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
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 :

Hoping to receive a positive response from you.
Best regards,
Barrister Tony Abbas.
