Attention: Dear Friend 

It is with trust and believe that I write to you, although I don't 
know you neither have I seen you before, but my confidence was 
reposed On you. I am Barrister Mac James , a personal Attorney to 
Mr.Fredric Wood, and a National of your Country. He was a 
foreigner who used to work with Mekon Associates Company in London.

On the 2nd of August 2003, my client, his wife and their three 
children were involved in a car accident along Manchester Express 
Road. 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, 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 have contacted 
you to assist me in repatriating the money left behind by my client 
before they got confiscated or declared unserviceable by the 
HALIFAX BANK where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, 
the Halifax Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about 
US$7.3M 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 
nine (9) months now, I seek your consent to present you as the next 
of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued 
at US$7.3M can be paid to you and then you and I can share the 
money; 60% to me and 35% to you, while 5% should be for expenses or 
tax as your government may require, I have all necessary legal 
documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make, all I 
require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this 
transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a 
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the 

Immediately you acknowledge the good receipt of this message.
Anticipating your prompt response.

Yours Sincerely,
