||This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such. I must solicit your
Confidentiality and assure you that I am contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual
benefit. I am Stephen Furniss, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late (Mr.
Raymond) hereinafter referred to as my client who worked as an independent oil magnate in my
country, who died in a car crash with his immediate family in East London on the 5Th of November
My late client a former Sub-Controller working with Chevron Texaco Oil here in the United Kingdom and
had Left behind a deposit of Nine Million Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling only
(£9.8million) with a bank. After the death of my client, the finance company contacted me, as his
attorney to provide his Next of kin who should inherit his fortune this according to them is their policy in
Since the death of my client, I have written several letters to the embassy with intent to locate any of his
extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such
efforts have been to no avail. I had to inform the finance company about my fruitless effort in locating
my late client close relative or His next of kin.The board of directors of the company just adopted a
resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within the next
15 official working days or forfeit the money as an abandoned funds. The company had planned to
invoke the abandoned property decree of the company to confiscate the funds after the expiration of
the period given me. Also I have received official letters in the last two days suggesting a likely
proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws of the institution.
Well I have reasons very professional and I can use a legal means to present a next of kin of my
deceased client. This is legally possible and would be done in accordance with the laws of the land. On
this note I decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a similar last name, I was
urged to contact you, that I may, with your consent, present you to the "Trustee" as my late client's
family members as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of my client.
I find this possible for the fullest reasons that you are of the same nationality and you bear a similar last
name with my late client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity. I have all vital
documents that would confer you the legal right to make this claim and would make them available to
you so that the proceeds of this bank account valued at £9.8million can be paid to you before it gets
confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge amount is lodged.I do sincerely
sympathize the death of my client but think it is unprofitable for his funds to be submitted to the
government of this country or some financial institution. My aim is to retrieve these funds and let it be
claimed by the deceased family Lineage, etc. for this I seek your assistance since I have been unable to
locate the relatives for the past 8 years now
I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name
giving you the advantage so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you and then both of us
can share the money, 40% to me and 60% to you. I know there might be other persons out there with
the same surname as my last client, but after a little check my instinct tells me to contact you. Can I trust
you on this? I shall assemble all the necessary documents that will be used to back up your claim.
I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
breach of law. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should
not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this
transfer.Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this. Please get in touch with me by my
(Stephen_Furnisslawfirm01@hotmail.com) for better confidentiality and send to me your telephone and
fax numbers to enable us discuss further on this transaction. My contact number is (+44 701 114 8504) if
you would like to give me a call right away or leave a brief message and I will definitely return your call.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you.
Thanks for your understanding.
