I was privileged to capture your names from the Internet. My name is Mr. Peter
Isiego Esq, a legal practitioner and the personal Attorney to my late client,
who died along with his wife and his two sons and a daughter in a ghastly motor
accident on third main-land bridge, over 3 years now August 13, 2004. All the
occupants in the vehicle lost their lives. I am convinced that it was the grace
of God that made me to locate you. My client was a successful and is
accomplished family man, who made enough fortune before his untimely death. 

Since then I had made several inquiries through your Embassy to locate any of
my client extended relative but this exercise has proved unsuccessful. After
several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives through the
Internet, to locate any member of his family not much progress was recorded My
late client was an influential wealthy businessman, an oil magnate here in
Nigeria and he left behind a deposit of Ten Million Two Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars only US$10,2OO,OOO.OO in his domiciliary bank account with GULF
BANK OF NIGERIA PLC here in Lagos. After the death of my client his banker
contacted me, as his Attorney to provide his next of kin who should inherit his

The board of directors of his bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to
provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within 28 working days or
forfeit the money to the bank as an abandoned property. 

The banker had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to
confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me. Despairing
at the point of exhaustiveness, fortunately, I came across your name, to my
utmost amazement, I discovered that you bear the same surname with my late
client and coincidentally, you are nationals of the same country. 

I am Convinced that you may be linked with my late client or that you might
provide clue to my search, I therefore, decided to contact you with these facts
before me because of the similarities. By virtue of my closeness to the
and his immediate family, I am very much aware of my client financial standing
and the bank account he operates. 
I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to
present you as the next of kin of my deceased client so that you can be paid
funds left in his bank account hence I contacted you. 

I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you
are at an advantage, so that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued US$10.2m
Million Dollars can be paid to you. 
We shall both share the funds 50-50, 50% to me and 50% to you. I shall assemble
all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up our claim. 

All I require is your honest cooperation 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 law. Please get in touch with me by email: to enable us discuss further. 


Best Regards, 

Mr. Peter Isiego Esq.
