>From the desk of
Mr Yomi Barnabas,
Accounts Director,
Union Bank plc,

Dear friend
I am Mr Yomi Barnabas, an account director of Union Bank plc Nigeria, I
have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On June
6, 1999, a Foreign Construction firm's consultant/contractor in America
Engr. Stevenson Wright made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve ca=
months, valued at US$18,500,000.00, [Eighteen Million, five hundred thous=
US 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 discove=
from his contract employers,that Engr. Stevenson Wright died on a Plane

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 Engr. Stevenson Wright did not
declare any kin or relations in all his official documentations in Nigeri=
including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.

My reason for deciding to carry out this transaction is that Engineer Ste=
Wright did not mention any next of kin in any of the
documents held by my bank for the number of years he had banked with us.=

Since 1999 we have searched for any body that could be related to late
Engineer Stevenson Wright I was mandated by the bank to search for a re=
of late Engineer Wright and I did this from January 1999 to December 200=
after which the search was called off in the belief that soon a relative=

may turn up to claim his estate. Nevertheless, as it is, there is no rela=
Now, the Chairman of the bank who is a retired soldier has indicated his=

intentions for the money to be donated the money to a military trust if=

it is not claimed soon, this invariably means the continuous flow of more=

arms and ammunition. I know for sure that not all of the money will go
to the military trust some will surely line his pockets and that of anybo=
who is in support of his plan.
My plan is to get a trust worthy person that can,under my constant guidan=
present him self as a cousin to the late Engineer Wright. I want you to
note that your citizenship does not matter;You do not have to be an Ameri=
The papers demanded For the normal procedure for the claiming of an inhe=
has been taken care of. You will be sole beneficiary to the estate of En=
Wright. All I need is for you to follow my instructions closely because
I am experienced in inheritance matters here and I am on ground here to
advice you on every step.

I am writing you because I as a public servant (Staff of the bank) I can=
operate a foreign account or have an account that is more than $1m(one mi=
united states America Dollars). I want to present you as the relative(NEX=
OF KIN) of the the late Engineer Wright so that you can be able to claim
them with the help of my attorney.
This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names an=
address so that the Attorney will prepare the necessary documents which
will put you in place as the next of kin of the Engr. Wright. The money
will be moved out for us to share in the ratio of 70% for me and 30% for
you.There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction wil=
be done by the Attorney and this will guarantees the successful execution=

of this transaction.

If you are interested, please reply immediately via my email address
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and
relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.
Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be 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.(Buying of pro=
like houses, hotels etc) Please do send me your
private/mobile telephone fax number so that we can have a
smooth communication.

Awaiting your urgent reply via email:yomibarnabas@tiscali.co.uk

Mr Yomi Barnabas.
