wife and his three children were involved in a car accident. All occupants of 
the vehicle lost their lives. Since then I have made several inquires from the 
embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proven

left behind by my client before the get confiscated or declared unserviceable 
by the bank where huge deposit were lodged, particularly First national bank 
of South Africa. Where the deceased had an account valued at about 
$28,500,000.00 (Twenty-Eight million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) has issue 
me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated though 
they are persons of the same national here in south Africa non of them is a 
direct relative with the deceased and had no idea of this deposit.Since I have 
been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over a period of time, I seek 
your consent to represent you as the next of kin to the deceased since the 
bank would not released the fund to local person here in south Africa, so the 
proceed f this account valued at US28,500,000.00 (Twenty-Eight Million, Five
