  2. Attn: Beneficiary

    I hope that this letter will not be of a surprise to you,I decided to contact you after I have considered and thought about this proposal, therefore I realized that it will be of mutual benefit to both of us.You might not know me in person, however, I got your contact from International Business Web directory while I was surfing the net to get my late client next of kin but all my endeavor was without success. I will also like to ask for your permission before intruding into your privacy.

    My name is Antonio Cutti, A Lawyer to deceased client of mine who died with her little family and left Twenty million Euros in an european bank without next of kin.When she deposited the fund, she did not include any name as her next of kin. Since she died, her account has been dormant, so no one has come forward to claim this fund.

    My main reasons for contacting you is simply, I want you to stand as her next of kin as well as her business partner.The Bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin or the account will be declared unserviceable and the fund will be diverted to the Bank treasury, So far,all my efforts to get a hold of someone related to my late client has proved abortive. I am actually asking for your consent to present you to the Bank as the Next of Kin/beneficiary of my late client's fund because of your profile,so that the proceeds of this fund can be paid to your account.

    I have the full right to present anyone to the bank as her next of kin since I am her lawyer and I have every documents to back up the claim if only you will listen to me and work accordingly to my instruction. What I am demanding from you, is utmost trust and secrecy in this deal because of security reason.

    I request that you kindly forward to me your letter of acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with the following;

    1. Beneficiary name and address.
    2. Direct Mobile number and fax numbers.
    3.Occupation and Sex

    These requirements will enable us file a letter of claim at our high court probate division for the release of this sum of money.

    I wish to point out that I want 20% of this money to be shared among charity Organizations, while the remaining 80% is shared equally between us.This transaction is entirely risk free.

    Best Regards,

    Lawyer Antonio Cutti
