David Brown Associates & Co
Birmingham, United Kingdom.
am sorry for contacting you through this medium without a previous
notice,I had to use this means of communication because it is an easier
way of making contact with people around the world. My name is Barr.
David Brown, a consultant in practice here in Birmingham United
Kingdom. had a friend/ client by name Mr. Johan ,a nationale of your
country, a contractor based in London now deceased. My client lost his
life alongside his wife and only child in 2005 while on a visit to Sri
Prior to the Death of my Late Client,He secured a
contract of US$12,500,000.00 million from the Kingdom of Bahrain,
following which he received a 30% mobilization fee of US$3,750,000. 00
Million and successfully executed the contract, but the balance of
US$8, 750,000.00 Million contract payment was in the Process of being
transferred into his Account which he submitted to the Bahrain
Government when he lost his life in the Tsunami Disaster.
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 friend, personal
assistant and his business consultant, 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 in accordance with the Bahrain Laws.
as his personal assistance and close confidant, I want you to know that
my late Client died intestate, i.e he died without leaving a WILL and
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 proceeds of this account valued at
US$8,750,000.00 million can be paid to
you based on similarity of your name and that of my client.
can assure you that this is a harmless opportunity and I can also
assure you that there won't be any breach of the law in the process as
I am familiar with the sequence and in control of the situation here.
The bank has agreed to effect transfer of funds on provision of my
client's relation and this has to be strictly on my recommendation thus
my contact with you since you share the same name with my deceased
client. On receipt of a positive response from you, I will furnish you
with details of the transaction and also we shall discuss your
percentage before taking further steps.Do get back to me with the
YOUR NAME IN FULL..
