Greeting, I am Cindy Williams , A financial advisor. An indigene of your country used to work as a contractor with Shell electro-chemical and Development Company .After shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of Nov 2001, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but this has 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 repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where his huge deposits were lodged, firm where the deceased had an account valued at about 20.5 million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin or have the account confiscated after six years if not claimed. So we have just one year left. If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. Mark died in state. In another year, if a next of kin is not located to inherit the fund, the Estate will revert back to the Bank's accounting system as "unclaimed" Late Mark died with no known or identifiable family member. This leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit. 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. Please get in touch with me by e-mails so we can discuss further.You may also, send your phone number so that I can call you. I look forward to your urgent Best Regards, Cindy Williams.
