Dear Sir/Madam, It is my pleasure to introduce you to this transaction on behalf of the Trustees and Executors to the Testament of our late client. I wish to notify you that we intend to enlist you as a beneficiary to the total sum of £7, 600,000.00 (Seven Million Six Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling) in the intent of the deceased. Until her death she was a major shareholder in big companies which include textile and construction companies. We can therefore present you as thebeneficiary to the inheritance since there was no written will before she died.
She was a very great philanthropist during her life time and we reckoned that you can receive these funds as the administrator to the Estate. All the papers will be processed in your favor and further details will be sent to you once you accept to assist us.In your acceptance of this deal, we request that you kindly forward a letter of
acceptance, your current telephone; fax numbers and forwarding address to firstname.lastname@example.org, to enable us file the necessary documents at our HighCourt-Probate division for the release of this sum of money. We both have major role to play in this transaction as we shall do all that is humanly relevant to
ensure a successful transaction as soon as possible. I do hope to hear from you soon. Thanks. Yours faithfully, Mr. Steve Rudy.
