I am Mr Wole Olukoya, Bank Manager of ORIENT BANK OF NIGERIA, Lagos 
Branch. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you 
and it is carefully explained for your understanding as follows. 

On June 6 1997, an American oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian 
National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered time 
account (Fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at 
US$25,000,000.00 (Twenty-five Million United States 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, Nigerian National Petroleum 
Corporation that Mr. Barry Kelly has since died from an automobile 

On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and 
all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made 
further investigation and discovered that Mr. Barry Kelly did not declare 
any next of kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit 
paperwork. This sum of US$25,000,000.00 is still sitting in the Bank and 
the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of 
each year. No one will come forward to claim it. According to the 
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 funds. 

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to 
stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Barry Kelly so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some undeserving and corrupt officials. 

This is simple, I will like you to provide me immediately with the 
following; your full names, date and place of birth and complete address with confidential telephone and fax numbers so that the 
attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits, which 
will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of two attorneys for drafting and notarization of the WILL and obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. 

A bank account in any part of the world, which you would 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 attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the 
successful execution of this transaction. 

If you are interested, Upon your response, I shall then provide you 
With more details and relevant documents that will help you understand. Please observe utmost confidentiality, 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. Awaiting your urgent reply via e-mail. 

Thanks and regards 

Wole Olukoya.
