From: The Manager, UNION BANK OF NIG PLC, Lagos Branch Nigeria Dear Friend, My name is Tony Salako I am the Manager of the Union Bank of Nigeria. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of 6.750 Million Dollars. This fund is part of the excess of what my branch made last year as profit. I have already submitted an approved End of the Year report for the year 2009 to my Head Office here in Victoria Island Lagos and they will never know of this Excess. I have since then, placed this amount of 6.750 Million Dollars on a SUSPENCE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary. As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am compelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me and my team. I do need to stress that there is practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer, please send the follwoing request or information to me such as your full name, your office or house address,telephone and fax number, your age and your occupation to my private email box.You may also call me on my direct line 234-709-119-7086 for more discussion. Thank You With regards, Tony Salako
