Dear friend,

I crave your indulgence as I contact you in such a surprising manner. I respectfully insist you read this mail carefully as I am optimistic it will open door for unimaginable financial reward for both of us.

I am barrister Ahmed Umar, a personal attorney to late Engr. Muhammad, a foreigner and an oil merchant/Contractor here in Nigeria. Herein shall be referred as my client, On the 21st of April 2002, my client, his wife and their two children were involved in a ghastly auto accident along Shagamu ExpressRoad, unfortunately, all occupants of the vehicle lost their lives.

Since then I have made several inquiries to the Embassy to see if I can locate any of my clients extended family/relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before it will get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank where my late client lodged this deposit.

The Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about $12.5million dollars, the management has issued me a notice as the personal attorney to the deceased to provide the next of kin or they will have the account confiscated within the next 21 banking days.

I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same surname so that the proceeds of this account valued at $12.5million dollars can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money in the following ratio:- - 50% will be given to you for your assistance - 50% will be for me.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see that this transaction succeeds. I will like you to forward all these information across to me if you accept the proposal to enable me make an application to the bank with your name as the next of kin to my late client.

1 Your Full names / home address.
2. Your private telephone/fax numbers.
3. Your Bank Account details.
4. Your Age and your Occupation.
5. Any form of your identification such as international passport or Driver's license

I guarantee that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.

Looking forward to your positive response.

Yours faithfully,
Barrister Ahmed Umar.
Attorney @Law
