Barr. Daniel Desouza 13 Court Street, Cambridge Stamfordhill, London N16 5AQ, U.K. Sir, I seek your permission to introduce myself and this business opportunity to you. I am Barrister Daniel Desouza. I wish to know if we can work together to accomplish a great business objective for our mutual benefit. I would like you to stand as the Next of Kin to my late client who unfortunately died in the plane crash in Nairobi Kenya Airways Flight 431 in 16,355-foot Lenana Peak on Mount Kenya, Monday July 21 2003. You will read more stories about the crash on visiting this website, http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html The deceased who was my client had no child and was divorce to his wife before his untimely death without making a will to any person as his Next of Kin. I am contacting you so that you can assist me in repatriating and securing the fund £4.5 Million (British Pounds Sterling) which he left behind in a fixed deposit account with his bank before his untimely death. Now it has been over four (4) years of the incident and the board of directors of his bank has issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to my late client who is to inherit the fund he left behind. Meanwhile, I have made several efforts to locate any of the extended relative to my late client but without success. It was for this reason that I contacted you so that I can position you as the Next of Kin to my late client to inherit the fund he left behind for our mutual benefit otherwise, the fund will be confiscated and decleared unservicable by the bank. Note that I have every proof to influence all the necessary formalities that will position/authenticate you as the true legitimate next of kin to my late client to enable you administer over the fund with his bank. We shall disburse the proceed of the account on equal right of 50% percent for you and 50% for me. I shall give you comprehensive details on how the transaction would be carried out successfully as soon as you indicate your full interest on this proposal. Best regards, Barr. Daniel Desouza 13 Court Street, Cambridge Stamfordhill, London N16 5AQ, U.K.
