Subject : More information
Attention: John Smith ,
Thanks for your prompt and sensitive message to me. It may interest you
to know that I got your contact from a directory and then decided to contact
you. Of course it is entirely my right to choose whosover I want for this affair. However I must inform you that I am a very spiritual person and I
have a strong convinction to deal with you. I have a moral obligation to
do this instead of the funds getting lost.
I view this as a business partnership where traditionally both parties
share in the rewards because of our participating roles. We are duty bound to
each other in terms of trust and a proportionate exchange of information to
ensure this venture is a mutual win-win proposition.
The institution recognizes me as the attorney and sole executor of my
late client's estate and will partly depend on my evidential presentation to
release this consignment/fund to you. As I have implied earlier, you need therefore to take all precautions and spare no expense to keep this
matter entirely confidential. I wouldn't want to lose my legal practising
licence if this is exposed. On conclusion of the transaction, we will share the proceeds 50-50.
Having said thus, you should know that trust is the engine that drives
this kind of business and in the absence of it, things might go awry
I also expect that you have accepted the sharing formula as it must not
pose any problem for us after the deal. Before we proceed on this deal, I believe you will both understand and appreciate that my requests for
the above information certainly seem fair given the control and role that you
have as the receiver of the funds. The mutual trust and dependency for
accurate information is a two way street and the engine that drives this
kind business. The basis for the establishment of mutual trust is not exhaustive though. Therefore don't hesitate to send to me any other information you deem fit as a further proof of your loyalty.
Awaiting your resonse.

N/B: The next of kinship is not limited to relations of the deceased nor
is it confided to the circuit of parental relationship, rather it is by
choice of the benefactor as regards to whom he wish to will it to (beneficiary)
either formally by write up, or informally by secret information
disclosure to the beneficiary, be him/her business partner, relation,kinsmen,friends
or well wisher, therefore by virtue of the above stated, I seek your consent
to present you as the next of kin to my late client since the supposed next
of kin also died along with him.
The truth remains that you may or may not be the real relative to my late
client, but for the fact that he has the same last/surname with you, you
can with my aid as his personal lawyer be approved by the firm as his next of
kin because I have all the secret information that are contained in this
security file jacket with the firm that will facilitate that.
This transaction should be between us and it shall remain confidential
for security reasons till success is achieved to avoid misconception from
whom you may have carelessly leaked this secreet information to.
Expecting your call immediately with mail.

Attn: Dear Smith
Re: Regarding Late Mr. J. Smith
I am Barrister Paul Chibu, a legal practitioner, I am the personal
attorney to Mr. J. Smith, a national Of your country, who used to work with Mobil Development Company in Lome, Togo. He used to be my client.
On the 7th June, 2004, my client, his wife and their only daughter were
involved in a car accident along Nouvissi express Road. All occupants of
the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several
enquiries 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 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 fund valued at
US$6.7 million left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared
unserviceable by the finance firm where this huge amount were deposited.
The said Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have
his account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days. Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 2years now, I seek the 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. I have all necessary
information and legal documents needed to back you up for the claim.
All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under
legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of the law.
Awaiting your urgent response.
Barrister Paul Chibu
