Dear Friend,
I am Barrister Musa Idris, a solicitor at law, personal attorney to 
Engr. Jack Doe, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Lome 
Togo.Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of 
April 2000, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved 
in a gastly car accident along Kpalime express Road. 

All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives.Since then 
I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my 
clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccesfull. After 
these several unsuccesfull attempts, in my desprate search for urgent 
assistance, I decided to track his last name over the foreign mission 
guestbook,to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. 

I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at 
USD$12.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated 
or declared unserviceable in the (B.I.A) here in Lome-Togo,where this 
huge amount were deposited And now the bank 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 2 years 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 re ceipt of your positive responce, 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. Please, urgent response to this letter will be proudly 
appreciated. I would like you to forward the following to enable we 
start immediately
