I wish to intimate you with a request that would be of immense benefit to both of us. Being the executor of the Will, it is possible that we may be tempted to make fortune out of my client situation, when we cannot help it, or left with no better option.
The issue I am presenting to you is about my client who wills a tremendous amount of funds to his next-of-kin. It was most unfortunate that he died with his next-of-kin same day in the Sharjah plane crash of Tuesday 10 February 2004.
I am now in a dilemma to either pass the fortune to government or quickly take advantage of it. According to our law, I don't know if you are aware, the fortune is supposed to be bequeathed to government as there is no surviving next-of-kin.
However, I do not share in that sentiment which proposes that the fortune of unlucky people be given to the government. I seek your assistance to act as the beneficiary of the inheritance, and lay claim to these funds (£12.4million), which this my unfortunate client bequeathed to his next-of-kin. For now, it is only known to me, as my client has great confident in me. Everything will be left between you and me.
The share would be 40% for you and 60% for me. All I have to do is to modify the Will stating you as the beneficiary to the £12.4million. I prefer not to divulge my full identity so as not to risk being debarred. The British Bar council considers it a breach of the oath of the bar council. I need not emphasize to you that the sensitivity of this issue need not be toyed with by neglecting its confidentiality. At this point I want to assure you that your true consent, full cooperation and confidentiality are all we require to take full advantage of this rare opportunity.
This is an opportunity that people rarely have. Please embrace this by reverting to me urgently to enable me proceed. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
