Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unanticipated mail to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust but is just the pressing need confronting me at moment which has to be dealt with urgently,
I am Mr. James Kosi; Personal Attorney to late Engr.Fox Bluea a foreign expert who worked with Chevron Oil Company , On the 16th of June 2015, my client his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the mishap. Since then I made several effort in locating any of their relatives, which has been unsuccessful. After several unsuccessful attempts in locating them, I decided to contact you for assistance in repatriating the funds left behind by my client in a security firm; which an Ultimatum has been given me by the firm to present a Next of kin to his deposit.
Fortunately, the Finance House where the money US$17 Million (seventeen Million United States Dollars only) was deposited knows me as his personal attorney and has asked me to come up with someone to claim the fund (NEXT OF KIN) and fourteen working days was given me to do so else the fund will be confiscated by the Authority this I am trying to avoid as it will be of no benefit allowing the management to take over the fund and since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of his relatives and the deadline is fast running , I want to seek your permission that you enable me present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the fund will be released to you by the firm.
Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement in this. The good news about the clam is that I have in my custody all legal backup documents to the claim. All I need from you is nothing other than honesty/ co-operation that will enable us conclude this deal without delay and I also assure that this deal will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of the law.
