I'd skip this if I were you it's all rather boring.

Subject: Re: Urgent Assistance, (Great Financial Reward).



I am Mr Dominic Goma, Manager of Auditing and Accounts Department of the
Foreign Remittance Division, Bank Of Africa. I have urgent and very
confidential business proposition for you. On November 1999, an American
oil consultant /contractor with the Cote D'Ivoire Ministry of Aviation ,
Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered time (Fixed) deposited 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, Cote d'Ivoire Ministry of Aviation
that Mr. Barry Kelly died from an automobile accident. 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 Ivoirian Law, at the
expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of
the Cote d'Ivoire 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 corrupt officials.

This is simple, I will like you to provide me immediately with your full
names and address so that an 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 an attorney for drafting and notarisation of the
WILL and obtain the necessary documents and letter of
probate/administration in your favour 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 bank account for us to share in the ratio of 80%
for me and 20% for you.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be
done by the attorney and my position in this Bank guarantees the
successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please
reply immediately via this my private email address. 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 email or phone no +225 07774012.

Thanks and God bless you

Best Regards
