Good Day, 
I am Barrister Mike Potter (Esq) a solicitor at law.I am the personal attorney to late Engr. Kim, who worked with a Multi-National Oil Firm in Nigeria, unfortunately lost his life in a car accident along sagbama express road, on 21st April 2006. Since he death of Late Kim, I as his personal attorney have made several enquiries to locate his relations, without any success. 
I came across your name and contact on the course of my personal searching for Kim's relations, so I decided to contact you for this project.  I am contacting you to assist in repatriating and securing the wealth left behind in a fixed deposit account by Late Kim, before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by Bank where my client operates an account worth $USD15.6 Million Dollars.The Bank has issued me a notice that after 2 months from now and no next of kin shown up for the claiming of the said funds, the funds will be confiscated and declared unserviceable.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating Late Kim's relatives for years now, it on this note that I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased since you are bearing the same last name with him, so that the proceed of this deposit valued at $USD15.6 Million Dollars can be released to you for our disbursements.
All I requires is your honest cooperation to enable us see this business successful.  I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement which will protect you from any breach of the law. Late Kim was a very good man and it is not wise for me to allow his hard earned wealth to be stolen by the greedy directors of the Bank. Further details await your response by email. 
Please send us your: 
[1] Full Name and Contact address:
[2] Direct Telephone No:
[3] Age and occupation.
Let me hear from you once you acknowledge my email.
Yours faithfully,
Barrister  Mike Potter(Esq).
