Firstly, I apologize for sending you this sensitive information via e-mail instead of a Certified mail/Post-mail. This is due to the urgency and importance of the information.
I am luke france , a solicitor at law. On the 21st of october 2007, my client, his wife and their two Children were involved in an auto crash in a remote village called Kuru near Accra Ghana. All occupants of the car unfortunately lost their lives.
Since then I have made several enquiries to his embassy in Ghana to locate any of my clients extended relatives, but this has also proved unsuccessful.After these several unsuccessful attempts,I decided to contact you for a mutual business working relationship.
I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they get confiscated,frozen or declared unserviceable by the bank where these huge deposits were lodged.Particularly, the bank where the deceased had an account valued at Seven Million United States Dollars(US$7,000,000:00).
The management has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account frozen within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this amount valued at$7,000,000:00 can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money. 50% to me and 50% to you
I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. I want you to send the following info to enable me start procurement of the inheritance documents to your favour.
Full Names:
Contact address:
Home, Work and Cell Telephone #:
All I require is your honest co-operation 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.
Waiting for your reply.
Best regards,
Luke France
