On March 7, 2007 my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in the Garuda Airlines Boeing 737, which busted into flames as it landed in Indonesia that killed over 22 people on board. Since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. I have contacted you to assist in receiving this funds into your account valued at €17,469,000.00 Euros(Seventeen Million, Four Hundred and Sixty Nine Thousand Euros) including stocks left behind by my client with a finance institute in United Kingdom.
I have made several inquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives, which has also proved unsuccessful. The Finance house issued me a notice to provide the next of kin to the deceased or have the account confiscated within a short period of time. Owing to my unsuccessful search f
or the relatives over 1 year now, I seek your consent to stand in as the next of kin to the deceased since you bore the same last name as his and we all stands the right to protect his legacy as such the proceeds of the deposit and stocks can be paid to you for both of us to share the funds. I have some legal documents that can be used to backup the claim, while the rest could be processed through the court. All I require is your honest, cooperation and trust. I guarantee that this will be executed under a good legitimate arrangement.
I will also forward your name to the finance firm as his legitimate next of kin backed up with a sworn affidavit from the magistrate court of United Kingdom. Be advised that this transaction is 100% risk-free as this transaction will remain sealed for life at the conclusion.
