I am Dr. JONES ABDUL, Bank Manager of Safe Trust Bank, Lagos Branch.
I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.

On June 6, 1999, an American Oil consultant/contractor with the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mrs. Ann Barbara Myers 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 her forwarding address but
got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we
discovered from her contract employers, the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation that Mrs. Ann Barbara Myers died from an
automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that she
died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace her next of kin
were fruitless.

I therefore made ! fu! rther investigation and discovered that Mrs. Ann
Barbara Myers 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 it and 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 fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as an American to
stand in as the next of kin to Mrs. Ann Barbara Myers so that the
fruits of this woman's labor will not get into the hands of some
corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to
provide immediately your full names and address so that the Attorneys
will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put
you! i! n place as the next of kin. We shall employ the service of two
Attorneys to process and notarization all the necessary documents and
letter of probate/administration in your favor in order for the
transfer to take place. A bank account in any part of the world
which you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this
money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid
into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40%
for you.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction
will be done by the Attorneys and my position as the Branch Manager
guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are
interested, please reply immediately via the private email address
below. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and
relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.

Please observe utmost conf! id! entiality, and rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall
require your assistance to invest my share in your country.please send your office phone and your cell phone numbers where i can reac you at all time for further vital discussion

Awaiting your urgent reply via my email: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks and regards.
