I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise, Please accept the
content in good faith. I do not intend to cause any grief to you and your
family. The reason for sending this mail is very fundamental to the doctrine
of human privileges and right. My name is Barrister John Wood a legal
practitioner based in London and the personal Attorney to late Mr. Adams, a
national of your country who died along with his wife and two sons who died
in the Tube explosion between King's Cross-and Russell Square in London.
My client was a successful and is an accomplished family man, who made
enough fortune before his untimely death. Since then I had made several
Inquiries through your Embassy to locate any of my clients extended relative
but this exercise has proved unsuccessful. After several unsuccessful
attempts, I decided to trace his relatives through the Internet, to locate
any member of his family, not much progress was recorded. My late client was
an influential wealthy businessman, an oil merchant here in London and he
left behind a deposit of Twelve Million Two Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars only ($12.2Millionusd) in his domiciliary bank account in a
commercial bank here in London.
After the death of my client his bankers contacted me, as his Attorney to
provide his next of kin who should inherit his funds. The board of directors
of his bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of
kin for the payment of this money within 28 Working days or forfeit the
money to the bank as an abandoned property. The bankers had planned to
invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after
the expiration of the period given to me.
Fortunately, I came across your name, to my greatest astonishment, I
discovered that you bear the same surname with my late client and
coincidentally, you are nationals of the same country. Being convinced that
you may be related with my late client or that you might provide clue to my
search, I therefore, decided to contact with these facts before me, because
of the similarities. By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his
immediate family, I am very much aware of my client financial standing and
the bank account he operates.
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 funds left in his bank account. I therefore seek your consent to
present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are at an
advantage, bearing the same surname and equally from the same country that
the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at $12.2 Million Dollars can be
paid to you. We shall both share the funds. 40% for me and 55% to you, while
5% should be for Expenses or your Government may require as Tax.
I shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back
up our claim. 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 that will protect you from any breach of law.
