Dear Sir,

I am MR. PASCAL EDOZIEN, Bank Manager of Diamond Bank of Nigeria, Lagos Branch. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On June 6, 1995, a FOREIGN Oil consultant/contractor with the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Edward Peters 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. Edward Peters 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. Edward Peters 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. According to Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 10 (ten) 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 a Foreigner to stand in as the next-of-kin to Mr. Edward Peters so that the fruits of this old man'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 Attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits, which will put you in place as the next-of-kin. We shall employ the service of two Attorneys for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to 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 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 85% for me and 15% 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, please reply immediately via the private email address below. 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. Awaiting your urgent reply via my alternative email: (pascaledozien2@vietmedia.com).

Best Regards,
