Good day. I am Barrister.Smith Adams,lawyer to late Mr.Morris Thompson who lost his life in plane crash involving Alaska Airline's Flight 261, which crashed on January 31st.2000, including his wife and only daughter. Mr. Morris Thompson aged 61 hailed from Fairbanks, Alaska in United States of America. He was one of the states's mostprominent native and business leader. All these you are very free to verify from the web link below for more information and clarification about his socio- economic status until his death; http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ Before the demise of my client, he disclosed to me his account status, which amounted to $15.5million (Fifteen million five hundred thousand america dollars). He also handed over to me some vitalcopies of documents regarding this fund already trapped at finance house in EUROPE. I was at the last burial rights on February,5th,2000 to pay my final respect to Late Mr.Morris Thompson.There I made thorough inquiries about his relatives but,discovered no one relay knows about this fund currently sited at EUROPE. Since then, I have made successive attempts to get his next of kin or relative to come forth and claim this fund but to no avail. As personal lawyer to my late client, I cannot in any way claim it unless someone overseas does so. Just two weeks ago, I received a routine notification from the finance house concerning this fund, and the officials of this firm issued a warning, stressing the urgency for late Mr. Morris Thompson's relative or next of kin to come forward to claim this fund immediately or they will have it confiscated and forwarded to the nation's treasury account as an unclaimed fund. This is the agreement they have reached at the company and they also reiterated that this is according to the comapny guidelines. MY REQUEST; Owing to the fact that his daughter whom should have stand a better chance of claiming this fund, also perished in that fatal air crash,I want you to stand in as the next of kin to late Mr. Morris Thompson.Like I earlier asserted,I have in my possession the necessary documents that will enable me to place you in,as the right beneficiary to my late client's fund in this firm.Be informed that upon successful transfer of this money into your account,you shall have 35% of it as your share. I must remind you that trust and transparency must be our watchword in the course of this transaction. I will discuss with you in details when I receive your response. Please include the following in your reply. (1.)Your Name in full. (2.)A reliable phone and Fax number (3.)Occupation (4)contact address in full. (5)Age Yours sincerelly, Barrister Smith Adams.
