you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and
property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or
declared unserviceable by the bank where these huge deposits were
lodged, particularly the STANDARD TRUST BANK PLC. Where the deceased had
an account Valued at about ($3.472,000 Million U S Dollars) has issued

years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the
deceased since you have the same last name so that the proceeds of this
account valued at ($3.472,000 Million U S Dollars) can be paid to you
and then you and me Can share the money. 50% to me and 45% to you,The
