Dear Sir/Madam,
I am Mr. clement Ego, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to late Mr. Khan, who used to work with a Multinational Company.
On the 21st of April 2002, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives.
Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at US$3.5million left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the holding bank where this huge amount were deposited.
The said BANK has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next fourteen official working days. For the fact that I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.
Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer. I have all necessary information and legal rights needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation 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. Please get in touch with me through this email address:
Best regards,
clement Ego.
