From: abdul aheed . For your attention. The inspiration to contact you is simply divine providence, I am making this proposition because I have to seek the partnership of a resource person to help me realise this project. I am abdul aheed esq a solicitor and investment consultant based in Lagos, Nigeria. I was attending a business luncheon in Berlin,Germany and I got introduced to the renowned businessman and property mongul, Mr Andreas Schranner (of the blessed memory).He engaged my services as attorney and investment consultant and my primary assignment was to spearhead his investment forays in the Nigeria. Three months later, I invited him to Nigeria and under my professional guidance and based on my advice he made a fixed deposit of FOURTY FOUR MILLION, TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$44,200,000.00) with security company affiliated with Union Bank of Nigeria.This deposit was for 12months and upon maturity I made effort to contact my client, I could not reach him or any member of his family. I was forced to travel to germany and there I got the tragic news that on July 25TH, 2000, my client Mr. Andreas Schranner, his wife maria, their daughter eich and husband christian and their two children perished in the Air France concorde New York bound flight; please click here:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm I have made effort to locate any member of his family with strong biological links to my late client without success. The search to find a close relation is one that has consumed time and resources.The institution is asking me to either present a next of kin to late Andreas Schranner or forfiet the depsosit. My proposal to you now is to present you as next of kin to late Andreas Schranner and process the deposit and collect the deposits for our mutual benefit.My capacity as solicitor/investment consultant to my late client gives me the discretion to present the next of kin. I will give you 40% for your effort, 50% for me and 10% for Charity. It will amount to injustice if i do not take this decisive step to secure this deposit, and invest it . The late Schranner was also a friend in addition to our business relationship. I will wait for your reaction and response and then together we can jumpstart this project and nurture it to reality. Please reply to:email@example.com Your swift response is anticipated. Yours faithfully abdul aheed (SAN)
