For your information,

You are the beneficiary to my deceased client who died in-estate to the bequest of the sum of £15,500,000.00 GBP.

All I need is for you to accept so that we can obtain the paper work from the probate division which is required for you to claim the funds from the holding bank. Please reply for more details. Please send your reply to my official email address: mrsdawson@queensqchambers.com

Thanks,

Sophia Dawson
