Dear Friend
Greetings and compliments.

I am Patrick Joop, a solicitor at law. I was the personal attorney to
a national of your country who used to work with an oil servicing company
here in the Netherlands
thereof be referred to as my  client. Eng. Gilbert M. Reain, 62 years of
age made a fixed deposit of fund valued at USD$12,500,000 (Twelve
Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) with a Finance
Company here in Europe and 
unfortunately lost his life in an Egyptian charter plane Boeing 737 which
crashed into the Red Sea 
early on January 3 shortly after taking off from the resort of Sharm
el-Sheikh,killing all the 135 
passengers and 13 crew members aboard,Ref: (View:

He left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin except some vital documents
related to the deposit 
still in my possession.

Recently, the governing body of the Finance Company contacted me on this
matter, requesting that I should 
notify the next of kin of my late client to claim the funds and I am yet to
provide the Next of Kin to lay 
claims to the Fund. I know that my client had no living next of kin but I
went ahead and made several inquiries 
to your embassy to locate any of my late client's extended relatives but
this has proved unsuccessful. Under a 
clear and legitimate agreement with you, I seek your consent to present you
as the next of kin, so that my late 
client's fund will not be confiscated by the Finance Company.

You and I can share the money, you will be entitled to 40% of the total
fund for your role as the relative 
and next of kin of my late client, 50% for me while 10% is to be marked out
for any expenses that will beincurred 
during the clearance or process of transfer of the fund to your bank
account. Be informed that there is no risk 
involved as all necessary legal documents that will be used to back you up
as the legal beneficiary and next of 
kin of my late client will be procured.

All I require is your sincerity, honesty, co-operation and utmost goodfaith
to enable us see this deal
through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a
legitimatearrangement that will protect you 
fromany breach of the law. Kindly, get in touch with me by my e-mail( ) or
telephone to enable us discuss further. You may also send your telephone
number so that I can call you.

Do not forget that a transaction of this magnitude requires utmost
confidentiality and sincerity. I look
forward to your urgent response.
Thank you,

Barrister Patrick Joop.
