Dear Sir/Madam, Good Day
Kindly accept my apology for sending unsolicited mail to you. I believe
you are a highly respected personality, considering the fact that I
sourced your profile from a human resource profile database on your
country. Though, I do not know to what extent you are familiar with
Well, I am Barrister Okoh Frank, a Solicitor. I am the Personal Attorney
to Mr. Steve A. who used to work with Agip Oil Company in Nigeria. On the
21st of April 2003, his wife and their three children were involved in a
car accident along Abuja Express Road.
Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident.
Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of
my client's relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these
several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the
Internet to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence, I
contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client
in a Bank. Particularly, the Finance House where the deceased deposited
the US$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars only) knows me
very well and has ask me to present some one to claim the fund left my
late client as they all know I am his attorney.
Consequently, this Bank issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to
claim the US$15 Million (Fifteen Million United States Dollars only) in
their custody within the next ten official working days. Since I have been
unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek your
consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased to claim the
fund as the Next of Kin to him so that the Bank will transfer the fund to
Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with
you for the disbursement of the fund and then you and I will share the
money in this order: 0% will be for me, 40% will be for you. I have all
the necessary legal documents that can back our claim we may make with the
All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal
through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.Best regards.
