The sender was Mr.Jim atta <>, although it may have been spoofed.



I am Mr.jim atta, a personal accountant to late Mr.Louis 
Wong,a national of your country, who used to own an oil 
servicing company in Nigeria. On the 21st of April 2003, 
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. 

A total sum of $30 million dollars was deposited by my 
client before his death which i was the personal accountant 
that managed his account. 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 contacted 
you to stand as the next of kin of the deceased as i have 
all the necessary information's for you to claim this fund 
because this bank are planning to confiscate the fund as 
they have waited for the past years and could not see any 
of the relation to claim this fund. 

The law of this bank stipulated that, after 5 years if no 
one comes to claim the fund,the bank will confiscate the 
fund and declare the account as unserviceable. For the past 
years, I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives, 
now I seek your consent to present you to the bank as the 
next of kin to the deceased. 

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 
private phone +2348024980495 and email ( 
to enable us discuss more and how to share the funds after 
the successful conclussion. 

I look forward to your urgent response. 
Best regards, 
jim atta
