Bello Osagie & Associates Legal Practitioner, Solicitors & Notaries & Property & Civil Law Block 43 Law Road Ave,Surulere, Lagos. Email: email@example.com Dear Friend, I am Bar. Bello Osagie a legal Attorney with great vision as I am the private and most trusted Attorney to my late client Mr.Robert D.(Snr.) a National of your Country, who used to work with Shell Development Company here in Nigeria and a U.S Consular Officer.On the 22nd Saturday October 2005,My client, his wife And their three children were involved in a plane crash .All passengers and crew on board in the plane unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your contry's embassy in a bid to locate any of his extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful(Abortive) After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet during my search in the international web internet business directory for a reliable and honest person to act as the Next of kin to my late client(Mr.Robert) Since you bear the same last name with the deceased,to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the money and property left behind by my late client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where he deposited sum of Forty Eight million dollars with OCEANIC BANK PLC the banking guidelines stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed for over a period of time 2 years and few months, with the account unservicable the money will be confisicated and this will happen after the next one month if nobody comes for the money. Since I have not seen any body for the money, the bank has contacted me officially as the Legal Attorney to my late client to bring any of his relative as the next of kin to claim this money he deposited with them before his dealth with his entire family in a Bellview Airline Plane Crash,since he left the space of next of kin in the account opening form with the bank empty and unfilled before his dealth.Now I seek your consent to present yourself as the next of kin of the deceased even if you are not the real next of kin,i have everything to help you out so that the proceeds of this account valued at Forty Eight million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money 45%/45% as 10% will be set aside for any expenses incured during the process of the transaction.All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please enclose your other Names,Address and your Phone numbers in your response as soon as you show keen interest for effective communication.Be rest assured that as you comply to my directives this transaction will be executed in a legitimate arrangement that will prevent you from any breach of the law in your country as it would be backed with official documentation endorsed by the supreme court of Nigeria to legalize the claims of this transaction. Finally, I crave your indulgence to present you as the surviving next of kin to the deceased so that we can reap from the fruit of this old man's labour before some group of bad and corrupt leaders in my country get rid of this money and share it for their own selfish interest instead of both of us sharing it for the betterment of ourselves and our families. I am awaiting your Prompt response with some good news!!!
