I am Barrister. Kesington Abiodun, a legal practitioner and Attorney to
late Dr. Aaron Cohen Birch a Nationality of your country, who is the owner
of Stragem construction Company in Nigeria. 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.

Waiting to hear from you soon
Best regards,

Barrister: Abiodun Kesington
