Dear Friend,

Please do accept my apology if my mail infringes on your personal ethics. My name is Richard Cullen, a Private attorney based here in Johannesburg, Republic of South Africa. Honestly it will be my humble pleasure if we can work together.

I want you to stand in as the next of kin to a deceased client, a citizen of your country who share the same Last name with you.He died in car accident on the 20th of November 2007 without any registered next of kin. Several efforts were made to find his extended family through your embassy without success. I have received official letter from the bank suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of the Fund in line with existing laws by the bank in which my client deposited the sum of $23.5 Million Dollars. According to the Government Law here, at the expiration of 11 years the fund will revert to the ownership of the South African Government, if nobody applies to claim the fund.

My proposition to you is to present you to the bank as the Next of kin to my late client so that the bank will pay this $23.5 Million Dollars to you as his beneficiary so that we can share the amount on a mutually agreed percentage of 60% for me 40% for you.

All legal documents to back up your claim will be provided by me. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I will also guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law here or in your country.

If you are interested in this transactions, Please do contact me via my private so that I can give you comprehensive details on how to proceed. Your immediate response will be highly appreciated.

Regards and God bless
