My name is Mr. Phillip Onugha, I know this proposal will come to you as a surprise because we have not met before either physically or through any correspondence. I have no doubt in your ability to handle this proposal involving huge sum of money. THE SUBJECT: A Foreign Customer ( German property magnate -Andreas Schranner) who died along with his entire family on 25th day of July 2000 in a plane crash shortly after the Concorde plane took off from Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport in FRANCE, has substantial amount of money deposited in this bank- UNION BANK. For more information on MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER'S Death, Check BBC News on--http://news.bbc.co. uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm Since his death, as his accounts Officer, I have made frantic efforts to locate any of his relative, because of his deposit with our Bank. Till date nobody has showed up to lay claim of his deposit. The Banking guidelines/ laws here in my Country stipulates that if any customerâs account remains unserviceable or dormant, and unclaimed after seven years, the amount will be transferred into the Bank treasury account with the apex bank of my country for government use. As a Banker I know what happens to such funds, the Executive Directors, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of this bank and top government officials will share it amongst themselves and send down memos to us for reconciliation of the deceased bank account. THE PROPOSAL: My request of a foreigner in this business is occasioned by the fact that an Indigene of My Country cannot stand as next of kin/ beneficiary to a deceased foreigner. It is therefore on this premise that I seek your cooperation to stand as a relative to Late MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER. As an Insider it is easy for both of us to provide all relevant Information/documents that will authenticate the Claim of this money in your favour as the only surviving relative to the late MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER. Note that your Physical presence is not needed at the Bank, I will Guide you on the Steps to take. The Bank will only ask for verifiable Documents which we both shall provide. In All Fairness I am willing to share the money with you on an Agreed Terms. For your Information, I have done my home work very well, before embarking on the process of moving this fund out of the bank through a Next of Kin/ beneficiary to the Late MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER. The Funds is much that no right thinking person can afford to let such opportunity pass him by. If you are ready to work with me, provide me immediately with your contact details.
