Dear Friend, hope this e-mail wouldn't come to you as a surprise. Having gone through your profile, I am convinced and pleased to solicit your sincere and urgent assistance over this matter. I am Barrister John Dike,Attorney to one late.Mr Michael Forest a local contractor with the Lagos State Government of Nigeria. My client Late was awarded a contract worth of Forty-Five Million United States Dollars (45,000,000:00USD) by the Lagos state Government of Nigeria for the maintenance and construction of roads in the states in 2003 and the contract was fully executed by my late client. My client has been paid Fifteen Million United States Dollars from the contract and he was to receive the balance payment of the contract, but unfortunately my client was involved in a fatal auto accident with hisentire family on Sagamu Express Road where he eventually lost hislife and his two kids and wife. This was in 25th of December of 2003. Sequel to the death of late client, there is every need to present a next of kin to Lagos State Government so that they can release the balance of his contract money. Already the CONTRACTPAYMENT OFFICE under the Lagos State Government has contacted me that the balance payment for the executed contract, which has been approved for payment, is ready for collection. I am therefore asked to present the beneficiary/next of kin for the claim of the money (draft) from their office. At this juncture, I have decided to divert this Ten Million United States Dollars to a foreigner who will be presented to LSG, by soliciting the assistance of a reliable individual (A Foreigner) that will be presented as the beneficiary/next of kin of the fund. I will prepare all legal documents in your name as the successor /next of kin from our Federal High Court to back up the claim on your behalf which will enable Lagos State Government to release the money to me on your behalf as the known next of kin to my late client. As soon as I hear your positive response; action will commence. Please bear in mind that there is no risk involved in this transaction, but it requires absolute sincerity and confidentiality due to the nature of the transaction. I am willing to give you 35% of the fund as a reward foryour assistance in this transaction and I have set aside 5% of the money to take care of any expenses that will be involved locally or internationally during the process of executing the business. I will want you to respond to my email on with your private phone numbers for quick communication. I look forward to your swift response. Regards, Barrister John Dike
