From: Barrister Chris Nelson. 25,Isaac John Avenue, Apapa. Lagos - Nigeria. Phone:234-8037-210614. Dear Sir, I am Barrister Chris Nelson,the Personal Attorney to Engr.Harel Marcos ,a national of your country ,who was an oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC). On the 26th of December 2004, my client,his wife and their only son were involved in a fatal motor car accident along Abeokuta expressway Lagos ,unfortunately they all lost their lives in the event of the accident, since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of myclient's extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful, after theseseveral 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 contacted you to assist in repartrating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about $15 million U.S dollars(Fifteen million us dollars). Conseqently, the bank issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days, since I have been unsuccesfull 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 so that the proceeds of this account valued at $15 million U.S dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money, 50% to me and 45% to you,while 5% should be for expensesor tax as your government may require. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation 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 by email( firstname.lastname@example.org) or call to enable us discuss further. Yours Faithfully. Barrister Chris Nelson. (Legal Consultant).
