Dear Sir/Madam,

I am an accountant with OCEANIC BANK PL C. My name is Mr. Peter Collins. I
am the Personal Account officer to Engineer.Andrew Wilson, a National of
your country,who is a contractor with the DEPARTMENT OF PETROLEUM
RESOURCES,VICTORIA ISLAND LAGOS. Herein after shall be referred to as my
client On 30 JAN 2000,my client,his wife and their three children were
involved in the Kenya Airways flight with registration number 5Y-BEN which
departed from Nairobi to destination Lagos and all the passengers on-board
and the flight crew, including his family died in this fatal
air crash on 30 JAN 2000. Since then I have made several inquiries to your
embassy to locate any of my clients extended Relatives, this has also
proved unsuccessful after these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided
to trace his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his
family hence I contacted you.

I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left
behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable
by the bank where these huge deposits were lodged,particularly the
CITIZENS BANK OF NIGERIA PL C. Where the deceased had an account valued at
about($17.5 Million US Dollars)has issued me a notice 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 4years
now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased
since you have the same last name so that the proceeds of this account
valued at ($17.5 Million US Dollars) can be paid to you and then you and I
can share the money 50% to me and 40% to you. While 10% for
unforeseen bottle necks we might incur in this transaction an attorney
will be contracted to help us re validate and notarize all the necessary
legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make.

Please indicate your willingness by sending the below information for more
clarification and easy communication.

Your full name.
Your contact address.
Your tel and fax numbers.
Status and Your Age

through.I guarantee that this will be executed
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach
of the law.
