O. UDOR CHAMBERS 164, Walter Carringhton Crescent, V/Island, Nigeria. Attention: I am Barrister OGEBE UDOR. I have a client Mr. Jeffrey, a nationality of U.S.A who used to work with Amaco Associates Company in Nigeria, on the 22nd of May 2006, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Manchester Express Road, London. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of my client's extended 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 of no avail, hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating the money left behind by my late client before they got confiscated or declared serviceable by the Finance House where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Finance House where the deceased had a consignment valued about Three Million, five Hundred Thousand United State dollars ($3,500,000.00) has issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin or have the consignment confiscated within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two year (2) Year now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this consignment valued about Thirty-five Million ($3,500,000.00) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money, 50% to me and 50% for you. I will work out all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up this claim , all I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
