Dear Sir/Ma,

I am Barrister Tony Williams, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to late Mr. PITT 
GUILLORY, a national of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, who used to work with Shell Petroleum 
Development Company in Nigeria. Here in after shall be referred to as my client.
On the 21st of April 2000, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car 
accident along sagbama express road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. 
Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended 
relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided 
to contact you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at US$8.5million 
left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the ZENITH 
INTERNATIONAL BANK LIMITED) where this huge amount were deposited. The said BANK has issued me a 
notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next fourteen official 
working days.
For the fact that I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 10 years now, I seek 
the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased, so that the fruit of the old man's 
labour will not be squandered by some corrupt Nigerians that the proceeds of this account can be 
paid to you.
Therefore, I have decided to give you 455% of this amount, 55% for me. and then discuss the 
modalities for the transfer. I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back 
you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this 
transaction 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 through or Advise me on when best  
to call you. 

Feel free to call me on this number +234 8020967989

Best regards,
Barrister Tony Williams
