Good day to you,
I presume this letter will come to you as a surprise, but as things unfold, we will know each other better. Iwill start by introducing myself to you. My name is Thomas Cole a solicitor at law. I am writing in respect ofa foreigner who happens to be my client an oil merchant and contractor (Mr. Richard Burson) whoperished in a plane crash of 31st October 1999[WITH EGYPTIAN AIRLINE 990] with other passengers aboard as youcan confirm it yourself through the website below.http://wwwcnn.com/US/9910/31/egyptair.03/
Since the demise of my client I personally have watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all hasproved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of US$28.5m(Twenty Eight Million Five Hundred ThousandUnited States Dollar) and all the relevant documents in the bank has no record of any next of kin. On thisnote, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as his next of kin so i have contacted you to assistin repatriating most especially, the money left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declaredunserviceable by the bank where the huge deposits were lodged.
Particularly, the Union bank Nig Plc where thedeceased had an account valued at about Usd28.5 million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the Next ofkin, or have the account confiscated.
I seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin of the deceased since you bear the same last name sothat the proceeds of this account valued at Usd28.5 million dollars can be paid to you, as my clients Next ofKin, and then we can share the amount on a mutual agreed percentage All legal documents to back up your claimas the deceased Next of Kin will be provided.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will beexecuted under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law and you shouldendeavor to keep it confidential.
