From: Mr.Jibrin Isah. African Development Bank PLC. 35, Portman Square, Enugu, Nigeria. Email: email@example.com Websites:http://www. afribank.com Dear Friend, Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Jibrin Isah, In charge of Treasury and Financial Institutions of my Bank, African Development Bank PLC. I have an obscured business suggestion for you. One of our accounts with a holding balance of Money Valued USD$35,000,000.00 (Thirty Five Million Dollars Only) has been dormant and has not been operated for the past six years.
Also Information from the National Immigration stated that he was also single on entry into the Country. I have secretly discussed this matter with some of the bank officials and we agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. In fact we could have done this deal alone but because of our position in this country as civil servants,we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and that would eventually raise an eye brows on our side during the time of transfer since we still work in this bank, this is the actual reason why we required a second party or fellow who will assist us forward claims as the next of kin with informations which will be made available to you. This transaction is totally risk and trouble free as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drugs, money laundering, terrorism or any other illegal act. The sharing of the fund between us, is as follows; 40% of the total sum will go to you for your effort and commitment to the success of this transaction. 60% for me and my colleague's. Forward your reply to firstname.lastname@example.org Best Regards, Mr.Jibrin Isah.
