With my pains, I need your sincerity to execute this transaction with you
in utmost good faith and trust. I am Barrister Frank Williams, a Solicitor
-At - Law and the personal attorney to a citizen of your country,who worked
with Shell Development Company Niger Delta State, Nigeria.
I am contacting you due to the urgency this demands. My client died in a
militant hostage with the entire family of three (3) because of his
disobedience as an expatraite to obey with their demands in Bonny Crude oil
extractions. He had a very huge deposit in a bank here and no one to make
claims because the next of kin is needed to make the claims.
I seek your permission to have you stand as the "next of kin" to him.I
will give you details on your notice of interest to assist.
I remain in contact,
Frank Williams Esq.

you as we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past, I

resolved to contact you assistance in this manner. I duly apologize for

Same last name with you and a nationality of your Country who used to
work With Chevron Oil Company in Nigeria on the 22nd of May 2005, my
Client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car
Accident along Lagos 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 client's extended
relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several
unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the
internet, to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I
contacted you. I have contacted you to assist me in repatriating the
money left behind by my late client before they got confiscated or
declared unserviceable by the Finance House where these huge deposits
were Lodged. Particularly, the Finance House where the deceased had a
consignment valued about Sixty Million United State dollars
($60,000,000.00) . They have issued me a notice to provide the next-of-
kin or have the consignment confiscated within the next ten official
working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives
for over two year (2) Years now, I seek your consent to present you as
the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this
consignment/funds valued about Sixty Million ($60,000,000.00) can be
paid to you and then you and I can share the money, 50% to me and 50%
for you. I will work out all the necessary legal documents that can be
used to back up this claim , all I require is your honest co-operation
