31st October 1999[WITH EGYPTIAN AIRLINE 990] with other passengers aboard .
Since the demise of my client
I personally have watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all
has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of US$28.5m(Twenty

Plc where the deceased had an account valued at about Usd28.5 million dollars
has issued me a notice to provide the Next of kin, or have the account

consent to present you as the Next of kin of the deceased,I need somebody who
is trustworthy and willing to assist me get the funds transfered.Whcih the
account which my late client operate is valued at Usd28.5 million dollars can
be paid to you, as my clients Next of Kin, and then we can share the amount on
a mutual agreed percentage.

your claim as the deceased Next of Kin will be provided. All I require is your

will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
breach of the law and you should endeavor to keep it confidential.
