Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful. after these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you. i have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and properties left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the commercial bank where this huge deposits were lodged. the commercial bank where the deceased had an account valued at 6 million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin, or have the account confiscated 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 since you have the same last Name. The proceeds of this account valued at 6 million dollars can be paid to you, as my Clients next of kin, and then we can share the amount on a mutual agreed percentage.
