BARRISTER VARDEN RICHARD EDWARD (Esq.) For R. Edward Chambers & Advocates Tel :+ 44 704 5770847 Fax :+ 44 709 2888420 Good day, I am Barrister Varden Richard Edward personal attorney to Ronald Lake and Joyce Lake who use to work with Frank Howard Allen Realtors. On the 31st of January 2000, my client and his wife were involved in a Plane Crash (Alaska Airlines Flight 261) all passengers unfortunately lost their lives, since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my client's extended relatives but this proved unsuccessful. You can read more about there death on this website below: http://archives.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ After all these several unsuccessful attempts, since it's not compulsory that the next-of-kin must be a blood relation to the deceased, hence I contacted you because you are from the same country with my late client, be informed that a next-of-kin can be anybody, friends or organization. Presently, the bank where the deceased (my client) made the deposit valued at Ј 13,000,000.00 Million British Pounds Sterling issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin to my client to receive its benefit or have the account confiscated, so I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating this benefit left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank. To this effect, I now seek your consent to present you to the bank as the next of kin of the deceased (my Client) so that the proceeds of this deposit valued at Ј 13,000,000.00 Million British Pounds Sterling can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money; 50% to me and 40% to you, while 10% should be given to any Orphanage Home. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me via E-mail: email@example.com with the below details immediately you acknowledge the good receipt of this message. Full Name: Full Address: Telephone Number: Fax Number: Mobile Number: Private Email: Age: Occupation: Country of Origin: Sex: Marital Status: Your prompt response is highly imperative. Yours sincerely, BARRISTER VARDEN RICHARD EDWARD (Esq.)
