From: Barrister Michael Woodgate -


Your e-mail address came up in a random draw conducted by our law
firm,(Woodgate & Co Chambers,) Lagos, Nigeria.

I am Barrister Michael Woodgate, the Legal Adviser and counsel to a
deceased expatriate contractor who used to work with Marathon Oil and Gas
Company here in UK thereafter shall be referred as my late client. On the
December 26th 2003, my client and his entire family died in a plane crash
in coition, Benin Republic.

He was a well known philanthropist before he died, he made a Will stating
that $9.2m(Nine Million Two Hundred Thousand Pounds Only) should be
donated to any Philanthropist of our choice overseas. We have made a
random draw where your e-mail address was picked as the beneficiary to
this Will.

I am particularly interested in securing this money from the BANK, because
they have issued a notice instructing us to produce the beneficiary of
this Will within two weeks or else the money will be credited to the
Government treasury as per law here.

It is my utmost desire to execute the Will of our late client in your
favor and therefore, you are required to contact me immediately to start
the process of sending this money to any or your designated official
account. I urge you to contact me immediately for further details bearing
in mind that the bank has given us a date limit.

Please act fast and reply me via email
