Attached Message
I am Mr.John Martins, Director of the Auditing and Accounting Department
,Foreign Operations Department of a financial institution I work in. I ha=
ve
an urgent and confidential business proposal for you. On June 6, 1999, an=

American oil consultant/contractor with (N N P C) Mr. William Barnes made=

a 12 months numbered time (fixed) deposit worth US$ 30.000.000.00 (Thirty=

Million United State Dollars) with my bank. 

This deposit was to secure the American contractor's bid for the job of c=
onstructing
a pipeline from Nigeria to the Republic of Ghana to supply oil and gas ar=
ound
the West African Sub Region. On maturity, I sent a routine notification t=
o
his forwarded address but got no reply. After months we sent a reminder a=
nd
finally we discovered from his contract employee (N N P C) that Mr. Willi=
am
Barnes was involved in a plane crash with Egyptian Airline 990 as you can=

see from the website below; http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/world/americas/502503=
.stm

I therefore made some investigations and discovered that Late Mr. William=

Barnes did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official d=
ocuments
including his deposit document in my bank. The total sum of US$30,000,000=
.00
is still in my bank as dormant account. No one will ever come forward to
claim it, for according to our banking law, after 7 (SEVEN) years, the mo=
ney
will revert to the ownership of the Government . If the account owner is
certified death and nobody comes forward to claim it. 

This is the situation, and my proposal is that I am asking for your assis=
tance
to stand in is the beneficiary to Late Mr. William Barnes, for us to tran=
sfer
the money. All you have to do is agree to work with me in this transfer .=

The money will be transferred into your designated account. After the tra=
nsfer,
I will visit your country for disbursement in the ratio of 30% (Thirty pe=
rcent)
for you, 10% (Ten percent) will be used to cover any contingency expense,=
10%
(Ten percent) will be donated to charity,the rest will be for me. You do
not need to worry, its 100% risk free and I guarantee that this will be e=
xecuted
under a legitimate Arrangement that will protect you from any breach of t=
he
Law.

I will use my position and connection in the bank here to do all the docu=
mentation
work for the transaction. This transaction is 100% risk free guaranteed.
If you are interested, please reply confidentiality and be rest assured t=
hat
this transaction could be most profitable for both of us. This transactio=
n
requires utmost confidentiality and secrecy. I will require 

that you send to me your.

1) Phone number;
2) Contact address;
3) Age;
4) Occupation and location;
