Dear Friend,
I am very sorry to interrupt your peace since you are 
expecting to receive any mail from me. However, I was obliged to 
do so due to the need and urgency of the message. I sincerely write 
seek your co operation and trust to enable me carries out an urgent 
business opportunity in my department.
I am Mr. Ray Umar, an 
accountant and account manager to Mr. A. Thomas, who here-in after 
shall be referred 
to as my client, on the January 27th, 2002 my client 
and his family were among those involved in an Ikeja bomb blast 
unfortunately they lost their lives in the process of the bomb blast. 
For confirmation, please refer to the links 
Since then I have made several 
inquiries to his Country embassy to locate any of my client's 
Relatives, this has proved unsuccessful.
My client was an oil 
contractor with the Federal Government of my Country; He left in his 
domiciliary account a 40% of private individual deposit with our 
which I have with me the Investment Deposit Certificate an important 
document worth Twenty  Million United States Doller 
(US$20,000,000.00).Until date I still manage this 
I will 
like to know you personally and then state in Court through a 
attorney here declaring you as the next of kin to my late client.I am 
contacting you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my 
late client. While, you and I will benefit in the fund. 
The Bank will 
pay this money to you as an inheritance.
After the sudden death of my 
client, and for the reason that there as has not been a next of kin 
my late client, the bank has decided to forfeit the money and declare 
it as an abandoned property as there is no next of kin who should 
inherit his funds.
The board of directors of this bank adopted a 
resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the 
payment of this money within 5 months working days starting from the 
10th May 2006, or forfeit the money to the bank as an abandoned 
property. The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property 
decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the 
period given to me.
I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it 
will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my 
client, so that you can be paid the funds left in his bank account.
therefore seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the 
Deceased client since your have the same last name and also from same 
national, so that the proceeds of this Bank account valued at Twenty 
Million United Stats Dollars (US$20,000,000.00) can be paid to you.
The need for a foreigner as next of kin in this project is occasioned 
by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Nigerian will not 
perfectly fit in as his next of kin or heir.
I have agreed that a 
reasonable percentage of the Fund would be given to you as foreign 
partner, thereafter I will meet you in your country for disbursement. 
Please understand that my approach to you is based only on my 
reasoning and on the belief that you will not disappoint or betray me 
at last.
The amount is fairly huge and we have agreed that on 
completion of the deal, you will be highly compensated for your 
An attorney will be contracted to help us revalidated and 
notarize all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back 
this claim you may make as soon as I hear from you with your full 
consent to present you to the Bank as the next of kin to my late 
client, after we reach an agreement.
All I require is your honest 
cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. 
I guarantee that 
this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will 
you from any breach of the law.
Please consider my official positions, 
reputation and integrity, especially, the opportunities in the 
itself, it is very necessary that all due care be taken so 
that we do not miss the opportunity due to carelessness.
You are 
therefore expected and advised to display high degree of maturity, 
responsibility and understanding in handling this information.
I will 
give you all the details in my next mail when you have indicated your 
interest and commitment to work with me. Always remember that this is 
the highest confidence and trust any person can repose on the other, 
when it is considered that we did not know ourselves 
before. I hope you will honor me too.
I will come over to join you in 
your Country for disbursement when the funds hit your account.
More so 
for an effective and easy communication I will advice that you 
me with the following:
1.Telephone/fax number:
2.Your complete home 
3.Your full names:
I await your good response.
Best Regards,
Mr. Ray Umar.
