CONFIRM AND GET BACK TO ME IMMEDIATELY, JOHN COLE & ASSOCIATES SOLICITORS AND ADVOCATE #13 COLLEGE ROAD, OGBA, IKEJA, LAGOS, NIGERIA. OUR REF:NOK/INH/NOK/07 YOUR REF:................................ Attn, Please, I am very much obliged and compelled to write this letter to you. Honestly, my purpose here is to establish a fact of relationship as next of kin/estate beneficiary of my late client, Mr. Edward Genereaux, a foreign national who worked as a petrochemical consultant to the federal government and other oil companies and agencies. He is known and reffered to here, as my client. On the 21st of August 2005, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a boat mishap in the creeks of Escravos, an island town in the oil rich Niger Delta region, where he was on a petroleum exploration/supervision contract for the NNPC. Unfortunately all the entire family lost their lives in the tragedy. Since then, I have made several enquires to locate any of my clients' extended relatives but all my efforts proved unsuccesful. After these unsuccessful attempts failed, I decided to contact you. Now my contact to you is to assist me in REPATRIATING THE MONEY IN HIS BANK ACCOUNT HERE before the boat mishap, to avoid the money being confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank. He left a closing balance of US$14.3m. More importantly, the bank (Guaranty Trust Bank of Nigeria Plc.) has served me a writ of notice to provide the NEXT OF KIN of my client, or the money will be coverted to be the bank's property after the expiration of their set deadline. Since I have tried and failed on several occassions in locating his relatives, I am now seeking your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceassed, so that the money in his account will be paid to you, while I will come over to your country for the sharing. I have proposed take 60% while you will take 35%, and 5% will be used to pay back all expenses we will incur. I have all the necessary legal documents that can be use to back up the claim we will make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me immediately for details of what is to be done.
