My Dear hi,There is unclaimed funds on your name... 
My Dear , 
I am Barrister Chris Okeke an advocate and Solicitor.I am the Personal Attorney to Mr. Lewis , a 
foreigner,who used to work with an oil Company as an Engineer in Nigeria.On The 21st of April 2003, 
my client,his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Festac Express 
Road.All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several 
enquiries to his embassy to see if i can locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has all 
the while proved unsuccessful.After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his 
relatives (i.e.same surname) over the Internet,to locate any member of his family but of no avail, 
hence I contacted you. 
I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client before it is 
confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposit were lodged. 
Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about us$10 million dollars has 
issued me a notice to provide the next of kin to the deceased or have the account confiscated 
within the next twenty one official working days.Since i have been unsuccessful in locating the 
relatives for over sometime now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the 
deceased since you are still a foreigner,so that the proceeds of this accounvalued at $10 million 
USD can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money, 45% for me and 45% for you,while 
10% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require. I have all necessary legal 
documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through.I guarantee that this 
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. 
1)Your full name and contact address 2)Your telephone and fax number for communication purpose 
3)Your Ocupation, Age and Position
Best regards, 

Barrister Chris Okeke,
