Attention: Please reply/call me.
I am Mr. Ishmael Doko(Esq, from Abidjan Cote Dí Ivoire, solicitor and
personal lawyer to late Mr. Albert, a client of mine, who has a servicing
firm affiliated with the Electric Authority here in Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire.
He was awarded a contract worth (US$18,600,000.00). Immediately this
contract was signed, an initial amount of (US$7.600,000.00) was paid to
him as mobilization fee to kick off the contract. He duly completed this
contract pending when his remaining balance of (US$11,000,000.00) will
be paid to him. On the 21st April 2004, my client, his wife and their three
children were involved in a ghastly boat capsize at Bassam. Unfortunately,
all the occupants in the boat lost their lives.
Not too long after his untimely death, his outstanding balance of
US$11,000,000.00 was approved and deposited in a Bank here. Right now
the funds are still floating unclaimed in the suspense account of the
offshore correspondence payment centre here.
I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to
present you as the next of kin of my deceased client, so that you can be
paid the remaining balance of his contract funds left in the Bank, hence I
contacted you. I am offering you this opportunity by contacting you to
assist in repatriating the fund and property left behind by my client before
they get confiscated or unserviceable by the Bank where this huge deposit
were lodged. The National Electric Authority issued me a notice as the
Attorney to the deceased to provide the Next of Kin or have the Account
confiscated in a shot period of time since I have been unsuccessful in
locating the relatives for over a year that I have been searching.
I seek your concept to present you as the Next of Kin or family member to
the deceased since you are at an advantage, coming from the same
country so that the proceeds of this remaining balance of his contract
funds valued at (US$11,000,000.00) can be paid to you. We shall both
share the funds, we will agree on the sharing ratio as we proceed, A
certain amount will be for any incurred expenses and for donation to
I have all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up any
claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us
see this project through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law after
the transfer is done, then you and l can share the fund.Please call with
this number: +225-04857499 or 011225-04857499 for further details.
Best personal regards,
Mr. Ishmael Doko(Esq.
