Greetings My Dear,
My name is Mr. Charles Collins,a Banker and accountant with the BIAOBANK Abidjan. I am the personal accounts manager to Mr. Robert, a National of your country, who used to work with an oil servicing company here in Cote d'Ivoire.
My client, his wife and their three children were involved in the Kenya Airways crash in the coasts of Abidjan in January 2000 in which al l passengers on board died. Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but all my effort has not been successful. After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his last name over the Internet to see if I could locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.
Our deceased client ( Mr.Robert Flores) has an account valued to ($ 6 million US Dollars). The management of our bank have issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or the bank will declare the account unserviceable and thereby send the funds to the bank treasury.
Since I have not been successful in locating the relatives of the late Mr. Robert Flores, I will seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased client so that the proceeds of this account valued at ($ 6 million US dollars) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money.
All i require is yo ur honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under all legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. In your reply if you can handle this deal with me, reach me now through this e-mail for more details.
Anticipating your cooperation.
