Mr. Jeff Obio
No, 5, Idowu Taylor Street.

Attention: Sir/Madam,

Compliment of the Day.

It is my humble pleasure to write you this letter irrespective of the fact that you do not know me. 
However, I came across your contact in my private search for a reliable and trustworthy person that 
can handle a confidential transaction valued {US$10,000,000.00(Ten Million Dollars}

I am assuring you a 100% risk free involvement in this transaction. The aforementioned funds 
totaling $10 Million are presently in a domiciliary account here in our bank, and it belongs to one 
of our dead foreign client who died Eight years ago in a ghastly air crash. 

I am the account officer of the late customer here in the branch  and I was instructed by the board 
of bank that I should close the account of the deceased client due to the fact that the account has 
been dormant for the past 8 Years that he died. Also, I was 
instructed by the board of our bank that I should contact his Next of Kin to inherit the funds left 
in the account. I have made several frantic inquiries at the Embassy, to locate any of his 
relatives or next of kin who will inherit the funds but unfortunately I learn that he died along 
with his wife and his only child in the air crash. 

You see, if I should tell the boards of our bank that the deceased client does not have a Next of 
Kin to inherit the funds, they will confiscate the funds automatically. So, I decided to search for 
a foreigner whom I could present as the next of kin to the deceased client or even comes from the 
same country with him, and hence I contacted you. 

A routine notification has been sent several times to him,without reply. Couple of months later, I 
discovered from his contract employers, the Nigerian National  Steel Corporation Ajuokuta  that 
he's dead. He died in an air crash .On further investigation to the deposit with my Bank, no 
declaration of inheritance to relation or next of kin to inherit this fund.

Unfortunately, none of his relation or family has ever come forth for this claim, and the 
management of the firm is planning to confiscate the {US$10, 000,000.00(Ten Million Dollars} by the 
end of this fiscal quarter,since it has overstayed the deposited time.

As regards to the above, I want you to stand in as the next of Kin to the deceased {even a distance 
relation does not matter} for us to save the fruits of the old man's labour before it get to the 
hands of some corrupt selfish officials of our firm or the government.

As soon as you consent to this request, we will immediately employ the service of an Attorney for 
drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of 
probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. Your percentage share of the fund depends on 
your level of participation. Although I would  like to use 20% of the total fund to raise a 
reputable charity home or Foundation in the name of the deceased.

My position here as the account officer guarantees the successful execution of this transaction as 
there is every arrangement to effect the payment of the $10,000.000.00}to you as the next of Kin  
as soon as we {you and I} certify the requirement of our firm.

Looking forward to your urgent response to this offer. Please reply through this Alternative or


Mr.Jeff Obio
