I am Mr Femi Johnson Branch Accountant Nigbel Merchant Bank Plc,l know
this proposal will come to you as a surprise because we have not met
before either  physically or through correspondence , and I have no doubt
in your
ability to handle this proposal involving huge sum of money. On June 6,
1999, an America Oil consultant/contractor Late Mr. Charles Fredrick work
with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, made a numbered time
deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$15,000,000.00 (Fifteen
Million United States Dollars) in my branch upon maturity.
I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.

After a month,we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his
contract employers of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
informed us that Mr Charles Fredrick died in a Plane Crash on the 31st
October 1999 with other passengers aboard.

On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a
WILL,and attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore
made further investigation anddiscovered that late Mr. Charles Fredrick
did not declare any next-of-kin or relations in all his official
documents, including his bank deposit paperwork in my bank. This sum of
US$15,000,000.00 is still in my 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 Nigerian Government Property
if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently,my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand
as the next-of-kin to the Late Mr. Charles Fredrick so that the fruit
of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt
Government officials, and I shall employ the service of an Attorney for
the drafting and notarization of the WILL and obtain the necessary
documents and letter of probate/administration in your favour for the
transferof the fund in any bank account in any part of the world which you
will provide I will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as
the beneficiary/next-of-kin.

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in ratio of
60/40. There is no risk at all, the paperwork for this transaction will
be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees
the successful execution of this transaction.To enable us commence on the
transaction I will apreciate if you forward to me the following
information stated below:

1. Your full name.
2. Your contact address.
3. Your telephone and fax numbers.

Upon the receipt of this information I shall provide you with more 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 assitance to invest my share in your country.
Thanks for your anticipated assistance.Strictly reply via my email
address: OR call me immediately on my telephone
number; 234-808-326-5594 for detailed discussion.

Best Regards,
Mr Femi Johnson
Branch Accountant.
