Transfer assistance needed

From: Barr -

Lion Building,
Suite 52, Saka Tinubu,
Lagos Nigeria.

Dear friend,

I am Barr. Otu White personal attorney to Mr.Engr.A. John, a national of your country,who used to work with Orient Oil
Company here in Nigeria herein after, shall be referred to as my client. My client with his entire family (The wife and
Children) were involved in the explosion in Lagos,Nigeria, on February 2, 2003 which, claimed many lives and property.
Unfortunately, my client and the family lost their lives in that disaster that needed not to have happened.

Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives this has also proved
unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track you over the Internet, so that you can assist me
with the transaction. My purpose of contacting you is to assist in repatriating the money and property
left behind by my client prior to his death before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bankwhere this huge
deposits were lodged and where the deceased had an account valued at about US$5.5 Million dollars.

The guidelines of the bank stipulates that if any deposit remained unclaimed for over a period of 5 years and few months,
without the fund claimed, the said deposit will be confiscated and this will happen with some couple of official working
months if nobody comes for the money. The company had issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account
confiscated. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives, I seek your consent as the next of kin of the deceased
so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$5.5 million dollars can be paid to you. I will emanate all the necessary
official and legal documents that can be used to back upyour claim.

All I require is your honestco-operation to enable me as the legal attorney to the deceased in seeing that you receive the
inheritance fund. I guarantee that this will be executed legitimately to protect you from any breach of the law. See the 2
website of the bomb explosion below: -

Your full name and address
Your telephone and fax numbers
Your occupation and age

Looking forward to hear from you soonest.

With best regards,
