Dear Sir or Madam:
I am Duka Dawodu, and I hope my business proposal will be a pleasant surprise to
you,as we have had no prior business relationship. I am from Monrovia, Liberia
in Africa. I am sixty-five years old and a Vice President in a major bank in
Monrovia where I stumbled on this remarkable discovery I am about to share with
you.On November 6, 2004, a Canadian Oil consultant/contractor with the Liberian
National Petroleum Corporation (LNPC), Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered time
(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$125,000,000.00 (One
hundred and twenty- five Million Dollars) in my bank.

Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got
no reply. Several periodic reminders were sent but to no avail and finally we
discovered from his contract employers, the Liberian National Petroleum
Corporation that Mr. Barry Kelly died from an automobile accident. Further
investigation revealed that Late Barry Kelly declared no next of kin on his
sworn affidavits with the bank records. This sum of US$125,000,000.00 is still
in my bank deposit accumulating interest yet unclaimed till date. According to
Laws of Liberia, the government could confiscate this money if unclaimed for
another two years.

I am therefore, most humbly and discreetly seeking a reliable, honest and
trustworthy foreign associate and friend to help take delivery and secure these
funds on my behalf, with the intention of investing in a possible profitable
business in your country under your directive and supervision of my Personal
Assistant Mr. Dave Johnson. Rather than having it seized by the authorities,
and put towards their selfish, corrupt inhuman and oppressive goals. My family
and I wish and intend to relocate to your country afterwards and so, I am
requesting your help in buying two homes in which we shall live in your
country. The details of these and the manner these resources shall be
transferred from my bank to your bank account which you shall provide, would be
discussed during your meeting with my personal assistant Mr. Dave Johnson or our
follow-up dialogue prior to commencing of the project.

Please realize that I cannot divulge too much at this stage as it could
compromise my identity and my goal. Upon your reply I shall make available to
you more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the

I strongly appeal you observe utmost confidentiality.

Please get back to me with this email(

Best Regards,
Mr Duka Dawodu.
