Dear Friend, I have a business proposal for you, I am contacting in respect of the fund belonging to my late client, Mr. Paulsen Fredrick who died years back. I was his chief accounting officer, this client deposited the sum of Ј7,525,000.00 (Seven Million Five Hundred and Twenty Five Thousand British Pounds Sterling) which has been floating without anyone coming for it. Subsequent to my personal investigation i found out that he was single before his death and he died of cardiac arrest. I needed a foreigner who would help transfer the fund to his country for investment as my position in the deal has made it practically impossible that I participate, this will allow traces, and this deal is very confidential and must be treated as such hence I shall direct any interested partner to a lawyer who will help him through all legal documentation but I must remain neutral even the lawyer shouldn't know about our connection. Kindly get back to me if you are interested but please note that your total dedication and commitment is highly needed to make this transaction a success. Thanks as i look forward hearing from you. Regards. Williams Ashley
