Dear Friend,

My name is Dr. Carlos Beto, a solicitor at-law; I am the personal
attorney to one of my late clients Mr. Wayne, he worked with a
multinational Oil & Gas company here in United Arab Emirates and shares the
same last name with you.

In summer 2001, Mr. Wayne, his wife and their three children were
involved in an auto-crash in France before returning to Dubai on a
holiday trip. Unfortunately, all occupants that were traveling onboard the SUV
lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to his embassy to
locate any of his extended relatives and this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last
name over the Internet, to locate any exact matched surname and that
was how I found your contact email address.

My deceased client had an account balance with a bank valued at about
8.9million, I have contacted you to assist in receiving the money left
behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable
by the bank and I have been issued a notice as his attorney to provide
his next of kin or have the account confiscated.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating my client's relatives; I now
seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of my deceased
client since you have the same last name so that the proceeds of his account
8.9million can be paid to you. You and I can then share the money 60%
to me and 40% for you. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us
seeing this project through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a
legitimate/risk-free arrangement that will protect you and me from any
breach of the law.

I await your positive response that MUST include your private telephone
number; I will call to discuss this matter if it interests you. Be
advised to reply strictly via my private email address:

Best regards
Dr.Carlos Beto Esq.
