421 Fraud mail

Just got this, and the funny thing is, does not mention which country it is from, I know personally that the country where a lot of this stuff originates from, Nigeria, does have a "Badagry Express Way"... I haven't been in that country for 20 years; since long before the internet...And anyone that knows Nigeria would be familiar with this

Dear Sir,

I am Barr. Ahmed Usman, a legal practitioner, I am the personal attorney to Alhaji Ibrahim Ashraf. On the 21st of April 2003, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Badagry express Way. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives.

Since then I have made several enquiries to the embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful.After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to made a search in the internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.

I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confisicated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged particularly, where the deceased had an account valued at about US$10.5million dollars. The bank has issued me a notice to provide the
next of kin.

Since I have been unsuccessfull in locating the relatives for over 2 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$10.5million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through.

I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me by my private email above to enable us discuss further.Thank you very much for your co-operation.

Best regards,
Barr. Ahmed Usman
