African Development Bank(ADP)
Lagos - Nigeria.

I am contacting you on business transfer of a huge sum
of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a
transaction of this magnitude will make anyone
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that
all will be well at the end of the day. We decided to
contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.

We discovered an abandoned sum of US$30,000,000.00
(thirty million united states dollars) in an account
that belongs to one of our foreign customers by name
Salah Adam, Toronto who died along with his entire family
in the plane crash of 31 October, 1999 on board the
Egyptian Airline 990 alonside other passengers.

Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations
has come forward to lay claims to this money as the
heir. We cannot release the fund from his account
unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to
the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

Upon this discovery, we now seek your permission to
have you stand as next of kin to the deceased as all
documentations will be carefully worked out
by us for the funds(US$30,000,000.00) to be released in
your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin. It may
interest you to know that we have secured from the
probate an order of mandamus to locate any of deceased

Please acknowledge receipt of this message in
acceptance of our mutual business endeavour by
furnishing me with the following;

1. Beneficiary name and address
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers

These requirements will enable us file letter of claim
to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals
in your favour before the transfer can be made. We
shall be compensating you with a million dollars on
final conclusion of this project, while the rest shall
be for us for investment purposes.

If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take
undue advantage of the trust we have bestowed in you,
I await your urgent mail.

Mr. Hamza Martins.
