He was dead in the first, opening gambit, letter...)
After all accounts world wide bearing my Family name was been frozened and also most of his landed properties both home and abroad were also confisticated. my family during this painful process have lost a lot of money and properties worth Millions of Dollars.

My Isa i mandated my attorney to work hand in hand with you to assist you in clearing this funds(money) that is presntly lodged in a security company here in Holland. This money has been packed into two boxes and the consignments "boxes" were tagged Diplomatic Luggage.
