ATTN Sir/Madam

It is obvious that this Proposal will come to you as a suprise.This is 
because we have not met before but i am Inspired to sending you this email 
by the huge fund transfer opportunity that will be of mutual benefit to the 
two of us.However,I am Peterson Okolie the personal Attorney to the late 
Engr.Steve Moore a national of Isle of Man in UK,who used to work with Shell 
petroleum development Company(SPDC) in Nigeria.On the 21st of April 2002,my 
client,his wife And their three children were involved in a car accident 
along sagamu/Lagos Express Road.Unfortunately they all lost their lives in 
the event of the accident, Since then I have made several enquiries to 
several Embassies to locate any of my clients 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 contacted you to assist in repartrating the money and property left behind 
by my client,I can easily convince the bank with my legal practice that you 
are the only surviving relation of my client.Otherwise the Estate he left 
behind will be confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this 
huge deposits were lodged.Particularly,the Bank where the deceased had an 
account valued at about  $27million U.S dollars (twenty seven million 
U.S.America dollars).Conseqently,The bank 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 unsuccesfull in locating the the relatives 
for over several years now.I seek your consent to present you as the next of 
kin of the deceased,so that the proceeds of this account valu ed at 
$27million U.S dollars can be paid to your account and then you and me can 
share the money.55% to me and 40 % 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 
cooperation to enable us see this deal through.

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that 
will protect you from any breach of the law.Please get in touch with me by 
my email to enable us discuss further.please get back to me through this 

Yours Faithfully,
Barrister Peterson Okolie
