I want to use this media to introduce my humble self to you. I am a legal
practitioner based in Nigeria here in Africa. I had a client who was a
foreigner and had been in my country for a couple of years working as an Oil

About this time 5 years ago he was diagnosed to have a terminal disease which
finally claimed his life but before his death he made a deposit of $25M in a
Finance Security House. He left a standing order with the company that only
his counsel should determine how the fund will be disbursed. It is unfortunate
that he finally lost his life to the terminal
disease in January 2012.

When he passed on i contacted the Finance house about his death and asked them
to give me about a year to get back to them. The unfortunate thing about this
my late client is that he had no child any where in the world and he did not
indicate any Next of Kin either. It is based on this fact you now know that i
have decided to contact you and have you presented as the new benefactor of
the fund.

I have decided we'll disburse this fund for charity purpose and if you are
ready to carry out this project with me then get back through this email ID:
( for further details.

I await your prompt response.
Kelly Gilbert.
