I am Barrister John Brown, an attorney at law at John Brown Associates. A
deceased client of mine whose name is the same last name with you, who
here in after shall be referred to as my client, died as the result of a
heart-related condition on the 11 November 2001. His heart condition was
due to the death of all the members of his family in the Gulf Air Flight
Crashes in Persian.

I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind by my
client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank
where this deposit valued at Seventy Five million dollars (US$75 million
dollars) is lodged. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next
of kin, or the account will be confiscated.

 My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the
next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, since you have the same
last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.  Then
we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. All legal
documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin will be
provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
transaction through.

This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you
from many breach of the law.  If this business proposition offends your
moral values, do accept my apology. I must use this opportunity to implore
you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinary
confidential, whatever your decision, while I await your prompt response.
Please contact me at once to indicate your interest. I will like you to
acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible via my private
EMAIL :( and treat with absolute
confidentiality and sincerity. I look forward to your quick reply.

Best regards,
Barrister John Brown
Attorney at Law
