I am Barrister Jeff Scott, a Solicitor and the Personal attorney to Mr. Hoel
Paul Edouard, a national of France, who died in a Plane crash on Monday 2nd
September 1998 GMT 14:22 UK while they were flying from New York to Geneva.
My client his wife and three children lost their lives on that plane
crash.Since then,i have made several enquiries to the embassy to locate any of
my clients extended relatives, this has proved unsuccessful. After several
unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the internet, so as
to locate any member of his family but to no avail,not until i went to
hisembassy in my Country where your contact information was given to me, Hence i
I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money that belonged to my
late client before they get confiscated or declared as unserviceable by the bank
where this huge deposit were lodged. Particularly, the Bank where the deceased
had an account valued at about $10.5 Million Dollars, has issued me a notice to
provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next ten
official working days.
Since i have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now
therefore, I have decided to seek your consent to present you as the next of kin
of the deceased, so that the proceeds of this account valued at $10.5 Million
Dollars, can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money 50% to me
and 45% to you, while 5% will be mapped out for any expenses during the process
or tax as your government may require. I have the certificate of deposit that
can be used to back up any claim we may make.All I require is your honest
cooperation to enable us see the 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 strictly via
this email (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to enable us discuss further.
Barrister Jeff Scott.
