Dear Friend,
I Am Mr. Leonard Clement the Manager, Bills And Exchange at the Foreign Remittance
Department in a Bank.  Actually, I have a very urgent & confidential Business Proposition
for you & for our overall mutual interest.On the 6th of March 2001, our Customer, an
American National,late .Douglas .J. Stone, an Oil Merchant / Contractor with the Federal
Government of Nigeria, deposited, a valued amount of US$32Million in my branch. 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 late Douglas .J..Stone ,until
his death six years ago in a ghastly terrorist attack to AmericanAirlines Flight 11, from
Boston, Massachusetts, to Los Angeles, California, crashed into the North Tower of the World
Trade Center (WTC) with 86 people on board. All occupants of the Aeroplane unfortunately
lost their lives. On further nvestigation, I found out that he did notleave a WILL and all
attempts to trace his Next of kin were ruitless. I therefore made further investigation and
discovered that late.Douglas .J. Stone, did not declare any Next of kin in all his official
documents.This sum US$32Million 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
7years, 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 late Douglas .J. Stone. This is simple. All I require is yourhonest and
co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I will want
you to send to me on your return email the following information for the transfer in your
1. Your full names as the Beneficiary of the Fund.
2. Your contact address.
3. Your private phone and fax numbers,
Let's consider that our ratio of sharing will be as stated Thus;
1. I as the Originator of the Fund will take 50% of the transferable Fund.
2. You as the Manager of the Fund will take 50% of the transferable Fund.
Most importantly, CONFIDENTAILITY as what I saw as the life wire to the success of the
transfer of this Fund must have to be emulated between you and me. You have to use this
media to promise me that you will not in anyway expose the content of this transaction to
anybody be it your Friends, Colleagues and Co-Workers.I will also want you to send your
reply to this email (
 ) as soon as you get this mail to enable us
discuss on the modalities and processes for success of this transaction. Thanks for your
anticipated cooperation and understanding.
I wait for your kind response.Thanks And Remain blessed.
