Subject: Dear Friend,
I do recognize the surprise this urgent but confidential letter brings to
you,especially as it came from a stranger.I am Barrister TONY OBI ,(SAN) a
solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to late Engr.Steve Moore a
national of Isle of Man in UK, who was a contractor with Shell development
company in Nigeria. On the 21st of April 1996,my client, his wife and
their only daughter were involved in a car accident along sagamu express
All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. And since
then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended
relatives this has also proved unsuccessful.After these several
unsuccessful attempts, I decided to search over the Internet,to locate any
member of his family hence contacted you.As you may bear with me,a next of
kin maybe the parents,sister, brother,close relative,associate, friend or
even a well-wisher.So, whether you are related to him or not is never a
barrier to realizing the transaction.
I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the money left behind by my
client before they get confisicated or declared unserviceable by the bank
where this huge deposits were lodged.The Bank where the deceased had an
account valued at about $27 million US dollars has issued me a notice to
provide the next of kin or have the account confisicated within the next
21 official working days.
since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives now i seek your
consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the
proceeds of this account valued at $27 million US dollars(Twenty seven
million united state dollars) can be paid to you and then you and i can
share the money. I have all necessary details that can be used to back up
All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal
through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you and i from any breach of the law. Please
get in touch with me by my email (email@example.com ) and send to me
your telephone number to enable us discuss further about this transaction.
