These following letters are what i recieved from these people,they have not yet taken anything because i found your webpage before sending them my routing # to my bank account and the fact that the sheet they sent me looked bogus,thank you for this ATTN; MR STEWART JAMES MARTINEZ.



Dear Martinez,
I am Barrister larry .c. mohammed personal attorney to Mr.H.Martinez, a
national of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company
here in Nigeria herein after, shall be referred to me as my client. On
the 21st of April 2000,my client, his wife
and their three children were involved in a ghastly motor accident along
Warri-Sagbama Express road.
Unfortunately, all occupants of the vehicle lost
their lives as the vehicle caught fire after the crash.
Since then I have
made several inquiries to your embassy 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.
My purpose of contacting you is to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client prior to his death before they get
confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge
deposits were lodged particularly, the UNION TRUST BANK where the
deceased had an account valued at about US$25Million dollars. The bank
had issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account
confiscated within the next thirty official working days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2
years now I seek your consent to present
you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name/surname
so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$25 million dollars
can be paid to you and then we can share the money afterwards. I have
all the necessary official and legal documents that can be used to back
up the claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation to
enable us inseeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be
executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
breach of the law.
For your sevices you will have 35% of the total sum, while 5% have been
mapped out for the orphanage Homes.
Please get in touch with me by my email address no:

Best regards,

Dear mrs. k.martinez,

Thanks for your mail and your willness to help,i will like to also let you know of the procedure.I decided to propose this transaction to you in strict confidence.
I contacted you to help repatriate this fund left behind by the deceased since I do not want the bank to freeze the account because of the non-appearance of his next of kin ever since his death.

My main focus is to use my position as the attorney to the deceased mr h.martinez. to present you as the next of kin to the deceased and apply that his entitlement be transferred to you through the said legal processes.

We shall start by sending a formal application to this effect. I will do that on your behalf,

Thereafter, the bank may request of your account were the fund will be tranferd into.
I am on the stand by to see that everthing is done successfull.and Once we have provided the Bank with their requested informations you will need to sent to then, like your full name and address, yout tell/fax numbers,and an account number were you will like that bank to transfer the fund into,they would now be under legal obligation to transfer the funds to your submitted bank account.

Be assured that the procedures to be adopted in
effecting the transfer in your favor will be official
and legal which will protect us from any breach of the law now and after the transfer though this transaction requires confidentiality.
Above all,

I personally count on the will and blessing
of the almighty God to facilitate our plan and
understanding, to produce not just success, but also
peaceful sharing of the funds at the end of the day
and a healthy family business relationship thereafter.

I also pray for establishment of cordial relationship
between us, God being our helper.

Send to me your personal telephone numbers for
effective communication.

Regards from

barrister larry cuje
