Dear Associate, Greeting's with good faith. I am Barrister Natrobo Ibiminasiari, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to a national of your country, who used to work with Shell Ghana Limited (SHL) in Ghana. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 27th of January 2007, my client, his wife and only child were involved in a car accident here in my country. My client and his family unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but all to no avail. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Electronic Search, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the finance company where the deceased had an account valued at about USD$10 million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next few weeks. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years now. I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name so that the proceeds of this account valued at USD$10 million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money in the following ration: 60% to me and 35% to you, and also 5% for any expenses that may be incurred during the process of this transaction, telephone bills. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. To be honest with you, I have worked out the modalities of this transaction. All I require is your sincere 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 the law. Please if you are interested to work with me with good faith and honesty, get in touch with me by my email and send to me your telephone, fax number and private email to enable us discuss further on this transaction, and also your banking details and address where this fund will be released into. I would prefer a virgin account for this transfer. I hope to hear further response from you regards the successful conclusion of this great transaction. God bless you. Best regards, Barrister Natrobo Ibiminasiari. http://www.udo.edu.ve Universidad de Oriente - Venezuela.
