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
servicing company here in the Netherlands thereof be referred to as my
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
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

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

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

several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my late client's
extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. Under a clear and

agreement with you, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin,
so that my late client's fund will not be confiscated by the Finance
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 marked 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.
