I don't like his fees:

Sir,
I received your mail, and understand that I have to pay $36700 now and $15000 later. I am not able to raise that much money at the moment, you will have to wait until I get my uncles inheritance.

In america the lawyers use the "No cure - No Pay" principle. It should also be applied to this case, since I havent seen any proof whatsoever of the existance of the funds.

Have a nice day, ...

Dear Mr. Daniels,

I dont think you understand what is meant by "No cure - no pay". It means that you make the necessary paperwork, pay the necessary fees etc, and if you succeed, meaning that I get my inheritance, I pay you. Should you not succeed, because you make some error, and I dont get my inherintance, then I dont have to pay you.

I am willing to pay you $50.000 which is much more than you asked for.

Please confirm that this is acceptable to you, or else I will have to find another lawyer.

Regards, ...

Dear Patience,

Sorry for the late reply, but it has been a problem to get my laptop connected to the internet.

As you know, I arrived thursday night, after a very tiring trip, so I slept most of Friday. I went to Lake Togo yesterday. You have a very beatiful country. It is much warmer here than I am used to, so I think I will have to buy some new clothing tomorrow.

I am also moving out of the hotel tomorrow, to stay with an old business associate, Jefferson Anikomi.

I was hoping to visit you tuesday morning, the 23rd. Will that be alright?

Please confirm the address:

On the 21st of April 2000, my client, his wife and their only son were involved in a car accident along bagida express road.

All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy 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 assets and Capital valued at US$25.5million left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the management of the Finance/security company, where these huge deposits were lodged. The said finance/security company, has issued me a notice to provide the next of Kin or have the account confiscated within the next twenty Official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 4years now, I seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer.
