Attorney & Solicitors Jonathan Baily Esq. LLb.Hons.SAN. Greetings , I am Barrister Jonathan Baily, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Mr. Johnson, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Nigeria. On the 21st of July, 2000, my client and his wife and their only daughter were involved in a plane crash accident. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy, and other embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proven to be unsuccessful contact to this transfer. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to look for any body who will be willing to assist me in recovering the fund valued at US$42.2 million left behind by my late client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank where this huge amount were deposited in. The Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next twenty one official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased hence; I have all the legal information to back you up for the claim. I will need your response so that we can proceeds on how these funds can be paid into your bank account legally and I hope this is okay by you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss on how we can disseminate the funds when it gets into your account. Please get in touch with me through this email: ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) Website. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/859479.stm) Best regards, Attorney & Solicitors Jonathan Baily Esq.
