Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust,
I am John Azikwe; I am the Personal Attorney to Engr Steve Anderson. Who used to work with Agip Oil Company in Nigeria as a foreign expert? On the 20th May 2007, he and his wife including their three children were involved in a car accident along Lokoja Express way.
Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident. Since then I have made several inquiries at the Embassy to locate any of my client’s relatives, which has also proved unsuccessful. hence, I contacted you to assist in restoring the money left behind by my client in a Bank.
Consequently, the Bank has issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to claim the $17M in their custody within the next ten official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over the years now, I seek your consent to claim the fund so that the fund will be transferred to your account by the Bank.
Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement of the fund and then you and I will share the money in this order: 60 for me, 40 for you.
All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please get in touch with me through my alternative email address: (email@example.com) for further details.
John Azikwe Esq)
