Good day to you and your family, I apologize if the content here under is contrary to your moral ethics but please treat with absolute secrecy and personal.
I wish to introduce to you a project that would be of immense benefit to both of us. Being a lawyer and an executor of (WILLS), it is possible that we may be tempted to make funds out of our client's situations, when we cannot help it, or left with no better option.
The issue I am presenting to you is a case of my client who willed $12.5 millions to his next-of-kin. It was most unfortunate that he and his next-of-kin died on the same day 21st April 2004 in a ghastly car accident. Having waited this long, I am now faced with indecision about who to pass the funds to.
However, I don't belong to that school of thought which proposes that the funds of unlucky people be given to the government. I therefore seek for your assistance in presenting you as next of kin to the deceased. Documents covering the funds will be raised in your favor leading to the official and legal release of the funds to you. I will reveal other details upon your response to this email and as soon as we establish correspondence.
I therefore request you to confirm your interest by a return message with your view and telephone number for more oral discussion.
What you stand to gain would be discussed and it is negotiable before the claim commences. Thank you in anticipation of your urgent response to my email address: email@example.com
