DEAR FRIEND,

I AM MR.BABA AHMAD. BANK MANAGER OF ORIENT BANK OF NIGERIA
LAGOS BRANCH.
I HAVE URGENT AND VERY CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PPROPOSITION
FOR YOU.
ON JUNE 6TH, 2000, A CANADIAN OIL CONSULTANT / CONTRACTOR
WITH THE NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM COPORATION, MR, BARRY
KELLY MADE A NUMBERED TIME (FIX) DEPOSIT FOR TWELVE CALENDAR
MONTHS VALUED ATUS$25,000, 000.00. (TWENTY? FIVE MILLION
UNITED STATES DOLLARS) IN MY BRANCH.
UPON MATURITY I SENT A ROUTINE NOTIFICATION TO HIS FORWARDING ADDRESS BUT
GOT NO REPLY.
AFTER A MONTH, WE SENT A REMINDER AND FINALY WE DISCOVERED
FROM HIS CONTRACT EMPLOYERS THE NIGERIAN NATIONAL
PETROLEUM CORPORATION THAT MR, BARRY KELLY DIED FROM AN
AUTO MOBILE ACCEDENT.
ON FURTHER INVESTIGATION, I FIND OUT THAT HE
DIED WITHOUT MAKING A WILL, AND ALL ATTEMPTS TO TRACE HIS
NEXT OF KIN WAS FRUITLESS.
I THEREFORE MADE FURTHER INVESTIGATION AND DISCOVERED THAT
MR, BARRY KELLY DID NOT DECLARE ANY KIN OR RELATIONS IN
ALL HIS OFFICAIL DOCUMENTS INCLUDING
HIS BANK DEPOSIT PAPER WORK IN MY BANK.
THIS SUM OF US$25,000,000.00. IS STILL SITTING IN MY BANK
AND THE INTEREST IS BEING ROLED 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 5(FIVE) YEARS, THE
MONEYWILL REVERT TO THE OWNERSHIP OF THE NIGERIAN
GORVERNMENT IF NOBODY APPLIES TO CLAIM THE FUND.
CONSEQUENTLY, MY PROPOSAL IS THAT I WILL LIKE YOU AS A
FOREIGNER TO STAND IN AS THE NEXT OF KIN TO MR, BARRY
KELLY SO THAT THE FRUITS OF THIS OLD MAN?S LABOUR WILL NOT
GET INTO THE HANDS OF SOME CORRUPT GORVERNMENT
OFFICIALS.
THIS IS SIMPLE, I WILL LIKE YOU TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATELY
YOUR FULL NAMES AND ADDRESS SO THAT THE ATTORNEY WILL
PREPARE THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS AND AFFIDAVITS WHICH WILL
PUT YOU IN PLACE AS THE NEXT OF KIN.
WE SHALL EMPLOY THE SERVICE OF TWO ATTORNEY FOR DRAFTING
AND NOTARIZATION OF THE WILL AND TO OBTAIN THE NECESSARY
DOCUMENTS AND LETER OF PROBATE/ ADMINISTRATION IN YOUR
FAVOUR FOR THE TRANSFER.
A BANK ACCOUNT IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD WHICH YOU WILL
PROVIDE WILL THEN FACILITATE THE TRANSFER OF THIS MONEY TO
YOU AS THE BENEFICAIRY/ NEXTOF KIN.
THE MONEY WILL BE PAID INTO YOUR ACCOUNT FOR US TO SHARE
IN THE RATIO OF60% FOR ME AND 40% FOR YOU.
THERE IS NO RISK ATALL AS ALL THE PAPER WORK FOR THIS
TRANSACTION WILL BE DONE BY THE ATTORNEY AND MY POSITION
AS THE BRANCH MANAGER GUARANTEES THE SUCCESSFUL EXECUTION
OF THIS TRANSACTION.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE REPLY IMMEDIATELY VIA THE
PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS BELLOW.
YOU CAN ALSO REPLY VIA MY PRIVATE FAX NUMBER OR YOU CALL
ME ON MY PRIVATE TELEPHONE NUMBER :UPON YOUR RESPONSE, I
SHALL THEN PROVIDE YOU WITH MORE DETAILS AND RELEVANT
DOCUMENTS THAT WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE TRANSACTION.
PLEASE OBSERVE UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY, AND REST ASSURED
THAT THIS TRANSACTION WILL BE MOST PROFITABLE FOR BOTH OF
US BECAUSE I SHALL REQUIRE YOUR ASSISTANCE TO INVEST MY
SHARE IN YOUR COUNTRY.
AWAITING YOUR URGENT REPLY VIA EMAIL OR THROUGH MY PRIVATE
PHONE NUMBER.
THANKS AND REGARDS.
MR.BABA AHMAD.
