AUSTEN I. N.OBIGWE. BRANCH MANAGER, UNION BANK OF NIG. PLC. Dear Friend, I am DR. AUSTEN I. N. OBIGWE, the Western District Manager, Union Bank (NIG.) PLC. However, there is an account opened in this bank in 2001 and since then,no body has operated this account again. And after careful investigation,I discovered that the owner of this account was a foreigner who died in 2003. His name was Mr.Wendy Bunten ,the account has no beneficiary at present and investigation has proved that the owner has no beneficiary for the account. The total amount in this account is US$20.9M (Twenty Million,Nine hundred thousand United States Dollars Only). In light of the above,I therefore solicit your assistance to provide a well maintained account that can accommodate this fund. The management is ready to welcome anybody preferably a foreigner who has the correct information of the account which I will give you immediately, if you indicate your willing ness to handle this project with me. Now, the management of the bank has ordered that all dormant accounts will be frozen. On the strength of this order,I wish to make advantage of this situation and present you as the beneficiary of this fund and get it transferred to your designated account. On the receipt of your positive response,I shall apply for annual leave for our face to face meeting in your country. SHARING RATIO:I will compensate you with 40%of the total money for your assistance,but this percentage is negotiable. If this offer contends with your approvals,kindly drop me an email.Please include your name,age,occupation,country,phone number and fax (a copy of your identity card) to enable me speak with you orally for more clarification.
