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$ (Thirty=

This deposit was to secure the American contractor's bid for the job of c=
a pipeline from Nigeria to the Republic of Ghana to supply oil and gas ar=
the West African Sub Region. On maturity, I sent a routine notification t=

finally we discovered from his contract employee (N N P C) that Mr. Willi=
Barnes was involved in a plane crash with Egyptian Airline 990 as you can=

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=
including his deposit document in my bank. The total sum of US$30,000,000=
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=
will revert to the ownership of the Government . If the account owner is
certified death and nobody comes forward to claim it.

the money. All you have to do is agree to work with me in this transfer .=

not need to worry, its 100% risk free and I guarantee that this will be e=
under a legitimate Arrangement that will protect you from any breach of t=

I will use my position and connection in the bank here to do all the docu=
work for the transaction. This transaction is 100% risk free guaranteed.
