I am contacting you to propose a deal that will be of high benefit to both of us. I am Barrister Franklin Goubadia. I am the personal attorney to late MR. BRONISLAW GEREMEK, a Polish citizen who was a Category "A" contractor to the Nigerian Government before he died in a car crash on July 13, 2008.
I am contacting you because the payment of Twenty Two Million United States Dollars for the last contract he did for Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in 2006. INEC is ready to pay for the contract now but there is no one to receive the payment because he has no Next-of-Kin in his file at INEC, hence I have been mandated by INEC as his attorney to provide an âappointed Next-of-Kinâ for the claim of the money. On this capacity, therefore, I seek your consent to present you as an appointed Next-of-Kin, so that this contract payment will be released and paid to you.
Once the payment is made to you, we will share it at the ratio of 50/50. That is, Eleven Million for you and Eleven Million for me. I must let you know that your name and place of residence does not matter in this process. Understand that we will not be doing wrong to humanity by claiming the payment because if we do not claim it, the government will retain it as nobody is to receive the funds as his next-of-kin. I want to assure you that this will be done under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I will provide all the legal documents to back up the claim. The most important thing I need is your honest cooperation.
If you are interested in this offer, kindly indicate by sending the following details to me for immediate submission of claim application to the INEC. The details I need from you are: (1) your full name. (2) Your full address. (3) Your age & occupation. (4) Your private telephone and fax numbers. Let me hear from you.
Barr. Franklin Goubadia.
