Dear Sir/Madam, I am pleased to introduce a business opportunity to you, I hope you will not be embarrassed receiving this letter as we have not had previous correspondences on this. I decided to contact you based on the clearance and assurance I got from source that linked me to you. I hope you will not impede the trust and confidence I repose in you. In brief introduction, I am Barrister Jeff Marcos, a solicitor at law, personal attorney / financial adviser to Late Mr. HARUNA AHEMED, who died along with his wife On 11 March 2004, Madrid train bombings. The reason for sending this letter to you is very fundamental to the doctrine of human privileges and right. Mr. HARUNA AHEMED has a Textiles Company here in Spain, before his death, he deposited a huge amount of money USD$ 14.000.000, 00 (Fourteen Million United State Dollars) with one of the Security/Finance Company Here in Madrid. Since after his death, I have made several enquiries to United State Embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client, so that you can be paid the funds as you have the same Family name with the deceased. May I at this point emphasize that this transaction is 100% risk free. As the personal attorney/ financial adviser to Late Mr. HARUNA AHEMED, I have with me all the documents regarding the deposit of the funds. I have made all arrangements for a successful transaction; I am only waiting for your reply.

Please you have been advised to keep this a top secret. I will be monitoring the whole situation here All other necessary information will be sent to you on your acceptance to champion this transaction with me. I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal. For confidentiality reasons, kindly reply to my mail, and hope to hear from you.
