Bruno Alex Esq Peace & Peace Chambers Rue 225 Tokoin Coast-line B.P 23 ,Lome-Togo Dear Sir,Compliment of the day. Excuse my intrusion into your private life without your prior permission. I hope my mail will not cause you much embarrassment as I write to you in good faith.
I am Mr Bruno Alex Esq of Peace and Peace chambers ,an Attorney at law, and the Personal lawyer to Engineer M. C. RASLAN,a foreigner who was instrumental to the construction of the International Cement Company, Lome Togo hereinafter referred to as my client.
On the 21st of April 2003,my client,his wife and their two children were involved in a motoring accident along Kara-Sokode expressway while arriving from a Holiday to Lome.All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives.
Since then, I have made several inquiries to their embassy to locate any of their extended relatives and this has also proved unsuccessful. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at US$11.525m,(Eleven million and five hundred and twenty-five thousand United States Dollars),left behind by him before it gets confiscated 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 confiscated within the next twenty one official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek your consent to present as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.
I will not fail to assure you that all the original documents that will be needed in a transaction of this nature ascertaining you as the bonafide next of kin to my Late client will duly and legally be obtained in your name and favour.
On smooth conclusion of this transaction, both of us will be entitled to equal shares (45%) of the total sum, while 10% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone bills. All I require from you is your honest co-operation 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.
I expect your urgent response indicating your full interest in this great business transaction to our both mutual trust.
Your telephone and fax number will be needed for our easy communication. Sincerely, Bruno Alex. Esq. _________________________________________________________________Retrouvez tout en un clin d'oeil avec la barre d'outil MSN Search ! http://desktop.msn.fr/
