kashi Hongoku-cho
Chuo-ku, Tokyo 103-8660
Name: Mr. Katsuya Nakai
I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise, Please accept the content 
in good faith. I do not intend to cause any grief to you and your family. The 
reason for sending this mail is very fundamental to the doctrine of human 
privileges and right. My name is Mr Katsuya Nakai an account Auditor and the 
personal Account officer to the deceased, who is also a national of your country 
who died along with his wife and two sons in the Tube explosion between 
Momochihama, Sawara-ku Fukuoka the northeastern part of the former Sawara-gun 
here in Japan.
My client was a successful and is an accomplished family man, who made enough 
fortune before his untimely death. Since then I had made several Inquiries 
through your Embassy to locate any of my clients extended relative but this 
exercise has proved unsuccessful. After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided 
to trace his relatives through the Internet, to locate any member of his family, 
not much progress was recorded. My late client was an influential wealthy 
businessman, and a consultant with the Japanese Institute of Mining and 
Metallurgy here in Japan and he left behind a deposit of Twelve Million Two 
Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only ($12.2Million USD).
After the death of my client the senior officials of my bank contacted me, as 
his account officer to provide his next of kin who should inherit his funds. The 
board of directors of my bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide 
his next of kin for the payment of this money within 28 Working days or forfeit 
the money to the bank as an abandoned property. My superior here in my bank had 
planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds 
after the expiration of the period given to me.
Fortunately, I came across your name, to my greatest astonishment; I discovered 
that you and our late client are same nationals. Being convinced that you may be 
related with my late client or that you might provide clue to my search, I 
therefore, decided to contact with these facts before me, because of the 
similarities. By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate 
family, I am very much aware of my client financial standing and the bank 
account he operates.
I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to 
present you as the next of kin of my deceased client, so that you can be paid 
the funds left in his bank account. I therefore seek your consent to present you 
as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are at an advantage, and equally 
from the same country that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at 
US$12,200,000.00, (Twelve Million Two Hundred United state Dollars) can be paid 
to you. We shall both share the funds. 55% for me and 40% to you, while 5% 
should be for Expenses or your Government may require as Tax. 
I shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up 
your claim. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this 
deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate 
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. Please get in touch 
with me by email to enable us discuss further. I will be expecting to hear from 
Mr. Katsuya Nakai
