I am really very sorry to barge into your privacy in this form.
However i seek your pardon for that, this is because i have know other
alternative than this.

However, I am Barrister Leo Chung from Japan, the Personal
Attorney to one deceased immigrant from your country, who based in
London, Also referred to as my client. On the 12th of July 2003, my
client, his wife and their only Child died in the train bomb blast
along Edgware road UK. Some of his properties, which he put out for sale.
which I monitored the payment as his attorney, has been bought and paid for.
Now the money paid was deposited into his Local account here in London. 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 his bank
particularly, this is because all effort I made since three years ago to
get any of his relation who will stand as a next
of kin was not successful, however in my process of thinking of what to do
in other to make sure his account worth 10 Million Dollars does not get
confiscated or declared unserviceable by his bank, I decided to search
the internet, i then found that their is exact similarity between his
LAST NAME and your surname name, I then concluded to contact you
through email to stand as the next of KIN to my late client, though I
doubt if
you are related to him but for the similarities of names this proposal
can be carried out successfully with your kind assistance.

My late client has an account valued at 10 Million Dollars. Since I have
been unsuccessful
in locating the relatives for 3years now and the bank has
issued me a notice through a telegram message i received from them
yesterday evening informing me that they want to Audit their accounts by
the end
of this month, precisely 29th of November dew to recent development in their
banking policy and if I do not provide the next of kin before this date, they
will confiscated or declare unserviceable the money and property left by my
late client during the process of the Auditing. I now seek your consent to
present you as the next of kin to my late client, so that the proceeds of
account valued at 10 Million Dollars can be paid to you and then you and I
share the money. 50% to me and 40% for you and 10% for miscellaneous
expenses that might arise towards this transaction. I have all necessary
documents that can be used to back up the claim.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal
through. I guarantee that this deal will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will Protect you from any breach of the law. Trust me,
as his attorney, this is a Risk free business relationship.

If my humble request is granted, please send the following
To my Email:, and treat this as
a confidential matter.

Best Regards.
