Personal Attorney Seeking Next Of Kin
This spam is not much different from the other varieties of Nigerian money laundering scams I've seen; the only difference in this case is that the spammer has taken the trouble to find out my last name so he can present the notion that he represents the estate of someone with the same last name as me.
Obviously, I don't need to tell you, we stay away from stuff like this. You won't make a penny off it. At best you'll get taken to the cleaners, and at worst, you'll end up in jail. Stay away.
I am Barrister Obasi Michael, a solicitor at law.I am the personal attorney to Late Mr. Mark Twitchell, a national of your country, who until his death was an employee with Chevron Oil Exploration Company in Nigeria. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 1999, my client, his wife and their three Children were involved in a car accident along Sagbama express-road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost
Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy 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 so as to
locate any nearest relative or to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared
unserviceable by the bank here where the huge deposits were lodged. The Constitutional provision of the Federal Republic of Nigeria further mandates the deceased attorney to repatriate the fund to original country of deceased
if stablished. Particularly, Continental Trust Bank PLC where the deceased had an account valued at $7,000,000.00 (Seven million US dollars) has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated
within the next 21 official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 4 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name and from the native country of the
deceased, so that the proceeds of this account valued at $7million dollars can be paid to you and then you can disburse as follows:
1) 40% to you.
2) 30% to Me
3) 30% to your choice of Charity and humanitarian organizations in your country.
I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may stand to make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this project through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please, reply me through my private email address(firstname.lastname@example.org).
