I know that this will come to you as a surprise as you do not know me but I believe that this will form the genesis of a long lasting relationship between us. Let me introduce my self and the reason why I write you, I am Mr. Frank Morris, Solicitor and Personal Attorney to Mr. Dennis, an indigene of your country who used to work as a Contractor with Diamond Melting & Mineral Exporting company, Pretoria, South Africa.
On the 21st of April 2000, my client was involved in a car accident along the Pretoria inter state High way unfortunately, he lost his live in the event of the accident, and is survived by an adopted child whom is living with me due to some circumstances, this has prompted me to contact you, I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives and this has proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I came across your name as you bare the same surname I decided to contact you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the firm where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the security firm where the deceased had a deposit valued at about $180 million Dollars (One Hundred and Eighty Million United States Dollars Only). Consequently, the Security.
Since I have been unsuccessful to locate the relatives for some years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you are the same country and surname so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you for both of us to share the money; 60% to me and 35% to you, 5% to charity. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up the claim. I will provide you with more information on this as we progress.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through my direct email: firstname.lastname@example.org directly to enable us discuss further.
Mr. Frank Morris.
