From: Mr. Henry Osita The Manager Credit and Foriegn Bills United Bank for Africa Plc Victoria Island Lagos-Nigeria. E-mail:henry_osita@sapo. pt Attention: Sir/Madam, My name is Mr. Henry Osita, the Manager Credit and Foreign bills of United Bank for Africa Plc. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our bank with account number 14-255- 114 whose name is Late Mr. Morris Thompson, an american by citizen who perished in a plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site which I got during my investigation; http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ and Since the demise of this our customer, I personally has watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of US$15.5M (Fiftheen Million Five Hundred Thoudsand United States Dollars) which has been with our branch for a very long time. On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin as no one has come up to be the next of kin. And the banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than Ten Years, because the money will be recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed fund after this period. In view of this I got your contact through a trade journal when i was making a research on a foreigner i will use in this great upportunity. For your assistant i will give you 20% of the total amount then 10% has been maped out to donate to the motherless baby home, while the remaining 70% will be for me and my partner. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you by fax or e-mail the letter of application which you will type sign and send back to our bank to enable us start this transaction.I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and easy transfer of this fund has been finalized, this transaction will be complited within five banking days of recieving your response, after you apply to the bank as a relation to the deceased. When you receive this letter. Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your decision including your private Tel/Fax numbers for quick communication. Yours Sincerely, Mr. Henry Osita, Manager Credit and Foriegn Bills, United Bank for Africa Plc.
