I NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE (NEXT OF KIN)
Attn: Dear Friend, I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise,please accept the content in good faith. I do not intend to cause any grief to you and your family.The reason for sending this mail is very fundamental to the doctrine of human privileges and right. I am Barrister Henshaw Heintiger, a solicitor at law, personal attorney to a national of your country Mr. Nick Allison and used to work with his Company in Lagos, Nigeria. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 25TH FEB 2002, my client,his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along Sagamu 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 relatives,this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts,I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client, so that you can be paid the funds left in his finance firm. I therefore seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are at an advantage,equally from the same country, that the proceeds of this finance firm valued at US$15Million can be paid to you. We shall both share the funds. 40% for you and 40% for me, 5% should be for expenses or your Government may require Taxes, while 15% to charities. The said finance Firm has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confisicated. I expect your urgent response indicating your full interest in this great business to our both mutual trust.Your telephone and fax number will be needed for our easy communication.
