Dear Sir, You may naturally be surprised to get this proposal since we have not met before or discussed about business. I got your contact from my search for a honest and sincere person. My name is Barrister Vincent MorrisEsq, an attorney-at-law. I am writing to you concerning the pathetic fate of my late client, Mr. Harrison Couch, an American citizen from New Orleans. He was awarded a 5-year Turn Around Maintenance {T.A.M.} and allied contract services on revolving basis by the Nigerian Refineries Management Agency {N.R.M.A.} and he put a lustre performance record during the course of this project. He executed this contract meritoriously to the satisfaction of the entire management of NRMA. But as fate may have it, Mr. Harrison Couch, wife and only child, unfortunately died in the Hurrican Cathrina Incident which happend on the 1st sept' 2005, while he was on leave to visit his family. You can refer to the Hallmark National Newspaper,02\9\2005,page 3,for verification of incident. At the time of his death, he had the sum of eighteen million seven hundred and fifty three thousand United State's Dollars{$18,753,000} only outstanding debt to collect from NRMA, through his bank. By dint of hard work coupled with my compassion for my late client, Through legal battles I was able to persuade the N.R.M.A. to pay the above amount of money in favour of my client late Mr. Couch. After eight consecutive months of legal battle with the bank, the cheque was finally paid to the bank, but late Mr. Couch has no legitimate next-of-kin or beneficiary to claim the money till date. As an attorney, it behoves me to assist my late client's family to get the decease's money but obviously not at the expense of breaching the law. Following this development therefore, I started earnestly searching for the late contractor's family through the American Embassy in Nigeria and other sources in U.S.A. but all to no avail. Now, a greater problem than getting Mr. Couch's next-of-kin has arisen. The bank has given me 30 days ultimatum to provide Mr. Couch's family member or the account be declared unserviceable. Hence, I write you to act as the next-of-kin to late Mr. Couch . You will get 30% as compensation and my Chamber 60%. while 10% will be for all local and international expenses during this transaction. This transaction is 100% risk free. I think I have sincerely explained the whole truth to you. Pls if your interested, kindly send your name and address, phone and fax number for easy communication. Thanking you in advance for your co-operation and camaraderie. Hope to hear from you soon.Email at: ( Best regards, Barrister. Vincent Morris Esq.

this is a scam for Sure! I have received many e-mails like this is my company e-mail add. I have responded to one e-mail...this time he is still alive but dyeing..he told me he's a rich man but dying with cancer and wants to donate half of his money to charity but his family wont let him. So he needs somebody to go to London and meet his lawyer there and he will give me special power of attorney. After I think 5 emails I stopped responding as he is asking me to pay my trip to London also the accomodation but he promised to give it back after I finsh the mission...but this is clearly a scam...same as the careful not to give any informations with this person.

Fraud!!!! No bank can impose a 30 day moritorium under any conditions, certainly not these. Why would a bank want to? They would lose the use of the money. If there was $18M (or any amount), it would go into a govenment trust account. As I said - Pure Fraud! I hope you go to jail!
