FROM MR.WILLIAMS EKE.
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT UNION BANK PLC
FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA
I am highly delighted to be in contact with you and sorry for the embarrassment
this mail might be to you as we have not met or known each other before.
Firstly,Let me introduce myself. My name is Mr. Williams Eke, I am the auditing
and accounting officer of Union Bank Plc ...I got your contact over the
Internet in my search for the relatives of one of our numerous customers who
died alongside with his family in anair crash. During the routine check in my branch, I
discovered an abandoned sum of Twelve million Five hundred united states
dollars,(USD$12.5m). in an account belonging to an expatriate customer Mr.Lynn
Roy, a mining consultant/contractor with one of the leading oil company in
Federal Republic of Nigera before his accidental death on Saturday 4Th May2002 in
Nigeriavia the ill-fated
EAS Airline crash.
Ever since then, valuable efforts have been made to get to his people but to no
avail, as he had no known relatives and more so, he used his wife's name as his
next of kin in his account opening forms. I have been expecting his relatives
to come over to claim his money as it cannot be claimed unless somebody applies
officially for it as his next of kin as indicated in our banking guide but no
avail. Unfortunately, I discovered that his supposed next of kin (his wife and
children) died with him over theplane crash incident.
Over the years, I decided to look for the necessary papers relating to the
deposit in order to make business out of it as the deposit was made in my
branch. Now that all papers are ready, I am asking for your assistant to
release the money to you as his relation/next of kin for safekeeping and
subsequent disbursement. I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make
any one apprehensive but I am assuring you of the Security of us all as
modalities have been perfected for a swift and smooth operation.
You are being contacted because Since nobody showed up for his money and I
don't want it to go back intoFederal Republic Of Nigeria accountas unclaimed bill when the next audit
is conducted. The banking law and guideline here stipulates that such money if
remain unclaimed, will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed
effect. The request of a foreigner to act as next of kin in this business is
occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a citizen ofFederal Republic
Of Nigeria cannotstand as
next of kin to a foreigner. I am ready to negotiate the mode of sharing with
you. I will visit your country for the disbursement/investing of my share
according to the percentages we shall agree upon after the successful transfer
of the money to your account. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this
transaction is 100% hitch-free and that there is absolutely no risk in it,
having concluded the modalities for a smooth operation and my position in the
bank guarantees its successful execution.
All I require is your honest co-operation, a guarantee of your sincerity and
capability to enable us conclude this deal. Note however that the sensitive
nature of this transaction demands that you have to keep it absolutely confidential.
Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this letter if you
do not appreciate this proposition.
Thank you very much for your time.
Trusting to hear from you immediately,

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.
And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we
hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
