I am Barrister Johnson kuta, the Personal Attorney to late Mr.Michael Taylor, who was a contractor with emelite gold mining company here in Benin.
On December, 2006, my lient and his family were perished in a crash but my client made a fixed dopsit valued at USD$10.5M) , and upon the maturity his bank started contacting him but no response.Conseqently, the bank issued me a notice as his lawyer to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated after 4 years as the law of this country says.
Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.Since i have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over some years now,that is why i seek for your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at $10.5 million can be paid to you then we share the money together.
I know that you might be wondering why i have decided to trust you with this huge sum, I could have do the business alone but there is no way i can succeed without a foreign hand,that is why i seek for your assistance so we can share the benefit together.
I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up the claim on your behalf. All i require is your honest and maximum cooperation to enable us see this deal through.I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
