Dear Sir, I am Barrister Abdul Hassan, a solicitor at law and apersonal/family attorney to an expatriate business man (crude Oil merchantand contractor) who was based in Nigeria. Unfortunately my client was killed by the restive militantyouths of the Niger Delta region while on board a crude oil loading vesselin the Forcados/escravos jetty on the 5th of March, 2003. Ever since then, I have made several Inquiries in theembassy to locate any of "my late client extended relatives but thishas proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decidedto use your channel, hence I contacted you. It does not necessary matterif you are either related by blood or not." My client left 18.5 millionUSD in a security vault of a security and finance company which I willdisclose to you. I have contacted you after my conviction that this moneycan still be claimed by a third party before they get confiscated sincethere is a government gazette mandating/authorizing banks and other financialinstitutions to place on hold or freeze any account containing huge sumsof money that has been unserviceable for a reasonable period of time. Note that you will be rewarded with 40% while my contactin the security company and bank 5% , myself 50%, and 5% will be to reimbursein any expenses as will be incurred in the course of the pursuance of theclaim of inheritance sum . I am sincerely seeking your assistance and I guaranteethat this will be carried within the ambits of the law to protect us fromany legal breach. As you indicate your interest, please send along the followingsto me, to begin the execution of the claim at the court here in your favour:- 1. Your full names and address. 2. Your age, occupation and sex. 3. Your telephone and fax number (if any) for quick communicationand also for updates. FOR MORE INFORMATION OF EXECUTION, I AWAIT YOUR QUICKRESPONSE, Please forward your reply to my private email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Your soonest response is anticipated. Thank you.
