CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL
This is a confidential proposal 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 to
us. I am Andrew Barron, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to a deceased client of my
chambers who shares a similar surname with you, who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country, but
died in a car crash with his immediate family in East London on the 9th of April 2006.
My late client a formal Sub-Comptroller working with Marathon Oil Corporation here in the United Kingdom and
had Left behind a deposit of Ten Million six Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling only (£10.6million) 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 sure circumstances.
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 fuller 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 £10.6million 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 7 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,
60% to me and 40% 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 the 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 send your telephone and fax numbers to my
private email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to enable us discuss further on this transaction. If this proposal is
acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you, Thanks for your
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
