Lome Togo. West Africa.
Dear as it may be of your keen interest. I am Bar.Kelvin Koffi Esq, a solicitor at law, personal attorney to Mr. P.B. (My family name here), a national of your country and a contractor with Togo Regional Water Scheme in Lome Togo. Here in after shall be referred to as my client.On the 21st of Feb 2002, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along Nouvissi express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here 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 over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$20.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the (AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK ADB-LOME TOGO) where this huge amount were deposited.This said (AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK ADB-LOME TOGO) has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confisicated if no response within their next Board Meeting. Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 4 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same names, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer.
I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please get in touch with me directly at my private email for more details. (email@example.com)Best Regards.Bar.KelvinKoffi, Lome Togo.
Are there any idiots who really fall for this scheme? How stupid do you have to be?
