Brian Herman Esq.(For Trustees) 2 Harewood Place Hanover Square London W1S 1BX email@example.com Notification of Bequest. Dear , On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Mr. Jonathan Lambert , I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter was returned undelivered. I hereby attempt to reach you again by this same email address. I wish to notify you that my late client made you a beneficiary to his WILL because you have the same last name with him. He left the sum of Five Million One Hundred Thousand Dollars(USD$5,100.000.00) to you in the codicil and last testament to his will. This may sound strange and unbelievable to you since none of his family member seems to know you, but it is real and true. Being a widely travelled man, he must have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were nominated to him by one of his numerous friends abroad who wished you good. My Client until his death was a member of the Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical Engineers. He was a very dedicated Christian who loved to give out. His great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his life time. Late Mr. Jonathan Lambert died on the 16th day of February 2006 at the age of 90 years,and his WILL is now ready for execution. According to him this money is to help the poor and the needy. Please if I reach you as I am hopeful,endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job. I hope to hear from you in no distant time. Yours in His service, Brian Herman Esq.(For Trustees)
