Subject: Hello how are you today


I decided to write you this proposal in good faith, believing that
you will not betray me at the end. I am Barrister Paul George, a
personal Attorney and legal adviser to one Mr. Taveed, a foreigner
resident here in my country who works with a Multi-National oil
company as an oil consultant/contractor. I have been in search for
someone with the same last name of my late client and a close friend
of mine (Mr.Taveed), hence I have to contact you since both of you
bear the same surname and coincidentally from the same Country.

On the 15 march 2007, the young millionaire (Mr.Taveeed ), a citizen
of your Country and crude oil dealer made a fixed deposit in one of
the reputable banks here in America, and the maturity date for this
deposit contract was on 20th of November, 2014. Unfortunately and sad
enough, he was among the victims in the 12th May 2008, Earthquake
disaster in Sichuan, China that killed over 69,000 people. Please
click on the link below to view info about the incident.

He was in China on a business trip and that was how he meet his
sudden death. Now, the Bank has given me a notice to provide the next
of kin or relative within fourteen (14) days so that the fund would be
released or have the account frozen and the money seized. As I have
been unsuccessful in locating any of his relatives for over two (2)
years now, I think it is wise to seek for your consent in order to
present you as the next of kin since you have the same surname with
him, and above all, he did not mention any Next of Kin or heir when
the account was opened as he was not married.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal
through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. It is
better we work in harmony to claim the money than letting the bank
directors to seize it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy
person, so I am suggesting we share the funds in this ratio, 50 – 50
%, Let me know your mind on this and please keep this information
personal and to yourself alone.

On hearing from you, I will provide further information and the
method of operation to obtain the release of these funds from the
bank. Please reply through my private email address;

Yours Truly,

Barrister Paul George (Esqr)
