Dear Sir/Madam, 

I know this message will come to you as a surprise since we do not know each other before, but for 
the purpose of introduction, I am Mr. David Ogadimma Operation manager in Ecobank Plc Lagos 
Nigeria. There is an account opened in this bank in 1991. After going through some old files in the 
records, I discovered that nobody has operated in this account since 2000. From our records, the 
owner of this account is Mr. Smith B. Andrea {a foreigner from USA, a miner at Kruger Gold. Co. and 
a geologist by profession}. After several notifications as a routine to the address of this 
distinguished customer of ours, his employees told our management that Mr. Smith Andrea died when a 
Kenyan Airways plane crashed along the coast of West Africa in 30th January 2000.

My investigation proved to me that no other person knows about this account or anything concerning 
it, the company does not know anything about this account as well, the account has no beneficiary. 
This account presently accommodates an amount involving $18 Million United State Dollars only. The 
money has been here in our Bank lying dormant for Ten (10) good years now without anybody coming 
for the claim of it, and the Banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than 11 
years, because the money will be recalled to the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. With all due 
respect, I am contacting you because of my need to involve a reliable foreign beneficiary with a 
foreign account, who will coordinate this transaction with me. I want our bank to release the money 
to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer, I would like you to assist me and claim 
these funds to your company bank account or your private bank account.

I am contacting you on a business transaction that requires confidentiality, trust and 
transparency, where both of us have a lot to benefit. I need your full co-operation to make this 
transaction successful, the bank will transfer the funds to any foreign party who has correct 
information regarding the deceased customer account.  Which I will transfer to you immediately if 
you are capable and willing to handle the amount in question with confidence and trust according to 
my instructions and advice for our mutual benefit. Dear friend this is a life time opportunity I 
wish to share with you.

I need a trustworthy person due to the nature of the business transaction, I need your assurance of 
discretion. I assure you that with my present position in the office I will be able to transfer 
this money to foreign account of which you can provide assurance that this money will be safe and 
well guided pending my arrival in your country for distribution of the fund. I will destroy all 
documentation of this transaction at my office immediately after the transfer, thus leaving no 
trace to any place. I will use my position and influence to guarantee legal approvals and transfer 
of this fund to your account with the appropriate clearance forms according to the ministry for 
foreign exchange.

Please reply quickly so I will inform you the next steps to relinquish these funds immediately. 
Send also your private TELEPHONE NUMBER when replying for immediate communication. I agree that 50% 
of the total fund will be for you in respect of the provision of a foreign account and for your 
cooperation in the transaction and 50% would be for me. I look forward to your earliest reply 
through my Private email address or you can call me on my private telephone number as I stated 
below for more detail, 

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. David Ogadimma.
