54 Albert
Embankments, London SE1 7SR, United
Kingdom. Attn:Dearest
One I am Barrister Robert Basil. I have a client Mr.Mark, a
foreigner who used to work with Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
(NNPC). I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of
this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you
come by as a result of this mail. On the 2nd August 2003, my client,
his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along
Manchester Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost
their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to
locate any of my client's 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 me in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they
got confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance House where
these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Finance House where
the deceased had an account valued at about US$12.4M has 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 unsuccessful
in locating the relatives for many months now, I seek your consent to
present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of
this account valued at US$12.4M can be paid to you and then you and I
can share the money. 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 transaction through. I guarantee that
this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from any breach of the law. I am willing to offer you 30% of the
total sum as compensation for your effort/input after you successfully
secure the funds in your nominated account overseas and map out 10% for
any expenses that may arise. Please, get in touch with me through
this particular, immediately
you acknowledge the good receipt of this message. Anticipating your
prompt response. ROBERT BASIL ESQ (Attorney at law)
