I sincerely apologize for intruding into your privacy, especially by contacting you through this 
means for a business transaction of this magnitude, but due to its seriousness and urgency it 
therefore became necessary for me to seek for your assistance.

A random draw conducted by our law firm, (Friggs & Co Chambers,) in Lagos,Nigeria and Your name and 
e-mail address was selected. I am Barrister Greg Friggs, the Legal Adviser and counsel to a 
deceased expatriate contractor (Mr. Philip) who used to work with Zenith Oil and Gas Company here 
in Nigeria thereafter shall be referred as my late client. On the December 26th 2003, my client and 
his entire family died in a plane crash in cotonou, Benin Republic. You will read more stories 
about the crash on visiting this website:

He was a well known philanthropist before he died, he made a Will stating that $4.5m(Four Million 
Five Hundred Thousand USA Dollars Only) should be donated to any Philanthropist of our choice 
overseas.We have made a random draw where your name and e-mail address was picked as the 
beneficiary to this Will.

I am particularly interested in securing this money from the bank,because they have issued a notice 
instructing us to produce the beneficiary of this Will within two weeks or else the money will be 
credited to the Government treasury as per law here. 

It is my utmost desire to execute the Will of our late client (Mr.Philip) in your favour and 
therefore, you are required to contact me immediately to start the process of sending this money to 
any or your designated official account.
