Reply soonest. From: Barrister Williams Ibekwe. IBEKWE & ASSOCIATE CHAMBERS Hello, I crave your indulgence as I contact you in such a surprising manner and I want you to bear in mind that this is not a hoax mail But I respectfully insist you read this mail carefully as I am optimistic it will open door for good financial reward for both of us.PLEASE CONTACT ME ONLY THROUGH MY DIRECT EMAIL: email@example.com IMMEDIATELY YOU READ THIS MAIL. I am Barrister Williams Ibekwe, the personal attorney to late Engr. Steven Boomer, a foreigner and an oil merchant/Contractor here in Port-Harcourt, herein shall be referred as my client. On the 21st of October 2000, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a ghastly auto accident along Shagamu Express Road; unfortunately, all occupants of the vehicle lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to Embassies to locate any of my late client's extended family or Relatives and this has been unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you to assist me in repatriating the money left behind by my late client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by ACCESS BANK OF NIG. PLC. Where this huge amount US8.5million is lodged. The bank has issued me notice to provide the next of kin/Relative or have the account confiscated within the next 21 banking days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 5 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin/Relative of the deceased so that the funds can be transferred into your account and then you and I will share this fund accordingly. All I require is your honest co-operation and confidentiality to enable us see this deal through, I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. PLEASE CONTACT ME ONLY THROUGH MY DIRECT EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org IMMEDIATELY YOU READ THIS MAIL. Thanks and God Bless. Barrister Williams.
