Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Peter Bryant, Senior Manager based and working in Europe,working in one
of the leading finance houses and I happen to have managed a particular account
for Mr X[REAL NAME WITHELD],here in the United Kingdom, who died Interstate,leaving
in our care a sizable amount in a domiciliary United States Dollars Investment
For some reason this client does not have an easily identifiable next of Kin and
I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients relatives;immediate and
extended,this has proved unsuccessful,hence  I am contacting you "based on the fact
that you have similar names".I need your assistance in securing the money and property
left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the
Finance House.The Finance House has already issued a Government Mandatory formality
notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the account confiscated and this should expire
within a month.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of his relatives for over two years and
convinced that no one is coming up and satisfied the mandatory legal requirement of
Beneficiary/next of kin Notification, I now seek a Reliable and Trustworthy person,
with your consent and perfect understanding, to present you as the next of kin of the
deceased so that the proceeds of this account initially valued at Twenty One Million,
Three Hundred And Twenty Thousand United States Dollars,interest not inclusive, can
be paid into an account to be provided by you as the perceived Next Of Kin Legally and
All I require is your honest cooperation and confidence in me;which I know would not
come easy.I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate background that
will protect you from any breach of the law.I would advise that you give this proposal
a positive consideration and get back to me asap.I'll be flexible and considerate in
the percentage share that will be given to you for your assistance.
Upon receipt of your response we will exchange contact information so that we can reach
each other for further discussions.
Please reach me on my private email for      

Peter Bryant
