Here is the e-mail I received from this 'lawyer' Christopher Peter!!!


PETER & CO
1ST FLOOR, LEE TEOW ENG BUILDING
NO. 48-B2, OFF JALAN DATO SHEIKH
AHAD

SEREMBAN
MALAYSIA.

Tel; +60173274395.

Dear XXX,

My name is Mr Christopher Peter, a legal practitioner with PETER & CO in Seremban, Malaysia.

I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition.

I have a client by Name Mr. XXX, who was deceased in November, 2005, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I am contacting you because you have the same surname as my deceased client and i felt that you could help me in the distribution of funding that were left in my deceased client's bank account. This funding is closed to be declared un-serviceable by the bank as there were no indicated next of kin or next of beneficiary of the funding in the bank account.

The total amount of cash in the bank account of my deceased client is US$ 12.5 Million ( Say, Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars Only ),The bank had issued to me a notification to contact the next of kin of my deceased client for either to re-activate the bank account or to make claim of beneficiary, of the funding in the bank account, with a month surcharge of 6% to be deducted as an Escrow safe keeping fee of the bank account,so as to avoid the indefinite closure of the bank account. My proposition to you is to seek your consent, and to present your kind self as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my deceased client, since you have the same last name with him.

This means that the proceeds of his bank account would be paid to you as his next of kin or the legitimate beneficiary. When the proceeds in his bank account are paid to you, we would share the proceeds on a mutually agreed-upon percentage of 60% to me and 40% to your kind self. All the legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin would be provided by me. The most important thing I would need is your honest cooperation in this proposition.This would be done under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law.

If this business proposition offends your moral and ethical values,feel free to back out. Please contact me at once if you are interested reply through
my personal email (barr_petter@mail2malaysia.com).

Regards,
Barr. Christopher Peter M.ESQ,
Senior Advocate/Solicitor.

From: Mann Hari [mailto:mahharii@yahoo.com.my]
Sent: Monday, June 02, 2008 7:22 AM
To: Subject: Attn:Albert Anderman

Dear ,

My name is Mann Hari a registered and practicing attorney in Kuala
Lumpur,Malaysia.I was an attorney to a deceased client of mine who died in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia of a heart related condition in 2004.

My reason of sending you this email is to help secure the funds left behind by
my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where
this fund valued at $18.5million dollars was deposited.Since you do have the
same surname with my late client,I would want to present you as the legitimate
beneficiary with all legal documents required backing the claim up. The holding
bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the account will be
confiscated, and so far, all my efforts to get hold of someone related to this
man has proved abortive.

This is my proposal,I am asking for your consent to present you to the bank as
the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my late client, since you have the same last
name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then we can
share the amount on a mutually agreed upon percentage. I do have a good
standing in Malaysia, it is my assurance that this transaction will be
successful and that I will make sure that the transaction is done within the
applicable laws to guarantee full legitimacy.

All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin will be
provided by me. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
transaction through.This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that
will protect you from any breach of the law. However, if this business
proposition offends your moral values, do accept my apology.

Please contact me at once to indicate your interest. Do understand that this
transaction does require utmost confidence and you should keep this mail to
yourself notwithstanding if you are rejecting the transaction or accepting
it.Note that I reserve the right to reject your acceptance of this proposal if
I have reasons to believe that you may not be honest or discreet as it concerns
this proposal.Further details will be giving as soon as your interest is
indicated.

Yours sincerely,

Mann Hari
(LLB.Hon)
Attorney at Law
