I know you would be very surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to you before. I must first apologize for sending you this unsolicited message and I want you to know that the essence of this message is strictly confidential and for mutual benefits between you and I and nothing more.
My name is BARRISTER Barnabe G.Gbago, the private attorney to Late Engr.Michael Young, a national of your country and a former Engineering Contractor, who used to work with the (SODAMEF SARL) an Oil & Gas servicing and distribution company base in Benin Republic West Africa, Here in after shall be referred to as my client.
On December 25, 2003., my client and his entire family were involved in a chartered Boeing 727 jet bound for Beirut, Lebanon, that crashed after hitting a building few minutes after taking-off, killing at least 140 people including my client and his entire family as they where heading to Beirut for Holidays. Since that incidence, I have made several inquiries through your embassy and consulate to see if I could trace any member of my clients extended relative(s) but all to no avail.
After these several unsuccessful attempts and fruitless effort,I decided to track his last name over the Internet to locate any member of his extended relatives hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating these large sum of money,is about $16.5 Million USD (Sixteen million five hundred thousand United state Dollars), which was left behind by my late client before his death in 2003. These huge amounts were particularly lodged with the "BANQUE ATLANTIQUE DU BENIN” where the deceased lodged the money before his demise.
The Bank has issued me an ultimatum to present the next of kin/relative of the deceased or has the account confiscated and closed as unserviceable account by the Bank here. Since I have made several unsuccessful attempts in locating the deceased relatives for over 5 years now, I seek your honest consent to present you as the Heir apparent to the deceased (Next-of-Kin) since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account valued $16.5 Million United States Dollars would be paid into your account, then you and I can Share the money 50% to me and 50% to you. I will use my position as an attorney and legal practitioner to render all necessary legal assistance and documentations that can be used to back up this claim.
I must give you absolute guarantee that this transaction would be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law, and I must also assure you that all modalities for the successful transaction have been set in place, so everything will be perfectly worked out without hitch.
