your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in
I have a client who died on the 11th November, 2005., he died as the
result of a heart-related condition on . His heart condition was due to

As at the said time, I was working with the deceased as his legal and
personal adviser in Malaysia. I am contacting you because you have the
same surname as my deceased client and I felt that you could help me in
the distribution of my deceased client funds.

close to been declared un-serviceable by the Bank as there were no
indicated next of kin or beneficiary to the funds. The total amount of
money in the Account is US4.5 million dollars (Four Million, Five Hundred
Thousand United States dollars only).
The Bank had issued me, a notification to contact the next of kin of my
deceased client, to make beneficiary claim of the fund. Hence, I am
contacting you. My proposition to you is to seek your consent, and to
present your kind self as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my deceased
client, since you have the same last name with him.
This means that the deposit will be transferd over to you as the next of
kin or the legitimate beneficiary. After the funds are accessible, we
would share the proceeds on a mutually agreed-upon percentage of 60% to me
and 40% to your kind self.
All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next of-kin
would be provided by me. The most important thing I would need is your
honest cooperation in this proposition. This would be done under a
legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law.
