CHARLES & SAWADEE CHAMBERS Interchange 21 Building, 23rd Floor, 399 Sukhumvit Road, North Klongtoey, Wattana, Bangkok 10110 Thailand. Dear Sir/Madam, My name is Charles Sawadee and an attorney by profession, in my quest to find a reliable trustee to manage the assets/estate of my late client valued at only US$18million (Eighteen Million United States Dollars Only), I contacted you and it is the only reason why you are receiving this email from me. I was born in the City of Bangkok, Thailand but I traveled sometime and I studied in UK. I have no intention whatsoever to delve into your private life considering the fact that you have never had any communication with me in the past, but due to the nature of this business project based on the fact that I lack the locus-stand to assume the role of the trustee or appoint any of my relation to become the trustee by virtue of the facts and circumstances surrounding this project, I am left with no other choice, but to carry out a discreet search for a reputable person outside the shores of my country and consequently seek your stewardship. I am the Personal representative to Late Mr. Blatter A. Thaksin, who used to work with SIAMRAK Company Limited in Bangkok Thailand. My client (Late Mr. Blatter A. Thaksin) deposited $18million with his bank before he had a car accident and died along with his family and ever since then all my effort to trace any of his relation was to no avail. This Bank has waited for more than one Year now for me to bring forward his Next of Kin, so they issued me another notice to provide the Next of Kin to late Mr. Blatter A. Thaksin, who will claim the US$18million in their custody within the next fourteen official working days as the bank knows me very well, I do visit their office with Late Mr. Blatter A. Thaksin when he was alive, so they all know I and Mr. Blatter A. Thaksin, and they also know that I am his only Attorney and believed that I should know everything about him. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for more than a year now, I seek your consent to present you to claim the fund as the Next of Kin to the deceased, so as to enable the Bank transfer the fund into your Account. Upon receipt of the fund in your account, I will either give you an account from another bank where you will transfer my own share to me or I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement of the fund, and then you and I will share the money in this order: 60% will be for me, 40% will be for you. Be informed that the funds are clean and has no links whatsoever with either drugs or terrorism, and all I require is your honest/co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through, as I guarantee that this will be executed under a justified arrangement that will protect you from any Breach of the Law. Finally, I shall provide you with more detailed information upon hearing back from you. Thank you, all inconvenience is regretted. With Best Regards, Barrister Charles Sawadee (Esq).
