Calvary Greetings,

can i have your attention for a moment? I hope this mail doesn't come 
to you as an embarrassment as i receive unsolicited mails sometimes. 
The truth about it is that many individuals have failed to understand 
the use for which the Internet is set for us to benefit, and therefore 
some abuse the privilege. 
     I am Mr.Olamide Wright a Banker. I was 
the account Officer to  Late Mr.Bart from your country,who used to work 
with Shell Oil Development Plc.On the 27th of February 2003 my client 
late Engr. bart and his wife and two children were involved in the 
Lagos Ikeja military cantonment Bomb Blast which Engr.Bart was killed 
along with his family and his friend Colonel Buba Maruwa the then 
Governor of Lagos State which they both lost their lives.
  Since then I have made several 
enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients  extended 
relatives, this  has also proved unsuccessful.After these several 
unsuccessful  attempts, I decided to track his Desendant on the 
internet to locate any member of his  family hence I contacted you. 
I have contacted you to assist in repatriating his account before they 
get confiscated or  declared unserviceable by my Bank where i was his 
account officer.For now i do not want to disclose The Bank for security 
reasons because of this huge deposit. 
   Particularly where the 
deceased had an account valued at about US$35   Million US Dollars.My 
Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the 
account confiscated  within the 6 weeks. Since I have been unsuccessful 
in locating the relatives for over 4 years now, I seek your   consent 
to present you as the next of kin of the deceased because you have the 
same last name, so that  the proceeds of this account valued at 
US$35Million Dollars can be paid to you and then you and I can share 
and i will like to invest mine in your Country when i come down for 
sharing. 50% to me 40% to you. 
 All I require is your honest co-
operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this 
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you 
and i from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me 
immediately with the following information stated  below, as I do not 
have much time in my disposal. 
 1, Your full name and address. 
Your place and date of birth. 
 3. Your occupation. 
 4. Your direct 
telephone/fax number. 
 I will await your soonest reply in my private 
 Best Regards, 
 Mr.Olamide Wright.
