Subject: Read Details Carefully And Respond...........(CONFIDENTIAL)

Hello,

Please read carefully as I am going to explain in details why I mailed
you. I have since carried out a search on his actual extended family
ties and which efforts have been to no avail and hence my contacting
you. I had contacted you to solicit your honest assistance in
profiling funds belonging to my late client. I want you to consider
the details so you could understand the fuller reasons I need your
co-operation.

My mail to you was written as a matter of last resort because of the
circumstances surrounding this claim right now. He lived most of his
years here in the U.K but traveled often. I served as his private
attorney for the last eleven years preceding his death, just after the
birth of Katharine. Craig migrated into England a long time ago as an
orphan.

I know you may not be anyway related to my client but you need to
understand the main reason I contacted you. After the death of my late
client, I was informed by the finance company to search for any member
of his extended family to put up a claim, or who could be so
represented as managers or trustees for his deposited funds with them
which stands due to the fact that he died with his immediate family
members.

After preliminary efforts of search that came to no avail, I was given
an ultimatum to look for someone to come for the claim or have the
funds liquidated and made serviceableness in accordance with existing
laws because it will be assumed that no member of his family is alive.
However, it might interest you to know that, after a thorough
investigation in the finance company, I found out that some members of
the company are currently planning to divert this fund in their
selfish interest and only want to use the excuse that since I am not
able to look for someone to make the claim, the money should be made
serviceableness and that means reverting the fund to the Government
while the company retains a percentage of it. After unraveling their
plans and professional consideration on my part, I decided to look for
someone credible, with the same last name with my late client, to
apply for this claim due to the fact that I have at my possession some
legal documents which are very important and which might be requested
by them and which, can only be provided by my chambers since they have
since been with me.

I feel and know that you will be able to make this claim SUCCESSFULLY
because of your last name which is the same as that of my late
client's and as a result of this I do not want the company to be aware
that I contacted you first in order to prevent them from going into
much investigations on whom you actually are and that can put the
success of this transaction on the line. I want you to be rest assured
that this is legal with no risk involved, since all the legal
documents that give you the right to make the claim is available. This
is a deal I am offering you and I want you to know that it requires
only a mature mind to understand all I am saying and I believe you are
mature enough which is the reason I am going further. I am taking my
time to explain all these to you now because I want you to see the
reasons why my name should never be mentioned any time you are
discussing with the members of the company and why this transaction
has to be kept really confidential in order for us to be able to
achieve our goals neatly. Note that there is a legal reason for the
confidentiality of this transaction because of the nature of the
transactions and the circumstances surrounding it. I stand a better
part of the risk because if at any point, and for any reason, this
Finance House becomes aware of my prior contact with you, then I could
be held for being in breach of a standard code of conduct which
borders on a breach of lawyer/client fiduciary relationship among
others and for this reason, I will appreciate if you are very sure you
can assist with this and execute this with the required diligence.

NOTE that if they request to know how you came to know that your
family member had such an amount of funds with them and who contacted
you, which I am not sure they will ask, but in order to be on the
safer side, if you are asked, be confident to tell them that the
extended family discovered some documents in his archives showing that
Mr. Craig lodged such funds with them and that is why you have been
sent by the paternal family to contact the bank. Anyway, further
deliberations will be held on this as we proceed. I want you to know
that I have these documents to show to you as proof but I cannot
release them for your perusal now for security reasons until I have
attained your confidence. I will provide you with any information you
need as we proceed. I want you to be rest assured as this is going to
be done in line with the law avoiding anything illegal. I would be
protecting you 100% all the way through this transaction. Please bear
in mind that you have to be really sure if you are going ahead or not
for I do not want to jeopardize the success of this transaction which
means so much to me at the moment. I will wait for your response and
please do not forget about the discreet nature of this transaction. I
will advise you give me a call on +44 702 409 9529 my private and
confidential number.

Take note of the mode of sharing after a second thought, 50% for me
50% for you. If you have gone through this mail and you feel it is
well understood, please get back to me telling me if you are willing
to go ahead or not so that I can give you the contact of this finance
company where this fund is lodged and then inform you too of how to
proceed.

Regards.
