I am Hendrich Benson Esq a solicitor and advocate. I am the Personal Attorney to Mr.BERNIE ADAMS,who lived in Togo for 8 years,and who was until his demise my client based on engagement entered into with my chambers in 1998. Late BERNIE ADAMS who is hereafter referred to as my client passed away on April 2002, in a fatal car accident.

All occupants of the vehicle including his immediate family unfortunately lost their lives. I contact you to secure your assistance in claiming his estate which includes sums of money left behind by him to forestall confiscation and possible declaration of his account as non-serviceable by the bank in which this money were deposited.UNITED BANK FOR AFRICA where my late client had an account for a value of 8.3 million dollars has issued me with notice to provide the Next of kin,or have the funds confiscated and declared abandoned.

I seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin of the deceased so that the lodgments of this account valued at 8.3 million dollars can be transferred to you by legitimate inheritance provisions as my client's Next of Kin. This sum of money can thereafter be mutually disbursed by an agreed percentage All legal documents to back up your claim as the deceased Next of Kin,will be available by my chambers as witness to your status as bonafide inheritor.

I therefore solicit your honest cooperation to enable us see this enterprise to finality. I reassure you 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,to enable us discuss more  elaborately
