Dear Friend,
I am Mr. Sam Eze. I am working as a Branch Manager with the  * UBA* UNITED BANK OF AFRICA, Apapa. 
For your information, there was one Japanese business merchant that based here. His name is Mr. 
Toshio Kuzito. He had a fishery company here. He was banking in my branch and I was directly in 
charge of his account because he could not speak English fluently and requested that he want me as 
the branch manager to be directly responsible for his account. As the custodian of his account, he 
entrusted most of his banking documents in my care to safe-keep for him in our strong room. He 
lodged the sum of Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars in a fixed bonded 
investment account to run for Ten years from 1996 to 2007. Mr. Toshio disappeared without any 
information for a long time.

 I thought that he has gone back to his country Japan to be back this year when his fixed deposit 
investment will mature but upon maturity of his fixed Deposit bonded investment nobody saw him, the 
management at our head office insisted that I must fetch him to claim his invested money with the 
accrued interest. I traced his address as written in his banking documents only to discover that 
he, his wife and only daughter died in the plane crash of 2002. From my search, I discovered that 
Mr. Kuzito was among those that died in a plane crash involving EAS Airline on the 4th of May 2002. 
For your reference on this air accident, please click here.

The person now occupying his residence revealed to me also that the government sold the house to 
him and also sold his fishery company and handed over the money they realized from the two sales to 
Japanese Embassy here. I have reported to the Management of our bank that Mr. Toshio is dead and 
the Management of our bank has insisted that I must provide any relative of Mr. Toshio to claim his 
money. The Management of our bank said that I was the person that introduced Mr. Toshio to our bank 
and as such that I must provide any of his relative to claim his investment. The Management of our 
bank threatened that if I don’t provide any relative of Mr. Toshio in six months, that they will 
transfer the money of Mr. Toshio to Federal Government Reserve account for ammunition importation 
for the military. 

Based on the above information, I have decided to link anybody to stand as Mr. Toshio’s next of kin 
to claim the money he deposited in our bank as Fixed Investment since it is obvious now that nobody 
knew about it. Do not worry that you are not Japanese because you can still stand as Mr. Toshio’s 
next of kin under our banking laws here. Relative or Next of Kin as our bank interprets represents 
adopted persons, In-laws, friends, business associates and so on so you don’t need to worry about 
not having any relationship with Mr. Toshio. I will provide you with the investment documents which 
Mr. Toshio entrusted in my care for safe keeping. Since the Management of our bank is not aware 
that I am in possession of Mr. Toshio’s relevant documents, if you present it to them, they will 
have no doubt that you are indeed close to Mr. Toshio.

Note that there is no risk involved in this transaction, as I will give you all information you may 
need for the successful execution of this deal with me. I contacted you in trust because I don’t 
have any foreign friend due to the fact that I have not traveled abroad before. This transaction 
will go through normal banking process. I will direct you on how to apply for the claim of this 
money to our head office as soon as you indicate you interest. I hope to resign from this banking 
job as soon as we complete this deal to come over to your country for investment of my share. We 
shall share this money equal between two of us as soon as we complete the deal.
Mr. Sam Eze.
