Good day sir,
I am Barrister; Adjei Lartey Kwaku. I am currently the Director; Deposit Protection Fund department, and was born on April 11th, 1960. I am a lawyer by profession. I hold L.L.B degree from
I worked as a legal officer in the Legal Division up to December 1993 when I was posted to the Deposit Protection Fund department as Principal Legal Officer in charge of Legal and Liquidation Divisions. On August 2004, I was promoted to be Director, External Payment & Foreign Exchange Reserves Department.
My client, Mr. Abou Khalil, a Lebanese National, his wife and their only son died in a plane crashed into the sea off the West African nation of
Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident, since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives and this has also proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet, to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you. I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the security company where my client lodged these funds, but unknown to the security company.
Consequently, the security company had issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the trunks transfer to unclaimed property office. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you share the same surname so that the proceeds of this boxes valued at 28.3 million dollars can be paid to you for both of us to share the money; 55% to me and 40% to you, while 5% should be necessary legal documents that can be used to backup the claim.
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.
I wait for the urgent confirmation of this receipt of message.
