LAMIDO CAMBELL FINANCIAL CONSULTANT 63 UPLANDS DRIVE, MARKFIELD, LEICESTERSHIRE, LONDON LE67 9WF I apologize for sending this mail to you but it is theurgency of the matter that necessitated it. I would like to clarify this matter to you. My name is Mr. LamidCambell,attorney, financial consultant to late Mr.Andreas Schranner, a property magnate based here in the U.K. on the 25thof July 2000, my client, his wife maria, their daughter , her husband, and their children all died in the Air France concord 990 plane crashes over Hotelissimo on July 25,2000.They were bound for New York in their plan for a world cruise. For more information about this crash and people, visit this website:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm since then I have been managing his investments here in the U.K and on his direction liquidated these investments into cash and deposited the proceeds into his local account. My client was a successful and an accomplished family man, who made enough fortune before his untimely death. He left behind a large deposit in his investment account here. Upon his death, the bank contacted me as his financial consultant and attorney to provide them with a next of kin since the person he provided for them died with him in the crash leaving a vacuum to be filled. I had made several inquiries on my own to locate his next of kin but all has proved unsuccessful. Two weeks ago, the bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this fund within 28 working days or forfeit the money to the bank as abandoned by the owner with no trace of next of kin. The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1936 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me. I tried to locate a next of kin on my own but was not successful. In desperation I had to contact you. I believe it is by the grace of God that I am able to contact you.style="font-weight: bold;" />I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client so that you can be paid the funds left in his bank account. I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased. If you can oblige me this role, please inform me early so that the full proceed from this Bank Account valued at $12.2 Million Dollars can be paid to you. I am proposing a negotiated commission for my legal services. I have all the required information and shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up our claim all I require is your honest co-operation to enable us realise this deal through. style="font-weight: bold;">I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Trust me as his personal consultant that this is a risk-free transaction. Please get back to me immediately. I will bring you into a more detailed picture of this transaction when I hear from you.
