Good Day,

With due esteem respect please I beg your pardon for
this unsolicited nature, it was out of desperation and
curiosity that made me to contact you.

To introduce myself, I am Mr. Kenneth Bello, I am the
personal accountant to Mr. John Cooper, a national of
your country, who used to work with one of the Biggest
Oil Servicing Company here in Nigeria, herein shall be
referred as my customer.

On the Thursday July 7, 2005 3:01 PM, my customer, his
wife {Lady Juliet and their two children {Rose and
Dan} were involved in a Three blasts rocked the London
subway and one tore open a packed double-decker bus
during the morning rush hour Thursday when they went
for vaction, sending bloodied victims fleeing in what
a shaken Prime Minister Tony Blair called "barbaric"
terrorist attacks. A U.S. law enforcement official
said at least 40 people were killed and London
hospitals reported more than 300 injured,
unfortunately, him and his family were victims that
lost their lives. You can view this page for more

Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any
of my customer, extended relatives, this has also
proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided
to track his last name over the Internet, to locate
any member of his family or any close name to his,
hence I contacted you. I am contacting you to assist
in repatriating the money and property left behind by
my client before they get liquidate or declare it
unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposits
were lodged, union Bank of Nigeria, where the deceased
had his account valued precisely to be USD$15M
(Fifteen Million United States Dollars).

The bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of
kin or have the account liquidated within the next
twenty one official working days.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to
stand in as the next of kin to, so that the fruits of
this old man's labor will not get into the hands of
some group of corrupt government officials who will
get rid of the money and share it for their own
selfish interest and greed.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the
relatives for over 3 weeks now, I seek your prompt
consent to present you as the next of kin of the
deceased since no body is coming for the funds so that the
proceeds of this account valued at USD$15M can be paid
to you and then you and I can share the money
according to any agreed ratio.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us
see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be
executed under legitimate arrangement that will
protect you from any breach of the law.

Looking forward to your response in this my private
email address:

Truly yours,

Mr. Kenneth Bello
