Awakk Law Firm—Solicitors, Advocates, Notary Public & Legal Adviser

Hey! Never been in Africa, and even though some say they speak English, French or German, when they do they use many words the wrong way. But this one is funny: A Law Firm of Advocates...

Note that in French we translate Attorney as Avocat. So that's most certainly the French word poorly translated to English. Still quite funny! 8-)

toward this fund transfer. I am Barrister  Victor Awakk Zamani, a solicitor
at law.I am the personal attorney to Mr. Steve Briggs Rahman, A nationality
of your country,who used to work with  shell development company here in
Nigeria .Before his death On the 21st of April 2005[my client, and his
wife and their three children  were involved in a car Accident along
sagbama express road Nigeria  in which all occupants of the motor died}.
My client {Rahman} deposited the sum of (us$10,000,000,00) in African
Development Bank Group (A.D.B), here in  Nigeria for himself,with the
hope of transferring it to his country. Since his death I have made
several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended
relatives this has also proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his  the
family over  Internet, to locate any member of his family hence  I
contacted you to stand as the next of kin so that we can have the
chance to apply for the bank and authorities concerned for the release
of the inheritance of us$10m to your account for our own  useage only.
I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property
left behind by my late client before they get it  confiscated or
Declared unserviceable by the African Development  Bank Group (A.D.B),
where the (Money) were Deposited.Particularly,  the Government of my
country  and the bank where the deceased Deposited the Sum valued at
$10,000,000,00 million dollar in fixed account  has issued  me a
notice to provide the next of  kin in  ten official banking days.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over
2years now I seek your  Consent to present you as the next of kin of
thedeceased since you are from the same country with the late client.
($10,000,000,00) million dollars can be claimed by you if you can
send all the needed information listed. for your  information the
money will beshare 40% to you and 50% to me and the  10% will be
for expenses each

used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest
cooperation to enable us see this deal through.
