Attn: Sir/Madam.

My Name is Barrister Ken Ubah(SAN), a Solicitor. I am the
Personal Attorney to mrs. Ann Parker, a national of your
country. I have an urgent and very confidential business
proposal for you.On December 18, 1999, an American Oil
consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation, Mrs. Ann Parker. made a numbered time
(Fixed)Deposit for twelvecalendar months, valued at US$14.
600, 000.00(Fourteen Million, Six Hundred thousand Dollars)
in a bank. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to
her forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, I
sent a reminder and finally i discovered from her contract
employers, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation that
Mrs. AnnParker. died from a ghastly automobile accident.

On further investigation, I found out that she died without
making a WILL, and all attempts to trace her next of kin was
fruitless/avail.I therefore made further investigation and
discovered that Mrs. Ann Parker. did not declare any next of
kin or relations in all her official documents,including her
Bank Deposit paper work in her Bank. This sum of US$14.600, 
000.00 is still sitting in her Bank and the interest is
being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each
year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According
to Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 7 (Seven) years, the
money will revert to the ownership of the Nigerian
Government if nobody applies to claim this fund
Consequently, My proposal is that I will like you as a
Foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mrs.Ann Parker.
so that the fruits of this woman's labour will not get into
the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is
simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full
names and address,your Telephone and fax number, Your age,
marital Status,sex and occupation so that the Attorney will
prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will
put you in place as the next of kin.

I will drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain
the necessary documents and letter of probate/
administration in your favour for the transfer. I would need
you as a Foreigner acting as the next of kin and sole
benefactor to the inheritance of Mrs. Ann Parker. to travel
and claim this money in a SECURITY COMPANY based in Europe
which is used by her bank as an offshore payment center to
the bank. The money will be paid to you for us to share in
the ratio of 50% for me and 40% for you then 10% for any
expensee that may come up. There is no risk at all as all
the paper work for this transaction will be done by me with
my position as Attorney guarantees the successful execution
of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply

details and relevant documents that will help you understand
the transaction. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and
be rest assured that this transaction would be most
profitable for both of us because I shall require your

waiting for your quick response.Thanks
