Compliments of the day to you.

I am Barr.ABEKU (Esq.), a legal practitioner. My client who was  a member board of trustees SPDC 
London was killed with his entire  family in a fatal accident,sparing none of their lives, some 
years ago. Before his death, I assisted him in the deposit of some funds with a Security Company 
for safekeeping.The funds have remained unclaimed  since his death, and such unclaimed funds are 
appropriated and returned to the treasury as a matter of policy. Considering the lack of success in 
my bid 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.

I am contacting you for two reasons. Firstly, you  both have the same last name, which makes the 
claim most credible. Secondly, I strongly believe that the Security Company does not deserve to 
inherit the funds, These reasons led to my resolve to claim the funds which was why I contacted 
you,With your permission, I will proceed to establish you as the next of kin/Beneficiary to my late 

I would  want you to furnish me with the following informations which will assist me  in this claim,





These information will assist me to secure the necessary papers in your name When I receive your 
I await your reply,
