Hello, I am Mr. Johnson Walter, a personal Lawyer to Dr.L.Precieuse,a foreign national who was an oil merchant in my Country-Lome Togo. I based in London and would like us to handle the transaction from London here. My client left behind Ј4.6 Million (Four Million, Six Hundred Thousand British Pounds only) in a bank here in London before he died in a fatal automobile accident with his family some years ago. The bank here has issued me a notice to come forward as his lawyer for the claim or have his account confiscated within the next fourteen official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any relatives of my client, I would like you to stand as the next of kin since you are a foreigner so that the bank can release the fund to your account. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall discuss on the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer. I have all necessary information needed to back up this claim and I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect both of us from any breach of the law. It is important you get in touch with me urgently through my private email address below to enable us commence action. Best regards. Mr. Johnson Walter
