Attention Please
I am Barrister Frank Mike (Esq). I had a client who
shared the same surname with you.He was a Citizen of
your Country and worked with MULTI-MEDIA PARTNERS
On the 2nd of August 2003, my client, his wife and
their three children were involved in a car accident
along Manchester Express Road. All occupants of the
vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. 
Since then, I have made several frantic enquiries at
your Embassy here in London, to locate any of my
client's extended relatives, this has also proved no
success.After these  series of unsuccessful attempts,
I decided to trace his relatives over the internet, to
locate any member of his family ,but to no avail,
hence I contacted you.

I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating the
money left behind by my client before they got it
confiscated or declared it unserviceable by the
Finance House where this money was deposited.
Particularly and more seriously, the Finance House
where the deceased made a deposit valued at US$20M.
They gave me an ultimatum to provide the next-of-kin
within the shortest possible time or  have the funds
indefinitely confiscated within the next ten official
working days. 
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the 
relatives for over nine (9) months now, I therefore
seek your consent as a last resort to present you as
the next of kin to the deceased (My Late Client) so
that the proceeds of this deposit valued at US$20M 
can be paid to you and then you and I can share the
money among ourselves in the following ratio: 60% to
me, 35% to you and the last 5% should be for expenses
or tax as your government may required. 
I have all  the necessary legal documents that can be
used to back up any claim we may make, all I require
is your honest co-operation and sincerity to enable us
see this transaction through. I guarantee that this
will be executed under a very legitimate arrangement
that will protect both of us from any breach of the
law, and my profession as a lawyer guarantees that. 
I shall highlight the necessary steps to take soon as
I acknowledge your anticipated affirmative reply. 
Most Sincerely,
Victoria Chambers,
GreenBelt Zone,London, Uk.
