On the 21st of April 2005, my client, his wife and their two children were involved in a car accident along Ikoyi express Road uturu State Benin.All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives.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 trace his last name over the Internet,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 where these huge deposits were lodged.
Particularly, the funds deposited in Securiy institute were the deceased had an amount valued at about $15.5 million U.S.dollars including 7.500g Alluvial Gold Dust. This istitute has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the money confiscated within the next thirty working days.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name so that the entire sum of $15.5Million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money as thus 40% for me, 30% for you, 20% for Charity Organizations and 10% to cover up any expenses we might incure during the course of this transaction.I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through.I guarantee you 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 urgently.

Best Regards

Barrister James Owen

Actually it's how gold is often found(panned or dry-washed). I see you've never been prospecting.

7500 g of alluvial gold makes it more believable. Anyone could have 7.5 g. I smell scam now.
