I am Mr,Tan Razak a financial consultant and Associates in Nigeria, I have an urgent business transaction for you.l had a late foreign client of mine Engineer Patrick Brian Richards from Birmingham Australia, he was into a Road construction in Nigeria, and he Deposited.US$8,000,000.00 (Eight Million Dollars) with a financial institution in my Country. Upon maturity. The financial institution sent a routine notification to the forwarding address but got no reply. After a month another reminder was sent to my chamber as the local attorney. Finally they discovered from me how my Client died with High blood pressure on the 30th November 2006, because he lost his wife and the only Son in 2004 tsunamis natural disaster while on their holiday in Phuket Thailand . You may visit the website below for more clarification regarding my proposition to you. http://faculty.washington.edu/moberle/Tsunami/Tsunami.htm The funds are still in the custody of the financial institution and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. According to the Laws of West Nigeria, at the expiration of 6 (SIX) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Nigeria Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. My proposal is that I will like to present you as a foreigner from Australia for the transfer as the only know relative to my late client this means that the proceeds of his fund will be paid to you as the legitimate beneficiary relative presented by me. When the proceeds of his funds are paid to you, We would share the proceeds on a mutually agreed-upon percentage, I have already developed a full proof legal and totally risk free, means through which the investment can be transferred to the beneficiary that l will present before the financial institution, If you will be Capable and to be honest to me I shall provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand and secure the transaction. So that all the paperwork will be done in your name as the relative. But please consider if we can work together as partner and send your telephone numbers for easy communication. Awaiting your Response. My Direct E-mail Address Is Yours Sincerely, Barrister. Tan Razak, Senior Advocate. [---+234 8053328340---]
