Dear Friend.

Good Day.

It is indeed my pleasure to write you this letter, which I believe will be a surprise to you as we 
have never met before, and I am deeply sorry if I have in any manner disturbed your privacy. Please 
forgive this unusual manner of contacting you, but this particular letter is of exceptional and 
very private nature. There is absolutely going to be a great doubt and distrust in your heart in 
respect of this email, coupled with the fact that, so many individuals have taken possession of the 
Internet to facilitate their nefarious deeds, thereby making it extremely difficult for genuine and 
legitimate business class persons to get attention and recognition.

My name is Dr. Brian D. Vannoy, I am Account Manager of Citi Bank of Africa (Nigerian Branch). I 
contacted you on a business Transfer that requires confidentiality, Trust and transparency,where 
both of us have a lot to Benefit. During our auditing Accounts section, I discovered a huge sum of 
money US$20.5M, (Twenty Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars, deposited by our late 
customer, a foreigner who died On the 21st of April 2000, Engr. Harold Bowen, his wife and their 
two Children were involved in a car accident in a remote village called Kuru near Jos in Plateau 
State. All occupants of the car Unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several 
enquiries to his embassy here in Lagos-Nigeria to locate any of Harold Bowen Extended relatives, 
this has also proved unsuccessful to locate any member of his family. 

Now the management of the bank has issued a notice to provide the next of kin to claim the funds or 
they have the account frozen. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 9 
years now, I contacted you to seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased 
since you are a foreigner so that the proceeds of this
account valued at US$20.5M, can be transfer to your account that you would provided, then we can 
share the money 50%/ for me and 50% for you because I am not a greedy person and is a deal between 
me and you! I know very well that you might be weary of the fact that you are not in any way 
related to the deceased man but according to the laws of inheritance in Nigeria, one must not be a 
relative to the deceased in order to be able to apply for inheritance, having taken note of this 
laws I have decided to present you to my bank as a business associate to Engr. Harold Bowen, which 
you know that somebody's business associate can come from any part of the world so it doesn't 
matter your nationality.

Finally, I have made an arrangement with an attorney who will work on your behalf and secure all 
the necessary legal documentation that would indicate you as the Beneficiary of the fund to back up 
this claim, and this I must do to make sure that this fund is not wasted or end up in the wrong 
hands. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us sees this deal through and secures 
all the legal documents. I guarantee you that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate 
arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law. 

If you are interested in this deal, kindly get back to me with your complete information, as 
follow. Your Private telephone and Fax numbers, and Cell phone; Your full Name
and Address.
