SUBJECT: -              Next of kin/Will Beneficiary to Mr. Mac Mc Coy.

Dear Friend,  


This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such. I am David 
Wedgwood Esq, and personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr. Mac Mc Coy of Dublin Ireland. 
Hereinafter referred to as "my client" I represent the interest of my client who died of Lung 
Cancer on October 26, 2004 and I will like to negotiate the terms of investment of resources 
available to him. My client worked as an oil merchant in Chevron Oil Plc. here in London, and had 
left behind a deposit of Fifteen Million British Pounds Sterling only (15,000,000.00) with a bank 
here in United Kingdom where I am presently residing.


The funds originated from contract transactions he executed in his registered area of business. 
Just after his death, I was contacted by his bank to provide his next of kin, reasons being that 
his deposit agreement contains a residuary clause giving his personal attorney express authority to 
nominate the beneficiary to his funds. Unknown to the bank here in London United Kingdom, my client 
had left no possible trace of any of his close relative with me, making all efforts in my part to 
locate his family relative to be unfruitful since his death.


Note down from my clients own story, he was only adopted and his foster parents whom he lost in 
1976, according to him, he had no possible trace of his real family. By virtue of my closeness to 
the deceased and his immediate family, I am very much aware of my client's financial standing. I do 
sincerely sympathize the death of my client, but had thought it running at a loss for his funds to 
be submitted to the majesty government of this country and the finance company where it is lodged. 

On this note, I decided to seek for a credible person and I was urged to contact you to put up a 
claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of my client, so that the proceeds of his bank 
account valued at Fifteen Million British Pounds Sterling only (15,000,000.00) can be paid to you, 
before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge deposit is 
lodged. Note that this is legal and 100% risk free.

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will shield you from any 
breach of law. As I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Please get in touch via 
my private email for better confidentiality and if acceptable by you, 
send me your full name and address, telephone and fax numbers to allow us discuss further on this 
transaction and also to enable me go to the Crown Court here in London and secure all legal 
documentation on your behalf to enable you get the legal backing to the claim.

I am looking forward to your understanding and co-operation.

Kind Regards.

David Wedgwood Esq.
