Attached Message
I am Mr. Tom bello , Bank Manager of Owena bank plc, Lagos Branch. I got your contact from the 
world trade center (WTC) 

Regional office in Lagos, Nigeria .Although the details of my intention was not made known to them 
.Actually, I listed your 

name amongst four other names & prayed over them & decided to contact you directly. I have a very 
urgent & confidential 

business proposition for you & for our overall mutual interest.

On June 6 2003,an American oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum 
Corporation Mr. Barry Kelly made a 

numbered time(fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at USD$25,000,000.00(twenty-five 
million dollars) in my 


Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarded address but got no reply. After a 
month we sent a reminder,& 

finally we discovered from his contract employers NNPC, that Mr. Barry died in an automobile 
accident. On further 

investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL & all attempts to trace his next of kin 
were fruitless. I therefore 

made further investigation & discovered that Mr. Barry did not declare any next of kin in all his 
official documents, 

including his bank deposit paperwork.

This sum USD$25,000,000.00 is still floating in the bank and the interest is being rolled over with 
the principal sum at the 

end of each year. No one will come forward to claim it.

According to Nigerian Laws, At the expiration of 7 years, the money will revert to the ownership of 
the Nigerian government 

if nobody applies to claim the funds. Consequently, my proposal is that i will like you as a 
foreigner to stand in as a next 

of kin of Mr. Barry Kelly. This is simple,

(1)I will like you to provide me immediately with your full names & address so that the attorney 
will prepare the necessary 

documents & affidavits, which will put you as next of kin.

(2)We shall employ the services of two attorneys for drafting & notarization of the WILL and obtain 
the necessary documents 

and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer.

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for 
you. There is no risk at all 

as the attorney and my position will do the paperwork for this transaction as the branch manager 
guarantees the successful 

execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via this private 

address.(  ) Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and 
relevant documents that 

will help you understand.

PLEASE OBSERVE UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY, and be rest assured that this would be most profitable for 
both of us because i shall 

require your assistance to invest my share in your country. Awaiting your urgent reply via this 
email above, please save me 

the anxiety of endless waiting.

God bless you.
Mr. Tom bello
Owena bank plc.
