FROM THE DESK OF DR. ISA AKABA
MANAGER AUDINTING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT.
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA)
This letter must come to you as a big surprise, please kindly accept my apology for sending unsolicited mail to you I believe you are a highly respected personality considering the fact that I sourced your profile from a human resource profile database on your country. But please kindly delete this mail from your mail box if you are not interested. I am Dr. Isa Akaba currently Auditing and Accounting Unit Manager with a reputable bank here, Bank Of Africa (BOA).I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you.
The Business I am proposing to you is in respect of the sum of US$5,500,000.00(Five Million Five hundred Thousand Dollars only) deposited in a Dollar account with my bank which belonged to Late Mr.Adreas Schranner from Germany who unfortunately lost his life in AF4590 plane crash on July 31st 2000, including his wife. You shall read more about the crash by visiting this website;
My bank has made several efforts in contacting the family of Late Mr.Adreas Schranner or his relatives, but all effort have proved abortive as he had no identifiable kin's men. This sum of US$5.5m has remained unclaimed ever since then and nobody has come forward as his next of kin. The management under the influence of our chairman and member of the board of Directors has made an arrangement for the fund to be declared 'UNCLAIMABLE' and subsequently be turned to the reserve account of the bank. It is against the background of the foregoing, that i have decided to contact you for assistance and partnership, for you to stand as the next of kin to Late Mr.Adreas Schranner.
Because the banking law and guidelines here stipulates that if the next of kin or relative of the deceased customer apply for the fund it will be released and transferred without delay. With your permission this fund will be transferred to your private account abroad as the beneficiary and next of kin to Late Mr.Adreas Schranner
All proof of claim and necessary documentation will be carefully worked out in your favour and I assure you of 100% risk free involvement and protection. Consequently, if you find this proposal acceptable to you and you wish to assist me, I expect your urgent response. Note that on the transfer of this fund into your account, 35% will be your share in respect of the account provision and your assistance rendered during the transfer of the fund into your account, 55% will be my share being the coordinator and the pillar of the transaction while the rest 10% will map out in case of any expenses that may occur during the transfer process.
Please endeavour to include your full name and address, private phone and fax number for our easy communication. Please keep our dealings very private and confidential. As I await your urgent response.
Thank you and best regards.
