 Dear Friend,

 I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail might cause you,as we have not
 met before. I am Barrister Eke Luke,a solicitor at law, I am the
 personal attorney to Engineer Jason, a national of your Country, who used
 to work with Mobil oil Nigeria plc.Hereinafter shall be referred to as my

 On the 21st of April 2005, my client, his wife and their only child 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 locate any of my clients extended relatives but this has been
 unsuccessful. I came across your name and contact, while I was searching for his
 relations via the internet, since my search did not yield the desired
 result, I had to contact you for this project.

 I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my
 client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the
 Bank where these funds were deposited. The Bank where
 the deceased has an account valued US$10.3 Million Dollars, last year
 issued me a 12 months notice to provide the Next of Kin or have the
 fund/consignment 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 same last name so that the proceed of this
 deposit valued at US$10.3 Million Dollars can be released to you and then
 you and I can share the money, 60% for me 40% for you, and the remaining
 10% will be for expenses  that may be incurred during the course of
 this transaction.

 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. Please, note
 that this business is risk free and my only worry is the safety of this
 money once it gets into your account.

 I believe that it is (GOD) who joined us together in view of this
 transaction, and I also pray that (GOD) gives us the spirit of being
 honest to ourselves for the success of this transaction. I wait for your
 urgent response. 

 Sincerely yours,
