Greetings to you,

I am Barrister. RICHARD ABEKU (Esq.), a legal practitioner. My client was  a member board of

Before his death, I assisted him to deposit the sum of $15.5.00Million ( Fifteen Million Five

The funds have remained unclaimed since his death, Considering the lack of success to locate any of 
his relatives for over a year now,I hereby solicit your consent to enable me present you as the 
Next of Kin to my deceased client and you will then give instructions to the Security Company to 
transfer the deposited funds into another account you will provide, after which we shall then share 
the funds upon agreed terms.
