Attn : Sir/Madam
The deal is concerning my late client who has similar last name with you and who hails from your 
country.This client died leaving the sum of $16 million dollars with our bank,and since then the 
bank is worried about the fund and the bank has asked me (as the account manager to the late 
customer)to find any relation of the late customer for claim of the fund. But I know that the late 
customer(Engr.) died with all his immediate family as a result of the incident.This is why I have 
to conduct a search over the internet to see if I can get some one(worthy) with similar names so 
that I will present him to the bank as the late customers next of kin to enable us claim the $16 
million. So,I have contacted you because the bank board  have issued me a notice to provide the 
next of kin of the deceased customer or the bank will declare the account unservisable and 
confiscate the funds to the bank treasury.

Because I would not want the bank to confiscate the fund and since I have been unsuccessful in 
locating the relatives for over last 6 years now, I want to seek your consent to present you as the 
next of kin of the late customer , so that the proceeds of this account valued at ($16.million US 
dollars) can be paid to you as the late Engineer's next of kin . After the successful transfer  I 
and you will  share the money when I come to your country. 
All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this 
deal will be executed under all legitimate arrangement that will protect us  from any breach of the 
law. I am not contacting because you know or you are related to this late Engineer,hence you are 
aware that all my efforts to locate any direct family member of the late Engineer proved 
unsucessful for the past years,and this is why I have contacted you to carry on the deal with 
you(Hope you understand better now?). I want to assure you that I did not just wake up and decide 
to do this, I have did my proper home work before contacting you and I want to asure you that this 
is not a joke. I work with Metro Bank Plc Lagos , I am presently the director of Audit & records of 
my bank. I have worked with this bank for more than 10yrs now and I want to assure you that if I am 
not sure that this deal will work, I would not have thought of doing it nor contacting you.

You should go ahead and send your information/datas(ie:your full names, address, date of birth, 
telephone and fax numbers) When I receive the information ,I will work on the original  account 
file of the deceased customer to  fill your datas as the new next of kin and thereafter forward you 
an application form which you will send to our bank officially for the claims. I really want us to 
treat everything concerning this transaction with uttermost secrecy,therefore I will not accept the 
involvement of third party in this deal. 

Thank you very much.
