Lagos State Nigeria.
I am contacting you because of a business concerning a huge sum of money from a deceased deposited in the Bank I work here in Nigeria as an Accounting Officer here in. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day as all arrangement has been well perfected on my side, I actually decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.
I discovered an abandoned deposit with my bank, the account name I shall make known to you in your response, owned by one of the foreign customers of this bank who was involved in a plane crash on Monday Novemer 1 1999, you can read more on this link:
This customer deposited this funds amounting to US$16,000,000.00 (Sixteen million united states dollars), for one year fix deposit on February 1999 with our bank in Nigeria, the file records shows that the funds was actually for a project our late costumer wanted to set up in the year 2000 (a multi million Dollar crude Oil/Engineering plant in Rivers State Nigeria) that will be in control of the maintainance of the Nigeria Liquified Natural Gas (NLNG) before his sudden and untimely death.
Ever since the death of this customer the management has expected the relations or next-of-kin of this customer to come forward and lay claims for this property as the heir, but this has not been since the death of this customer, this is basically the reason why I have contacted you, because this customer is citizen of your Country and as a foreigner my Bank cannot release the property unless someone a foreigner from your country applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our operating guidelines.
Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you guided and presented as the relative and next of kin to the deceased as all documentations will be carefully worked out with the help of a legal practioner here in my Country in your favour for the funds to be released in your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin. It may interest you to know that I have been give two weeks order to produce the next of kin of this client and your country embassy has been contacted without any useful result or this fund will be declared as unclaimed and be transferred into the tresury account.

1. Full name.
2. Contact address
