GET BACK TO ME
I am Barrister Felix Abua, a solicitor and attorney at law. I am the personal Attorney to Late Mr. john , a national of your country, who worked with an Oil Services and Exploration Company in Nigeria here.
My client Died In Car Accident On the May 2ND 2002 with his wife and their two children While returning from Port Hartcourt to Kano where they are residing. My Late client Deposited the sum of ($17,500.000.00)Intercontinental EQUTTY BANK PlC (NIGERIA) PLC.He had wanted to transfer this fund to his country as soon as he is on leave but his hope was cut down because he died before carrying out his wishes. As his personal Attorney,Since his death I have made several enquiries to locate any of my client's extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts to locate his Next Of Kin, I decided to surf the Internet Web, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before his fund get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the EQUTTY BANK where this fund was Deposited by him.Presently,the EQUTTY BANK NIGERIA PLC where he deposited this fund has issued me a notice to provide the Next Of Kin of my late client or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days.The following websites could be referenced:
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating
the relatives for over 3 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the Next Of Kin to my
late deceased client, so that the proceeding of this account valued at 17.5million dollars can be
paid to you and then you and me can share the money. SIXTY PERCENT to me and FOURTY PERCENT to
you.I will secure all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we make. All
I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through and to claim the
fund deposited by my late client rather than allowing the local bank to hold On to the fund
illegaly.I guarantee that this will be carried out under a legitimate arrangement that will
protect you from any legal indictment.Please if you are interested to assist me urgently send to
me your full name,your contact address ,your telephone numbers. .All this information will be
needed to certify the documents for the transfer in your name and a text of the application which
will be submitted to the Bank directly in your name as the Next Of Kin For the transfer of the
fund in your favour.
I got your email from Director of Shell Bp. I also have the Legal Documents you will use in claimming the funds.
