Dear Sir/Madam,
First and foremost I would like to apologize for infringing on your
privacy by sending you an unsolicited email, I decided to contact you via
an email to get us acquainted since it is a safer way of private
communication. If you must know, I came about your contact information
through a chamber of commerce and industry directory on the Internet while
trying to locate any link to my deceased client.
I am Charles Greens an attorney at law. A deceased client of mine, by
name Mr. Edwards J. Donald, who were in after shall be referred to as my
client, died as a result of heart related illness in November 1999.
I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind by
my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the
finance company where this deposit valued at US$16.400, 000.00 Dollars is
lodged. This finance company has issued me a notice to contact the next
of kin, or the account will be confiscated and the fund remitted to the
Federal Reserve. My proposition to you is to seek your consent to
present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client; so that
the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then we can share the
amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage.
All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin
will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us
see this transaction through.
This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from any breach of the law. If this business proposition offends
your moral values, do accept my apology. Please contact me at once to
indicate your interest.
Best regards,
Barrister Charles Greens
