until his death has an account with a bank here with a closing balance of 
(us$15m) fifteen Million Dollars and since his death nobody has come up to
claim this money from this bank. Since then I have made several enquiries
to locate any of my client's relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you.

The main reason why I have contacted you is for you to assist in
repatriating the money and properties left behind by my client before they
get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance Company where
this huge deposits were lodged, this bank where my late client had this
account valued at about (us$15m) fifteen Million Dollars has issued me a
notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated. Since I
have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years, so I
seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so
that the proceeds of this account valued at (us$15m) fifteen Million
Dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 50%
for me and 40% for you and 10% will be used for any expenses that this
might cost on the process of this transaction.
I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim
we may make.   All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see
this deal through. I guarantee that this transaction will be executed
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of
the law. It is 100% risk-free.
Waiting for your respond

Best regards,

John Pitman
