Company/Finance institution in Turkey and unfortunately lost his life in one of the bomb blast in 
Iraq, see link for verification ( He left no

Recently, the governing body of the Security Company/Finance institution contacted me on this 
matter, requesting that I should notify the next of kin of my late client to claim the funds and I 
am yet to provide the Next of Kin to lay claims to the Fund. I know that my client had no living 
next of kin but i have made lots of search to see if i can get in contact to any of his relatives

legitimate agreement with you, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin so that my 
late client's fund will not be confiscated by the Financial Regulatory Authority. You and I will 
share the money, you will be entitled to 40% of the total fund for your role as the relative and 
next of kin of my late client, 60% for me. Be informed that there is no risk involved as all 
necessary legal document which will be used to back you up as the legal beneficiary and next of kin 
of my late client will be procured. All I require is your sincerity, honesty, co-operation and 
utmost good faiths to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under 
a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Kindly, get in touch
