Dear Sir/Madam,
I am DR. Yetunde Bassey. Bank

Manager of Diamond Bank of

Lagos Branch. I have urgent and

confidential business

proposition for you.

On June 6, 1999, a FOREIGN Oil

with the Nigerian National

Petroleum Corporation, Mr.
Barry Kelly made a numbered time

(Fixed) Deposit for
twelve calendar months, valued

at US$25,000,000.00
(Twenty- five Million Dollars)

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 Nigerian

National Petroleum
Corporation that Mr. Barry Kelly

died from an
automobile accident.

On further investigation, I

found out that he died without

making a WILL, and
all attempts to trace his next

of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further

investigation and discovered

that Mr. Barry Kelly did
not declare any kin or relations

in all his official documents,

including his
Bank Deposit paperwork in my

Bank. This sum of

US$25,000,000.00 is still
sitting 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 forward to claim


According to Nigerian Law, at

the expiration of 5 (five)

years, the money will
revert to the ownership of the

Nigerian Government if
nobody applies to claim the


Consequently, my proposal is

that I will like you as
an Foreigner to stand in as the

next of kin to Mr.
Barry Kelly so that the fruits
