Dear Friend


  How are you doing? 


My intention of contacting you is to solicit your assistance for a project, which will be mutually 
beneficial. Though I know my decision to contact you is to a large extent unconventional, the 
prevailing circumstances necessitated my action. I am Barbra Kofi from Lagos, Federal Republic of 
Nigeria West African Sub-Region. I am married to Late Mr. Adams Kofi of blessed memory who was an 
oil explorer in Nigeria and Kuwait for twelve years before he died in the year 2006. We were 
married for twelve years without a child. He died after a fatal accident. 


We were both devoted Christian. Since his death I my self have been battling with  both Cancer and 
fibroid problems. When my late Husband Mr. James C.kofi was alive he  made a huge of money 
deposited in one of leading bank(First Bank of Nigeria Plc) in Africa (I will tell you the amount 
as we proceed).

Recently, my doctor told me that I have only three months to live due to the cancer of liver 


Having known my condition, I have decided to donate this fund to either an organization or 
individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want this 
organization or individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund orphanages, widows, Charity, 
etc. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my 
Husband's relatives are into some radical organizations. I will not need any telephone 
communication in this regard because of my health, secondly and most importantly, because of the 
presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this 


As soon as I receive your reply, I will issue a letter of authority to the Deposit Firm through my 
lawyer who will be contacting you.  


Until I hear from you by email, my dreams will rest squarely on your Shoulders. 


Best regards, 

Mrs.Barbra Kofi.
