I am Attorney Webster S. Alexander, a solicitor at law. I was the personal attorney to Eng, John McPherson, a citizen of your country who used to Work with an oil servicing company here in United Kingdom after which be referred to as my client. Eng, John McPherson 62 years of age made a fixed deposit of fund valued at USD$14,500,000 (Fourteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) with a Security Company/Finance institution in United Kingdom and unfortunately lost his life in one of the bomb blast in Iraq, see link for verification (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/8127222.stm) He left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except Some vital documents related to the deposit still in my possession. Recently, the governing body of the Security Company/Finance institution contacted me on this matter, requesting that I should notify the next of kin of my late client to claim the funds and I am yet to provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the Fund. I know that my client had no living next of kin but i have made lots of search to see if i can get in contact to any of his relatives but my search was fruitless to locate any of my late clients extended relatives. A clear and legitimate agreement with you, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin so that my late client's fund will not be confiscated by the Financial Regulatory Authority. You and I will share the money, you will be entitled to 40% of the total fund for your role as the relative and next of kin of my late client, 60% for me. Be informed that there is no risk involved as all necessary legal document which will be used to back you up as the legal beneficiary and next of kin of my late client will be procured. All I require is your sincerity, honesty, co-operation and utmost good faiths to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Kindly, get in touch with me by my e-mail to enable us discuss further. You may also send your telephone number so that I can call you. Do not forget that a transaction of this magnitude require utmost confidentiality and sincerity. I look forward to your urgent response. Thank you, Attorney Webster S. Alexander
