Assunto: DETAIL INFORMATION
Thank you very much for your email concerning this pending transaction,please reason with me over this pending issue,to be precise, here is full details of how this transaction will be achieved for your clear understanding.
Firstly, I will like to clearly make you understand,that legally, you have nothing to worry about, as far as this inheritance claim is concerned. as a lawyer with twenty three years of experience, I make bold to say with full authority, that this business is 100% legal, and safe.
I was the deceased attorney.this legally, means that I am mandated to carry out any business dealings on his behalf, as if he was present. I was his attorney for several years, until his death.I was his closest confidant.
As explained above, the deceased had no next of kin to inherit the mentioned amount and his entire estate.been the deceased attorney, I am the only person who can confirm to the bank, the claim of any next of kin, and also advice the bank to effect payment to such a beneficiary.
The reason that you were contacted, is because you bear the same surname as the deceased, and that the deceased migrated from your country down to Nigeria. I want you to put in a claim as the next of kin to the deceased.when I authorize the payment to you, and the money gets into your account, you will take 50% while I take 50%. if you agree with this, then this is how we are going to progress with business:
(a) I will provide you with the recent bank statement of the deceased, and his death certificate.
(b) You will be required to engage the services of a lawyer, who will professionally act on your behalf, as your attorney. such a lawyer so hired, must be duly registered in Nigeria and practices in Nigeria. the attorney will process all the required legal back up documents from the federal high court of justice here in Nigeria and forward same to the bank with the banks application form for inheritance claims, on your behalf.
(c) When the bank receives your claims application, they will immediately draw my attention to it, notifying me that some one has put in a claim as the next of kin to the deceased. I will be asked by the bank to verify the genuiness of the said claim, and recommend to them, what action they should take . as regards payment.
(d) The bank on the receipt of my confirmation, will now get in touch with you, through your attorney, asking that you present them with your banking coordinates, so that they can transfer the money into your norminated account.
(e) When the bank receives your banking information, they will release the money into your norminated account. The above is a very concise explanation of the entire process of this business transaction. this mentioned process, will only take six to seven banking days to complete, from the day that your attorney submits the papers to the bank.now, I will only do this business with you, on the condition that you will promise to be absolutely honest with me, and that you will respect the confidentiality of this business transaction, and keep it as such.
Again we will have to familiarize ourselves, by providing a picture identity of ourselves, so that we can both know whom we are dealing with business wise.
I will need telephone number, contact address and your picture for easy iddentification, call me in order to explain if there is still anything you might want to know,call me on telephone number 234 802641 6541, but I know you and your entire family will forever remain grateful to me and my family after this transaction, God been our helper.
I await your urgent response.
