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 client. I would want you to furnish me with the following informations which will assist me in this claim, 1,FULL NAME 2,CONTACT ADDRESS 3,TELEPHONE AND FAX 4,OCCUPATION. These information will assist me to secure the necessary papers in your name When I receive your response. I await your reply, BARR.RICHARD ABEKU (esq)
