MR MR PATRICK GOMA Eko International Bank PLC Plot 5 Ikeja Commercial Scheme Ikeja, Lagos-Nigeria Tel: +234-1-4932582, 4932567, 4932584 website: Dear Friend, This is a proposal in context but actually an appeal soliciting for your unreserved assistance in consummating an urgent transaction requiring maximum confidence. Though this approach appears desperate, I can assure you that whatever questions you would need to ask or any other thing you will need to know regarding this proposal will be adequately answered to give you a clearer understanding of it, so as to arrive at a successful conclusion. My name is MR PATRICK GOMA, Head (Treasury & Financial Institutions), Eko International Bank PLC, Lagos-Nigeria. On December 6, 1999, a foreign consultant/contractor with the Federal Ministry of Works & Housing, Mr. David Sidney Jocelyn-Duffield, made a numbered time (fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$17,000,000.00, (Seventeen Million United States Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, I sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Federal Ministry of Works & Housing, that Mr. Jocelyn-Duffield 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. Jocelyn-Duffield did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in our Bank. This sum of US$17,000,000.00 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 5 (five) years, the funds will be Unclaimable and revert to the ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. In order to avert this negative development, I in conjunction with a colleague (the Chief Operating Officer in the bank) now seek your permission to allow my attorney do a CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP/REASSIGNMENT OF CREDIT of stated funds from the "deceased" to your name, so that the funds (US$17million) would be released to you as the new owner (on behalf of me and my colleague). We are writing you because, as public servants, we cannot operate a foreign account or have an account that is more than N250,000:00. Consequently, I will present you as the owner of the funds to the bank so you can be able to claim them. This is simple. I will like you to provide immediately; 1. Full names 2. Contact address 3. Telephone and fax numbers Once I receive these information, I will prepare the necessary documents which will put you in place as the new owner of the funds. The money will then be released to your custody by the bank, for us to share in the ratio of 80% for us and 20% for you. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the solicitor and this will guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via my email address. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and my confidential phone number for further explanation that will help you understand the transaction. No doubt this proposal will make you apprehensive, Please we employ you to observe utmost confidentiality and rest assured that this transaction would be most Profitable for both of us because we shall require your assistance to invest our share in real estates in your country. This is why your urgent action and response is of priority to enable us conclude this transaction in a timely and professional manner. Awaiting your swift response via this email box.

Thanks and regards,
