My name is Mr olakunle Raji I am the operational manager in account section, in charge of credit and foreign bills of one of the prime banks here in NIGERIA. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who perished with his whole families on 25TH JULY, 2000 CONCORDE PLANE CRASH [Flight AF4590] with the wholepassengers aboard. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm There is an account opened in this bank in 1999 by this great late INDUSTRIALIST. Since his death, I personally, have watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds and no other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his death he was the manager of his company. The total amount involved is $16,000,000.00 USD. [Sixteen million United States Dollar]. We wish to start the first transfer with $6,000,000.00[Six million] and upon successful transaction without any disappointment from your side; we shall re-apply for the transfer of the remaining balance to your account. I have secretly discussed this matter with the managing director of my bank, who I must involve in order to have a smooth and a successful transfer of the fund to any foreign bank account which you are going to nominate. On this note, I decided to seek for a reliable foreigner who will act as the foreign beneficiary of the fund from the deceased by providing his/her bank account where the fund will be transferred into for immediate investment on any viable project as no one has come up to be the next of kin. The banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than 15 years without claim hence the money will be recalled to the government treasury as unclaimed after this long period of dormancy. In view of this I got your contact through our foreign offshore financial centers to see if you can assist by providing your safe bank account for the transfer or find a reliable person who will be capable of receiving such amount in his or her personal account. At the conclusion of the transfer 50% of the fund will be for us here, we would give you 35% of the total transfer sum, 10% for charity both in Africa and in your country while the remaining 5% will be set aside to settle expenses both parties might incure during the transfer process. This transaction is totally free of risk and trouble as the fund is a legitimate fund which does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you detailed information about the transaction. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is 100% risk and trouble free and that you should not entertain any fear after you apply to the bank as the beneficiary of the fund from the deceased. Please send your Name and private phone number for easy communication so will can discuss the modalities and process to claim the fund as next of kin to the deceased. Best regards, Mr. olakunle Raji
