STRICTLY PERSONAL

My name is Antonio Reale I am the family Lawyer of Mr&Mrs. Raymond & Dorene Beck, 60, Sweet Home, Oregon United State of America here in the Nigeria. I am contacting you with regard to transfer of a huge sum of money from the deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that everything has been taken care off, and all will be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.

PROPOSITION;
I am the family Lawyer of Mr&Mrs.Raymond & Dorene Beck, 60, Sweet Home, Oregon who died in an air crash along with his wife on the 31st October 1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with other passengers on board. You can confirm this from the website below which was published by CNN.WEBSITE. <http://www.cnn.com/US/9911/02/egyptair990.list/index.html>

Since his death, none of his next-of-kins has come forward to put claims for this money as his heir, because they all died in the same accident himself and his wife (May their soul rest in peace). Though, the bank where he deposited has made several publications to locate the family members, but all was not successful. they cannot release the funds from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in their banking guidelines.

Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased, as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the funds (US$35,000,000.00) to be released in your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin. Because after five years the money will be called back to the bank's treasury account as unclaimed bills and the money shared amongst the directors of the bank. So it was as a result of this, I conceived the idea of searching for a foreigner who can apply as the next of kin/beneficiary.

It may interest you to know that i have secured from the probate division an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of my mutual business endeavor by furnishing me with the following informations, if you are interested.

1.A Beneficiary name? In order for me to prepare the document for transfer of the funds in your name.

2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers. For our personal contact and mutual trust in each other.

If this proposal is acceptable by you, please endevour to contact me immediately. Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed on you,

I await your urgent mail to my personal Email: XXXXXX@XXXXX.com or by telephone

I am a bonfide citizen of the federal republic of Liberia and also the first son of the late vice president (comrage) ENOCH DOGOLEA, who was murdered in president Charles Taylor`s farm ,When president Charles Taylor went to deleberate on the issue of peace talk with the Africa Union Organisation in Ghana , May his gentle soul rest in peace . His dead body was flight to Abidjan the capital city of Ivory Coast and this was the reason why we believe that, it was a part of the concealment plot by president Taylor because he told the authority of Liberia that my father was not dead but he was in a state of comma and he was flight to Abibjan to be taking to Paris for further treatment. A day after, President Taylor finally announce >that my father was dead after taking a cup of coffee in president Taylor's farm. His death became a complicated issue characterise by chaos and disharmony, because he was very loyal to President Taylor.
