Subject Matter: Invitation To Act As Next Of Kin 


I presume this letter will come to you as a surprise, but  as things 
unfold,we will know each other better. I will start by introducing myself to 
you.My name is Thomas Cole a solicitor at law. I am writing in respect of a 
foreigner Mr Richard Burson,who happens to be my client an oil merchant and 
contractor who perished in a plane crash of  31st October 1999[WITH EGYPTIAN 
AIRLINE 990] with other passengers aboard  as you can confirm it yourself 
through the website below. 

Since the demise of my client  I personally have watched with keen interest 
to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to 
claim his funds of US$28.5m(Twenty Eight Million Five Hundred  Thousand 
United States Dollar) and all the relevant documents in the  bank has no 
record of any next of kin. On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name 
shall be used as his next of kin so I have contacted you to assist in 
repatriating most especially, the money left behind by my client before they 
get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where the huge 
deposits were lodged. 

Particularly, the Equity Development Bank Plc where the deceased had an 
account valued at about Usd28.5 million dollars has issued me a notice to 
provide the Next of kin, or have the account confiscated. 

I seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin of the deceased since 
I read your profile I know you can assist me as I need somebody who is 
trustworthy and willing to assist me get the funds transfered.Whcih the 
account which my late client operate is valued at Usd28.5 million dollars 
can be paid to you, as my clients Next of Kin, and then we can share the 
amount on a mutual agreed percentage. 

All legal documents to back up your claim as the deceased Next of Kin will 
be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this 
deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under al egitimate 
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law and you should 
endeavor to keep it confidential. 

Please get in touch with me at, to enable us discuss 
further about this transaction. 

Best regards, 
Barrister Thomas Cole.
