I have the pleasure in writing this letter to you in strict Confidence and I know that my letter will come to you as a great surprise.
My name is Barr.Hadzi Rochas. I am a Lawyer, I reside and practice in the Republic of Lome-Togo. I am writing you this letter with good faith in respect of one late MR.D.E. ZIVKOVIC, who was my client here in Togo, until his untimely death in the year 2004, in a ghastly motor accident, which claimed his life along with that of his wife and only Son.
I am now faced with a new challenge and moral question of whether to allow the financial institutions where my late client had his monies to appropriate it to themselves, because he seems to have had no survivor, next of kin, or who should demand for and collect these monies from the financial institution.
I am therefore contacting you to solicit for your co-operation because your having the same Surname with the deceased. The combination of the facts that I was his Attorney and you having the same last name with him, will indeed enable us collect the sum of (US$I3,58O,000,00) plus interests accruing, which the deceased kept in a Savings and Loans Mortgage Institution here in my country. My idea here is that the two of us will share this amount with the accrued interests, in an agreed ratio, when it is paid to you as the supposed next-of-kin, because we need each other to make this happen.
I will have access to all the necessary legal documents that will be used to back up any claim we choose to make to the money and no questions, or suspicions will be raised anywhere, since I was his real Attorney, until his death. I have earlier put this Mortgage institution where this money is on notice, that soon I will be assisting my client's next-of-kin in claiming and withdrawing the money.
Accordingly, I guarantee that you will not be at any danger/risk of any breach of international/local law and will therefore not have any problem now, or in the future as a result of this transaction. My proposal is that you allow to be presented for this role so that documentation can be processed and payment made in your favour. This is a project which will see us partner to realize.
I would be willing for us to discuss terms of participation in order to protect our various interests. If you concur with this proposal, kindly get back to me with your full names, your physical address, your direct telephone and fax numbers so that we can discuss proper regarding this transaction.
I want to assure you right away that I have positioned this deal to not last for more that two weeks.
Please i look forward to receiving your urgent reply to my private, E-mail
Barrister Hadzi Rochas.
