I am Barrister Ford Jeffery, a solicitor at law. I am the Personal Attorney to Mr. Hanson Scott, a National of your country, On the 3rd of June 2010 my client and his family was involved in an auto crash, Unfortunately they lost their lives. Since then I have made several inquiries to his embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, which proved unsuccessful.
After these several attempts, I decided to contact you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this money were deposited. Particularly, the bank where the deceased deposited this funds valued at $10 million U.S dollars (Ten Million U.S Dollars) has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin of the deceased or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessfully in locating any of his relatives for the past two years, I now seek for your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this funds can be cleared and transferred to your account pending the negotiation of the sharing of the money between us. I will provide the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up the claim of the funds from the bank.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
