FROM THE DESKTOP
OF MR.OLABODE SMITH
I seek for your co-operation; my name is Mr.Olabode Smith A Personal Accountant to Late Engineer Michael, a citizen of your country , who used to work with
French oil major total, company here in. Herein, shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2004, Mr. Michael, his wife and his three children
were involved in a drastic car accident along Sagamu/Lagos Express Road. Unfortunately he and his three kids lost their lives immediately in the event of the
accident, while the wife was taken to the hospital where she died three days later. Their bodies were kept in the mortuary for five months, in order for the
authority, to carry out a proper investigation on how to locate their surviving relatives. They have checked all available public files and embassies, but
all their efforts had proved abortive, as they could not fund any of their relatives.
After these several unsuccessful attempts, no one has been coming for his account that he deposited with my bank (Oceanic Bank Nigeria Plc). And due to the
banking law and regulation of 1985, sub section 18d page 103 chapter 11 of constitution governing all banking policy, and in accordance to the banking decree
003 sub section 45 which stated that any deposited fund which remains unclaimed after the existing period of four years will be confiscated by the national
treasury department as unclaimed fund. And this has brought too much agitation in our bank between boards of directors on how to declare this account
unserviceable, base on the fact that the deceased has no next of kin. After the meeting held by the executives of intercontinental bank with the personal
attorney to late Michael on 15th of August 2009, they have all agreed to extend the date to 25th of July 2010.
Consequently to this, I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before the national treasury department
gets them confiscated or declare unserviceable by Oceanic bank Plc Where the deceased have an account Valued at about fifteen Million, three hundred and
forty five thousand U.S dollars (USD 15, 345,000.00). The bank has issued out a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated with in the
next few days. Since no one has been able to locate their relatives for over four years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the
deceased so that this account valued at fifteen Million, three hundred and forty five thousand U.S dollars (USD 15, 345,000.00) can be paid to you and then
you and I Can share the money. All the necessary documents concerning this claim are with the Bank legal department. All I require is your honest cooperation
to enable us seeing this deal through,Get back to me for immediate commencement of this deal.
