NOTIFICATION OF BEQUEST
On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Engr.
Whitacre Emmett,I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter
returned undelivered. Late Engr. Whitacre Emmett left the sum of seven
million five hundred thousand United States Dollars ($7,500.000.00 USD)
to you in the codicile and last testament to his WILL.
This may sound unbelievable to you, but it is true. He must have been in
contact with you in the past or you were recommended to him by one of his
numerous friends who wished you good.
He was a member of numerous organizations.
Get back to me immediately
Yours in Service
Ramsey Huddleston (ESQ)
