Dear    Mark Urquhart-Webb

I am Barrister Banigo  Briggs, a solicitor at law, personal attorney to Engr.P.B  Webb a national Of your country,who used to be a contractor and importer here in Lome Togo. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2001, my client,his wife and their only daughter were involved in a ghasty motor accident along Nouvissi express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended family relatives, this is to no avail.
After these several unsuccessful attempts,I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$12 million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the Security Finance Firm where this huge amount were deposited.
The said Security Finance Company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days.
Since I have been unsuccesful in locating the relatives for over 2years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, 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
On the receipt of your response i will furnish you with detailed clarification as it relates to this mutual benefit transaction.
Best Regards.
Barr. Banigo Briggs
