I am Joseph Onalia, an Attorney by profession from Republic of Togo, Senior Advocate of Togo, (S.A.T).
It might interest you to know that I have a deceased client that bears the same surname with you.
Mr A I. came to Togo in 1988 and was working with Shell Development company, Lome Togo.
In 1996 Before his death, I assisted him in making a 15years fixed deposit worth $9.5M which has now Matured to USD$21M payment by the financial institution.
The bank has notified me to provide the next of kin or have the account Confiscated within the next 60 official working days.
I am contacting you for two reasons. Firstly, you both have the same last name, which makes the claim most credible. Secondly, I strongly believe that the financial firm does not deserve to inherit the funds.With your permission, I wish to  proceed to establish you as the next of kin/Beneficiary to my late client.
Do not be afraid as I am his representative attorney and stand the capability to provide all the necessary paperwork to back up this claim until the funds are released to you, We will split.
As it is currently valued at US$21M USD. I intend to split the total US$21M USD with you equaly 50%/50%, after deducting any expenses that comes up during the process of this transaction and thereafter i shall invest my own share in real estate business in your country. Let’s work this out for I have all the documents to prove you as the heir to my deceased client.  If this is against your principles, I do humbly apologize and please do keep very secret.
Kindly get back to me with your;
Full name…………………
Telephone number……………….
I look forward to hearing from you if you are ready to proceed on this transaction.
