Dear Sir, Sorry to communicate you in this manner. It is due to the urgency required. My name is Mr. Jude Peters, a lawyer to late Mr Erick Board from your country,who died in a plane crash here in Nigeria during the reign of late General Sani Abacha. since the demise of my client, Mr Erick Board , was an oil Merchant/contractor, and being the manager of his property, I have kept a close watch over his properties and funds in African Express Bank and since then nobody has come to claim the properties/ money in his a/c as next of kin to the late Mr Erick Board. He had only $28.5 mllion in his a/c no:2590074169 and the a/c is coded.It is only an insider that could produce the code or password of the deposit particulars. As it stands now, there is nobody in that position to produce the needed information other than my very self considering my position as the manager to his wealth. Based on the reason that nobody has come forward to claim the deposit as next of kin, I hereby ask for your cooperation in using your name as the next of kin to my late client to send these funds out to a foreign offshore bank a/c for mutual sharing between myself and you. At this point I am the only one with the information to the claim. What is required of you is to send an application laying claims of the deposit as next of kin to the late Mr Erick Board. I will need your full name and address,company or residential, telephone and fax numbers so I can commence the documentations to validate your name and details as the next of kin. Finally i want you to understand that the request for a foreigner as the next of kin is ocassioned by the fact that my client was a foreigner and for that reason alone a local cannot represent as next of kin. When you contact me, then we shall discuss on how the money will be split between us. Trusting to hear from you. Respectfully yours, Mr. Jude Peters (Esq)p
