Hello Friend,

Compliments to you; I sincerely apologize for the intrude into your
private life, however I have a serious project which I believe would be of
interest to you and for this reason I reached out to you. I am Barrister
Mohammed Bello. I worked as an attorney to an Oil Servicing company {CEDRY
INCORPORATED} from 1980 to 1996 when the company Folded. The company Cedry
folded as a result of feud amongst the directors. On the 11th of June
1986, I as the company lawyer took a LIFE ASSURANCE POLICY for the
Chairman of the company for a period of TWENTY YEARS, which is from June
1986 till June 2006. This LIFE POLICY was taken from a reputable Insurance
 Company here called STANDARD TRUST INSURANCE PLC. The premium for this
Life policy was paid upfront by Cedry because it is a long-term policy.

In 1996, Cedry folded but Standard Trust Insurance Company did not
terminate the Life Policy I took for the Chairman because we did not apply
 for cancellation or termination of the Policy. On July 2006, I got a
letter from Standard Trust Insurance notifying me that the LIFE POLICY I
took for Cedry's Chairman twenty years ago was due and that I should
provide the Chairman for termination of the Policy to  enable him receive
his MATURITY VALUE  of Three Million Dollars accrued over a period of
twenty years.

Since July 2006 till date I have searched for the Chairman and have made
several inquiries without success. Just last month, I ran into one of
Cedry's staff who gave me information that the Chairman was dead long
after he left our country. I went back to tell the Insurance Company that
the Chairman is very old and senile with very bad sight and as such cannot
act. The Insurance Company told me to get any of  the Chairmanís relative
with my authorization to claim the maturity value for him. I have resolved
to get any person having  same name as the Chairman to  stand as his
relative to claim this maturity value hence a contacted you. If we don't
claim this money,  no one would and the money would be retained in the
coffers of the Insurance Company as their profit. I feel it is rather
appropriate that we team up and claim this money and use some percentage
of it to help the poor and the less privilege in our society than allow
the Insurance Company to retain it as profit.

I have in my file some necessary legal documents for the existence of the
Cedry and the Life Policy. I will send to you once you indicate your
interest. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
project through. I guarantee that this will be executed within three weeks
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of
law. The Insurance Company will be obliged to released the Maturity Value
to whoever I present to them as heir to the Chairman of Cedry with back up
documents. I will send my International passport identification to you in
my next mail. I will also send a claim application to you, which you will
fill and send to the Insurance Company for  the release of the maturity
value to your account. I will come over to your country once this
transaction is completed for my share and investment. You and I will share
this fund equal at conclusion.
