Dear, I am James Roberts,an attorney to Mr Grant Woods,a wealthy businessman who died with his farmily(wife and two of his kids) in a ghastly motor accident here in the UK 3years ago. When he was writing his will, he disclosed to me about a fixed deposit of GP5.2Million with a bank here in Uk,with orders on how it should be shared between his wife and kids. I am now seeking your permission to stand as next of kin to this man Since it is the Law in Great Britain that at the expiration of Six years, the funds will be marked unclaimable and reverted to the ownership of the British Government account because all efforts made by the bank to get any of his relatives to come and claim this money proofed abortive. If you are interested please reply me so that I will educate you on how I have planned to execute this transaction and also discuss on how we are going to share the funds. Best Wishes James Roberts
