client's who worked as an independent oil Business
magnate in my country and who died in a car
crash with his immediate family on the 5Th of Nov
2004. Since the death of my client in Nov, 2004,I have
written several letters to the embassy with an intent
to locate any of his extended relatives whom

this as a scam mail, all I need is your help and
support so that we can both carry out this project, you are
not sending any money for this transaction.
I decided to contact you so that we can talk and see
how we can both put heads together and achieve this.
On this note, Wish to present you to the finance
company, as the surviving relative to the decease so
that we can put in claims for payment with your name
as the beneficiary of the fund.
I will appreciate if you can send me the following,

your management in any viable business venture.
