ATTN: MR JOHN MARK STURGEON

BEFORE I START, I MUST FIRST APOLOGISE FOR THIS UNSOLICITED MAIL TO YOU. I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS CERTAINLY AN UNCONVENTIONAL APPROACH TO STARTING A RELATIONSHIP, BUT AS TIME GOES ON YOU WILL REALISE THE NEED FOR MY ACTION.

MY NAME IS BARRISTER DAVID ADAM , A SOLICITOR AND THE PERSONAL ATTORNEY TO MR RICKIE ALLAN HARDING, YOUR FIANCE'S FATHER AND A CITIZEN OF YOUR COUNTRY, WHO WORKED WITH THE SYNAGOGUE CHURCH OF ALL NATION (SCOAN) HERE IN NIGERIA WHO IS ALSO REFERED TO AS “MY CLIENT”. ON THE 3RD OF MAY 2003, MY CLIENT, AND SOME OTHER PASTORS WERE INVOLVED IN A VITAL MOTOR ACCIDENT ALONG THE SHAGAMU EXPRESS ROAD. MY CLIENT AND THE ENTIRE MEMBER UNFORTUNATELY LOST THEIR LIVES IN THE ACCIDENT.

MY MAIN REASON FOR CONTACTING YOU IS TO BRING TO YOUR NOTICE THAT I AND MRS MARY HARDING (MELISSA'S MOTHER) BEFORE HER DEATH AND MISS MELISSA HARDING HERSELF HAVE COME TO A CONCLUTION THAT ALL THERE FATHER/HUSBAND MONEY SHOULD BE GIVEN TO YOU AS RICKIE ALLAN HARDING SON IN-LAW.. MR RICKIE ALLAN HARDING HAS A FIXED SUM OF EIGHTEEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS. THE SAID BANK HAS ISSUED ME A FINAL NOTICE TO PROVIDE THE NEXT OF KIN OF MY CLIENT AND FINALLY MISS MELISSA HARDING HAVE SUBMITED YOUR NAME AND YOUR INFORMATION AS HER HUSBAND AND MR RICKIE ALLAN HARDING SON IN-LAW.

I SEEK YOUR CONSENT TO PRESENT YOU AS THE NEXT OF KIN OF MY CLIENT MR RICKIE ALLAN HARDING, GOING BY THE FACT THAT BOTH OF YOU HAVE THE SAME NATIONALITY, SO THAT THE SAID FUNDS AS STATED ABOVE, IE, THE SUM OF EIGHTEEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS, CAN BE PAID TO YOU AS MR RICKIE ALLAN HARDING SON IN-LAW. I HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY LEGAL DOCUMENTS THAT CAN BE USED TO BACK UP ANY CLAIM WE MAY MAKE. ALL I REQUIRE IS YOUR HONEST CO-OPERATION TO ENABLE US TO SEE THIS ARRANGEMENT THROUGH. I GUARANTEE THAT THIS WILL BE EXECUTED UNDER A LEGITIMATE ARRANGEMENT THAT WILL PROTECT YOU FROM ANY BREACH OF THE LAW.

PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR CONFIDENTIAL PHONE/FAX NUMBERS SO WE CAN START FROM THERE..

BEST REGARDS,

BARRISTER DAVID ADAM

ATTN: MR JOHN MARK STURGEON

Thanks so much for your message.I would like you to furnish me with the following:

Full name and address: to enable me process the necessary documents from the Ministry of Justice.
Personal phone for easy communication. as i tried to call the one in your last email but did not get through.

above are the information I would want you to furnish me with. Not withstanding, I would also want you to open a bank account where these funds will be transferred to, or if you have an account that will contain the funds, which I believe will be preferable. Note that the moment I get your reply to this mail, I will send you the deposit certificate of the $18 million, which Union Bank of Nigeria PLC gave to my late client on the day of deposit, which he gave to me for safekeeping before his death. The money was deposited in Nigeria before his death, as the late MR MURRAY MARTIN MOORE wanted to use the money for investment in London before the auto crash accident which took his life away.

As long as you stay truthful to this transaction, I assure you that it will be beneficial to both you and Melissa by the grace of god almighty. Please call me on this number so that we can talk more: + 234 701 783 8741. i will contact Melissa and see what i can do as well ..

Thanks and God bless,
