Attn: sir I am Barrister Festus Keyamo, a solicitor in law. I am the personal Attorney to late Engr.Thomas O Hara, a national of United States of America, who is a Contractor with TOTAL Oil and have spent most of his life in this country (Nigeria) Here in after, shall be referred to as my client. On the 11th Of March 2004, my client, his wife and their only son were involved in a Train bombing accident in Atocha Train Station here in Madrid Spain. All occupants of the Train unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to the embassy 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 all to no avail. Hence, I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the assets and Capital valued at (US$11. 5M) left behind by my late client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the First Bank of Nigeria Plc where these huge deposits were lodged. The First Bank of Nigeria Plc has issued me a notice last week to provide the Next of Kin or have the account confiscated within the next twenty Official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 5 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the Next of kin to the deceased, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ration and modalities for the transfer. I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. As soon as you indicate an interest, send me an e-mail with the below details. 1. Your full name and address 2. Your telephone and fax number Waiting to hear from you. Best regards, Barr.
