Dear Friend,
Before I start, I must appologise for this unsolited letter to you. I am aware that this is certainly an unconditional approach to start a
relationship,but as time goes on you will realise the need or my action. My name is Barrister Roland West,the Personal Attorney to Mr Frank Chamberlain, A foreigner who used to work with Mekon Associates company in Nigeria for 15 years and he was retired on the 30th day of March 2004. On the 4th of May,2004, my client and his wife ,got involved in a car accident, all occupants ofthe vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients 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 in repatriating the fund left behind by my late client because the bank have asked me as his lawyer to produce his next of kin.
Particularly, Bank have given me a notice to provide the next of kin to claim the contract valued at about US$9 Million Dollars or have the amount confiscates, since I have been unsuccessfully in locating the relatives for over years, now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since your a foreigner, so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$9 Million can be paid to you. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this dealt through .I guarantee that this will be executed undera legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law of
your country and my country too as a professional legal attorney in the
field.Finally, kindly maintain confidentiality between me and you on this transaction.
I agree to pay you 40% of the total fund as the account owner, 55% for me,while 5% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. Note: Some of the lawyers in my office have been planning to divert this particular amount of money US$9,000,000.00 but they failed because I never authorized anybody to do that, as the principal attorney of his estate. I urge your assistance to get this fund transfer into your account.
Legitimately which I am assuring you. Some lawyers may contact you in
different ways concerning this claim, don't respond to them, I advise you forward to me the message they send to you so that I can get them sacked and  arrested.
If you know it interests you, I advise you to forward the following
information of yours, to enable me present you to the finance house as the true next of kin to my late client.
