Good Day my friend,
My name is Dr. Frank Williams, the operations manager of Zenith Bank of Nigeria and am sending you this mail based on trust. Basically the issue I want to unravel to you is very classified and confidential but it involves a huge sum of $35 Million United State Dollars from a deceased foreign customer deposited here in the Bank where I work.
The choice of contacting you is aroused from the geographical nature of where you live, particularly due to the sensitivity of this transaction and the confidentiality
Please I would like to seek your permission to have you stand as the family representative of the deceased to retrieve the funds into your account. I need your urgent co-operation because the Nigerian banking policy and guideline stipulates that any funds belonging to a deceased person for a period of 5years will be transferred into the Bank treasury as an unclaimed debt and I do not want that to happen that is why I needed your assistance.
However, this business will be of immense benefit to both of us and I am privy to all Information that will be use to facilitate the release of the funds to your bank account. So if you are willing to accept my proposal kindly reply my mail with the following
Your Name and Address. Your Next of Kin Name and your date of Birth. Your telephone number and fax and your occupation and finally the banking information in which the money will be transfer into.
Upon the receipt of your reply email with the above listed data, it will enable me apply for the approval from my bank, thereafter percentages and more information will be relayed to you on my next mail.
Dr. Dr. Frank Williams
