EMAIL:firstname.lastname@example.org ESQ Achuzia Obi Phone: +447707-3583-28 Dear Friend, I crave your indulgence to kindly attend to this in good faith. I do not mean any disrespect approaching you through this medium, it is due to the time constrain of this matter. I am Barrister Alex Ogene, a legal practitioner and the personal Attorney to Mr. Shinsuke Ota a nationality of Japan hereinafter referred to as 'my client'. My late client Mr. Shinsuke Ota and his family was involved in the 5th of November 2000 fatal auto crash along A 4O6 express way in the United Kingdom in which people were burnt to death, unfortunately my client and his family lost their lives. My late client was an oil magnet working with Chevron Oil here in the United Kingdom and had left behind a deposit of Nine Million Eight Hundred Thousand Brittish Pounds only(9.8million GBP) with THE UNITY TRUST BANK LONDON WWW.UNITYTRUSTBANK <http://www.unitytrustbank/>. After the death of my client,the Bank contacted me,as his Attorney to provide his next of kin who should inherit his fortune,this according to them is their policy in sure circumstances. But Since his death I have made several Enquiries through his Embassy to locate any of my client's extended relative but this exercise has proved unsuccessful.I had to inform the Bank about my fruitless effort in locating my late client close relative or his next of kin. The board of directors of the Bank now adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within the next 15 official working days or forfeit the money as an abandoned fund.The Bank had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me but after an investigation in the BANK,I found out that some members of the BANK wants to divert this fund into their private accounts for their own selfish interest. They want to use the excuse that since I am not able to find any of his relative to make the claim,the money should be made unserviceable and that means submitting the fund to the federal government of this country and some to the company management which is not their main intentions. By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate family,I am very much aware of my client financial standing.I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client.This is legally possible and would be done in accordance with the laws of the land.I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are at an advantage regards to the provision of an off-shore bank account that will be used receiving the fund,so that the proceeds of This Bank Account valued at 9.8 Million Pounds can be paid to you before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge deposit were lodged.Note that this is legal,and 100% risk free since I have all vitial documents that would be requested by them and that would confer you the legal right to make this claim. I do sincerely sympertize the death of my client,but had thought it unprofitable for his funds to be summited to the federal government of this country and the finance company where it is lodged.My aim now is to retrive this funds,and for this I seek your assistance.Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 5years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of 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.
