Hello Dear,
 
I am Francis Tidwell, the Personal Attorney to one Engr. Mark Smith, a foreign national, who used 
to work with Shell Development, Company in Senegal. On the 21st of April 2004, my client, his wife 
and son were involved in an Auto Crash. Unfortunately they all lost their lives in the event. Since 
then I have made several Inquiries to their Embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, 
this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several Unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact 
you. I contacting you to assist me in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they 
get Confiscated or declared unserviceable by the  bank where this huge deposits were lodged. the 
deceased had an account valued at about (68 M)Six-eight million United British pounds only. 
Consequently, The bank issued me  a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account 
Confiscated   within the next ten official working days.
 
Since I have been Unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over one year now, I seek your  
consent to present you as the next of kin of the  deceased, regardless of your country, with your  
name/address, some vitals documents will be obtained on your favor which will back you as the next 
of kin the deceased. I shall offer you 40% of the total money for your assistance, 10% for any 
expenses that might incur during the transaction while 60% will be for me. I am also asking you to 
assist me to invest my own share of the money into a lucrative business in your country pending my 
arrival to your country. Be duly informed that I will resign from banking work to come over to your 
country with my family after the transfer of the fund into your account.
I have all necessary legal documents that are needed.  Since I am his personal lawyer, I have every 
right to come up with the next of kin. I believe we can do the transaction together once there is 
trust and Honesty. I have with me some of his account information to back Up the transfer of the 
fund to your account. Also I am to assure you that this transaction is legitimate and 100% risk 
free.
The procedure of establishing the next of  kin would be taken care by me since this has to be 
certified by his documents that is in my file as his personal Lawyer, do not worry about this. What 
I needed from you mostly is your truth and honesty and not someone who will sit on my own share 
upon receiving the fund in your account.
