Though, I do not know to what extent you are familiar with events. Well, I am David Nze,a Solicitor. I am the Personal Attorney to Mr. Richard Michael, who used to work with Shell Company Limited. On the 21st of June 2004, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Epe Express Road. Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident. Since then I have made several inquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence, I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind in Particularly bank where the deceased deposited the US$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars only). Consequently, this bank issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to claim the US$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars only) in their custody within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for ove Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement of the fund and then you and I will share the money in this order: 60% will be for me, 40% will be for you. I have all the necessary legal documents that can back our claim we will make with the bank. All I require is your honest co-operation 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. You are needed as a next of kin to be presented before the bank to inherit the fund. Hope to hear from you soon. Many thanks. Yours Sincerely. Barrister David Nze
