Dear Sir,


I am Don Peterside, corporate banker in Zenith International Bank of Nigeria, Lagos Branch. I have urgent and very
confidential business proposition for you. On June 6, 1998, an American Oil Consultant/Contractor with the

Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Robert Noel made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar
months, valued at US$25,000,000.00 (Twenty-five Million US dollars only) 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 finally we discovered from
his contract employers, the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation that Mr. Robert Noel died from an automobile crash.
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a "WILL", and all attempt to trace his next of kin was

fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Robert Noel did not declare any kin relations in
all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paper work in my Bank. This sum of US$25,000,000.00 only is still
in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come
foreword to claim it. According to Nigeria Law, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership

of the Nigeria Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to stand
