LAGOS, NIGERIA.                         CONFIDENCIAL
Dear Friend,
Compliment of the season to you, I do sincerely hope you are fine. My name is Dr. George Philips, an English Accounting Consultant and also an Account Manager with one of the respected and notable banks in the Nigeira. I hope my e-mail meets you well as we have actually been searching for any possible link or semblance with an individual that shares the same last name as one of our late private clients.
As the Accounting Administrative Manager of the African Development Bank, a merger bank, here in the Nigeria, During the yearly preliminary in-house auditing of accounts, I discovered that a US$ domiciliary check-in account opened in October 1991 has been together with the audit manager, we decided to investigate this account for more information. We discovered that the owner of this account, a foreigner & contractor with the Transport Department, died in year 1997, leaving no heirs or next of kin whatsoever.
Presently, we are only two people in our organization with access to this information and we have decided to keep it that way and claim the money for ourselves using a third party who we will present as the next of kin to the deceased . We will supply the necessary information on the deceased and ensure that the claim application is given immediate approval. Documents like the death certificate and the Next-Of-Kin Bio data form will be arranged by us and forwarded to you for onward submission to the bank in order for you to officially file for these funds under the auspices of an inheritance claim.
The project is risk-free, as we will use contacts that hold strategic positions in the bank to effect a successful completion of the project and also ensure that all traces of our mutual involvement are completely wiped off. This presents no problem, as all documented evidence will be under my supervision directed. It is important we claim these funds for ourselves immediately since such kind of time deposits automatically reverts to the Government in the 5th year of dormancy, as stipulated by the Financial Act of 1987.
We have earmarked a commission of 35% of the total amount for you, 5% will be set aside to cover expenses on both sides, and 60% for us. Should you be interested in this transaction, please furnish us with 1) Full Names, 2) Date of Birth, 3) Residential Address, 4) Telephone and Fax Numbers. I will sure be contacting you soon enough.
Thanks once more for your co-operation.
Dr. George Philips.
