kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

DEAR FRIEND,

I am sorry for contacting you through this medium without a previous notice, I had to use the e-mail because it is an easier way of making contact with people around the world. My name is Barrister Zaihan Saeed, a Senior Advocate and legal consultant in practice here in Malaysia, I had a client, a contractor based here in Malaysia now deceased. My client lost his life alongside his wife and only child in (Beirut-bound charter jet) plane crash on the Monday, 9 January 2006, 12:12 GMT.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4594104.stm  Prior to the Death of my Late Client,
 He secured a contract of US$11,300,000.00 million from the Kingdom of Bahrain, following which was successfully executed the contract, but the balance of S$11,300,000.00 Million contract payment was in the Process of being transferred into his Account which he submitted to the Bahrain Government before he lost his life in the plane crash.
 Three Months after his sudden death, the Government effected the transfer of the balance of his Contract Funds into the account that my deceased Client has on his file with the Government. As his consultant and personal lawyer, I have been officially notified and instructed by the bank where the money is currently deposited that I should provide and forward the particulars of my deceased client's next of kin so that the funds in his account can be remitted into his Next of Kin's account.
However, as his personal lawyer and close confidant, I want you to know that my late Client died intestate, i.e. he died without leaving a Will and d all my efforts to locate any of his relatives whom I can present to the Bank has proved abortive. Therefore I am seeking for your consent to present you as the relative/next of kin and subsequently the beneficiary of the fund so that the proceed of this account valued at US$11,300,000.00 million can be paid to you based on as the next of kin.
I contacted you for two reasons. as his legal consultant I have been officially notified and instructed by the bank to provide and forward the particulars of the deceased next of kin so that the funds in his account can be remitted into his Next of Kin's account in accordance with the Laws here. If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me immediately,if you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wait to hear from you.
Yours Faithfully,
Zaihan Saeed Esq.
(Head of Chamber.)
