Subject: Good day.
I am Adams Johnson,an attorney.I am/was the personal attorney to Late Mr Lee., who was a national of your country.On the 27th of January 2002,my client, his wife and their only son died following the bomb blast that occurred in Nigeria on that date.
Since then I have been making several attempts to locate any of my client's relatives but all my efforts have been unsuccessful. As a result of this i decided to track his last name over the Internet hoping to locate any member of his family or someone who could fit in.This led to my contacting you.
I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind before they are confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Security Company here where he had a cash deposit of $11.7M.The Security Company has now issued me a final notice of intent to provide his next of kin or have the deposit confiscated and handed over to the government having exceeded the agreed period of deposit.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any one who is related to him all these while, i then decided to contact you to seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that both of us can retrieve the money from the Security Company and subsequently share it.
It may interest you to note that i have the necessary legal documents that will be used to backup the claim.
I expect you may wonder how he made all this money.Well,he was dealing in Diamonds which he was sourcing from Sierra Leone and neighbouring Liberia during the period both countries were at war.
I can explain more of the details if you want me to.
Please,you will have to get back to me as soon as possible if you might be interested so that we can discuss further.If you can give me a telephone number to reach you,it will be faster.
