Attention Dear Your Mail Urgent!! 
This letter is written to you based on contact information I came across on web while searching for 
investment options overseas. My name is Barrister Tony Novia; I am a lawyer to one Mr. Morris 
Thompson an American who died in the year 2000. Late Morris was a consultant in Chevron Petroleum 
Company here in Nigeria and has a Fixed Deposit of US$3,000,000.00 with United Bank for Africa 
{UBA} Plc to run for a period of 6 years from 1999 to 2005.  
As a matter of fact, Mr. Morris left Nigeria some years back and did not come back. I tried to 
locate him after several months only to discover that he was involved in the plane crash of Alaska 
Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on 31st January 2000 together with his wife and their daughter, 
visit the site below which I got during my investigation;      
My purpose of contacting you is that the fixed deposit has matured but no one to stand for the 
claim. The bank has mandated me as his lawyer to provide any of his relative to stand for the claim 
within two months since the depositor died with his wife whom he indicated as his next of kin in 
the crash. To this effect, I have decided to contact you to stand as Mr. Thompsonís next of kin in 
order to claim this money since it is obvious that the bank did not know any of his relative. If 
you accept to stand for this inheritance, I am willing to split the funds into two parts, for each 
of us having an equal share.
There is no risk involved in this transaction, as I will give you all information about Mr. 
Thompson and his banking relationship with the bank to enable you stand for the claim. I shall come 
over to your country for my own share once this transaction is concluded. Please indicate your 
interest so we can proceed further. Thanks 
Barrister Tony Novia (Esq.)
