Good Day Dear Friend,

I need you to receive US$16,800,000.00 for us to share. My name is Dr. Peter John, Regional 
Manager, UBA Bank, Nigeria. 
Mr. William Brown from your country made a fixed deposit of US$16,800,000.00 with our bank in 2005. 
Two years later I got news that he died in Germany.
The fixed deposit agreement expired last December 2008. No relative or next of kin to Late Mr. 
William Brown has come forward to claim this money. It is my duty to trace the next of kin of Late 
Mr. William Brown and present him/her for payment.
I want you to step in as the next of kin to Late Mr. William Brown so that this money will be wire 
to your account for our sharing. You will have 40% of the total amount while the remaining 60% will 
be for me.
Please know that this arrangement is risk free and will not take more than 7 working days to 
complete. Respond urgently.

Dr. Peter John
