Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Charles Scott, the Auditor General, Smith & Williamson Holdings Limited, United Kingdom. 
In the course of 

my auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account, which was opened in 1990 belonging to a 
dead foreigner who 

died in 1999. I have been able to contact the Late account holder's attorney; but every effort made 
to track any 

member of his family or next of kin has since failed hence I got in contact with you to stand as 
his next of kin since 

you bear the same last name. He died leaving no heir or a will. Since his attorney is aware, you 
will contact his 

attorney since he has all the legal documents backing the fund. 

My intention is to transfer this sum of Five Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars 
only, in the 

aforementioned account to a safe account overseas. I am therefore proposing that you quietly 
partner with me and 

provide an account or set up a new one that will serve the purpose of receiving this fund. For your 
assistance in this 

venture, I am ready to part with a good percentage of the entire funds. We will share the funds in 
the proportion of 

60% for you, 10% for the attorney, 20% for me and 10% will be donated to Charitable Organizations. 
After going 

through the deceased person's records and files, I discovered that:

(1) No one has operated this account since 1999.

(2) He died without an heir; hence the money has been floating.

(3) No other person knows about this account apart from the attorney and there was no known 
beneficiary. That is 

why every process has to go through the attorney.


If I do not remmit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to 
company's funds, which 

will benefit only the directors of my firm. This money can be approved to you legally as with all 
the necessary 

documentary approvals in your name. However, you would be required to show some proof of claim, 
which the 

attorney will provide you with and also guide you on how to make your applications.

Please do give me a reply so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my 
proposition. I 

completely trust you to keep this proposition absolutely confidential, I look forward to your 
prompt response. 


Best Regards,


Mr. Charles Scott

Auditor General,
Smith & Williamson Holdings Limited,
London, United Kingdom.
