Hello, My name is Barrister Don Shishi a solicitor at law. I was contacted by my bosom friend that works with the Barclays Bank Plc, here in London. My friend Mr. Mitchell Rothwell is one of the Directors in the Barclays Bank, he privately opened up to me that there is abandoned money in a foreigners Account which he has been monitoring for over Two years now, this foreigner happened to be a Nigerian Citizen and one of the top Government officials. After all necessary investigation with the name and the address he saw in the file of the Beneficiary, he now noticed that the Beneficiary of the Account died Four Years ago without any person to stand as a next of kin to him. It was yesterday my friend opened up this to me and instructed me to search for a reliable person who he will front as a Business partner to the deceased person in other to transfer the Deposited money (£48.9M) to the foreigners Account. We have concluded all necessary arrangement on this matter, and he has also briefed me on the kind of Documents needed to make claim of the above fund. I am writing you this Letter to ask if you are well-do and capable to handle this transaction, because the money we are talking about is not kidding money, so you have to be a well-do person before we can accept you to carry out this deal with us. Concerning all the necessary back up papers, as a Lawyer I will do my best to make sure all Documentations needed to carry out this deal in a successful manner are legally obtained by me that is my own part of the job. If this proposal interests you and you feel that you are capable to handle this deal, please do get back to me as soon as possible so that I introduced you to my friend before proceeding ahead.
