Dear Sir,

My name is Grace Smith; I am 24 years old, from London-England, where I school and work as a fashion designer for part time job after my school. I am the only daughter of my parents my father died on a fatal auto accident on his way to see my sick mother at the hospital where she was admitted for Cancer treatments, she also die when she heard about the death of my father in same day at hospital.

Before the death of my father, he had Willed part of his Real Estate Business, Gas Stations and a total sum of £50,700,000.00(Fifty Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling) to me. Since his death things has become very hard for me paying my school fees, putting food on the table and taking care of my other needs which the fashion designer work I do as a part time work after my school can’t help. I went to the bank where my late father deposited the funds on my behalf to withdraw money to take care of myself and pay for my school fees and other bills.

I was shocked when the Bank Manager explained to me that I will  not be able to draw from the deposited money, because my father had putting a clause on the Will,which he used in depositing the funds with them, saying that before i will be given access to the money, i will either have to be 30 years old or I will be given access to the money, if i get married before the age of 30 , in which case, my husband will be legible to collect the money on my behalf by standing in as my late fathers next of kin to claim the deposited funds on my behalf.

Presently i am only 24 years old. And I have no access to the money till I'm 30 years. So, I’m contacting you to stand as my husband and claim this fund on my behalf if you are married already, you can still help me by standing in as my late fathers next of kin to the deposited funds. So, please get back to me as to know how you will be remunerated as i will part with 40% of the total sum £50,700,000.00 (Fifty Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling),while 10% will be mapped out for any expenses that we're to use to receive the money from the deposited Bank.

Please remember that I am writing you this email purely on the ground of trust so we can achieve this deal together. This transaction will last for two weeks after you get back to me on how serious you are to claim these funds on my behalf.

Please reply to my alternative E-mail:

Yours Truly,
Grace Smith
