<DIV>From the desk of: (Barrister Tony N. Ibe)</DIV>  <DIV>Re: transfer of $26,100,000.00 US 
Dollars.</DIV>  <DIV>Let me start by introducing myself properly to you, I am </DIV>  
<DIV>Barrister Tony N. Ibe, attorney to late engineer Denis lewis. I came to </DIV>  <DIV>know of 
you </DIV>  <DIV>in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this </DIV>  
<DIV>confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of </DIV>  <DIV>money to a 
foreign account requiring maximum confidence.</DIV>  <DIV>MY PROPOSITION</DIV>  <DIV></DIV>  <DIV>A 
foreigner, late engineer Denis, an oil merchant/contractor with the </DIV>  <DIV>federal government 
of Nigeria, until his death 8 years ago in a ghastly </DIV>  <DIV>car crash, has an account with a 
bank in Africa, my client </DIV>  <DIV>has a balance of $26.1m (Twenty Six million, one hundred 
thousand </DIV>  <DIV>united </DIV>  <DIV>states dollars only) which the bank now unquestionably 
expects it to be
 </DIV>  <DIV>claimed by any available next-of-kin of the late beneficiary. Fervent </DIV>  
<DIV>efforts are being made by the bank to locate his next-of-kin without </DIV>  <DIV>success and 
since I am his attorney, a letter was sent to me to provide </DIV>  <DIV>his next of kin or 
relatives, which I tried but proved to no avail.</DIV>  <DIV>It is because of the perceived 
possibility of not being able to locate </DIV>  <DIV>any of late Engr. Denis next-of-kin (he had no 
wife and children) that </DIV>  <DIV>the management under the influence of the chairman of the 
board of </DIV>  <DIV>directors stated that the fund should be declared un-claimable.</DIV>  
<DIV></DIV>  <DIV>I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next-of-kin to my </DIV>  
<DIV>late client so that the funds can be released to you as the beneficiary </DIV>  
<DIV>next-of-kin, all documents and proves to enable you get this fund </DIV>  <DIV>$26.1m </DIV>  
<DIV>will be carefully worked out by me, So I
 am assuring you of a risk </DIV>  <DIV>free involvement.</DIV>  <DIV>Pertaining the disbursement 
of the 26.1million us dollars, I am willing </DIV>  <DIV>to let you have 30% of the total sum, 
while the rest will be for me and </DIV>  <DIV>my source. Please your earliest respond will be 
highly appreciated.</DIV>  <DIV>Regards</DIV>  <DIV></DIV>  <DIV>Barrister Tony Ibe.</DIV>
