Eight years ago, My Client successfully executed a contract for the Nigeria Government worth US$30.3M, .A part payment of USD$10M was paid to my client, while the balance of USD$20.3M was still unpaid before my client died in the Indian Ocean Tsunami disaster. However, all my efforts to locate the possible next of kin proved abortive. Untill his sudden demise, He was not married and was 64years old.
NOW THE CRUX OF THIS E-LETTER is that the Government Of Nigeria through the Central Bank is fully paying all foreign Contractors who have successfully executed their contracts and my client is among those benefited in this second quarter payment schedule which has already been approved and ready for payment.
As his personal attorney/Adviser, his Bank has officially notified and instructed me to forward particulars of my client's next of kin within the next 14 official working days so that he can be paid the outstanding USD20.3M otherwise his payment will be diverted to the Government coffers account as uncliamed bill.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of his relatives, I decided to contact you for a deal so that we can work together as a team to remit the money to your account as my client next of kin since I do not want to seat and watch my client hard earned entitlement to go astray,it will be easy for us to achieve without any hiccups because i have all documents at my disposal.
Although I know that a transaction of this magnitude might make anyone apprehensive but I would like to assure you that I am proposing this project to you with the best of intensions. As a lawyer, I have the power to secure all the necessary legal documents that will be used for this claim.
All I require from you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this transaction will be executed under a Legitimate banking arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. Upon successful conclusion of this project,you will be compensated with 30% of the total fund,while 70% will be for me.
