Dear Friend,

I am Michael Uba Branch Manager Union Bank of Nigerian Plc; I have an urgent and very profitable business Proposition for you that should be handled with extreme Confidentiality On January 12, 1997 a Consultant and contractor with the British Water Corporation Mrs. Wendy Bunten by name made a Numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months Valued at US$11.9M (eleven Million, Nine Hundred thousand United States Dollars Only) in my branch.

Upon maturity I sent a routine notification in accordance With the Bank Policies to her forwarding address but got No reply. After a month we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from her contract employers British Water Corporation that Mrs. Wendy Bunten died in the Korean Air Flight {801}, which crashed in Guam, on August 6, 1997.

On further investigation, we found out that she died without making a Will and all attempts to trace her next Of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further Investigations and discovered that Mrs. Wendy Bunten did not declare any next of kin or relations in her entire Official documents including her Bank Deposit paperwork in My Bank. This sum of US$11.9M has been carefully moved out of my Bank to a Financial and Security Company in Malaysia for safekeeping. No one will ever come forward to claim it and according to The Law of Malaysian Government, at the expiration of 15 years, the Money will revert to the Ownership of the Malaysia Government,

If nobody applies to claim the Fund. We decided to contact you to assist me in claiming this money for safe Keeping and investments on her behalf as everything will be taken over by the government as provided in section 129 sub 63(N), Africa Banking Edit of 1961.This prompted us to contact you. We want to front you as the next of kin of our late client thereby making you the

Legal beneficiary of the sum of $11.9 million U.S Dollars Presently I have moved the fund to HSBC security company in Malaysia. I contacted you because it is against the civil service Code of ethics to own and operate foreign accounts and your assistance would be needed to claim the money in the Financial and Security Company. The Transaction is 100% Legal and totally free of risks as all modalities has been Perfected to ensure the hitch free success of the Transaction.
