Dear Sir/Madam,

I am compelled to write you this email for the following reason:- 

One of my clients who is now deceased, in His Will, left for someone who bears your name his entire 
Estate and Cash deposit valued Thirty one million and Three hundred thousand dollars 

The truth is that, l do not know if you are the beneficiary or not. For two years now, l have tried 
effortlessly to locate the name on the will without success hence l have contacted you. Can you 
please get back to me urgently if you are capable of investing this fund for any profitable 
ventures in your domain, contact me for further explanation. 

You can reach me at 

Attorney Godfrey Williams
