Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am a Solicitor and the Personal attorney to Mr. Wilcox, Alex, a
national the United States and Britain , who died in a Plane crash on
Monday 2nd September 1998 GMT 14:22 UK while they were flying from New
York to Geneva.

My client and his wife lost their lives on that plane crash Since then
i have made several enquiries to the embassy to locate any of my
clients extended relatives, this has proved unsuccessful. After
several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over
the internet, so as to locate any member of his family but to no
avail,not until i went to hisembassy in my Country where your contact
information was given to me, Hence i contacted you.

I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money that belonged
to my late client before they get confiscated or declared as
unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposit were lodged.
Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at
about $20.8 Million Dollars, has 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 unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over
fifteen years years now therefore, I have decided to seek your consent
to present you as the next of kin of the deceased, so that the
proceeds of this account valued at $20.8 Million Dollars, can be paid
to you and then you and me can share the money 50% to me and 45% to
you, while 5% will be mapped out for any expenses during the process
or tax as your government may require. I have the certificate of
deposit that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I
require is your honest cooperation to enable us see the 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 strictly via this email ( to enable us
discuss further.
Best regards,

Scott Obi
