Union Bank Plc joint venture with u,
Dear Sir,

Coupled wth my deep interest to invest in your country, I decided to contact and solicit your 
mutual assistance at all cost. I am Chief.Mrs.GLORIA LANSANA., Branch Manager, Union Bnk Plc. In 
May 6th 2002, One Mr.P. Lopez, A Brtish National, a consultant/contractor with the Federal Ministry 
of Mines and Power made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit, valued at US$18,000,000.00 (Eighteen 
Million US Dollars), for twelve (12) calender months in my Bank branch. Upon maturity, we sent a 
routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder 
and finally we discovered from his contract employers that Mr.P. Lopez died from an automobile 

His sum of US$18,000,000.00 is still in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the 
principal sum at the end of each year. No one has come forward for the claim.Now Union Bank has 
issued out a notice that if no one comes for claim within 60 working days the account will be 
confiscated. Consequently, I want to present you to stand as the next of kin to Mr.P. Lopez so that 
the money will be paid to you, you and I can share the money,which you have to promise me that you 
will never disappoint me as soon as the money get into your account.

It behooves on you to suggest the pecentage you will be given for your assitance. All I require is 
your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed 
under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. 

There is no risk involved as I will use my position as the Bank Branch Manager to secure approvals 
and guarantee the successful execution of this transaction and it will take us 14 working 
days.Please you must observe utmost confidentiality if this proposal interest you, please reply me 
immediately and include your private phone number for voice contact and your banking information. 
You should please respond immediately.
