On the 21st of April 2004 he and his family were involved in a car accident along Ibadan – Lagos Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my client's relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client/friend before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by AfriBank Plc branch where this huge deposits were lodged, the deceased had an account valued at about 15 Million Dollars with the bank, hence the bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated to the government account. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you are from the same country so that the proceeds of this account valued at 15 Million Dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 50% for me and 40% for you and 10% will be used for any expenses that this might cost in the process of this transaction. I have all necessary legal documents to back up this proposal and claim, this include the statement of account from the bank, the last WILL left behind by the deceased and his international passport copy and drivers license and my certificate of call to bar as a lawyer with my license to practice law for your verification. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. It is 100% risk-free. Please get in touch with me so that I will give you more details on how we are to carry out this transaction legally.
