Hello Dear,
I am pleased to send my greetings. I am barrister MIKE JONES, a solicitor
at law.i am the personal attorney to Late Mr.Morris Thompson who use to
work with shell development company in nigera. I am writing following a
discovery i made after the death of my client that will be of immense
benefit to both of us. I have contacted you to assist in recovering the fund
valued at US$15.6 million left behind by my client deposited in one of the
prime bank in nigeria .my Late master Mr. Morris Thompson an American who
unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261
which crashed on January 31st 2000, including his wife and only daughter.
You shall read more about the crash on visiting this
website.( tml Since his
death, i have been expecting his next of kin or relatves to come over and
claim his money because the bank cannot release the funds unless somebody
applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in
bank's policy. Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being
his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with
the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this
discovery that I decided to contact you to apply for the claims of the fund
with the bank for the release of the money to you as the next of kin or
beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement
since althoughy i do not know you nor have seen or met you in my life as
nobody is coming for it and i don't want this money to continue unclaimed
with the bank's treasury . I agreed that 40% of this money will be for you
as partner,while the ballance will be for me . I will visit your country for
the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this
money gets into your account. Please be honest to me and trust has to be
our watchword in this transaction. Note this transaction is confidential and
risk free. As soon as you receive this mail, you should contact me mail
whether or not you are willing to enter into this deal. In the event you are
not interested, I sincerely ask that you disregard this email and tell no
one about it. I am very careful about my future as a lawyer should you
mention this to someone else. I hope you can be trusted in this regard.
Please note that all necessary legal documents for the smooth release of
these funds to you shall be handled by me being the attorney to the
deceased.I will discuss much in details when I do receive your response .
Please in your response include your telephone number and fax umber for a
better communication between us. yours sincerely,
Barr. Mike Jones.
