The sender was Barrister Ibe Allen <email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
It is obvious that this proposal will come to you as a surprise. This is because we have not met before but i am inspired to sending you this email by the huge fund transfer opportunity that will be of mutual benefit to the two of us.
However, I am Barrister Ibe Allen, the Personal Attorney to the late Engr.Steve Moore a national of Isle in UK who used to work with Shell Petroleum Development Company(SPDC) in Nigeria. On the 21st of April 1996, my client, his wife And their three children were involved in a Car accident along Sagamu/Lagos Express Road.
Unfortunately they all lost their lives in the event of the accident, Since then I have made several inquiries to several Embassies to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you.
I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client can easily convince the bank with my legal practice that you are the only surviving relation of my client. Otherwise the Estate he left behind will be confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposit was lodged.
Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about $27Million U.S Dollars(Twenty Seven Million U.S.America Dollars).Consequently, The bank issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over several years now seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased that the proceeds of this account valued at $27Million U.S Dollars can be paid to your account and then you and me can share the money thus:
1. You as the Originator of the Fund will take 50% of the transferable Fund.
2. You as the Manager of the Fund will take 50% of the transferable Fund.
I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guaranttee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I will also appreciate that you forward to me your information as requested below.Send your reply to my alternative email address:(firstname.lastname@example.org)
