Law Chamber Principal Attorney Adewale Johnson& Associates 44, Kofo Abayomi Avenue, Victoria Island, Lagos-Nigeria. EMAIL:email@example.com Dear Partner ,Kindly accept my apology for sending unsolicited mail to you. I believe you are a highly respected personality, considering the fact that I sourced your profile from a human resource profile database on your country. Though, I do not know to what extent you are familiar with events.Well, I am Barrister Adewale Johnson a Solicitor. I am the Personal Attorney to (Mr. Steve A) who used to work with Agip Oil Company in Nigeria. On the 21st of April 2005, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Abuja Express Road.Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident.Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's 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 to no avail, hence, I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client in a Bank.Particularly, the Finance House where the deceased deposited the US$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars only) knows me very well and has ask me to present some one to claim the fund left by my late client as they all know I am his attorney.Consequently, this Bank issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to claim the US$15 Million(Fifteen Million United States Dollars only) in their custody 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 to claim the fund as the Next of Kin to him so that the Bank will transfer the fund to your account.Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement of the fund and then you and I will share the money in this order: 60% will be for me, 40% will be for you. I have all the necessary legal documents that can back our claim we may make with the Bank.All I require is your honest co-operation 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 thelaw.Contact me at my private email address;firstname.lastname@example.org Best regards. Barr Adewale Johnson Principal Attorney
