Attention I am Barrister Robert Junion solicitor at law, personal attorney to Enginner B P. Bhatt, a nationality of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Abidjan Cote d'ivoire. Here in after Shall Development Company be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2006, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along Nouvissi express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here in COTE D'IVOIRE, to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$64.8 million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the BANK - COTE D'IVOIRE, where this huge amount were deposited. The said Bank has issued me a notice to provide to them the next of kin or have his account confisicated within the next days. Since I have been unsuccesfull in finding his relatives for over 2 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last name with him, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you as the next of kin to the depositor. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response on this claim, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities on the transfer of the fund. Meanwhile I have all the necessary information and legal documents needs to back you up for the claim. All I required from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through this more details about the claim. Best Regards. Barrister.Robert Junion
