Equity and Justice Office, plot 234 GRA Apapa
My name is barrister MARTINS WOOD (Esq), I got your contact
information from a reputable business/professional directory of your
country which gives me assurance of your legibility as a person while
trying to get a good and capable business for both business and
investment purposes. like I said, I am Barrister MARTINS WOOD. (Esq.)
I was the Personal Attorney to late Mr. Morris Thompson an American
who was a businessman in my country Nigeria but unfortunately he died
in an air crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January
31st 2007,including his wife and only daughter.
Before the crash, Mr. Morris Thompson made a fixed deposit value of
$20,000,000.00USD (TWENTY MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS) with the old
STANDARD TRUST BANK OF NIGERIA Upon maturity several notice was sent
to him, but there where no response.
After a months or two found out that Mr. Morris Thompson and his
family died in the plane crash that happened.
Further investigation being his personal attorney, proved that Mr.
Morris Thompson's one and only next of kin was his daughter who died
with him in the crash. I have made several contacts for any of his
relative or family member but there is no response coming forth
What borders me most is that according to the laws of my country at
the expiration of 8 years the funds will revert to federal government
treasury account (FEDERAL REPUBLIC NIGERIA GOVERNMENT ACCOUNT) if
nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, I needed a
foreigner to assist me in getting this fund out from the government
account because due to bad leaders we have in Africa, this fund will
not be utilized but will be diverted into personal account of famous
and top politicians in the country rather than using it for proper
investment that will promote growth and development in the country or
rather for charity work. So please I will like you as a foreigner to
stand as the next of kin to Mr. to my late client Mr. Morris Thompson
so that you will be able to receive these funds for both of us. WHAT
IS TO BE DONE?
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall
come out successfully. As a barrister, I will prepare the necessary documents
that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Morris Thompson and
the most important thing needed is truth and truth for us to have it
done.. PLEASE WHAT IS TO PROVIDE ME WITH YOUR FULL INFORMATION SUCH
AS STATED BELOW, SO THAT I WILL PREPARE THE NEEDED LEGAL DOCUMENTS
 OCCUPATION STATUS:
Also be informed that thisa Transaction will take us just 5-10 working days only
to accomplish beginning from when I receive the above information and
you have been made the next of kin, I will file an application to the
bank on your behalf as soon as I secure the necessary approval and
letter of probate in your favor for the movement of the funds to an
account that will be provided by you. This process is 100% risk free
as I have set out all the modalities to see that a legal and
