Abbas Chambers, plot 27 surulere Lagos, Nigeria. Tel : 234-806-686-4818 Email : email@example.com Dear Friend, Compliments of the day, I hope that this letter will not constitute a sort of embarrasement to you. Please bear with me let me introduce myself. I am Barrister Tony Abbas, a private attorney to the deceased as mentioned herein.Eng Alex, a National of your country, who owned a metal producing factory (Metalco Enterprise) in Nigeria and a personal friend died and left behind his deposit in a finance house (GLOBAL SECURITIES & FINANCE COMPANY) valued at $14.5Millon (Fourteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only). My relationship with Eng.Alex started in 1999 when I was working with the security company as a Legal Adviser, Marina branch. We met in my social club's annual end of the year party and I introduced him to the said security company where he deposit most of his treasures some few weeks later,making me the Legal officer to the account which he operated until his unfortunate demise.On the 31st of March 2001, Eng.Alex, his wife and their two children were involved in a car accident. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. After the incident i contacted Eng.Alex sister (Ms Martha Stevens) which was his beneficiary/next of kin but unfortunately before she could claim his estate she too died in September 11, 2001 terrorist attack at the world trade center in the United State Of America. See http://edition.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2001/memorial/lists/by-name/page95.html Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of Eng.Alex extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family or anyone related to him hence I contacted you . Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 6 years 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$14.500,000 (Fourteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money.70% to me and 30% to you.The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that My client was a foreigner and a Nigerian cannot stand as a next of kin to a foreigner. I am ready to re-negotiate the mode of sharing with you.Thereafter I will visit your country for the disbursement/investing of my share according to the percentages we agreed upon.If you find this proposal suitable for you do get back to me with the following informations Your full Name and Contact Address,Your private telephone Number Your Age Your Occupation and Position. All I require is your honest cooperation 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 for the sake of confidentiality send your reply to my private email : firstname.lastname@example.org Hoping to receive a positive response from you. Best regards, Barrister Tony Abbas.
