Very Uegent Attention,

Please permit me to introduce my humble self to you, my name is Mr. Austen I.N. Obigwe,I am the 
Executive Director of Corporate and International Banking with Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, I 'm 
38yrs old, and I got your email address from a friend of mine, and my confidence reposed on you. 
I hope you read this message carefully and reply me immediately. Although we have not met before,  
but I suggest that this transaction will bring us together.

My dear, we had a customer, a foreigner but base here in Nigeria, his  Name was Mr. Hamilton Creek.
He is from Atlanta Georgia United State of America, but based here with his wife and his two 
children, Mr. Hamilton has being banking with us for the past 4yrs and some time  in  August 2002, 
Mr. Hamilton was on his way to his house, and unfortunately ran into a Trailer load  of Groundnut 
Oil, and died   immediately, Their car got burnt, no single soul was saved, Mr. Hamilton Creek and 
His entire family was confirmed dead.

My Board of Directors and the Management of Union Bank has mandated  and  instructed me to look for 
Mr. Hamilton Creek? relation(s) and his Next of Kin to come and claim his fund, Since August 2003 
Till date, I have been looking for his relation's or his next of Kin to come and claim his fund 
which he Deposited with our bank, I have contacted his Embassy and after 3days,  his Ambassador 
told me that Mr. Hamilton Creek has no relation and no next of Kin, their Ambassador told me that 
he used his first son as His next of kin, but it is quite unfortunate that Mr. Hamilton Creek Died  
with all his family members.

The reason why I contacted you is thus, Mr. Hamilton is dead, and his  only  son who supposed to 
inherit  his properties and money also died With him. As at this moment, nobody  or person[s] is 
coming to   claim this Money from our bank. The Board of Directors and management  of our bank told 
me that if nobody or person[s] apply for the claim of Mr. Hamilton Fund, the bank will return the 
entire Fund into our Federal reserve. In the Light of the above, I want you to stand as  the next 
of kin to Late Mr. Hamilton Creek, it might interest you to know that he had a Domiciliary Bank 
Account with our Bank and he has a total sum of US$9.2M Nine Million Two Hundred Dollars,  this is 
the exact amount which he had in his domiciliary account before the ugly incident occurred, and  
this money is still in his account as unclaimed money.

This transaction is very easy and simple, and it is 100% risk free, I'm the Executive Director for 
International Relations with Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, and the Management and Board of Directors 
of the Bank are waiting for me to provide to them the Relation or next of Kin  to late Mr. Hamilton 
Creek, of which I told them that I am still searching the next of kin to the deceased. Finally, if 
you are interested with this transaction, I will front you to the bank as the only next of kin to 
late Mr. Hamilton Creek, and I will let the bank know that you are the only right person to inherit
Late Mr. Hamilton Funds and properties. If you are interested, just email me and late Mr. Hamiltons 
Funds will be credited into your  account and all his Properties will be released to you either 
through Courier Services or the Bank  will Cargo all his properties to you in any were you want it.

So reply me immediately and feel free to ask any question with regards  to this transaction. You 
will take 50% of the US$9.2M. Which is? US$4.600, 000.00 Four Million Six Hundred Thousand Dollars, 
while the Balance of the same amount will be mine.

Your swift response will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Friendly Regards

Mr. Austen I.N. Obigwe
