FROM: MR. CHRISTOS JONA PEPPOS 14 GREAT ALEXANDER STREET, TOXOTES XANTHI NORTHERN GREECE T.T.671OO(VERY CONFIDENTAIL) Attention: My Good Friend I am MR Christos J Peppos,a professional charttered account. I work with one of the largest Investment Company here in Cyprus, Greece. Basically, we are into Fund Management and Portfolio Investments. My Deceased Client Willie Jackson Sr., 61 years, of Scotch Plains, USA, made a Deposit of Investment Fund valued at ???? (amount not disclosed now for security reasons) with a Bank in London United Kingdom and unfortunately lost his life aboard Egypt Air Flight 990, which crashed into the Atlantic Ocean onOctober 31,1999 (View:http://news.bbc.co. uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503.stm) and left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin as he has not completed all of his investment paper works with my company. As the Fund Manager of the deceased, I have the file of the deceased that contains his investmentinstructions, so the bank is unaware that the deceased does not state his next of kin. Usually, it is our policy to commence investment for client when our investment-receiving bank receives their payments. Under a clear and legitimate agreement with you, I shall present you as the next of Kin, to claim the fund, so that the bank or Government will not confiscate the Fund. Should you be willing to work with me, do send your name and contact address, phone no. (email@example.com) I will get back to you for more details. Best Regards Mr. Christos Jona Peppos.
