Dear one,

I am Mr.jim atta, a personal accountant to late Mr.Louis Wong,
a national of your country, who used to own an oil servicing 
company in Nigeria. On the 21st of April 2003, my client, his 
wife and their three Children were involved in a car accident
along Sagamu express road. All occupants of the vehicle
unfortunately lost their lives. A total sum of $30 million 
dollars was deposited by my client before his death which i was 
the personal accountant that managed his account. I know that my 
client had no living kin but I went ahead and made several 
inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended 
relatives but this has proved unsuccessful.

I only did so to be double sure of this fact.I contacted you to 
stand as the next of kin of the deceased as i have all the necessary 
information's for you to claim this fund because this bank are 
planning to confiscate the fund as they have waited for the past 
year and could not see any of the relation to claim this fund. 
The law of this bank stipulated that, after 5 years if no one comes 
to claim the fund,the bank will confiscate the fund and declare the
account as unserviceable. For the past years, I have been unsuccessful
in locating the relatives, now I seek your consent to present you to
the bank as the next of kin to the deceased. All I require is your 
honest co-operation 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. Please get in touch with me 
by my email or call me on phone to enable us discuss more. 

I look forward to your urgent response.
Best regards,
Mr.jim atta
