FEMI FALANA & ASSOCIATES (LEGAL PRACTITIONERS) # 12 ISAAC JOHN STREET IKEJA, LAGOS NIGERIA. RE: REGARDING LATE MR.YOSS I crave your indulgience for the unsolicited nature of this letter, but it was borne out of desperation and current development. Please bear with me. I am Barrister FemiFalana a solicitor at law. I was the Personal attorney to Mr. Louis Yoss, a national of your country, who used own an oil servicing company in Nigeria. Herein after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of November, 1999,my client, his wife and their three Children were involved in a car accident along sagamu express road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. I know that my client had no living kin but i went ahead and made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. I only did so to be double sure of this fact. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged, particularly the Union Bank Nigeria Plc. where the deceased had an account valued at about US$280,000,00 ,the bank has issued me a notice that in the event that no next of kin comes up for the claim, the account will be confiscated after four years if not claimed and We have just about one month. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 4 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$280, 000,00 (TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THOUSAND Dollars) can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 70% shall be for me and 25% for you while 5% is earmarked for expenses that will be incurred during the process of Transfer of the fund. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation 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. Please get in touch with me by my e-mail to enable us discuss further. Alternative email,email@example.com I look forward to your urgent response. Best regards, Barrister Femi Falana. Care2 make the world greener! Good People. Great Causes.
