiality is all that is required for us to take full advantage of this great opportunity. This is an opportunity that people rarely have. I look forward to hearing from you soon Yours truly Barr: Mark Henderson
