Cliff & Associates
For your kind attention;

Greeting to you.

The inspiration to contact you is simply divine providence,I am making this proposition because I have to seek the partnership of a resourceful person to help me realise this project.

I am Andrew Cliff esq. a solicitor and investment consultant based in london,united kindom.I was attending a business luncheon in berlin,germany and I got introduced to the renowned german businessman and property mogul,Mr Andreas Scharanner(of blessed memory).

He engaged my services as attorney and investment consultant and my primary assignment was to spearhead his investment forays in the united kingdom.three months later I invited him to london and under my professional guidance and based on my advice he made a fixed deposit of 15,000,000,00 million pounds sterling at a financial institution. This deposit was for 12 months and upon maturity I made effort to contact my client ,I could not reach him or any member of his family.I was forced to travel to germany and there I got the tragic news that on july 25 2000, my client Mr Andreas Schranner,his wife Maria,their daughter Eich and husband christian and two children perished in the air france concorde newyork bound flight;please click here

I have made efforts to locate any member of his family with strong biological links to my late client without success.The search to find a close relation is one that has consumed time and resources.the insitution is asking me to either present a next of kin to late Andreas Schranner or forfiet the depsosit. my proposal is to package , present you as next of kin to late Andreas Schranner and process the fixed deposit and transfer custody to you for our mutual benefit.

My capacity as solicitor/investment consultant to my late client gives me the discretion to package and transfer the deposit to you. I will give you 30% for your effort,60% for me and 10% for Charity and Tsunami will amount to injustice if i do not take this decisive step to secure this deposit,and invest it. The late Schranner was also a friend in addition to our business relationship.

I will wait for your reaction and response and then together we can jumpstart this project and nurture it to reality.
Your swift response is anticipated.

Andrew Cliff esq.
