FROM BARRISTER JONES OBI CHAMBERS, LEGAL PRACTITIONER AND PUBLIC NOTARY & HIGH COURT REPRESENTATIVE SUITE 202 OZIDO PLAZA, APAPA LAGOS -NIGERIA. Dear Friend, I hope this meets you in good health. My name is Barrister Jones Obi.legal practitioner and Attorney to late Mr. John Adam who died in the plane crash of Yak-40 jetliner on March 9, 2000. Youmay follow the Link below to read about the Plane Crash my client lost hislife: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/world/europe/672849stm My late client was an influential wealthy businessman, a Contractor in my Country and a Russian big time Oil dealer and the Principal owner of Oil Alliance Company and he left behind a deposit of Twelve Million, TwoHundred Thousand United States Dollar ($12,200,000.00USD) in his domiciliarybank account in a commercial bank here in Nigeria Which is one of the mainreasons it has been very important to locate his next of kin. After the death of my client his bankers contacted me, as his Attorney to provide his next of kin who should inherit his fortune. The board of directors of his bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money or forfeit the money to thebank as an abandoned Estate. The bankers had planned to invoke a clause in the property Act, to confiscate the funds after the expiration of a period given to me. It was while i was searching for his family records on the internet that i came across your contact.I have searched through almost all the genealogy site that you can think of both in the Russia,USA and all the possibleplaces I thought my clients would have possibly had a family member. Despairing and at the point of desperation. I cameacross your name, while trying to locate documentation's regarding possible relatives of my client in his country of origin. Convincedthat you may be able to act in locus for my late client as his next of kin.I therefore, decided to contact you with these facts before me because of the status quo.By virtue of my brief and my closeness to the deceased,Iam very much aware of my client's financial standing and the bank accounthe operates here in my country. I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client and the sole beneficiary of his estate, so that you are be paid the funds left inhis bank account, hence I contacted you. I seek your consent to present youas the Next of Kin; the bank needs only the facts as presented legally. The rest is between you and I and with my guide we can have the money paid into your account, once this is done we shall both share the funds. 50%to me and 40% to you, while 10% should be for Taxes as your Government mayrequire, I shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up our claim. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangementthat will protect you from any Breach of law.
