Dear Sir/Madam, 


Humanely admit my regret for sending unwelcome mail to you. I believe you are an extremely 
respected personality, considering the fact that I spring your outline from a human resource 
profile catalog on your country. Though, I do not know to what extent you are familiar with events.


Well, I am Barrister Okoh smith, a Solicitor. I am the Personal Attorney to Mr. Steve A. who used 
to work with Agip Oil Company in Nigeria . On the 21st of April 2003, his wife and their three 
children were involved in a car accident along Abuja Express Road . 


Regrettably, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident and since then I have made 
several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client\\\'s relatives, this has also proved 


After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to 
locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence, I contacted you to assist in repatriating 
the money left behind by my client in a Bank. Particularly, the Finance House where the deceased 
deposited the US$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars only) knows me very well and has 
ask me to present some one to claim the fund left my late client as they all know I am his attorney.


Accordingly, this Bank issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to claim the US$15 Million 
(Fifteen Million United States Dollars only) in their custody within the next ten official working 
days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek your 
consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased to claim the fund as the Next of Kin to 
him so that the Bank will transfer the fund to your account.


Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement of 
the fund and then you and I will share the money in this order: 60% will be for me, 40% will be for 
you. I have all the necessary legal documents that can back our claim we may make with the Bank.


All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that 
this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the 


Best regards.
