CHIEF ALFRED IBRU (BL, LLB-HONS.) C/O PEDERSEN & CO. 393 OLD OJO ROAD, AMUWO ODOFIN, LAGOS-NIGERIA. EMAIL:email@example.com BE THE NEXT OF KIN TO MY LATE CLIENT Dear Brandi, I am Barr.Alfred Ibru(Esq) personal attorney to Engr.Michael Brandi, a national of your country, who worked with Zenon Oil Company here in Nigeria herein after, shall be referred to as my client.My client with his entire family (The wife and Children) were among the victims of an explosion in Lagos, Nigeria, that happened on January 27, 2002 which, claimed many lives and property. See the 2 website of the bomb explosion below: - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/2718295.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/2698081.stm I have made several inquiries to your embassy after his internment to locate any of his extended relatives, but all this has proved unsuccessful.Consequently, I decided to trackr his last name over the Internet, to locateany member of his family which resulted in my contact with you. My purpose of contacting you is to assist in epatriating the deposited fund of US$15Million USD that was lodged in by my late client in a bank when he was alive. The repatriation is as a result of a fourteen days notice (ultimatum) that has been issued to me by the bank requesting me to presentto them a next of kin to my late client so that the fund would be repatriated to him/her. Failure to do that after the expiration of the ultimatum will result in the confiscation and freezing of the account by the bank. For the fact that I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years plus now, I now seek your consent to present you as the next kin to the deceased since you have the same last name with my client, so that the fund would be transferred to you.Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, I shall officially present you to the bank as the next of kin to the inheritance so that they will commence the processing of your fund transfer.Moreover, I would want you to feed me with the following details: Your Full name: Age: Sex: Phone Number and Fax if any: Occupation: Furthermore, what I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transactions through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please reply me as soon as possible for us to start this transaction in earnest. Yours faithfully, Alfred Ibru Esq.
