Dear Friend,
How are you today? And how are your family? Hope you are all doing
 fine?, if so glory be to God.
I am Barrister John Smith, an attorney at law based here in Lagos
 Nigeria, A deceased client of mine, by name MR ANDREW and who here in
 shall be referred to as my client, died as the result of a
 heart-related illness but before his death ,his entire family was
 involved in the
 last bomb explosion in Ikeja Lagos part of Nigeria, so this means that
 after the death of his children and wife when he returned from a
 business trip and was told about the bomb incident, he went straight
 sickness and developed a heart related illness until he finally died
 at the
 Saint Nicolas Hospital here in Lagos Nigeria .
I am contacting you to assist in transferring the money left behind by
 my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the
 SECURITY COMPANY where this deposit valued at $10,000,000.00 million
 dollars was lodged. This SECURITY COMPANY has issued me a notice to
 the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated.
I have tried all my possible best to locate any of my late client
 extended family or relation in your country through your embassy here
 Nigeria, but all my efforts was abortive since the embassy was not
 able to
 provide valuable information?s to this, again i received another
 letter from the security company which states that i should present to
 the next of kin of my late client , so that they can pay the $10,000,
 000.00 to him as the beneficiary of the funds or the money will be
 converted into their company treasury and will be regarded as
 bills ,which after then the funds can not be paid to any body and they
 make this clear to me in the letter .
The reason i am contacting you is that i want us to do this business
 together , i will guarantee your security since i am also a lawyer and
 want to also assure you that this transaction will not take more than
 working days and so it is possible for you to use your own share to
 finance your present business over there in your country .
My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the
 next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, since MY CLIENT DIED
 WITHOUT ANY NEXT OF KIN OR CHILDREN, so that the proceeds of this
 can be paid to you AS THE NEXT OF KIN . Then we can share the amount
 on a
 mutually agreed-upon percentage. 50% TO YOU AND 50% TO ME AS PARTNERS.
All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin
 will be provided. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable
 transfer of the funds into your account over there in your country,
 understand that the late man is a foreigner and since you are also a
 foreigner, the security company will transfer to you the funds as the
 of kin ,and then i will meet with you in your country to take my share
 of 50% ,i will prepare the legal backups , and understand that
 everything will be done legally and as soon as the whole funds are
 to your account in your country, I will fly in to meet with you for
 sharing which i have indicated to you already in this proposal that we
 will share the money 50% to you and 50% to me.
This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
 you from any breach of the law of my country or your country and
 understand that this transaction will not take your time ,will be
 complete in
 estimated time of 7 working days upon your acceptance and co-operation
 with this proposal.
My late client was not a Nigerian and in this a Nigerian can not stand
 as his next of kin ,this is the reason i am contacting you since you
 are also not a Nigerian it will be acceptable by the security company
 pay to your account the funds as beneficiary and next of kin to my
 client .

If this business proposition offends your moral values, do accept my
apology, but i must indicate that this transaction has nothing to do
 with crime or risk , it is completely risk free , do not be afraid .
Please contact me at once to indicate your interest.
