п»їPETER ONAH & Associates Law chambers 44, Kofo Abayomi Avenue, Victoria Island, Lagos-Nigeria. RE:LETTER OF ASSISTANCE/PARTNERSHIP DEAR SIR/MADAM Kindly accept my apology for sending unsolicited mail to you. I believe you are a highly respected personality, considering the fact that I sourced your profile from a human resource profile database on your country. I am Peter Onah . The Personal Attorney to late Mr. Steve Anderson a national of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Nigeria. On the 21st of April 2009, my client, his wife and their two children were involved in a car accident along Sagamu Express way in a Peugeot 504 with the Registration Number LA9657CK, All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet, to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money that belong to my late client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposits is lodged. The bank where the deceased have this account valued at about US$15million (FIFTEEN MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS) have issued me a notice to provide the next of kin to my late client or have the account confiscated within the next seven official working days. Since i have been unsuccessful in locating the right relatives for over 5 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since i can not get the rightful beneficiary,so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$15 million (FIFTEN MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS) can be paid to you and then we can share the money at the ratio 55% to me and 40% to you, while 5% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require, I have the certificate of deposit that can be used to back up any claim we may make, All I require is your honest cooperation 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. Thanks for your understanding as i wait your reply. EMAIL ME HERE. email@example.com. Best Regards, BARRISTER PETER ONAH, PRINCIPAL PARTNER
