Dear Friend,

Good day, I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail may cause you, as we have not met before. I am 
Barrister John Maduako, a solicitor at law; I am the personal attorney to Engineer Garry Millan a 
national of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Nigeria, hereinafter 
referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2005, my client, his wife and their children were 
involved in a car accident along Kano-Sokoto express Road while arriving from Easter Holiday to 
Warri Delta State.

All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several 
enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives but this has proved 
unsuccessful.I came across your name and contact, while I was searching for Late Engineer Garry 
Millan's relations. Since my search was unsuccessful, I decided to contact you for this project. I 
am contacting you to assist me in repatriating the money and properties left behind by my client 
before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance House and bank where these 
funds were deposited.

Particularly, the finance house where the deceased deposited as family treasure, a consignment 
valued USD18.5 Million, last year issued me a 12 months notice to provide the Next of Kin or have 
the fund consignment confiscated, and this ultimatum expires by next month. Since I have been 
unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years now, I your consent to present you as the 
Next of Kin so thatthe proceed of this deposit valued at USD18.5 Million can be released to you and 
then you and I can share the money, 40% for me 40% for you,

and the remaining 20% will be for expenses and tax. He made on the money in one of the Oil deals he 
had with our Oil Ministers. I also can procure all necessary legal documents that can be used to 
back up any claim we are to make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this 
business through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that 
will protect the both parties from any breach of the law.

As we proceed you will begin to realize that it is risk free and confidential. I have to instruct 
you on   what to do at every time to avoid mistake from your side. Send this information to me 
Immediately for application/introduction letter to the bank on your behalf as the next of kin.
