Attn: Sir/Madam.

My Name is Barrister Steve Nwa(SAN), a Solicitor. I am the Personal Attorney to mrs. Ann Parker, a 
national of your country. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.On 
December 18, 1999, an American Oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum 
Corporation, Mrs. Ann Parker. made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelvecalendar months, 
valued at US$14.600, 000.00(Fourteen Million, Six Hundred thousand Dollars) in a bank. Upon 
maturity, I sent a routine notification to her forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, 
I sent a reminder and finally i discovered from her contract employers, the Nigerian National 
Petroleum Corporation that Mrs. Ann Parker. died from a ghastly automobile accident.

On further investigation, I found out that she died without making a WILL, and all attempts to 
trace her next of kin was fruitless.I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mrs. 
Ann Parker. did not declare any next of kin or relations in all her official documents, including 
her Bank Deposit paperwork in her Bank. This sum of US$14.600, 000.00 is still sitting in her 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 ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim this fund 
Consequently, My proposal is that I will like you as a Foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to 
Mrs. Ann Parker. so that the fruits of this woman's labuor will not get into the hands of some 
government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and 
address,your Telephone and fax number, Your age and marital Status so that the Attorney will 
prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in place as the next of kin.

I will drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of 
probate/ administration in your favour for the transfer. I would need you as a Foreigner acting as 
the next of kin and sole benefactor to the inheritance of Mrs. Ann Parker. to travel and claim this 
money in a SECURITY COMPANY based in Europe which is used by her bank as an offshore payment center 
to the bank. The money will be paid to you for us to share in the ratio of 50% for me and 40% for 
you then 10% for any expensee that may come up. There is no risk at all as all the pape rwork for 
this transaction will be done by me with my position as Attorney guarantees the successful 
execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately.

Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details andrelevant documents that will help 
you understand the transaction. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this 
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shallr equire your assistance to 
invest my share in your country. Am urgently waiting for your quick response.Thanks and regards.

Barr. Steve Nwa.
