Dear Friend,

Greetings and compliments.

   I am Mr Andrew Joseph, 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: (View: 

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,

Mr Andrew Joseph
