My name is DRANE HUDSON, the personal attorney to Dr. Timothy Mark, a national of your country who 
passed away on Tuesday the 24th of February 2004. My client, his wife and their only daughter 
,while on vacation died
due to a 6.4 magnitude earthquake as measured on the Richter scale at about 02:30am. The quake, 
which was centered just offshore from the city of Al-Hoceima a well-known fishing and tourism 
destination, on Morocco's Mediterranean coast.They also had plans to visit fes.(fes the Historical 
Since their tragic death, I have made several enquires to locate any of their relatives to come 
forward and claim his inheritance which is valued at about $5.2m USD deposited in the bank and 
property valued at between $1m to $1.3m USD. Unfortunately, all my efforts in this direction have 
been fruitless. The bank recently served a notice that my deceased client's account will be 
confiscated and diverted to other purposes if nobody comes up to stand as his next of kin due to 
dormancy ("Unclaimed Deposit") . Hence, I intensified my effort and through the web directories got 
your details and contacted you
I will therefore be glad if you can stand as the next of kin of my deceased client since both of 
you share the same lastname /surname so that the bank can release the fund to you. The fund will be 
shared in the ratio of 55% to you and 40% to me while the remaining 5% should be for expenses and 
tax as your Government may require. I wish to assure you that this transaction will follow all 
legal procedures that will protect you from any breach of the law and by this you have nothing to 
fear whatsoever.

Also I have the documents to complete the transaction. What I require is your willingness to assist 
me and to treat the transaction as confidential. Contact me for further information and 
commencement of the transaction.
Thank you for your kind co-operation
