National Credit Bank Plc
Plot 1675 Oyin Jolayemi Street,
P.O. Box 73018
My name is Mr,Amos Adamu.,
The manager, National Credit Bank Plc. I am writing in respect of a foreign
customer of my bank with account number 14-255-2004/utb/t who perished in a
plane crash on August 6, 2001.
Since the demise of this our customer,I personally has watched with keen
interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come
to claim his funds of usd.20.5 m, [Twenty million five hundred thousand united
states dollars] which has been with my branch for a very long time.
On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of
kin as no one has come up to be the next of kin. And the banking ethics here
does not allow such money to stay more than seven years, because money will be
recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed after this period. In view
of this I got your contact through a trade journal after realizing that your name and
country is similar to the deceased.
I will give you 45% of the total.Upon the
receipt of your response,name and address, I will secure all covering papers
and documents to show you are the bonafide next of Kin and the next step to
take. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free
and that you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer
into an account provided by you preferably with a zero balance can be
finalized within five banking days, after approval from my bank endorsing you as
the next of kin.
When you receive this letter. Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your
decision including your private Tel/Fax numbers for quick communication.
Mr, Amos Adamu.
