Attn: Trusted Deal.

Dear Partner,
Good day, Firstly, I apologize for sending you this sensitive information
via e-mail instead of a Certified mail/Post-mail. This is due to the
urgency and importance of the information. Hence, this letter to you. I
humbly crave your indulgence to read this e-mail with all seriousness of
purpose devoid of any doubt in your mind because this project is based on
Trust, Confidentiality and Sincerity of purpose in order to have an
acceptable meeting of the minds. I am a forty five (45) years old
established American Lawyer. My client who was Michael Keogh (Now
deceased) hereinafter shall be referred to as
 "My Client."

3years years ago, my client successfully executed a contract for the
Federal Government worth $14.3 million dollars. A part payment of
$6.million dollars was paid to my client, while the balance of $8.3million
Dollars was still unpaid before my client died. However, all my efforts to
locate the possible next of kin proved abortive.

Until his sudden demise, He was not married and was 44years old. Now he
crux of this E-LETTER is that the Federal Government is fully paying
all contractors who have successfully executed their contracts. My client
is among those due to be paid in this second quarter payment schedule. As
his personal attorney before his sudden death, I have been officially
notified and instructed to forward particulars of my client's next of kin
so that he/she can be paid the outstanding $8.3Million dollars.

I know he did not leave any valid WILL because he died intestate. This
fund will therefore be paid to whosoever I present to his bank [CITIBANK
LONDON] as the possible next of kin. In a nutshell, I intend tochannel
this fund to the account of a clever but reliable person who upon
successful payment of the money will earn 50% thereof, while 50% will be
for me. Your nationality does not matter as all modalities have been
perfected and put in place to pay whoever I present as the next of kin.

This transaction will take about 8 working days only to conclude as soon
as you indicate your interest. For prompt action, contact me urgently by
email through [] I shall role out the modalities
for the actualization of this project as soon as I receive your response.
Please, do accord this transaction the confidentiality it deserves.

Best Regards,
Attorney Eric Thompson. (Principal Partner)
US Attorney @ Law. Esq.

NB: You don't have to be a blood relative of my client to claim this
inheritance. Please reply so that I can elucidate on how to proceed.
