"Make millions helping me defraud somebody else..."

Thu, 19 Apr 2001 19:00:51 +0100 An: "file" <xxxxxxx> Betreff: (No Subject) Dear Sir, I am Mr. John Okon, Bank Manager of Orient Bank of Nigeria, Lagos Branch. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.

On June 6, 1997, an American Oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$75,000,000.00 (Seventy Five Million Dollars) in my branch. On 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 by the American Embassy 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 total US$75,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank as dormant account. No one will ever come forward to claim it, and according to Nigerian Law after 5 years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Nigeria Government if the account owner is certified dead and nobody comes forward to claim it.

This is the situation, and my proposal is that I am looking for an American who will stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Barry Kelly. A bank account abroad will then facilitate the transfer of this money to the beneficiary/next of kin. This is simple all you have to do is to immediately send me the details of a bank account anywhere in the world for me to arrange the proper money transfer paperwork. The money will then be paid into this account for us to share in the ratio 70% for me; 30% for you.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by me using my position and connection in the Banks in Nigeria. We shall employ the services of an attorney to draft the Will and obtain all necessary documents and letters of administration in your favour for the transfer. This transaction is guaranteed. If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address below. 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 my email:

Thank you and regards.

Mr. John Okon. >
