Dear Friend,

Greetings and compliments.

   I am Patrick Joop, a solicitor at law. I was the personal attorney to
Eng. Gilbert M. Reain, a national of your country who used to work with an
oil servicing company here in the Netherlands thereof be referred to as my
client. Eng. Gilbert M. Reain, 62 years of age made a fixed deposit of fund
valued at USD$12,500,000 (Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars Only) with a Finance Company here in Europe and unfortunately
lost his life in an Egyptian charter plane Boeing 737 which crashed into the
Red Sea early on January 3 shortly after taking off from the resort of Sharm
el-Sheikh, killing all the 135 passengers and 13 crew members aboard, Ref:
He left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents
related to the deposit still in my possession. Recently, the governing body
of the Finance Company contacted me on this matter, requesting that I should
notify the next of kin of my late client to claim the funds and I am yet to
provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the Fund. I know that my client had
no living next of kin but I went ahead and made several inquiries to your
embassy to locate any of my late client's extended relatives but this has
proved unsuccessful. Under a clear and legitimate agreement with you, I seek
your consent to present you as the next of kin, so that my late client's
fundS will not be confiscated by the Finance Company.

You and I can share the money, you will be entitled to 40% of the total
fund for your role as the relative and next of kin of my late client, 50%
for me while 10% is to be map out for any expenses that will be incurred
during the clearance or process of transfer of the fund to your bank
account. Be informed that there is no risk involved as all necessary legal
documents that will be used to back you up as the legal beneficiary and
next of kin of my late client will be procured.

All I require is your sincerity, honesty, co-operation and utmost good
faith 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 law. Kindly, get in touch with me by my e-mail (
or telephone to enable us discuss further. You may also send your telephone
number so that I can call you.

Do not forget that a transaction of this magnitude requires utmost
confidentiality and sincerity. I look forward to your urgent response.

Thank you,

Patrick Joop.
