Dear sir,

I know that you may be surprised in receiving this confidential proposal
from somebody you do not know,but please do not be alarmed It is as a
result of the urgency and nature of the business that made me to contact
you in this manner. I am Athorney Roland Biquet, a personal attorney to
late Mr. John Cuthbertson, (hereinafter referred to as my client an
expatriate and an oil/mining contractor who used to work in my country
back in London as an Engineering Consultant with UK Mining Corporation.

On the 31st of January 2000, my client died from an air crash aboard
Alaska Airline flight 261 that crashed into the Pacific Ocean on
My client used to be a close friend of my late father who also died four
years ago. Shortly, before my client death, he had instructed me to
prepare his WILL but without a named beneficiary yet. He had already
signed the WILL and was contemplating to make the will to the motherless
babies homes the beneficiary since he had no wife nor children before he
died from air crash. Since that unfortunate incident, I have made several
enquiries to locate any of my client's relatives to facilitate
repatriation of his estate from Africa. My efforts up till date proved

The reason for contacting you is to assist me urgently in repatriating the
sum of Twenty five million six hundred thousand  U.S. Dollars
(US$25,600,000) left behind by my client before his death. This amount of
money is kept in safe custody with a security/finance company operating
between Europe. The security company has issued me a notice to provide the
next-of- kin of my client or have the money declared unserviceable and
returned to the UK government. I can not claim this money myself because
of my position as the Attorney to the deceased and the Security Company is
aware of this situation.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of his relatives for seven
years now, I seek your consent for a confidential co-operation with me so
that I can present you as the next-of-kin to my client Mr. John
Cuthbertson for the money to be paid to you as the beneficiary. Note that
this transaction is simple and risk free because I will provide you with
expert legal services, documentations and transaction codes that will
guarantee the successful execution of this deal with the security/finance
company. All I require is your honesty and serious co-operation to enable
us see the deal through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under
a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

I wish to point out that after the claims, I would want 20% of this money
to be shared among charity organizations, while the remaining 80% is
shared equally between us. You will agree with me that It is a better
judgement for us to claim this money and put into profitable/peaceful use
than allowing it to be confiscated and divided amongst the corrupt
government in UK. If you are capable of handling this transaction, please
reply via my email with your full
names and telephone number to enable us discuss and proceed accordingly.

Yours faithfully,
Attorney Roland Biquet.
