Greetings, Before I start,I must firstly,apologize for this unsolicited proposal to you.I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional approach to starting a relationship,but as time goes on you will realize the need for my action. My name is Larry Wood,Solicitor to Gerald Welsh,who died with his family in an air crash on the 31st October 1999. Before the death of Gerald Welsh,he maintained a fixed deposit account (details of which I will disclose to you later). Since his death,none of his relatives have come to make claims for this money as his next-of-kin and the financial institution cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claims. The financial institution has made several futile efforts to contact his relatives.Based on this discovery,I now seek your permission to have you stand in as a next of kin to the deceased,as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the release of these funds all amounting to the tune of(US$32,000,000.00)to any nominated account of your choice. I guarantee that this project will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from any breach of the law. Regards, Larry Wood
