I am Mr.Peter Wallace (Esq.), a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Mr.Rober Hunter a National of your country who works with a construction Company in Nigeria and he is known and referred to as my Client. On the 21st of August 2002, my client, his wife and their four children were involved in a car accident along Sagbama express road. Unfortunately all the entire family lost their lives in the tragedy. Since then, I have made several enquires to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but all my efforts proved unsuccessful.

After these unsuccessful attempts failed, I decided to track his last name in the Internet to locate any member of his family or his national hence I contacted you.

Now my contacts to you is to assist me in repatriating the money in his bank account here before the account will be confiscated or declared unserviceable by the finance & security company where he deposit this money valued (Eight Million Three Hundred and Twenty Thousand Six Hundred And Forty Three United States Dollars Only). More importantly, the finance and security company where the deceased client deposited these huge sums of money has served me a write of notice to provide the NEXT OF KIN of my client or the account will be confiscated.

Since I have tried and failed on sever occasions in locating his relatives I am now seeking for your consent to present you as the next of kin the deceased since you have the same last name with him, so that the money in his account will be paid to you while I will come over to your country for the sharing. I will take 40% while you will take 40%.and 20% will be donated to the less privileged and charity organization.

I have all the necessary legal documents that can be use to backup any claim we may want. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Finally, if this business interest you, please get in touch with me immediately .Awaits your urgent reply.
