From: (ESQ) MAC & ASSOCIATES, 4 Albert Embankments, London SE1 7SR, United Kingdom. Phone: +44 702 4051791,+44 702 407 8853 Fax : +44 870 4900630 Attention: Dear Friend It is with trust and believe that I write to you, although I don't know you neither have I seen you before, but my confidence was reposed On you. I am Barrister Mac James , a personal Attorney to Mr.Fredric Wood, and a National of your Country. He was a foreigner who used to work with Mekon Associates Company in London. On the 2nd of August 2003, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Manchester Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the internet, to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they got confiscated or declared unserviceable by the HALIFAX BANK where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Halifax Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about US$7.3M has issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over nine (9) months now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$7.3M can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money; 60% to me and 35% to you, while 5% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require, I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make, all I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Immediately you acknowledge the good receipt of this message. Anticipating your prompt response. Yours Sincerely, MAC JAMES ASSOCIATE
