confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where my client lodged these huge 
deposits.Particularly,the bank where the deceased had an account valued at about US$25,000,000.00 
(Twenty five Million,united states dollars)Consequently, the bank issued me a notice to provide the 
next of kin or have his account confiscated within a short time.Since I have been unsuccessful in 
locating the relatives for over some years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of 
kin of the deceased since you share the same Name so that the processing of the account valued at 
US$25,000,000.00 can be paid to you for both of us to share the funds; 55%me and 45% to you, while 
5% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require.
