Good Day I know this Mail might have come as a surprise and Embarrassment to you, please take it with Good Faith and Blessing to you and you're Family. I am Barrister Hamaza Issa an advocate and Solicitor. I am the personal Attorney to Engr Edward Smith, a foreigner, who used to work with shell Development Company in Accra-Ghana. On The 21st of April 2004, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Ecowas Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to his embassy to see if i can locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has all the while proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives (i.e. same surname) over the Internet, to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposit were lodged. Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about $7.3 million dollars, has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin to the deceased or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days. Since i have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for years, now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you are still a foreigner, I agreed that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me. Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated, and if the 30% is not okay by you kindly let me know, I will like you to call me or indicate your number. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing 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 my email firstname.lastname@example.org to enable us discuss further.
