My Dear

I am highly esteemed to write you this letter, I am Jeffrey Edward a solicitor and personal 
attorney to Mrs Anselma Piroddi,an Italian citizen, who before her death was an art  
collector.Anselma died a few years ago and left me the responsibility of locating and transferring  
$1.5million she left for her only son, Angelo Piroddi.

Since then I have made several inquiries to locate the benefactor but this has proved unsuccessful.

Angelo Piroddi has now been confirmed dead, and he died intestate, I have decided to contact you to 
 assist in repatriating the money and property left behind my client before they are confiscated or 
declared unserviceable by her bankers, where the deceased had an account valued  at about 
900,000.00 as at last months assessment.

The bank has issued me with a notice as the attorney to the deceased to provide the next of kin or 
the account will be deemed unserviceable within the next 21 official working days, since I have 
been unsuccessful in locating any of Angelo Piroddi's heirs over the years, I seek your consent to 
present you as the next of kin to Angelo Piroddi's.

As the attorney to Late Mrs Anselma Piroddi,I have all the necessary legal documents that will be 
used to back up the claim. All I require from you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this 
arrangement through.

I guarantee that this arrangement will be executed under a legitimate banking procedure and the 
provision of the laws with regards to inheritance will be strictly adhered to, this will protect 
you from any breach of the law.

Lastly I have attached one of our numerous newspaper adverts asking for any one with information to 
come forward, and the time stipulated has lapsed, thus the need for your involvement.

Please take sometime to go through the attached newspaper extract and revert back to me for further 


Yours Sincerely

Jeffrey Edward
