I am Eng. Richard David, a seismic. Engineer with Shell Petroleum Development
Company (SPDC). My senior boss/ colleague Late Engineer Evans Anthony, who
worked with shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) in Nigeria as the head
of drilling operations herein after, shall be referred to as the late.
On Nov14, 2005 my boss, his wife, and their three children were involved in
fatal air crash in Lisa village near Otta, in Ogun state South West region of
Nigeria . All persons on board unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I
have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients
extended Relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his last name
over the Internet, to locate any member of his family Hence, I have contacted
you. I contacted you to assist us in repatriating the money and property he
left behind before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank
where this huge deposit were lodged.
Particularly, the ECO BANK NIGERIA PLC, where the deceased had an account
Valued at about ($10.5 million u s dollars) has issued me a notice to provide
the next of kin else they have the account confiscated within the next ten
official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 months
now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so
that this account valued at ($10.5million u s dollars) can be paid to you and
then you and me could share the money.60% to me and 40% to you An attorney will
be contracted to help notarize all the necessary legal documents that can be
used to back up any claim we may make.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through.
I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement which
shall protect you from any breach of the law.
Please promptly acknowledge receipt of this mail
