Dear Friend,
 Greetings to you my dear friend, this proposal 
 will come to you as surprise. This is because 
 we have not met before.
 I am sending you this email regarding the huge 
 opportunity that will be of mutual benefit to 
 the two of us.
 I know that a transaction of this magnitude will
 make  any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring
 you that everything documentation that will bring about
 the success of this transaction would be provided.
 However, I am Peter Boltton, the personal
 assistance to the late Mr and Mrs Charles B. Yates  
 Citizens of the United States.
 My Boss and his family died in an air plane crash on
  November 12, 2001 in an Airbus A300-600 jet,
 registered N14053 which left JFK bound for Santo Domingo's Las 
 Americas International Airport, crashed into the 
 Belle Harbour neighbourhood of Queens, New York
 shortly after takeoff from John F.Kennedy International
 Airport. Killing all Passengers on board. You can confirm 
 from the website below
  unfortunately him and all his family members lost
 their lives since then I have made several enquiries to 
 several Embassies 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 of no avail, hence I
 contacted you. 
 I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money 
 and property left behind by my client and his family
 since I have no place to locate any of his relatives. I
 can easily convince his bank in the with legal practice 
 that you are the only surviving relation of my 
 Boss. Otherwise the Estate he left behind will be 
 confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank
 where these huge deposits were lodged.
 Particularly, my late Boss had an account with one
 of the banks Europe. Valued at about US$16.5Million
  (Sixteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States
  Dollars) which I witness the documentations in
 Europe before he left for the states on 10 Nov 2001.
 Conseqently,The bank issued me a notice to provide
 the next of kin to my Boss since I have been
 unsuccessfully  in locating the relatives. 
 I seek your consent to present you as the next of
 kin of  the deceased so that the proceeds of this account
 valued  at US$16.5Million (Sixteen Million Five Hundred
 Thousand  United States Dollars) will be paid into your
 account  and then you and I can share the money. 55% to me
 and 40% to you, while 5% should be for expenses, tax as
 your government may require. 
 All necessary legal documents that can be used 
 to back up any claim we may make will be provided.
  All I require is your honest co-operation to enable
 us  see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be
  executed under a legitimate arrangement that will 
 protect you from any breach of the law.
