BARRISTER JAJAL AMBERT & ASSOCIATES CHAMBERS (LEGAL PRACTITIONERS) #12 IKENNA JOHN STREET VICTORIA ISLAND, LAGOS NIGERIA. WEST AFRICA ATTN:Sir/Ma. I crave your indulgience for the unsolicited nature of this letter, but it was borne out of desperation and current development. Please bear with me. I am Barrister JAJA LAMBERT solicitor at law. I was the Personal attorney to Mr. Adams C Hue, who used to own an oil servicing company in Nigeria. Herein after shall be referred to as my client. On the 28 of December, 2005,my client, his wife and their three Children were involved in a plane crash in benin replublic,cotonou. All occupants of the aircraft unfortunately lost their lives. I know that my client had no living kin but i went ahead and made several inquiries through your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. I only did so to be double sure of this fact. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track a good fellow over the Internet, hence I contacted you. I am contacting you to assist me in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged, particularly the Bank in Nigeria where the deceased had an account valued at about 25.7 million Usd dollars, which i have all necessary documents. This account will be confiscated after four years if not claimed and We have just about one month. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 1 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since, i know that you are capable,to handle such transaction, so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$25.7 (Twenty Five Million Seven Hundred Thousand United state dollars) can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money, in the ratio of, 50% shall be for me and 45% for you, while 5% is earmarked for expenses that will be incurred during the process of Transfer of the fund. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. Note, that i am not contacting you,due to the fact that i did not see any kin/relative to my late, but am contacting you now because i did not see any relative/ my late client did not write down any will, before his death. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see 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 e-mail to enable us discuss further. Send your phone /Fax number for further discussion so that I can call you. I look forward to your urgent response.
