Victoria Island Lagos.

Dear Friend,

My name is Mr. John Gelsthorp. I am the accountant of the First Inland Bank Victoria Island Lagos. 
I am a Nigerian married with two kids.

I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of US$3,800,000.00 (Three Million, 
Eight Hundred Thousand US Dollars). This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the 
accountant made as profit during the last year. I have already submitted an approved end of the 
last year report for the year 2008 and also submitted report of first quarter of this year 2008 to 
my Head Office here in Lagos and they will never know of this Excess. I have since then, placed 
this amount of US$3,800,000.00 (Three Million, Eight Hundred Thousand Us Dollars) on a SUSPENCE 
ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to 
request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part with 30% 
of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no 
risk involved in this. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account 
anywhere you feel safer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response. You can contact me via my private 
email address: You can also contact me on my private phone number: 

Best regards,

Mr. John Gelsthorp
