On the 21st of April
2005, my client,his wife and their only daughter were involved in car
accident along Carra express Road Lome Togo.All occupants of the
vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then i have made several
inquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended
relatives,this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several
unsuccessful attempts,I decided to contact you,As it may interest you
to know I got your contact through the internet in a library department
of your embassy here in lome togo.
I have contacted you to
assist in retreiving the fund valued at US$12.3 million left behind by
my deceased client before it got confisicated or declared unserviceable
by the Security Finance Firm/ECOBANK where this huge amount were
deposited. The said Security Finance Company has issued me a notice to
provide the next of kin or have his account confisicated within the
next twenty one official working days.
The said Finance
company has for sometime now issued me a notice to provide the next of
kin of my client or his account shall be declared dormant and possibly
confiscated. Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives
for over 2 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of
kin to the deceased since you bear the same last name, 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.I have all necessary information and legal
documents needed to back you up for claim.

from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction
through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate
