London, United Kingdom.
ATTN: Gísli Ásgeirsson (CONFIDENTIAL).
Dear Gísli Ásgeirsson,
This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it should be treated as such. I am Andrew Allen, a lawyer and solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr. George Ásgeirsson, hereinafter referred to as ‘my client’ who worked as an independent oil merchant in my country UK before he died in a car crash with his immediate family on the 28th of July, 2001.
I carried out this search on you and I am contacting you because you bear a similar last name with that of my late client and the further reasons are as follows:
Since the death of my client in July, 2001, I have written several letters to his embassy with an intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail.
However, going by the recent publications by the Trustee bank in which my client deposited the sum of £8.7m (GBP), I fear a likely winding up proceedings in the coming months. I seek your consent therefore, to present you to the trustees as my client’s next of kin since you bear a similar last name with him so that you can help repatriate the money to a foreign account and I promise a fair share between us at the end of the transfer.
If you are very interested, contact me through my secured email address; firstname.lastname@example.org so I can appraise you with the further details. I assure you that I have all the requirements to execute this claim legitimately.
Please let me have your opinion as soon as possible and send to me your telephone and fax numbers to enable us discuss further on this transaction. You can also call me at your earliest convenience on +44 704 572 5537. Remember to add your country’s dialing out code before my numbers.
Andrew Allen (Esq).
