My Dear,
I write to seek your services in a private confidential matter regarding the late Mr Donald Wright 
who died leaving some funds unclaimed in our bank without any beneficiary i am aware that you might 
not be related to him but I want you to stand as the beneficiary and I will fill you in since I 
have all the details for the transfer proper. This requires a private arrangement.

Could you perhaps be able to receive these funds under legal claims then I will fill you in all the 
informations. I am willing to pay a generous management and transfer fees and your participation 
25% . I will need you in a legal capacity to stand as his beneficiary. 

I have all the details and will fill you in if you are really willing to assist me in claiming this 
funds in to your private account in your country. Your major role would be to open a bank account 
where the funds will be transferred, for now. The funds in question are quite large (about $22.2M). 
I will expect a straight answer from you. Yes or no. If yes, then let's work out the modalities and 
a brief profile of your person is expected. 
with anticipation.
Richard Kone.
