 Dear Partner
 Good day, firstly, I apologize for sending you this sensitive information via e-mail instead of a 
Certified mail/Post-mail. This is due to the urgency and importance of the nformation. I humbly 
crave your indulgence to read this e-mail with all seriousness of purpose because this project is 
based on Trust,confidentiality and sincerity of purpose in order to have an acceptable meeting of 
the minds. I am a fifty two(52)years old established lawyer. My name is Mr. Christain Bell,a 
solicitor and personal attorney to an expatriate and a consultant with an American Oil 
company,PENNZOIL (Now deceased) He died in the Tsunami disaster on 26th december 2004 while on 
vacation in Thailand.Six years ago, My Client successfully executed a contract for the Federal 
Government of Nigerian {FGN} worth US$18.3 million dollars. A part payment of USD9.million dollars 
was paid to my client, while the balance of USD9.3 million Dollars was still unpaid before my 
client died in the Indian Ocean Tsunami disaster. However,all my effo

NOW THE CRUX OF THIS E-LETTER is that the new elected Government Of Nigerian is fully paying all 
foreign Contractors who have successfully executed their contracts and my client is among those 
benefited in this first quarter payment schedule which has already been deposited in his bank. As 
his personal attorney/Adviser, his bank has officially notified and instructed me to forward 
particulars of my client's next of kin within the next 14 official working days so that he/she can 
be paid the outstanding USD9.3 Million dollars otherwise his payment will be diverted to the 
government coffers account as uncliamed bill.Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any of his 
relatives, I decided to contact you for a deal so that we can work together as a team to remit the 
money to your account as my client next of kin since I do not want to seat and watch my client hard 
earned entittlement to go astray,it will be easy for us to achieve because you are of the same name
and country like him. Although I know that a transaction of this magnitude might make anyone 
apprehensive but I would like to assure you that I am proposing this project to you with the best 
of intensions. As a lawyer, I have the power to secure all the necessary legal documents that will 
be used for this claim. All I require from you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this 
deal through. I guarantee that this transaction will be executed under a Legitimate banking 
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. Upon successful conclusion of this 
project,you will be compensated with 40%
of the total fund,while 60% will be for me.

I await your urgent reply with your personal telephone/fax number for effective communication and 
oral clarification on how to proceed next.

Sincerely yours,

Mr.Christain Bell
