Dear Sir,

I hope this meets you in good health. My name is Antonio Rodrigo a
legal practitioner and Attorney to late Mr. Harley Grahams  who died in the
Madrid bomb Blast of  March 11th, 2004.

My late client was an influential wealthy businessman, a British
Contractor and a big time Oil dealer and the Principal owner of Oil Alliance
Company and he left behind a substantial amount of millions of money
with a Security and Finance company here in Madrid Spain which I can not
disclose over the internet for security reasons.

Since he is dead and  no trace to any of his relatives living or dead
after all the efforts I have made in the past few years, I want you to 
stand as my late client's next of kin/beneficiary in Madrid-Spain to
claim the cash deposit.

I have employed every means possible to locate any of my client's
extended relatives (next of kin) but this exercise has proved unsuccessful.
After the death of my client the manager of the company have made
several contacts to me, as his Attorney to provide his next of kin who 
should inherit the deposited fund.

The Directors of the Security and Finance company where the fund is
currently been deposited adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide
his next of kin for the payment of this money or forfeit the money to
the company.

The company had planned to invoke a clause in the property Act, to
confiscate the funds after the expiration of a period given to me.
Despairing and at the point of desperation, I came across your name and
contact, while trying to locate documentation's regarding possible relatives
of my client. Convinced that you may be able to act in locus for my late
client as his next of kin, I therefore, decided to contact you with
these facts before me because of the status quo. By virtue of my brief and
my closeness to the deceased, I am very much aware of my client's
financial standing, which he operated here in Madrid-Spain.

I have reasoned very professionally and I felt it would be legally
proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client and the sole
beneficiary of the cash deposit with itÃââs accrued interest. The rest
is between you and I and with my guide we can have you claim this fund 
by standing as the next of kin to my late client, once this is done we 
shall both share the funds at the ratio that will be acceptable by both
of us.

I shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to
back up our claim. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable
us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the

 Please get in touch with me and reply this letter as soon as possible.
