Million Dollar : hoax

I have been receiving variants of the mail below for last few months. It shows how Internet criminals are trying to make people fool. Their first objective is to get account number of targeted person and then he/she will left with nothing in his/her account...

Dear Singh,
I am Barrister Kofo Williams (ESQ) a Solicitor; I am the PersonalAttorney to one Engr. Michael Singh a national of your country, whoUsed to be a contractor with NNPC here in Nigeria.
On the 10th October 2002 my client, his wife and entire family wereinvolved in a car accident along 3rd mainland bridge Express Road LagosIsland. Unfortunately they all lost their lives in the event of theaccident,since then I have made several inquiries to their Embassy tolocate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also provedunsuccessful.
After these several Unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace hisRelatives, to locate any member of His family but of no avail, hence Icontacted you since you bear the same surname to my late client. Icontact you to assist in repatriating the money in addition, propertyleft behind by my client before they get Confiscated or declaredUnserviceable by the bank where these huge deposits were lodged.
Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued atabout US$10 million dollars. Consequently, the bank issued me a noticeto provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within thenext ten official working days. Since I have been Unsuccessful inlocating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek your consent topresent you as the next of kin of the deceased, regardless of yourcountry, with your name/address; some vitals will be obtained on yourfavor which will back you as the next of kin to the deceased. Theproceeds of this account valued at US$10 Million dollars can be Paid toyou and then you and me can share like this 45% for me and 45% for you,while we will set aside 10% to pay back for any expenses or tax as yourgovernment may require. I have all necessary legal documents that canbe used to back up any claim we may make.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this dealthrough. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimatearrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please Reply urgently to enable us discuss further. Via this
Best Regards,
Barrister Kofo Williams. (ESQ)
