It is obvious that this proposal will come to you as a surprise; this is because we have not met before but I am inspired to sending you this email following the huge fund transfer opportunity that will be of mutual benefit to the two of us.
However, I am BARRISTER PARTRICK MOORE, Attorney to the late Engr. Ronald Johnson, a national of Northern American, who used to work with Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) in Nigeria On the 26th of August, 2008. My client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Sagamu/Lagos Express Road.
Unfortunately they all lost their lives in the event of the accident, since then I have made several enquiries to several Embassies to locate any of my clients extended 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 of no avail, hence I contacted you. i
I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client; I can easily convince the bank with my legal practice that you are the only surviving relation of my client. Otherwise the Estate he left behind will be confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about $15 million U.S dollars (Fifteen million U.S. America dollars).
Consequently, The bank issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over several years now. I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased, so that the proceeds of this account valued at $15million U.S dollars can be paid to your account and then you and I can share the money, 50% to me and 50% to you.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through and also forward the following to me:
1, Your Full Name:
2, House Address:
3, Your Country:
4, Your Contact Telephone Number:
5, Your Age and Gender:
6, Your Occupation:
7. your id card or passport .
I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please get in touch with me VIA this my confidential email
