*NOTE THAT THIS TRANSACTION IS GENUINE !!!!
FROM: DR.AKILO J.ADAMS,
AUDITING AND ACCOUNT UNIT,
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT,
FIRST BANK NIGERIA PLC, MARINA BRANCH.
I am Dr.AKilo J. Adams the director in charge of auditing and account section of FIRST BANK NIGERIA PLC, with due respect and regard, I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.
During our investigation and auditing in this bank In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.5 million in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. GASKI DAIRO who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatives to come over and claim his money because the Bank cannot release the funds unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.
Unfortunately I learn that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this department now decided to do business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill.
Note:my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand-in as the next of kin to Late Mr. GASKI DAIRO and remember that this fund can only be claim by the help of a foreigner that is the main reason i am contacting you.
We have been able to move the funds out of the bank to a finance and security company here in Nigeria. We agreed that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, while the balance will be for me and my colleagues. I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account.
Please be honest to me and trust is our watchword in this transaction.
Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this mail you should contact me through this e-mail address:firstname.lastname@example.org by return mail whether or not you are willing to enter into this deal. In the event you are not interested, I sincerely ask that you disregard this email and tell no one about it. I am very careful on truncating my banking career should you mention this to someone else. I hope you can be trusted in this
regard.Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been finalized. We will discuss much in details when I
do receive your response.Please in your response include the following:
1) Your Telephone and fax number for a better communication between us.
If you are interested, please reply immediately and call me on +234-8033082448 for more information.
God bless you.
Thanks and regards,
Dr.AKilo J. Adams
