FROM: JAMES WHITE (ESQ) GAU THUO& ASSOCIATES #18 RUZ LOME TOGO. ATTN, I am Barrister JAMES WHITE,A Solicitor. I am the Personal Attorney to Mr. George Brumley,A national of your country, who used to work with Chrome Development Company in Togo. On the January 2000 , my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Lumba Express Road. Unfortunately they all lost their lives in the event of the accident. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you to assist in repartrating the money left behind by my client in a Security Company here in Togo lome. Particularly, the Security Company where the deceased deposited the two trunk boxes containing $15Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars Only) does not know the content of the two trunk boxes deposited with them. Consequently, the Security Company issued me a notice to provide the Next-of-Kin to claim the two trunk boxes in their custody within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin of the deceased to claim the two trunk boxes since you are from the same country so that the two trunk boxes can be delivered to you by the security company. Upon receipt of the two trunk boxes, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursment of the fund, and then you and me can share the money. 60% to me and 40% to you. I have all necessary legal documents that can back up any claim we may make with the Security Company. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed legitimate,Get in touch with me by my secured and confidential e-mail Best regards BARR JAMES WHITE.
