Dear Friend

Greetings and compliments.
I am Patrick Joop, a solicitor at law. I was the personal attorney to Eng.
Gilbert M. Reain, a national of your country who used to 
work with an oil servicing company here in the Netherlands thereof be
referred to as my client. Eng. Gilbert M. Reain, 62 years 
of age made a fixed deposit of fund valued at USD$12,500,000 (Twelve
Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) 
with a Finance Company here in Europe and unfortunately lost his life in an
Egyptian charter plane Boeing 737 which crashed into 
the Red Sea early on January 3 shortly after taking off from the resort of
Sharm el-Sheikh, killing all the 135 passengers and 13 crew 
members aboard, Ref: (View:

Next of Kin except some vital documents related to the deposit still in my
Recently, the governing body of the Finance Company contacted me on this
matter, requesting that I should notify the next of kin of 
my late client to claim the funds and I am yet to provide the Next of Kin
to lay claims to the Fund. I know that my client had no living 
next of kin but I went ahead and made several inquiries to your embassy to
locate any of my late client's extended relatives but this has proved
unsuccessful. Under a clear and legitimate agreement with you, I seek your
consent to present you as  the next of kin, so that my late 
client's fund will not be confiscated by the Finance Company.
You and I can share the money, you will be entitled to 40% of the total
fund for your role as the relative and next of kin of my late 
client, 50% for me while 10% is to be marked out for any expenses that will
be incurred during the clearance or process of transfer of the 
fund to your bank account. Be informed that there is no risk involved as
all necessary legal documents that will be used to back you up as the
legal beneficiary and next of kin of my late client will be procured.
All I require is your sincerity, honesty, co-operation and utmost good
faith to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will 
be executed undera legitimate arrangement that will protect you from  any
breach of the law. Kindly, get in touch with me by 
my e-mail ( ) or telephone to enable us discuss
further. You may also send your telephone number so that I can call you.

Do not forget that a transaction of this magnitude requires utmost
confidentiality and sincerity. I look forward to your urgent response.
