Ecobank Nig. Plc. 
Lagos, Commercial Bank

Victoria Island, Lagos.
Dear respectful one,

I am Martins Obaseki Jr, Credit Officer Of Ecobank Of African (West African) Nigerian Plc.

I am the Senior Manager Of Bills and Exchange At The Foreign Remittance Department Of My Bank. I 
Have An Urgent And Confidential Business Proposal For You. On 6, June, 1998.An Australian Oil 
Consultant/Contractor With Via National Petroleum Cooperation (NNPC) Mr. Ali B. Ashraf Made a 
Numbered Time (Fixed) Deposit For twelve Calenderer Month Valued at US$51,000,000.00(Fifty _One 
Million Us Dollars) In My Branch. 
Upon Maturity, I Sent A Routine Notification To His Forwarded Address But Got No Reply after Months 
We Send A Reminder And Finally We Discovered From His Contract Employee (Nigeria National Petroleum 
Corporation) That Mr. Ali B. Ashraf Died From An Automobile Accident. On Further Investigation, It 
Was Clear That He Died Without Making A Will.

All Attempts By The Australian To Trace His Next Of Kin Were Fruitless. I Therefore Made Further 
Investigation and Discovered That Mr. Ali B. Ashraf Did Not Declare Any Next Of Kin or Relations in 
All His Official Documents Including His Deposit Document in My Bank. The Total Sum 
US$51,000,000.00 Is Still In My Bank as Dormant Acct. 

No One Will Ever Come Forward To Claim It. According To Nigerian Banking Law,After Five Years, The 
Money Will Revert To The Ownership Of The Nigerian Government. Such Funds Will Revert To the 
Ownership of the Nigeria Government for Financing Military Operations,Such As Purchasing Of Arms 
and Ammunitions for the Military. If The Account Owner Is Certified Death And Nobody Comes Forward 
To Claim It. This Is the Situation, And My Proposal Is That I Am Looking for foreigners who will 
stand in as the Beneficiary/Next of Kin. This Is Simple.

In Order to Avert This Negative Development, I Will Like To Seek For Your Permission as a Foreigner 
To Stand As The Next Of Kin To Mr. Ali B. Ashraf So That The Fruits Of This Old Man's Labor Will 
Not Be Use For Financing Weapons Which Will Further Enhance The Courses of War in the World in 
General. All You Have To Do Is To Immediately Send Me the Details of a Bank Account Anywhere In The 
World For Me To Arrange The Proper Money Transfer Document. The Money Will Then Be Transferred Into 
the Account for Us to Share in the Ratio Of 50% for Me 40% for You While the Remaining 10% Will Be 
Set Aside For Expenses Incurred With Here And There. 

There Is No Risk Involved. I Am Using my position and Connection in the Bank here to do all The 
Document Work For The Transaction. We Shall Employ the Services of an Attorney To Draft The Will 
And Obtain All Necessary Documents And Letter Of Administration In Your Favor For The Transfer.

This Transaction Is Risk Free Guaranteed. If You Are Interested, I Will Send To You The Text Of The 
Application That You Will Send To The Ecobank Trust Bank Authority For An Approval To submit Your 
Claims.Send You’re Reply through My Direct and Private Email Address ( 
Indicate Your Direct Fax and Telephone Numbers for Effective Communication That This Transaction 
Needs. Do Not Reply Through The Ecobank Email Address Because It Belongs To The Senior Staffs For 
Public Use.

Please Note That You Are Not to Appear in Person, As Every Thing Regarding This Project Will Be 
Strictly on Documentations and Every Banking Documents Needed for This transaction will be taken 
care of by my self. 
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Awaiting Your Urgent Reply.
