Dear friend,

It is obvious that this proposal will come to you as a surprise.However, I
am Barrister Uba Tony,the personal Attorney to the late Engr.Steve Moore a
national of your country who used to work with Shell Development
Company(SDC) in Nigeria.On the 21st of April 2001, 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 but of no
avail hence I contacted you.

I contacted you to assist in retrieving 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 $14.7 million U.S dollars(Fourteen Million and
Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) Conseqently,the bank issued
me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account onfiscated
within the
next ten official working days.

since i have been unsuccesfull in locating 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 valued at $14.7 M
USD(Fourteen Million and Seven Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars can be paid to your account and then you and I can share the money.
55%to me and 40% to ou,while 5% should be for expenses or tax as your
government may equire.

This information such as stated below are required from you:

1.your full name
2.Resident Address

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
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the
law.Please get
