Dear Friend,
I am  Barrister Richard Vain  ,A solicitor at Law, and the personal attorney to late Mr.lee Green. 
I have an urgent and very profitable business proposition for you that should be handled with 
extreme confidentiality.
On January 12,2000 a  Consultant,and contractor with the British Water Corporation Mr.Lee Green  by 
name made a numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at US$20.9M (Twenty 
Million,Nine Hundred thousand United States Dollars Only) in a Financial and Security Company. Upon 
maturity they sent a routine notification in accordance with the Company policy to his forwarding 
address but got no reply. After a month they sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his 
contract mployers British Water Corporation that Mr. Green died in the AF4590 France concord plane 
crash bound for New York in their plan for a world cruise on Monday 31 July, 2000.

   On further investigation, i found out that he died without making a Will and all attempts to 
trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigations and discovered that 
Mr.Lee Green did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents including 
his Bank Deposit paperwork in the Financial and Security Company.
This sum of US$20.9M i understand was kept in the Financial and Security Company for safekeeping to 
enable him have direct and immediate access to the funds for a contract that he intend to execute.

 No one will ever come forward to claim it and according to the Law of my country, at the 
expiration of 6 years the money will revert to the ownership of the British Government, if nobody 
applies to claim the fund. I decided to contact you to assist me receive his money for safe keeping 
and investments on his behalf as everything will be taken over by the British Government as 
provided in section 129 sub 63(N), British Banking Edit of 1961.
This prompted me to contact you.I want to front you as the next of kin and beneficiary to the late 
client thereby making you the legal beneficiary of the sum of $20.9 million U.S Dollars that is 
presently in the Financial and Security Company.

 I contacted you because it will be very easy for the Financial and Security Company to believe 
since they know me as his Lawyer and moreover i am working with a key member of the Financial and 
Security Company.
The transaction is 100% legal and totally free of risks as all modalities has been perfected to 
ensure the hitch free success of the transaction. I have also decided that you will generously be 
entitled to 30% of the total amount. Upon my receipt of your reply confirming your willingness to 
assist me of this transaction, I will immediately arrange and transfer all the rights of ownership 
of this fund to your name to facilitate your easy clearance and transfer of the complete funds to 
your country.

proper documentation. If you are interested, send all possible suggestions and interest to it to my
