FROM THE DESK OF
BARRISTER FRANK ROBERTSON
SOLICITORS & ADVOCATES
LONDON, U.K.
E-mail: fk.robsn33@rocketmail.com


Attn: Friend,


I write you in good faith, hoping that you will treat this letter as a
desperate search for assistance in a matter that shall benefit both of us.
A random search based on your locality from the Internet produced your
name and address and that of two others in your country.


I am FRANK ROBERTSON an Attorney to a deceased Immigrant property magnate
who was based in the U.K., also referred to as my client. On the 31st of
July 2000, my client, his wife, daughter/husband and their two Children
died in the Air France concord plane crash bound for New York in their
plan for a world cruise, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm


Since then I have been managing his properties here in the U.K. and some
others which he put out for sale. The properties which have long been put
out on sale have now been paid for and now the money paid has long been
deposited into his local bank account here. I have contacted you to assist
in repatriating the money and estate left behind by my client before they
get confiscated or declared unserviceable by his bank. Particularly, the
bank has issued me with a notice to provide any of his next of kin or have
the account confiscated within a short period of time. My late client has
an account valued at GBP£21 MILLION POUNDS Only. Since I have been
unsuccessful in locating any of my clients relatives for some time now and
with no one coming forward since my clients passing on, and with the bank
now giving me a deadline, I now seek your consent to present you as the
next of kin to my deceased client, so that the proceeds of his account
valued at GBP£21 MILLION POUNDS can be paid to you. This I intend we share


I have all the necessary information that can be used to back up any Claim
that we may make and I can assure you that you shall be paid this amount
as the next of kin to my late client. All I require is your honest
co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from
any breach of the law.


Trust me as his attorney; this is a risk-free relationship. Please get in
touch with me via email: fk.robsn33@rocketmail.com to enable us discuss
further about this transaction.


Best regards,
Frank Robertson.
