Mr. Odili Williams
Lagos - Nigeria.

Dear Sir,

Courtesy of Business opportunity, I take liberty anchored on strong desire
to solicit for your assistance on this mutual beneficial and risk free
transaction with you, which I hope you give urgent attention. To be
precise, I am Mr. Odili Williams the Manager of Bills/Exchange at the
Foreign Exchange/Remittance Department of UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC. In my
department, we discovered an abandoned sum of US$12,524,000.00 (Twelve
Million, Five Hundred and Twenty Four Thousand United States Dollars) in an
account that belongs to one of our customers who died along with his entire
family in 1988 Lockerbie Pan American Airline plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next
of Kin to come over and claim his money, because we can not release it
unless somebody applied for its next of Kin or Relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking procedure, but unfortunately to no avail, and
nobody has come forward to claim the money (because the mentioned next of
kin which is Son died as well).

Therefore, upon this discovery I and other two officials in my department
now decide to establish a cordial business relationship with you, hence my
contacting you. We want you to purportedly present your good self as the
next of Kin or relation of the deceased so that we can prepare
documentations and release the funds (US$12.524 Million) into your account
for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and
again we do not want the funds to go into the Governments account as
"Unclaimed Bill".

The banking law and procedures herein stipulates that any account abandoned
or dormant for a period of some years is subjected to be closed and all
money contained therein will be forfeited to the Government Treasury
Account. Now it is being speculated that the above sum will be transferred
into Government Treasury Account as unclaimed funds on or before November
2003. The reason for you to present your good self as the next of kin in
occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner.

Mode of sharing after the successful completion of the transfer is as
follows, for the role you will be expected to play in the whole exercise,
we have agreed to give you twenty five (25%) of the total sum, and 5% has
been set aside for expenses we are going to encounter by both parties in
the process of this transaction and the remaining 70% shall be for my
colleagues and I. In support of the aforementioned, you are urged to reply
this letter indicating your readiness and interest to participate in the
business. After you reply, you will be advised on the next step forward.

I quite believe that you will protect our interest by keeping this business
Top Secret and Confidential, as your interest will be equally protected in
order to achieve and maintain maximum confidentiality. Trust to hear from
you on the above Email address: odili_williams77@keromail.com in the letter
as I count on your earliest response.

Yours truly,

Mr. Odili Williams.
