Dear Sir/Madam, Iam contacting you in respect of our late customer, Mr. Mike D. Hodge. The former regional contractor with Nospecto Oil and Gas Limited. He died in an auto crash on May 4th, 2001 with his wife and two children. Before his death, He deposited the sum of US$5.6M (Five Million, Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in his account with our Bank. All my efforts to locate his legitimate relations or next of kin as his account officer since he died has been unsuccessful as he did not mention any in all the documents he tendered to our Bank. As the account officer, I have been mandated by the management of my bank to present the beneficiary next of kin to late Mr. Mike Hodge within fourteen (14) banking days or the fund will be reverted to the treasury as unclaimed deposit. It is on the strength of this mandate that I solicit for your permission by using your name as the beneficiary next of kin to late Mr. Hodge and transfer this money into your bank account before the time given to me elapses. I have all the legal documents that can be used to back up this claim in your favour and protect you from any breach of the law. You will be compensated with 30% of this fund for your assistance, 20% will be set aside for expenses that may be incurred in the course of this transaction while you keep 50% safely for me. This transaction is risk free, strictly private and must be treated with utmost confidentiality. Please contact me through the above email address with your telephone and fax numbers indicating your acceptance of this offer. Further informations regarding this transaction will be communicated to you on receipt of your response. Please expedite action. Sincerely yours, Morgan A. Kuku, Customer Services, Union Bank Plc.
