My name is Barrister Azikiwe Nwaobodo . Of the above address and personal assistance to one (Mr. Franklin Brown) a national of your country now late. He died on his way to a seminar to Spain in auto crash on the 30th day of april 2005. My late boss was the chief executive officer of (african development oil company) for 25 years . He was re-contracted as a petroleum consultant to the company before this unfortunately incident occured on the above date just after a month. He left all his credentials with me for the drafting of his new contract agreement that will bind his new contract with african development company.
Before his death my boss made a numbered time (fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months valued at (us $25.450m) with the "BANCO STANDER SECURITY COMPANY MADRID SPAIN" with open beneficiary and no one will ever come forward to claim this fund since his sudden death and according to Spainish banking and Financial law the money will revert to the ownership of the Spain Government if the account Depositor is certified dead and nobody comes forward to claim it after five years. So far the bank has just written me a routine notification to provide the next of kin of late( Franklin Brown) or have the account confiscated within the next (21) official working days.
I would like to appoint you as the next of kin so that i can procceed with forwarding all the vital documents covering the sum of (us $25.450m) to you for safe keeping and our sharing on this is 50% - 50% basis. I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make.
All i require is your honest and co operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.Be noted that to make this claim you will travel to the Security Company in Spain. Because once i concluded the arrangement with you the Security Company will contact for payment.
Please acknowledge this letter if you're minded to assist through my

I will handle the whole process as soon as you respond back to this
proposal indicating your interest to assist with your information.
