Good Day,

Please permit me to introduce myself to you, I am Michael
Mansfield, a  Legal Practitioner,Tooks chambers in London,
United Kingdom.

I got your contact from the UK Chambers of Commerce and
Trade,and I  have decided to contact you so that we can
carry out this mutually  beneficial business transaction.

My late Client Engr.Vergara Geronimo,until his death
deposited a total  of US$5.5M with a Bank in London,United
Kingdom. He was a Director with Shell Petroleum Development
Company in Gabon, Western Africa.

Since I am the personal attorney to Vergara Geronimo, he
gave me  the custody of the deposit documents,and as such
entrusted me with the Legal Rights to transfer and execute
this deposit to any Next of Kin after his demise.I have
since tried to locate any Next of Kin to my late client without
success, hence I decided to contact you so that you can rightfully
stand as the next of kin to inherit the deposited sum.

This is a staggering sum,and I need a reliable person to
help me with necessary arrangements to transfer the
deposited sum out of the United  Kingdom. By virtue of my position as
an Attorney, I will arrange the  documents in your name so that
you can rightly apply as a Next of Kin  to Late client in a
capacity of a Family Friend. You will be entitled  to 40% of the total sum
should you be willing to assist me in this business transaction, and I
will get the remaining 60%.

I will prepare a formal agreement to guide us in this transaction for
accountability purpose. Please contact me through my
private email box as soon as possible so that we can start
processing the documents.

I look forward to hearing from you in my private.

Yours truly,
Barr. Michael Mansfield QC
