Dear Sir, I am Barrister Frank John,A legal Solicitor and I was the Personal Attorney and legal adviser to Mr.Jude Mark,a national of your country, who used to work with Aminex Oil and Gas Company Nigeria. On the 7th of April 2002, my client, his Brother and two of his Business partner,were involved in a car accident along Fariston Road Nigeria. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet, to locate any member of his family but of no avail,hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before the get impounded by the Bank where my client deposited this money. Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had deposited this money valued at about Thirten million Three hundred thousand united state dollar's(Us$.13.3 million)has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the money,impounded/confiscated. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives,I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you are from the same country with him. I will require your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through within a short period of time. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Contact me via my private email:(}to enable us discuss further.
Best Regard.
