FROM:- BARR. EKE LUKE ADDRESS:- PLOT 12 LUKMON AJAYI STREET VICTORIA ISLAND, LAGOS - NIGERIA Dear Friend, I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail might cause you,as we have not met before. I am Barrister Eke Luke,a solicitor at law, I am the personal attorney to Engineer Jason, a national of your Country, who used to work with Mobil oil Nigeria plc.Hereinafter shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2005, my client, his wife and their only child were involved in a car accident along Kano - Sokoto express Road while arriving from Easter Holiday to Warri Delta State. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives, since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives but this has been unsuccessful. I came across your name and contact, while I was searching for his relations via the internet, since my search did not yield the desired result, I had to contact you for this project. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank where these funds were deposited. The Bank where the deceased has an account valued US$10.3 Million Dollars, last year issued me a 12 months notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the fund/consignment confiscated, and this ultimatum expires by next month. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years now, I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased since you have the same last name so that the proceed of this deposit valued at US$10.3 Million Dollars can be released to you and then you and I can share the money, 60% for me 40% for you, and the remaining 10% will be for expenses that may be incurred during the course of this transaction. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this business through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please, note that this business is risk free and my only worry is the safety of this money once it gets into your account. I believe that it is (GOD) who joined us together in view of this transaction, and I also pray that (GOD) gives us the spirit of being honest to ourselves for the success of this transaction. I wait for your urgent response. Sincerely yours, BARR.EKE LUKE
