Dear Friend,

 I am Mr.Tom Bello,Bank Manager of Owena bank ltd,Lagos branch.I got your contact from the world 
trade center (WTC) Regional office in lagos,Nigeria.Although the details of my intention was not 
made known to them. Actually,I listed your name amongst four other
namesand prayed over themand decided to contact you directly. I have a very urgent and 
confidential bussiness proposal for youand for our overall mutual interest. On june 6 1997,an 
American oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Mr Barry Kelly 
made a numbered time(fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months valued at USD$5,000,000.00( five 
million dollars) 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 and finally we discovered from his contract 
employers NNPC that Mr Barry died in an automobile accident. On further investigation,i found out 
that he did not leave a WILL & all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore 
made further investigation and i discovered that Mr Barry did not declare any next of kin in all 
his official documents including his bank deposit paperwork.

 This sum USD$5,000,000.00 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 sevenyears,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 Mr Barry Kelly.

 This is simple,
(1) I will like you to provide me immediately with your full names,house address and your private 
telephone number so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and
affidavits which will put you as next of kin.
(2) We shall employ the services of two attorneys for draftingand notification of the WILL and 
obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favour 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. There is no risk at all as the attorney and my position will do the paperwork for this 
transaction as the branch manager i guarantee the successful execution
of this transaction. If you are interested please reply immediately via this private email 
address. Upon your response,I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that 
will help you understand.

PLEASE OBSERVE UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY,and be rest assured that this would be most profitable for 
both of us because i shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. 
 Awaiting for your urgent reply. Please save me the anxiety of endlesswaiting. God bless you.

Mr.Tom Bello.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
