Re:Transfer of $26,100,000.00 US Dollars.

Let me start by introducing myself properly to you, I am Barrister Tommy Etiebet,attorney to late engineer Denis lewis. I came to know of you in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account which require maximum confidence.


A foreigner, late engineer Denis, an oil merchant/contractor with the federal government of Nigeria, until his death 8 years ago in a ghastly car crash, has an account with a bank in Africa, my client has a balance of $26.1m (Twenty Six million, one hundred thousand united states dollars only) which the bank now unquestionably expects it to be claimed by any available next-of-kin of the late beneficiary. Fervent efforts was made by the bank to locate his next-of-kin without success and since I am his attorney, a letter was sent to me to provide his next of kin or relatives, which I tried but proved to no avail.

It is because of the perceived possibility of not being able to locate any of late Engr. Denis next-of-kin (he had no wife and children) that the management under the influence of the chairman of the board of directors stated that the fund should be declared un-claimable.

I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next-of-kin to my late client so that the funds can be released to you as the beneficiary next-of-kin, all documents and proves to enable you get this fund $26.1m will be carefully worked out by me, So I am assuring you of a risk free involvement.

Pertaining the disbursement of the 26.1million us dollars, I am willing to let you have 30% of the total sum, 1% for re-emborsement of any expenses we make, the remaing balance from the 1% will be shared equally after the transaction is done, while the rest 69% will be for me and my source. Please your earliest respond will be highly appreciated.

All I required in pure heart is a partner to work with and achieve this transaction. Hence I can not do this alone, i deem it better dealing with an external person whom after the business will quietly take his share and the transaction will lay covered.

I expect your respond through this mail or my other *LINK REMOVED* so that we can talk for more understanding and plans ahead as this matter require an aurgent follow up.


Tommy Etiebet.
