Mustapha has a fixed deposit account with our bank and no
other person knows about this account or any thing
concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my
investigation proved to me that his supposed next of kin
died along with him in the crash. 

Since then I have made several attempt to locate any of Mr.
Ahmed Yousuf Mustapha's extended relatives, this has  proved
unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I
decided to  contact you. I contacted you to assist in
repatriating the money left behind by Mr. Ahmed Yousuf
Mustapha  before they get confiscated or declared
unserviceable by the bank.

Consequently, Since I have been unsuccessful in locating his
relatives  for over 5 weeks now. I seek your consent to

expenses spent by both parties involve.I have all necessary
legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may

arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the
law. All documents of the transaction will be destroyed
