Barr. Don Spencer

For Spencer Chambers & Advocates

Address: 60 Bays water Road

London W2 3PS , United Kingdom

Good Day,


I am Barrister Don Spencer personal Attorney to Ronald Lake and Joyce Lake who

Used to work with Frank Howard Allen Realtors. On the 31st of January 2000 , my

Client and his wife were involved in a Plane Crash ( Alaska Airlines Flight 261) all

Passengers unfortunately lost their lives, since then I have made several enquiries

To locate any of my client's extended relatives but this proved unsuccessful.



After all these several unsuccessful attempts, since it's not compulsory that the

Next-of-kin must be a blood relation to the deceased, hence I contacted you

Because you are from the same country with my late client, be informed that a

Next-of-kin can be anybody, friends or organization.



Presently, the Bank where the deceased (my client) had a Deposit valued at

US$10,500,000.00 Million issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin to my client

To receive its benefit or have the account confiscated, so I have contacted you to

Assist me in repatriating this benefit left behind by my client before they get

Confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank.



To this effect, I now seek your consent to present you to the Bank as the next of

Kin of the deceased (my Client) so that the proceeds of this Deposit valued at

US$10, 500, 000.00 Million can be paid to you and then you and I can share the

Money; 50% to me and 40% to you, while 10% should be given to any Orphanage

Home.



I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will

Protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me via e-

Mail (don_spencer1@live.com) with the below details immediately you acknowledge

The good receipt of this message.
