Dear LR,

How are you? It’s my profound pleasure speaking with you once again. In fact, I so much appreciates your efforts and contributions toward this project. As I said in my last email and on phone. I went to the High Court on Thursday and was asked to come back today. I was at the High Court all throughout today for the pursuit of the approval for the needed papers. Eventually, I was given the Approval Letter for the rest of the documents. As I promised you, I have taken care of the cost of procuring the papers. Though, I had to borrow some money from a colleague which I must payback real soon. And my house is presently serving as a collateral for loan so as to adequately finance this project. Therefore, please as soon as the fund hits your account, I would like you to send me USD$100,000.00 prior to my coming to India.

This money will enable me to repay my colleague as he needs the money as soon as possible, and also take care of my fares and other necessary arrangement regarding my trip to India. Please, the transaction is almost ended since I have secured all these needed documents. I believed you are aware of the 10% mapped out for the expenses incurred in the process. All estimates and sharing will be done upon my appearance in India. Below is attached some among the relevant documents and my Power of Attorney, you will have to sign the Power of Attorney and return it back to me as soon as possible.

I will advise and guide you on how to address your appeal to the bank. On reading your reply confirming the receipt of these documents, I will now give you the bank contact details and instruct you on how to address the matter to the bank for immediate transfer. Please, I have every trust in you now and I believe you will perfectly work according to as agreed. I still plead for your honesty, clarity and confidentiality for the effectiveness and success of this transaction. I will later send you the account details in which you will send me the $100, 000.00 for the repayment of my debt once the money gets to you. I will call you again upon the receipt of the signed Power of Attorney. I am looking forward to reading from you. Take care of yourself and family.

Dear LR,

How are you? Sorry to get back to you late. Actually, I have been busy handling the legal procedures regarding this probate matter. I appreciate your effort so far. I have been working hard to actualize this project. The fund will be transferred in less than 10 working days from the time your claim application is made to the bank. I made a payment this morning for the issuance and approval of the discussed documents. Though, there are only a few remaining, which definitely must be paid and approval obtained by early next week. I am exercising every effort to ensure that approval is given to this project. Hopefully, in less than 4 working days, all approval will be granted and you will immediately proceed to the bank for the transfer of the said fund. Please do send your identification card or international passport as demanded from the High Court.

Like I told you earlier, I must accommodate whatever cost of obtaining the required papers to attract approval from the High Court. I will call you and forward all the papers to you once the remainders are obtained. Please, I sincerely appreciate your effort in helping me to go through this probate matter. I am confiding in you. Always adhere to our terms of agreement. Behold the watch words, clarity, honesty and confidentiality in this transaction. Please, I would like you to write back confirming the receipt of this email. I will keep you posted on the latest development. Take care of yourself and family. I hope to speak with you within next week.

Dear L.R,

How are you doing? I called your phone number (+919941442198) but couldn\'t get through. However, I have succeeded in getting a Sworn Affidavit from the Court.

Obviously, within the week or early next week, I will be called on by the Court for the approval of the appeal. More so, attached below is the Sworn Affidavit and the Legal Agreement which I earlier said should be forwarded to you. Please I urge you to keep a file of the necessary documents that come to you in regards to this matter. You are required to sign the Agreement and send back to me when confirmed satisfactory.

Please, I am building the utmost trust with you at this moment. I would appreciate your best effort in clarity, honesty and confidentiality for a perfect completion of the probate matter. Please, go through the Agreement letter thoroughly, if you find something complicating, promptly contact me for more clarification and amendment. I will keep you posted as soon as am called by the Court. Take care of yourself. I will speak with you within the week. Please do confirm the receipt of this email.

This is purely a probate matter and must be followed according to the law. This transaction must undergo some legal procedures prior to your contact with the bank and approval has to be given by the appropriate legal/legitimate authorities/bodies. There is no legal ramification as the procedures and legal modalities must be observed. There is no cost if the project fails to accomplish. The case will just be rendered null and void.

I really appreciated your effort and willingness to help in this transaction. Below this mail is the attached Affidavit Form which I told you that I will send to you on confirming your willingness to help in this transaction. All you need to do is to fill it and return to me, you have to print it out and fill in the required information, scan it back and send to me without delay it will enable me to hasten the process.

Meanwhile, I will have to swear an oath before the court signifying that, you are the true beneficiary of my late client\'s fund (USD$16,815,000.00). Nevertheless, there are few other necessary documents needed to fix you in as the true heir of my client family. I will gradually secure them. With the Sworn Affidavit, I can be able to get approval for the rest of the papers from the required legal houses. I will always carry you along while the processes. Please feel free to ask questions if need be. Thank you once again for helping to save my client\'s inheritance. Looking forward to reading from you. Have a great day.


Thanks
