I am Barrister Olabode Victor, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Mr.David Young,national of your country,possibly could be your brother,who used to work with shell Development Company in Nigeria. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 6th of 2002 May,my client, his wife and their two Children were involved in a plane crash in a remote village called Kuru near Jos in Plateau State.
All occupants of the plane unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here in lagos to locate any of my clients extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.
I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated, frozen or declared unserviceable by the bank where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Eco Bank International where the deceased had an account valued at about Seventeen Million,Five hundred thousand United States Dollars US$17.500,000:00). The management has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account frozen within the next ten official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 5years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$17.500,000.00 can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 55% to me and 40% to you and 5% for expenses I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up this claim.
And this I must do to make sure that this fund is not wasted or end upin the wrong hands. 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 from any breach of the law.
Looking forward to your urgent anticipation to this offer.
