Attention! Sequel to your non-response to our earlier letter to you on behalf of the Trustees and Executors to the WILL of our late client. I wish to notify you that you were found a good replacement to lay claim to the total sum of £14,550,000.00 GBP (fourteen million Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand British Pounds) in the codicil and last testament of the deceased. First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction; this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all is risk free.I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction, as I have been reliably informed of your discreetness. I came to know you in my private search for reliable and reputable person to handle this confidential transaction; you were found a good replacement as stated above. Until his death he was a major share holder in big companies which include textile and construction companies. He was a very great philanthropist during his life time. He died on 9th January 2004 at the age of 48. According to Doctor's report, he was poisoned and this led to excess internal bleeding, and was traced to his wife whom he got married to in less than a year before he died. And the wife ran away with £1,000,000.00 (one million pounds) not aware of this said amount. In her complaint, she accused her late husband of unfaithfulness. He was buried on the 3rd of February 2004. Though he was a foreigner living and working here, he requested before he died that he would be buried here, in his words, "I regard here as my home and the people as my people". Till now no next of kin or relative of any kind has come for the claim and the Bank has contacted me being his attorney while he was alive to provide next of kin or any relative for the claim. All this I did to no avail. We therefore reckoned that you can receive these funds as you are qualified by your name identity. All the legal documents will be processed on your response to this mail. In your acceptance of this deal, we request that you kindly forward your current telephone and fax numbers and forwarding address to us, and this will enable us contact you if urgent conversation is needed.Issue of confidentiality is expected to be adhered to while this transaction is in progress. At this juncture, I look forward to receiving your urgent response and thank you very much now for accepting this offer with good faith. Regards, Yours Faithfully, Attorney Peter Williams.
