Dear Friend,

I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail may cause you, as we have not met
before. I am Morris Williams, a solicitor at law, I am the personal attorney to
Engineer Frank Shaikh, a national of your country, who used to work with Shell
Development Company in Nigeria, hereinafter referred to as my client. On the
21st of April 1999, my client, his wife and their children were involved in a
car accident along Kano - Sokoto express Road while arriving from Easter
Holiday to Warri Delta State. 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 but this has proved unsuccessful.

I came across your name and contact, while I was searching for Frank's
relations. Since my search was unsuccessful, I decided to contact you for this
project. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money and properties
left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable
by the Bank here where these funds were deposited. Particularly, the total
amount is $12 Million United States Dollars, last year issued me a 12months
notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the fund confiscated, and this
ultimatum expires by next month.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years
now, I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased
since you have the nationality so that the proceed of this deposit of USD12
Million can be released to you and then you and I can share the money, 60% for
me 30% for you, and the remaining 10% will be for expenses and tax. He made the
money in one of the Oil deals he had with our Oil Minister. I also 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 business
through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement
that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Get back to me as soon as possible

Barrister Morris Williams.
Kind attention
