My  Dear ,
Certainly I know that this message will come as a surprise to you, due to the fact that we do not know each other before neither have we got any communication before. 
How ever I've I will like you to read carfuly and maitaily with an absolute confidenciality.   I came across your contact in my search for a reputable and reliable person to help me claim the fund in question.

I am Barrister  Philip Odum , a Solicitor at law,  and the personal Attorney
to  Mr, R.   Hush,   here-in after shall be referred to as my client. he was a foreign business merchant and on Contract of Crude Oil refining with Shell Development of Republic of Togo,  and was negotiating to set up a Crude Oil Refining Company in Republic of Benin a very Close neighboring Country to my Country Togo,
but unfortunately on the 25th December 2003, My client and his Wife died on a terrible Plane Crash in Benin Air-port,    Since then I have made several inquiries to locate his family relatives through the Internet but all efforts failed,
The reason for my inquiries to locate his people was because he had a Deposited whats  US$ Eleven Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Of American Dollars (US$ 11.500.000 ) in one Security Company here in Lome Our Country Capital City. 
This fund was Deposited in a Security Company for safety keeping because he kept it aside for a project of setting up the Crude Oil Refining Company before his on-expected death,   The money was deposited in two Metallic Iron boxes And was registered as unrefined gem-stone and Gold dust for absolute security reason,  The Security Company officials do not know the exact content of those two boxes Neither about his death up-till now.
And now the Security Company has issued me a warning notice information that the expiring date of the Agreement of the Deposit is approaching,  and the security keeping service charges / the insurance of the Deposit has been left unserviceable for a long time now,  Since they could not find the depositor even with the residential address registered in the Deposit Certificate, hence they Contact me as his Personal Attorney and I signed as his witness on the day the Deposit was made. 
And in-accordance with the Allied Matters for Banking and Security keeping in this Country,  If an Agreement of such Deposit expired with-out the owner coming to clear up the service charges and claim the Consignment,  The Security Company has an Authority to declare such Deposit unserviceable and Confiscate it for the use of the Security Companies.
And since all my efforts to locate my client's relations failed,  I' decided to take the advantage than to leave it to be Confiscate by the Security Company since I know that if the Fund is been confiscate it will not even go to the treasure of the Security Company rather the Selfish top officials of the Security Company will take advantage of it.
I contacted you after I having prayed and was quite convinced that you will not late me down neither betrayed my trust on you to shear the opportunity with me Since you have the same last name with my client we can easily succeed the transaction,  all I have to do as soon as you confirm your willingness to assist me in this deal is to prepare an application for claim / change of ownership Certificate with a detail information about the death of the Depositor and a ( WHEAL ) he made Confirming you his next of kin and beneficiary of his Deposit in that Security Company.
As soon as they receive the application / the Details from you all they have to do is to consult me as the Depositor's personal Attorney in the Country / His witness in the Security Company,  then as soon as i confirm your application and testify that i am quite away of your claim,  they will have no other option than to start processing the release of the fund to you immediately,  when the fund is released and transferred to you then i will come over to your Country immediately for our shearing ration.     I am willing to offer you 40% of the total sum, while 10% will be use to replace cost of expenses on the process of the transfer,  Then  50% will be mine,
Be rest assured that, this transaction is 100%  risk free and no extra responsibilities on your part, you will just have to follow up with my instructions and you should understand that the deal requires absolute confidentiality information throughout the duration of the transaction is it will not take more than 14 working days to conclude and discussing it with a third party might jeopardize the entire transaction.
I am looking forward to receiving your interesting response as this will greatly enrich both of us at the end.

Best Regards.
Barrister Philip Odum
