Mr. Adebola Micheal,
234 Victoria Street, Victoria Island,
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 November 1 1999.
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 maintenance of the Nigeria
Liquefied 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
practitioner here in my Country in your favor for the funds to be released
in your favor as the beneficiary's next of kin.
It may interest you to know that I have been given 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 treasury account.
Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual
business endeavor by furnishing me with the following;
1. Full name.
2. Contact address
3. Mobile/Cell phone
4) Fax numbers
5) Brief information on your profile, this should include your age and
marital status These requirements will enable me submit your details with
the Bank as the rightful next of kin of this customer before we embark on
the acquisition of the necessary approvals in your favor for the immediate
release of this fund into your account.
I shall compensate you with 45% of the total money while 5% will be for any
expenses incurred, the rest will be mine on final conclusion of this
Please note that your share stays while the rest shall be for me for
investment purposes.
Forward your response with the requested details to this my confidential
