I am Bill Graham a solicitor at law. I am the Personal Lawyer to a National

whom herein after shall be referred to as my client. 
On the 25th April 2007, my client, his wife and their three children were 

involved in a fatal car accident. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately 

lost their lives; my client was one of them. Since then I have made several 

enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives this 

has also proved unsuccessful.

contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and properties left behind 

by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the 

Swiss bank where these huge deposits were lodged. The Lion Bank Of 

Switzerland where the deceased had an account valued at US$ 6,000,000 Six

documents to back up your claims as the deceased Next of Kin will be

is needed for the execution of this transaction
