Dear Friend, 
I am Barrister Anthony Nwankwo, a solicitor at law.
I am the personal attorney to late Engr Patrick, who worked with a Multi-National Oil Firm in 
Nigeria, unfortunately lost 

his life in a car accident along sagbama express road, on 21st April 2004. Since the death of 
Patrick, I as his personal 

attorney, have made several enquiries to locate his only surviving relation, without any success.  
I came across your name 

and contact on the course of my personal  searching for Patrick's relations, so I decided to 
contact you for this project. 

I am contacting you to assist in repatriating and securing the wealth left behind in a fixed 
deposit account by Patrick, 

before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by Bank where my client operates an account 
worth $USD6.2 Million 

Dollars. The board of Bank  has issued me a notice that after 2 months from now and no next of kin 
shown up for  the 

claiming of the said funds, the funds will be confiscated and declared unserviceable.
Since I and my team have been unsuccessful in locating Patrick's  relatives for sometime now,it on 
this note that I seek 

your consent to present  you as the Next of Kin of the deceased since you are bearing the same last 
name with him, so that 

the proceed of this deposit valued at $USD6.2 Million Dollars can be  released to you for our 
disbursments.All requires is 

your honest cooperation to enable us see this business successful. I  guarantee that this will be 
executed under a 

legitimate arrangement which will protect you from any breach of the law. Patrick was a very good 
man and it is  not wise 

for me to allow his hard earned wealth to be stolen by the greedy directors of the Bank .Further 
details awaits your 

response by email.Upon your response, furnish me with: 
Your full name and address 
Your telephone and fax numbers

As soon as I receive all these information from you I will email you with a draft that you will 
fill and send to  the bank 

Directors to enabe them know that I have locate the relation to my late client since they asked 
that I should provide the 

next of kin for them to release the inheritance fund. Let me hear from you once you acknowledge my 
Yours faithfully,
Barrister Anthony Nwankwo(Esq).
