Dear friend, 
I am Dr.dr andersom williams,Solicitor. I am the Personal
Attorney to ENGR.THOMAS RICE a national of United State of
America, who used to work with shell/oil Development
Company in London as the chief Engineer. On the 2nd of may
1999, my client, his wife And their 
three children were involved in a car accident along
Cardiff Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle
unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made
several enquiries to their embassy to locate any of my
clients extended relatives, this has also proved 
unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I
decided to trace his relatives over the Internet, to locate
any member of his family but to no avail hence I contacted
you to assist in repatriating the money that belong to my
client before they get confiscated or 
declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposit
was lodged. 
Particularly, the Bank where the late decease had an
account valued at about 3 million dollars has issued me a
notice today to provide the next of kin or have the account
confiscated within the next ten official working days.Since
i have been unsuccessful in locating the 
relatives for over 4 years now I seek your consent to
present you as the next of kin of the deceased, so that the
proceeds of this account valued at $3 million dollars can
be paid to your account For your assistance, you shall be
compensated with 20% of the fund while 5% should be for
expenses or tax as your government may require. 
I will appreciate that you forward the following 
information so that we can proceed immediately with the 
1. Your full name and address 
2. your telephone and fax numbers
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us have
this transaction accomplished. I have all the documents

arrangement. This will protect everyone involved from
breach of the law. I will also send you text of claim
application to fill out. You shall be expect to fill it out
and forwarded to 
the bank, requesting for the immediate remittance of the
fund into your nominated account.It is worthy to note that
due to the nature of this transaction absolute
confidentiality is required when 
the fund has been remitted into your nominated account. I
must assure you, once again, this transaction is safe and

been put in place for its success. All is required of you
