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 information. 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 Christain Bell,a legal 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 efforts to locate the possible next of
kin proved abortive. Untill his sudden demise, He was not married and was
44years old.

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.

If you are interested to work with me in this deal then kindly reply
strictly with your personal Telephone /fax number for effective
communication and oral clarification on how to proceed next.

Sincerely yours,

Mr.Christain Bell
