Good day,
I am Mr Tony Smith Offshore Investment Banking officer of Stanbic IBTC
Bank. Having consulted and based on the information gathered from the
Nigerian Chambers of Commerce And Industry, I have the privilege to
request your assistance in the transfer of USD$25,000,000.00(twenty five
million united states dollars) into your account.

On December 6 2000, an American oil consultant/contractor with the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC) Mr. Henry Gardner made a
numbered time(fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at
USD$25,000,000.00(Twenty Five million United Dollars) in my branch. Upon
Maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarded address but got
no reply. After a month, I personally sent a reminder still no response
from him but I later discovered from his contract employers NNPC that Mr.
Henry died in an automobile accident.

On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all
attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further
investigation and discovered that Mr. Henry 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 10(ten) 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 to Late Mr. Henry Gardner.

This is simple
1) I will like you to provide me immediately with your full names, address
and your phone number so that an attorney will prepare the necessary
documents and affidavits, which will put you as next of kin.

2) We shall employ the services of an attorney 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, which we will both sign and agree to, by a
Memorandum of Understanding (M.O.U) before we proceed with the transfer of
the money to you.There is no risk at all in this transaction, as the
attorney will do the paperwork for this transaction and with my position
as the branch manager guarantees the successful execution of this
transaction.Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details
and relevant documents that will help you understand.

confidentiality in all matters I have discussed with you be observed,
because it is only on this premise of reliability and implicit trust in
our capabilities, will the exact dividends of this proposal be achieved.

Privileged information and official Instruments at my disposal will enable
this proposal in the right perspective for a 100% successful execution
rate, it is therefore paramount for me to beassured of your discretion in
handling details of this proposal.

I also need an assurance that even though, the possibility exists of you
declining to this proposal, my identity can be protected with your assured
discretion. Please save me the anxiety of endless waiting by sending your
information to my private email address: (
God bless you as you do.
