Dear Friend,

I presume this letter will come to you as a surprise, but as things unfold,we
will know each other better. I will start by introducing  myself to you. My name
is Barrister Olu Thomas a solicitor at law.

I am writing in respect of a foreigner Mr.David Frenchman, who happens to be my
client an oil merchant and contractor who perished in a plane crash of [EGYPTIAN
CHARTER] with other passengers aboard on Red Sea early on January 3 2004,shortly
after taking off from the resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, killing all the 135
passengers and 13 crew members aboard asyou confirm it on the website below:

Since the demise of my client  I personally have watched with keen interest to
see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his
funds of US$36.5m (Thirty Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollar) the  bank has no record of any next of  kin.On this note, I decided to
seek for whom his name shall be used as his next of kin so I have contacted you
to assist in repatriating most especially, the money left behind by my client
before they get  confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where the
huge deposits werelodged.

Particularly, Equity Development Bank of Nig , where the deceased had an
account valued at about $36.5 million dollars has issued me a notice to provide
the Next of kin, or have the account confiscated.

I seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin of the deceased,I need
somebody who is trustworthy and willing to assist me get the funds transfered.
Whcih the account which my late client operate is valued at $36.5 million
dollars can be paid to you, as my clients Next of Kin, and then we can share the
amount on a mutual agreed percentage.

All legal documents to back up your claim as the deceased Next of Kin will  be
provided. All I require is your honest cooperation 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 and you  should endeavor to
keep it confidential.

Please get in touch with me at, to enable us discuss
further about this transaction.

Best Regards,
Barr.Olu Thomas.
