Hello Friend,
Hope you are doing great and sound? I am  Barry Elliot  Barrister at law and attorney to late Sir 
Mark Stephanopoulos, a Greek Merchant otherwise known as my client who was based in the United 
Kingdom and died of complications from injuries sustained after a ghastly motor accident. 
As the attorney to Sir Mark Stephanopoulos I was his confidant as he shared with me virtually 
everything about himself, his business and family. I was his attorney for 15years and during that 
period I wrote his WILL and was also named as the executor, which has since been fulfilled. I am 
also aware due to my closeness to him that the amount Ten Million Pounds he deposited with a bank 
in Europe was not willed out. He told me about this on his sick bed and even instructed that I 
should prepare a codicil to that effect, however before I could finish my work he  died. 
After his death, funeral and subsequent execution of his will I went into action to ascertain the 
information passed unto me by my client. My investigation conformed to the information; at that 
point I knew I had to do something to move the funds out of the bank and knowing that I cannot do 
this alone I have decided to contact you and seek your assistance and acceptance to be the next of 
kin to the estate.
Aside my humble self and you, the relationship manager (account officer) of my client knows about 
this, for he was very helpful during my discreet investigation, through him I was able to see the 
deposit paper work of the money which confirmed that there is no next of kin to the funds. It is 
necessary for us to move the money out of the bank on time because if we do not do this within the 
next two years the bank would regard the money as Lundry funds, which would give them the 
right to claim the money. 
I cannot move the money in my name because he is my client, for it could look suspicious, his 
account officer cannot do the same, hence the importance of your assistance. Have my assurance that 
there is nothing to fear about, as we also need your assurance that you would work with me without 
fear or favour to achieve our desired objective. The legal back up is no problem for I would be 
responsible. Since the codicil was not ready before his death, letter of administration without 
Will would be secured from the probate office, with this letter I would personally apply on your 
behalf to the bank for the release of the funds to you.
What I require from you to enable us achieve the above are your; 

Date of Birth 
Telephone and Fax numbers 
Upon receipt of a confirmation of acceptance from you a sharing ratio would be worked out between 
the three of us and communicated to you along with my telephone the light of above, your 
positive responses would be appreciated through my email :(  ) 

Take care and have a nice day.
Barry Elliot
