Please Read Carefully & Understand .

I am Mr Paul Allen, an Accounts officer with the UBA bank. The issue I am presenting to you is a 
case of one of my late customer, a US national who died in a plane crash leaving an unclaimed 
treasury bills (Bonds) with my bank. 

In 2003, my late customer invested in treasury bill bonds here in my Bank totalling USD$ 5.8 
million USA Dollars ($5,800,000.00) which was due to be collected in 2007 with accrued dividends. 
On my yearly appraisal of my customers at the turn of every year, I discovered that this fixed 
deposit remained overdue for retrieval. I had put up series of mails and bank notifications to him 
which were sent back uncollected. I later discovered that he passed on along with his wife and all 
of his family in a tragic air crash in June 2003. 

Since his death in 2003, I have managed his account expecting any of his extended relatives to come 
forward to claim his money but all attempts to trace his relatives over the years has been 
fruitless since he did not declare any of his relative's information in his banking records with 
us. Added to this, professional ethics obligates us to act with extreme confidentiality when 
dealing with clients accounts of this type.
According to the banking law, the money will be bequeathed to the government if it remains 
unclaimed after 7 years.

However, I don't belong to that school of thought who proposes that the fortunes of unlucky people 
be given to the government and I am fully convinced that no one would turn up to execute the letter 
of Administration to claim his funds,hence I decided to contact you to come in as the next of kin 
to my late customer so that the funds totalling $5,800,000.00 can then be transferred to your 
nominated bank account in your country within 10 working days after we have filed in your claims 
transfer application to the bank.

Again, I feel that you may be apprehensive and consider this amount too big for you to defend. It 
does not matter, as there are documents to back it up. This transaction is risk free and as an 
account officer with the bank, you can be rest assured that all documents to enable you get this 
fund as the next of kin will be carefully worked out. Do not be bothered that you are not related 
in any way to my late customer as I am in position to affix your name as the next of kin.

I need not emphasize the confidentiality of this issue and I therefore appeal to you not discuss 
this request with anybody, even if you decline to take full advantage of this great and urgent 
opportunity in my bank.

I look forward to your quick reply 


Mr Paul Allen
