Herein after shall be referred to my client, On the 11th of September 2001 my client was involved in world trade center bombing. Unfortunately lost his life three month after the incident due to injuries he sustained in the bombing, since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my client extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name to locate any of his relatives hence I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at US$10.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance Security Company in Lome/Togo where this huge amount was deposited in a trunk box under the coverage of family valuables. The said security company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have this box confiscated within the next twenty one official working days as they don't know the content of the box. Since I have been unsuccessfully in locating the relatives for over 9years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased, so that the proceedings of this box can be transfer to you. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfers as I have every 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. (Foster Victor ,Esq. ) Principal Attorney

    Dear XXXXX,

    Thanks for your message. I appreciate your concern to know more about the pending transaction. Actually it is strange as we have not met before and suddenly I wrote you for such discussion.

    I personally want to appeal to you to keep this information only to yourself because I did know the effort I have made to ensure the finalization of this transaction. This is a genuine transaction that has to be completed with no breach of law.

    Brief introduction, I am Mr. Foster Victor, a lawyer and was the personally attorney and advisor to late Mr. ( R. Blumberg ) who died here with the family while returning back from a short holidays in auto crash.

    My reason of contacting you is because I have made all attempts to locate his close relatives with no avail I therefore decided to come to you hence you have the same last name with him believing that we can handle this matter which I have to take the responsibilities of legalizing it in your name for immediate approval to be given for the transfer.

    I hope to hear from you to enable me give you further details necessary for actualizing this project.


    Victor Foster.
