ATTENTION,DEAR TRUSTING FRIEND I am making this contact to you on the fact that we may be of assistance to each other in developing a long lasting cordial business relationship, if you put your trust in God that this will work out forther benefit of my own family and yours. I was moved by my personal inspiration to entrust on your sincerity to handle a business , I am Barrister Joseph Lyon.indegen of newzeland, I have a client Mr.Mark ,who bears this same last name with you, a foreigner who used to work with Mekon Associates Company here in London. On the 2nd of August 2005, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Manchester Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the internet, to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they got confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance House where these huge deposits were lodged in a consignment trunk box. Particularly, the Finance House where the deceased deposited the consignment trunk box ( Funds ) has issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin or have the consignment confiscated within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 1 year now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this consignment valued at USD$6.5M can be released to you and then you and I can share the money; 50% to me and 50% to you, and i am the only person that knows the content of the consignment even the financial house don't know the content. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make, all I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction 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 first by my secured and confidential email immediately you acknowledge the good receipt of this message.Anticipating your prompt response.
