I know this email may come to you as a surprise, Please know that I am writing you with utmost 
confidentiality and I hope you treat this email as such. My name is Mr. James Olsen and I was 
privileged to serve as the legal adviser and investment officer of my deceased client who lost his 
life sometime ago. 
In the process of review of his bank financial reports it was discovered that he left the sum of 
3.8Milion Great British Pound Sterlings INTESTATE . Upon enquiry for his kins I discovered that 
you are related to him as well as shared a common last names, hence my contacting you so that I can 
give you further briefing on my intention and how to go about the facilitation and disbursement of 
the estate he left behind. I will most appreciate your prompt response, as that would enable us to 
start something immediately.

kind Regards,
James Olsen.
