Dear Friend, 

I am Mr. Stephen Osu senior manager accounts/audit department, in global bank of Nigeria Plc. ENGR. 
GEORGE GREEN, who was a contractor with Shell-development Company in Nigeria and a personal friend 
died on 6th june 2004 and left behind his deposit in this bank (GLOBAL BANK OF NIGERIA PLC) valued 
USD 8,5,00,000.

I am writing to seek your cooperation over this business deal. In my department, I discovered an 
abandoned sum of USD 8,500,000 (Eight million Five hundred thousand Dollars) only , in an account 
that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash 
that took place in Kenya, East Africa, the Late ENGR. GEORGE GREEN, a citizen of your country but 
resident here in Nigeria. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next 
of kin to come over and claim his money because it cannot be released unless somebody applies for 
it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but 
unfortunately, all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash 
leaving nobody behind to claim the money.

Therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release 
the money to you via your foreign bank account as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for 
safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and this money Could go into the 
Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Six 
years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request for your 
assistance and maximum co-operation as a foreign citizen to stand as the next of kin in this 
business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner. 40 % of this money 
will be for you as my foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% for 
expenses that will be incurred and 50% would be for me. There after I will come over to your 
country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.

Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to 
the bank as the relation or next of kin to the deceased, indicating your claims and where the money 
will be remitted into.

Upon receipt of your response indicating your willingness to work with me, I will send to you by 
fax or email the contact information of my bank manager which you will use to submit the 
application and I will direct you on how to do that. I will not fail to bring to your notice that 
this transaction is strictly confidential and I will use my position in this Bank to effect a hitch 
free transfer of the fund and that is to say I guarantee that this transaction will be executed 
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law.

Please get in touch with me through my email: and send to me your full name telephone and fax 
numbers to enable us discuss further about this transaction.

Thanks and my regards.

Mr. Stephen Osu
