Dear sir/madam ,
I am Barrister: BILLY, a solicitor at law, personal attorney to Mr.B.J.smith ,a national Of your 
country,who used to work with Shell Development Company in Lome Togo,as a registered contractor. 
Here in after shall be referred to as my client. and it happen that the man registered to me as his 
personal attorney.
Unfortunately the man died in a motor accident which happened on 31st October, 2004. All occupants 
of the motor accident 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 decided to track his last name over the 
Internet, to locate any member of his family hence i contacted you. I have contacted you to assist 
in repartrating the fund valued at US$16.5 million left behind by my client before it gets 
confisicated or declared unserviceable by the Security Finance Firm where this huge amount were 
deposited. The said Security Finance Company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or 
have his account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days. Since I have been 
unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 2years now, I seek the consent to present you as 
the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this 
account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss 
the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer.I have all necessary information and legal documents 
needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see 
this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be
executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
