 Dear Sir/Madam.
   I am Barrister Bashar Ahmed a personal attorney/sole executor to the
late Engr Charles M chuo, a nationality of your country hereinafter
referred to as” my client". I represent the interest of my late client
killed with his entire family in a fatal motor accident in East London
on November 5, 2002.and I will like to negotiate the terms of
investment of resources available to him. My late client, a formal
Contractor working with the Emirates Council of Dubai, had left behind
a deposit of Twelve Million Eight Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars only ($12.8million) with a finance company here in Dubai. The
said fund originated from contract transactions he executed in his
registered area of business. Just after his death, I was contacted by
the finance company reasons been that his last Will and Testament
contains a residuary clause, giving his personal attorney express
authority to nominate the beneficiary to his funds. in such a case
where the original Depositor had died.
Well I reasoned very professionally and resolved to use a legal means to
retrieve my late client's abandoned funds. That is to present a next of
kin of my deceased client to the bank. This is legally possible and would
be done in accordance with the laws of the land. On this note I decided to
search for a credible person and from the same country, I was urged to
contact you, that I may, with your consent, present you to the "trustee"
as my late client's 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 are of the same nationality  with
my late client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that
capacity. I have all vital documents that would confer you the legal right
to make this claim and would make them available to you so that the
proceeds of this bank account valued at $12.8million can be paid to you
before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this
huge amount is lodged.
Then we talk percentage. I know you may be afraid about this offer  and
how i came to know you but note that after a little search and check my
instinct tells me to contact you. Can I trust you on this? I shall
assemble all the necessary documents that will be used to back up your
claim.I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. 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. As I said,I require only a solemn
confidentiality on this.
Please get in touch with me by my alternative for better confidentiality and send
to me your telephone and fax numbers to enable us discuss further on this
transaction.Thanks for your understanding.

Kind Regards.
Bashar Saleh Ahmed esq
