I am Mr. Charles Brown, a Canadian attorney based in 
Manchester, United Kingdom and the personal attorney to Late Mr. Mark 
Michelle, a French National. Late Mr. Mark Michelle until his untimely 
death was a private oil consultant/contractor with the British 
Petroleum Company, herein after shall be referred to as my client. 
On 21st April 2000, my client and his wife with their three children 
were involved in a ghastly auto crash; all occupants of the vehicle 
unfortunately lost their lives. Since then, I have made several 
enquiries with his countrys' embassies to locate any of my clients 
extended relatives. After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to 
personally contact you with this business partnership proposal. 
deceased had a deposit valued presently at Eighteen Million United 
states dollars and the company has issued me a notice to provide his 
next of kin or beneficiary. Having been unsuccessful in locating any of 
my late client relatives for over two (2) years now. I am now seeking 
your consent to present you as the next of 
kin/beneficiary to the 
deceased so that the proceeds of this account  can be paid to you. 
have worked out modalities for achieving my aim of appointing a next of 
kin as well as transferring the money abroad for us to share in the 
ratio of 50% for me and 35% for you, and we shall collectively donate 
10% to the Tsunami relief course while 5% will be set aside for any 
incurable expenses both local and international. 
The money transfer 
paperwork itself will include a certificate of origin so that the 
receiving bank does not ask questions. Also the paperwork will include 
proper certificate that the fund being transferred is from non-criminal 
sources. In short this will be a proper and legal money transfer with 
no risk involved. The transaction is guaranteed to succeed without any 
problem. All I need is your trust and confidence. Provide me with these 
1. Your contact phone and fax numbers.
2. Location 

As soon as I hear from you, I shall provide you with further 
clarification that you may need to know. 
Best wishes, 

Mr. Charles
