Dear Friend, I wish to accost you with a request that would be of immense benefit to both of us. Being an executor of wills, it is possible that we may be tempted to make fortune out of our client's situations, when we cannot help it, or left with no better option. The issue I am presenting to you is a case of my client who did not will a fortune to any next-of-kin.I am now faced with who to pass the fortune to. According to the English law,the fortune is supposed to be bequeathed to the government if unclaimed.However,I don't belong to that school of thought which proposes that the fortune of unlucky people be given to the government.My purpose of contacting you is to seek your acting as the beneficiary of the money,and lay claims the legacy of $12.4million, which this unfortunate client of mine bequeathed to no next-of-kin. For now, I alone know about this money. Everything will be left between you and I to share between us. I would want to takecare of the needy and less privileged,as this is my primary objective. All I have to do is to make you the beneficiary to the $12.4 million legacy.Again, I feel that you may be apprehensive and consider this amount too big for you to defend. It does not matter, as there are documents to back it up. Thanks and God bless. Sincerely yours, Mr Frank Badu.
