Dear Sir/Ma

I am Mr.Tom Bello,Bank Manager of Owena bank ltd,Lagos Branch.I got your 
contact from the world trade center (WTC) Regional office in 
lagos,Nigeria.Although the details of my intention was not made known to 
them.Actually,I listed your name amongst four other names & prayed overthem 
& decided tocontact you directly.I have a very urgent & 
confidentialbussiness proposition for you & for our overall mutual interest.

On june 6 1997,an American oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian 
National Petroleum Corporation Mr Barry Kelly made a numbered time(fixed) 
deposit for twelve calendar months,valued at USD$25,000,000.00(twentyfive 
million dollars) in my branch.Upon maturity,i sent a routinenotification to 
his forwarded address but got no reply.After a month we senta reminder,& 
finally we discovered from his contract employers NNPC,that Mr.Barry died in 
an automobile accident.On further investigation,i found out that he did not 
leave a WILL & all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless.I 
therefore made further investigation & discovered that Mr.Barry did not 
declare any next of kin in all his official documents,including his bank 
deposit paperwork.

This sum USD$25,000,000.00 is still floating in the bank and the interest is 
being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.No one will 
come forward to claim it.

According to Nigerian Laws, At the expiration of 7 years,the money 
willrevert to the ownership of the Nigerian government if nobody applies to 
claim the funds. Consequently,my proposal is that i will like you as a 
foreigner to stand in as a next of kin of Mr Barry Kelly.This is simple,

(1)I will like you to provide me immediately with your full names & address 
so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents & affidavits,which 
will put you as next of kin.

(2)We shall employ the services of two attorneys for drafting & notarization 
of the WILL and obtain the necessary documents and letter of 
probate/administration in your favour for the transfer.

(3)A bank account in any part of the world,which you will provide to 
facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary.

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% 
for me and 40% for you. There is no risk at all as the attorney and my 
position will do the paperwork for this transaction as the branch manager 
guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.If you are 
interested,please reply immediately via this private email address. Upon 
your response,I shall then provide you with more details and 
relevantdocuments that will help you understand.

PLEASE OBSERVE UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY,and be rest assured that this would be 
most profitable for both of us because i shall require your assistance to 
invest my share in your country. Awaiting yoururgent replyvia this email 
above,please save me the anxiety of endless


God bless you.

Mr.Tom Bello
Owena bank ltd.
