Country, KARA STATE.

Forty Five Thousand United States Dollars) left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or 
declared unserviceable by the Security Company in Lome/Togo my residing nationality country by 
birth, where this huge amount was deposited in a Consignment Luggage, under the coverage of family 
valuables, The said Security Company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have this 
Consignment Luggage confiscated within the next seven (7) working official days as they don't know 
the content of the Consignment Luggage, that it is money that is in the Consignment Luggage.

Since i have been unsuccessfully in locating the relatives of my late client, I seek your attention 
to present you as the next of kin deceased of my late client, so that the proceedings of his 
Consignment Luggage can be transfer to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we 
shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfers as I have every necessary 
information and legal documents needed to back you up for the claim.  

You are related with my late client or not, all I need is your urgent respond so that we can both 
achieve this aim together undue the advantage of the trust I have bestowed on you before contacting 
you. Legal information you need mostly to present to the Security Company as the next of kin to my 
late client, is with me in my Chambers.
