Name: Mr Robert Mason
Good day,
I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise, Please accept the content in good faith. I do 
not intend to cause any grief to you and your family. The reason for sending this mail is very 
fundamental to the doctrine of human privileges and right. My name is Mr Robert Mason an account 
Auditor and the personal Account officer to the deceased,who is also a national of your country who 
died along with his wife and two sons in the Tube explosion between King's Cross-and Russell Square 
in London.
My client was a successful and is an accomplished family man, who made enough fortune before his 
untimely death. Since then I had made several Inquiries through your Embassy to locate any of my 
clients extended relative but this exercise has proved unsuccessful. After several unsuccessful 
attempts, I decided to trace his relatives through the Internet, to locate any member of his 
family, not much progress was recorded. My late client was an influential wealthy businessman and a 
consultant with the London Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and he left behind a deposit of 
Twenty Five Million($25Million)
After the death of my client the senior officials of my bank contacted me, as his account officer 
to provide his next of kin who should inherit his funds. The board of directors of my bank adopted 
a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within 28 
Working days or forfeit the money to the bank as an abandoned property. My superior here in my bank 
had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after the 
expiration of the period given to me.
Fortunately, I came across your name, to my greatest astonishment, I discovered that you bear the 
same surname with my late client and coincidentally, you are nationals of the same country. I 
therefore, decided to contact with these facts before me, because of the similarities. By virtue of 
my closeness to the deceased and his immediate family, I am very much aware of my client financial 
standing and the bank account he operates. 
I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next 
of kin of my deceased client, so that you can be paid the funds left in his bank account. I 
therefore seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are at an 
advantage, bearing the same surname and equally from the same country that the proceeds of this 
Bank Account valued at ($25Million) can be paid to you. We shall both share the funds. 55% for me 
and 40% to you, while 5% should be for Expenses or your Government may require as Tax. 
I shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up your claim. All I 
require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this 
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. 
Please get in touch with me by email to enable us discuss further. 
I will be expecting to hear from you.
Mr Robert Mason
