Dear Sir,


I am Kenneth Johnson, I work in the Internal Control Unit (ICU) of Union Bank of Nigeria Plc Lagos Nigeria.. 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.
