I am Barrister Mustafer Adamu , a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Richard.N.Williams, a national of your country, who used to work with Ashland Oil Petroleum Development Company in Nigeria. My client, his wife and their 4 children were involved in the recent TSUNAMI FLOOD DISASTER while on vacation . All members of the family unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy and many other embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. I decided to track down a reliable partner over the Internet, to locat any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in recovering the fund valued at US$21.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the Bank where this huge amount were deposited. The said Bank has issued me a notice recently to provide the next of kin or have the account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days.Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives, hence I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since i am conviced beyond doubt that my late client has no existing relative, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer.I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please send your response to me to this private email (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) Best regards, Barr. Mustafer Adamu
