Dear Friend,

I am Kevin Smith Esq., a senior advocate here in UK. I am the personal attorney to Eng. Robert, a national of your country, who was till his death a contractor with shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) here in UK. hereinafter shall be referred to as my client.

On the 21st of April 2005, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a fire outbreak in their residence. All the family members unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.

I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at 10,500,000.00 (ten million five hundred thousand pounds) left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the finance firm where this huge amount was deposited. The said finance company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next fourteen official working days. For the fact that i have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now, i seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same nationality as well as my client so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you while you compensate me in return and donate some part to charity homes.

I will provide the necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for the 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 legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law both in your country and that of the UK.

Please reply if you are interested for more details.

Best regards,

Kevin Smith Esq.
