Dear  Sir/Madam,

I am Barrister Hassan Ahmed an advocate and Solicitor.I am the Personal
Attorney to Mr. Fredrick  Johnson, a foreigner, who used to work with
European Development Company in Nigeria. On The 21st of April 2002, my
client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car
accident along Sagbama Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives.

Since then I have made several enquiries to his embassy to see if I can
locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has all the while proved unsuccessful. After 
these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives (i.e.) 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 it is confiscated by the Finance 
Firm where this money was deposited.

Particularly, the Finance firm where the deceased had the money deposited
(7.3 million dollars) has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin to
the deceased or have the money confiscated within the next ten official
working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating there latives
for over 2 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin
of the deceased since you are still a foreigner, so that the proceeds of
claim of this deposit valued at $7.3 million USD would be release to you and

then you and I can share the money, 60% to me and 35% to you, while 5%
should be for expenses or tax as your government may require. I have all
necessary legal information that can be used to back up any claim we may make.

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. Please get in touch with me by  email or call my tel number  stated above to enable us  
discuss further.

Best regards,
Mr. Hassan Ahmed ( Esq)
