Dear Friend,

I am Barrister Nelson Donell , the Personal Attorney to a
Foreign Contractor,
who worked with a Multinational Oil Firm in Nigeria.On the
11th of September 2001, 
my client, a Mexican National, late Engineer Carlos
Montoya, an oil Merchant
Contractor with the Federal Government of Nigeria, until
his death 
some years ago in a ghastly terrorist attack to American
Airlines Flight 11, 
from Boston, Massachusetts, to Los Angeles,California,
crashed into the North 
Tower of the World Trade Centre with 86 people on board.
All occupants of the 
Aeroplane unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have
made several inquiries 
to Several Embassies to locate any of my clients extended
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, I have contacted you to assist me in
repatriating the money left
behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared
unserviceable by
the Bank where this huge deposits were lodged.
The Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about
has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have
the account 
confiscated within the next twenty official working days.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives
for some years 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
can be paid to you and then you and I can share this money.
70% to me 
and 25% to you,while 5% should be for expenses or tax as
your Government may 
require. All I require is your honest and 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 branch of the law. Please
get in touch with me 
via email as soon as you get this mail to enable us discuss
on the 
modalities and process for success of this transaction.

I will equally want you to send the following information 
to enable me move ahead for the transfer in your name.

1, Your Full Name 
2, Your contact address
3. Your private fax and telephone number.
4, The name and address of bank you wish we will use to
receive the fund successfully.
5, The account information for urgent transfer.

Do reply to my private email: {}
I await your kind response, Good day and God bless.
