Dear Partner, I wish to intimate you with a request that would be of immense Benefit to both of us. Being an executor of wills, Codicil and Administration of Estate, it is possible that we may be tempted to make fortune out of our client's situations when we cannot help it, or left with no better option. I am Barrister philips moore, The issue I presenting to you is a case of my client Mr.Pajares Luis Caceres (An Australia National) a consultant /contractor with Gulf Maritime General Trading & contracting Company) who WILLED a fortune to his next-of-kin.t was most unfortunate that he and his next-of-kin died on the same day in an auto crash of Tuesday 10 February 2004. I am now faced with the Task of who to pass the fortune to. According to the Irish law, the fortune is supposed to be bequeathed to the Government. However, I don't belong to that school of thought which proposes that the fortune of unlucky people be given to theGovernment. My client made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit, valued at(7,500,000.00) Seven Million, Five Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling’s only, for twelve (12) calendar months with Ulster Bank Ltd, Ballincollig Cork, Ireland. Upon maturity, the bank sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. This prompted my legal duties among others to inform Ulster Bank Ltd of his sudden death and to present his Next of Kin to claim Mr.Pajares Luis Caceres total estate. This sum of 7,500,000.00 Seven Million, Five Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling’s is in the Bank right now and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. In accordance with the Irish Law, at the expiration of 4 (four) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Irish Government, if nobody applies as the Next of kin to Claim the fund. Consequently, I shall present you to stand inas the next of kin to my Late Client so that you and I can benefit from the fruits of this old man’s labour to enhancHumanitarian Organization World wide. For now, I alone know about his last will/Testament, as my client has great confident in me. Everything will be left between you and I. The share would be 50% for you and 50% for me. All I have to Do is to amend the Last will/Testament of my client to make you thebeneficiary (next of Kin) to the claim of the Seven Million, Five Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling’s only legally. As I am not very sure of getting your consent on the issue, I prefer not to divulge my full identity so as not to risk being disbarred.The Irish Bar considers it a breach of the oath of the Irish Bar.I need not emphasize to you that the sensitivity of this issue need not be toyed with by neglecting its confidentiality. Due to the risk involve and also the activities of fraudsters now rampant on the Internet, and until I amsure of your consent, full co-operation and genuine willingness to assist me for our mutual benefit, I would prefer that we maintain correspondence by email. Upon acceptance, I shall send to you a copy of the probate and Inheritance return information form and the Detailed Information on how this business would be successfully transacted.At this point I want to assure you that your true consent, full co-operation and confidentiality are all that are required for us to take full advantage of this great opportunity. Do send your full names, address, and Private telephone & fax numbers for easy communication. You should send your reply to me at:firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to hear from you soon.
