Dear Friend,

Greeting to you.

I wish to accost you with a request that would be of
immense benefit  to both of us. Being an executor of
wills, it is possible that we  may be tempted to make
fortune 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 a fortune to his  next-of-kin. It was most
unfortunate that he and his next-of-kin  died on the
same day in the Sharja plane crash of Tuesday 10
February 2004. I am now faced with confusion of who to
pass the  fortune to.

According to the English law, the fortune is supposed
to be  bequeathed to the government. However, I don't
belong to that school  of thought which proposes that
the fortune of unlucky people be  given to the
government.My purpose of contacting you is to seek
your  acting as the beneficiary of the will, and lay
claim the legacy of  12.4million, which this
unfortunate client of mine bequeathed to  his
next-of-kin. For now, I alone know about his will, as
my client  has great confidence in me.

Everything will be left between you and I. The share
would be 25%  for you and 75% for me. I would want to
take care of the needy and less privileged, as this is
my primary objective. All I have to do is amend the
will to make you the beneficiary to the 12.4million

Again, I feel that you may apprehensive and consider
this amount too big for you to defend. It does not
matter, as there are documents to back it up. This is
a legacy being passed on to a next-of-kin. As I am not
very sure of getting your consent on the issue I
prefer not to divulge my full identity so as not to
risk being disbarred. The English Bar considers it a
breach of the oath of the English Bar. I
need not emphasize to you that the sensitivity of this
issue need not be toyed with by neglecting its
confidentiality. I therefore appeal to you not discuss
this request with anybody, even if you decline my

Until I am sure of your consent and full cooperation,
I would prefer that we maintain correspondence by
email. At this point I want to assure you that your
true consent, full cooperation and confidentiality are
all that are required for us to take full advantage of
this opportunity.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours truly

David Smith.
