Dear Waugh,

I am Barrister Rotimi Williams, a solicitor at law and the personal attorney to Mr. Harisson Waugh, a national of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Oil and Gas Company in Nigeria as their financial controller, herein shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2000, my client, his wife and their two children were involved in a car accident along Sagbama express road , Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my client's extended relatives; this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you over the Internet as a fellow national to my late client to help me locate any member of his family there in your country, hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confisicated or declared
unserviceable by the Security Company where this huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the Security Company where the deceased had an account valued at 17.5million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next fourteen official working days. Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 2 years now I seek your consent to present you to the the Security Company as the next of kin to my late client since I have the maximum chance to do it so that the proceeds of this account valued at 17.5Million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money 60% to me and 40% to you. I have all the neccessary 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 transaction through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from any breach of the law .
Please contact me as soon as possible through the above e- mail address , enclosing also your telephone/fax number for further clarifications.

Best regards,

Barrister Rotimi Williams .

Put 'Nigerian scam' in google. This one is similar to Jesters click here, but there's loads.

I think the British police have a site to report these emails, can't find it at the moment.
