Falcon Chambers UK Falcon Court London EC4Y Contact Person:Atty.Kirk Reynolds QC Alternative Email:email@example.com Dear Mr.Tariq, My Name is Kirk Reynolds QC. I am a solicitor with Falcon Chambers of EC4Y 1AA Falcon Court London, UK and personal attorney to Engr. Ali Tariq ( the President Transfield Worley Company ) Who died with his family in the July, 2000 Air France crash. For your confirmations visit: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm Although my client left no record of any next of kin but I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives which had proved unsuccessful. As a matter of fact, he had a fixed time deposit of £2,500,000.00 (two million and five hundred pounds sterling) with a finance house here in United Kingdom and stocks worth £3,257,000.00 (with unclaimed dividends) being managed by his stockbrokers. Consequently, the Finance house has issued me a notice to provide my client next of kin or have the fund liquidated within a short time. Based on my unsuccessful search for his relatives for the past five years now and for the fact that you bear the same last name with my late client, I therefore seek your consent to present you as the next of kin/inheritor to my deceased client, so that the money will be transferred to your account for us to share upon approval. As his personal Attorney I have all the legal documents and all it takes to back-up this claims and to convincingly present you to the bank as the next of kin to my late client without trouble. All I require is your honest cooperation. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement. And no government involvement at all. For more information about me please visit the chambers' Website;http://www.falcon-chambers.co.uk/members/member.cfm?id=153 I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Kirk Reynolds QC
