This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such. I am Graham 
Bash,a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr Norbert Anthony, 
hereinafter referred to as 'my client' who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country and 
who died in a car crash with his immediate family on the 4th of oct,2000. Since the death of my 
client in oct,2000, I have written several letters to the embassy with an intent to locate any of 
his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and 
all such efforts have been to no avail.

Moreso,I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting a likely proceeding for 
confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank in which my 
client deposited the sum of 9.8 million U.S.D.On this note i decided to search for a credible 
person and finding that you bear a similar last name, I decided to contact you, that I may,with 
your consent, present you to the "trustee" bank as my late client's surviving family member so as 
to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of my client. 

I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you bear a similar last name with my client making 
it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity.I propose that 65% of the net sum will 
accrue to you at the conclusion of this deal in so far as I do not incur further expenses. 
Therefore, to facilitate the immediate transfer of this fund, you need, first to contact me via 
signifying your interest and as soon as I obtain your confidence,I will immediately appraise you 
with the complete details as well as fax you the documents, with which you are to proceed and i 
shall direct on how to put up an application to the bank. 

However, you will have to assent to an express agreement which I will forward to you in order to 
bind us in this transaction. Upon the reciept of your reply,I will send you by fax or E-mail the 
next step to take.I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that 
you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion 
of this transfer. Like I have implied, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. 

Best regards, 

Barr. Graham Bash.
