With Due Respect.

Compliment of the Day, Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. I am Mr. Evans Egodi, a Manager at the UNION BANK NIGERIA PLC, Apapa Branch Lagos Nigeria, I am Bank Manager to one of our Foreign client who is now deceased, (he had no wife and children). He was an oil Merchant /Contractor with the Federal Government of Nigeria, But before the death of our client he deposited the sum of ($10.2 Million USD) with our Bank, Accidentally he death on the 27th of January 2002, our client was involved in ikeja bomb blast. Which claimed the lives of many people in that area.
Please view these website Below

Since we heard of his death, we have been expecting any of his relatives to come over and put claims for his abandoned money as the (Beneficiary) Next of Kin, Unfortunately, neither their family member nor distant relatives has ever appeared to claim the fund. After several investigations, As the Bank manager to the deceased, the Board of Directors and the Management of Union Bank has issued me a note and authorized me to provide the (Beneficiary) next of kin to the deceased, or otherwise the fund will get CONFISCATED by the Bank. as indicated in our banking guidelines and Board of Directors and the Management of the Union Bank will properly share the Fund among themselves.

Meanwhile, since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of my late client extended relatives but this have proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I now decided to trace any of his relatives over the Internet to know if I could be able to locate any of his (Beneficiary) relatives. As I was searching through my countries chamber of commerce, in my searching I found out that you bear the same Surname with my late client.
After visiting the website i now decided to contact you hence the objective of this transaction is for a Next of Kin whom I will front as the (Beneficiary) Next of Kin, to claim his deposit ($10.2 Million USD) with our Bank. Hence you have the same Surname with my late client and the transaction will be smooth once you take my directives, so that the proceeds of this account valued at ($10.2 Million USD) can be paid into your Account. And then you and I can share the money 55% to me and 40% to you. While 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of the transaction. 
So my Dear Friend i will advice you go ahead and assist me so that this money can be paid in to your Account, I really need you to work with me and get this money out before this money will get CONFISCATED  by the Bank. If you accept to work with me I will appreciate it very much and i will give you more details about this business and I will also explain to you how we should start the claim. Just all I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through.
Please kindly keep the confidential of what you red within you for security reasons.
Thank very much for your understanding. 

With Best Regards,
Mr. Evans Egodi.
