I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business. Though, this medium (Internet) has 
been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest medium 
of communication. However, this correspondence is unofficial and private, and it should be treated 
as such.
At first I will like to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk and trouble free to both 
My name is MR. IHUKA JAMES,I work as the personal manager in account management section in charge 
of credit and foreign bills of one of the prime banks here in Nigeria. On a routine inspection I 
discovered a dormant domiciliary account with a Balance Of S$48,223,000. 00 (Forty eight million 
two hundred and twenty three thousand U.S dollar). On further discreet investigation, I also 
discovered that the account holder has died long ago with his family on a plane crash leaving no 
beneficiary to the account and no other person knows about this account.
I am in close contact with the manager of the bank here who is my partner and he is willing to 
approve the transfer to any reliable and trustworthy foreigner with foreign bank account because 
the former operator of the a/c is a foreigner and from Australia in particular. I am certainly sure 
that he has no written or oral WILL attached to the account, no beneficiary and nobody will come 
again for the claim of this money. It is only a foreigner who can claim this money with legal 
claims to the account holder, which I will provide to you if you are interested, therefore I need 
your cooperation in this transaction. The difference in country of origins is not a hindrance to 
the success of this transaction. This money will remain useless in this dormant account if I did 
not transfer the fund out to a foreign account.
I will provide the necessary information and documents needed in order to claim this money. I only 
need your cooperation as a foreigner to provide your safe bank account information for the 
transfer. All arrangement that will ensure a smooth transfer of the fund to the account, which you 
are to nominate, is already in place. You should also provide me with your direct phone lines for 
easy communication. I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction.
At the conclusion of this transaction, your share will be 30% of the total transfer sum, 60% for my 
partner and me while 10% will be set aside for any expenses both parties might incur during the 
process of the transfer. The fund will be transferred to your account in two parts. I will first 
transfer $20USD Million to your account. I will fly over to meet you after the successful transfer 
for sharing according to the agreed percentages. I will have the remaining balance of USD$28,223 
Million transferred to your account only after the successful sharing of the first transfer without 
any disappointment from your side.
Let me hear from you URGENTLY.
