Dear Sir/ Madam I am Mr. Ahmed Sambo, I work with the office of the Director, Foreign Operation Department of Eco Bank Nig. Plc, Lagos Branch. It happened On the 2nd of May 2004, Engr. P.B Walter, a national of your country who used to work with Shell Petroleum Development Company In Nigeria (SPDC), my client, his wife And their three children were involved in a car accident along Shagamu Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then, Eco Bank NIG. PLC have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of the 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. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money that belong to your Uncle, before they get confiscated or declared unservice able by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about $18.6 Million Dollars has issued a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days. Since bank have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased, so that the proceeds of this account valued at $18.6 Million Dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money, 45% to you and 50% to me, while 5% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require, I have the Certificate of deposit 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 and your telephone number for easy communication. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me by my private email email@example.com to enable us discuss further. Thank you My Regards, Ahmed Sambo
