Good Day,

I am Mr Phil Williams a solicitor at law. I am the personal Attorney to a foreign national that lived and worked here in Nigeria with of the Oil company. However my client on the 1st May 2015, was involved in a car Clash along Kumasi – Accra Express road Ghana with his family. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared nu-serviceable by the bank where this huge deposit was lodged in Bank where the deceased had an account.

After notification of the death of the deceased the Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next 90 days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives since all this while till now, thats why I seek your consent to purport you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. If you agree we can discuss the percentage you will have as compensation on your involvement.

As a lawyer we can work out all necessary legal papers that can be used to back up the facts and claim the Fund. All I require is your honest, cooperation and Sincerity 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 law.

Awaiting your response.
Best regards,
Mr Phil Williams.(Esq)
