I am Mr.Luke Robertson, Director of the Auditing and Accounting Department ,Foreign Operations 
Department of a financial institution I work in. I have an urgent and confidential business 
proposal for you. On June 6, 1999, an American oil consultant/contractor with (N N P C) Mr. William 
Barnes made a 12 months numbered time (fixed) deposit worth US$ (Thirty Million 
United State Dollars) with my bank. 

This deposit was to secure the American contractor's bid for the job of constructing a pipeline 
from Nigeria to the Republic of Ghana to supply oil and gas around the West African Sub Region. On 
maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarded address but got no reply. After months we 
sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employee (N N P C) that Mr. William 
Barnes was involved in a plane crash with Egyptian Airline 990 as you can see from the website 

I therefore made some investigations and discovered that Late Mr. William Barnes did not declare 
any next of kin or relations in all his official documents including his deposit document in my 
bank. The total sum of US$30,000,000.00 is still in my bank as dormant account. No one will ever 
come forward to claim it, for according to our banking law, after 7 (SEVEN) years, the money will 
revert to the ownership of the Government . If the account owner is certified death and nobody 
comes forward to claim it. 

This is the situation, and my proposal is that I am asking for your assistance to stand in is the 
beneficiary to Late Mr. William Barnes, for us to transfer the money. All you have to do is agree 
to work with me in this transfer . The money will be transferred into your designated account. 
After the transfer, I will visit your country for disbursement in the ratio of 30% (Thirty percent) 
for you, 10% (Ten percent) will be used to cover any contingency expense,10% (Ten percent) will be 
donated to charity,the rest will be for me. You do not need to worry, its 100% risk free and I 
guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate Arrangement that will protect you from any 
breach of the Law.

I will use my position and connection in the bank here to do all the documentation work for the 
transaction. This transaction is 100% risk free guaranteed. If you are interested, please reply 
confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction could be most profitable for both of us. 
This transaction requires utmost confidentiality and secrecy. I will require 

that you send to me your.
