URGENT:FROM:DR.JAMES CHRISTIAN Dear Friend , This is a proposal in context but actually an appeal soliciting for your unreserved assistance in consummating an urgent transaction requiring maximum confidence. Though this approach appears desperate, I can assure you that whatever questions you would need to ask or any other thing you will need to know regarding this proposal will be adequately answered to give you a clearer understanding of it, so as to arrive at a successful conclusion. I am ,James Christian,a personal secretary/confidant to my late boss ,a national of your country, who used to work with a multi-national Company in my country. On the 21st of April 2001, my boss, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident . All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my boss' extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in recovering the fund valued at US$2.5 million left behind by my boss before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the SECURITY FINANCE BANK, where this huge amount was deposited. Consequently, the bank issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within a short time.Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over some years now,I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you share the same surname so that the proceeds of the account valued at U.S$2.5 million can be paid to your account for both of us to share the funds;50% to me and 45% to you, while 5% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require. Necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim shall be procured. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through my e-mail to enable us discuss further. Thanks for your kind co-operation. Dr.James Christian.
