Attention:sir/madam
 
 
I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail may cause you, as we have not met before. I am mike okoro, a solicitor at law, I am the personal attorney to Engineer Frank Edward, a national of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Nigeria, hereinafter referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2005, my client, his wife and their children were involved in a car accident along Kano - Sokoto express Road while arriving from Easter Holiday to Warri Delta State. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful.
 
I came across your name and contact, while I was searching for Frank's relations. Since my search was unsuccessful, I decided to contact you for this project. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money and properties left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank here where these funds were deposited. Particularly, the total amount is $12 Million United States Dollars, last year issued me a 12months notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the fund confiscated, and this ultimatum expires by next month.
 
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years now, I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased since you have  the same  nationality so that the proceed of this deposit of USD12 Million can be released to you and then you and I can share the money, 60% for me 30% for you, and the remaining 10% will be for expenses and tax. He made the money in one of the Oil deals he had with our Oil Minister. I also have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make.
 
All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this
business through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Get back to me as soon as possible at my private E-mail addresS below

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
