Dear Sir, 

I am Barrister Ahmed Yusuf personal attorney to
 a national of your country, who was
Working with an oil firm here in Nigeria, herein
after shall be referred to as my client. On the 27th
of May 2002, my client, his wife and their only
child were involved in a ghastly motor accident
along an express road here in the capital city.
Unfortunately, all occupants of the vehicle lost their
lives as the vehicle caught fire after the crash.
Since then I have made several enquiries to your
embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives
this has also proved unsuccessful. 

My purpose of contacting you is to assist in
repatriating the money and property left behind by my
client prior to his death before they get confiscated
or declared unserviceable by the security company 
where this huge deposits were lodged particularly, the
Finance/Security Company where the deceased had a deposit
valued at
about US$17.8 Million dollars. The security company
had issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or
have the account confiscated within 
the next 14 official working days 

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the
relatives for over 2 years now I seek your consent to
present you as the next of kin of the deceased since
you have the same last name/surname so that the
proceeds of this account valued at US$17.8 million
dollars can be paid to you and then we can share the
money afterwards. All I require is your honest
co-operation to enable us in seeing this deal through.
I guarantee that this will be executed under
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through my 
email address to enable us discuss further.
Please get in touch with 
through this email address:

Expecting your urgent response.

Best regards, 
Barrister.Ahmed Yusuf Esq
