John Helm& Associates
Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust,
I am Barrister John Helm, I am the Personal Attorney to Engr.Tom Han. Who used to work with Agip Oil Company in Nigeria as a foreign expert.
On the 16th of june 2005, him and his wife including their three children were involved in a car accident along Lokoja Express way.
Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident. Since then I have made several enquiries to his Embassy to locate any of my clients relatives, which has also proved unsuccessful.
After 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.
Fortunately, the Finance House (BANK) where the deceased deposited the US$17 Million (seventeen Million United States Dollars only) knows me very well and has ask me to present some one to claim the fund left by my late client as they all know I am his attorney.
Consequently, the Bank has issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to claim the US$17 Million (seventeen 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 the 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 fund will be transferred to your account by the Bank.
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: 60% 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 theBank.
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.
Please get in touch with me through my alternative email address :(firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details.
Barrister John Helm Esq)
