FROM THE OFFICE OF
BARRISTER MORGAN ADE
#24 ADEOLA HOWELL STREET
VICTIRIA ISLANDl LAGOS NIGERIA.
I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail may cause you, as we have not met before. I am Morgan Ade, a solicitor at law, I am the personal attorney to Engineer Frank Reeves a national of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Nigeria, hereinafter referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2002, my client, his wife and their children were involved in a car accident along Kano - Sokoto express Road while arriving from Easter Holiday to Warri Delta State. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful.
I came across your name and contact, while I was searching for Frank 's relations. Since my search was unsuccessful, I decided to contact you for this project. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money and properties left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance House where these funds were deposited. Particularly, the finance house where the deceased deposited as family treasure, a consignment valued USD12 Million, last year issued me a 12 months notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the fund consignment confiscated, and this ultimatum expires by next month.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years now, I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin so that the proceed of this deposit valued at USD12 Million can be released to you and then you and I can share the money, 40% for me 40% for you, and the remaining 20% will be for expenses and tax. He made the money in one of the Oil deals he had with our Oil Ministers. I also have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this business through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Get in touch with me through my email address or the alternative email address: firstname.lastname@example.org so we can proceed.
