Hello, I am contacting you through your email account because of the urgent need to keep this discussions private and confidential between us. I will first introduce myself, I am Ms. Lisa LILY, presently working with a Oceanic Bank here in Nigeria. I supervised the establishment and management of a Bank account for the Late Pope John Paul II which was used to support his charity and philantropic works covering Africa. Since the demise of the late Pope John Paul II the bank account has remain inactive & dormant due to inactivity. You can view this CNN website for details on the death of Pope John Paul II on the 2nd of April, 2005:- The bank account which is operational via telephone banking has a closing balance of US$25 Million has remained abandoned and as at this time, it is over two (2) year since the demise of Pope John Paul II and the vatican (Catholic) church in Rome has not made any attempt OR enquiry of this account because from my knowledge the account beneficiary name is that of the late Pope John Paul II. It is therefore upon this note that I now decided to make this proposal for the transfer of the total sum starting with US$25 Million into your nominated bank account. Rev. Fr. James Blank is the only person who knows about this account apart from the bank. The management of the bank have planned to embezzle the money since there is no one to claim the money. All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above mentioned sum US$25 Million so as to have the Bank transfer the funds to you. On this note, I now decided to give you the money so that you can give it to the needy. I will soon proceed for my retirement leave, and I personally do not want this fund to be lost to the bank. That is why I wanted the fund to be move out of the bank before I proceed on my retirement from the banking services. I have decided that you take all the money and deliver it to the needy and some to churches, am a very good Christian and will not watch the bank embezzle the money belonging to the needy, it is not a good idea and I can't involve my self in that kind of evil plan. Upon confirmation of your acceptance & readiness to conclude the transaction with me, I will provide you with more details. You should contact me immediately to state your readiness along with your private Phone number, Fax number including full details of the beneficiary bank account to be used. I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction as my job and the future of my family would be jeopardized if it were breached. I want to assure you that the transaction is without risk if due process is followed accordingly as i would advice. Please note that you may appear in person if you like, as every thing regarding this project will be strictly handled by a lawyer and every banking documents needed for this transaction will be taken care of by lawyer. Expecting your immediate response. Yours sincerely Ms. Lisa LILY Oceanic Bank PLC.
