With great pleasure I Mr. Gray Jackson, Manager of a Bank (name upheld)is w= riting you in respect of a foreign customer an Oil consultant/contractor wi= th the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation,Engr.Lee Seunghyo made a num= bered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at US$25,000,0= 00.00 (Twenty-five Million Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but = got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered f= rom his contract employers, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation that= Engr.Lee Seunghyo died in Korean Air Flight 801, which crashed in Guam on = August 1997 with other passengers onboard. I therefore made further investig= ation and discovered that Engr. Lee Seunghyo died without making a WILL, and= all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.Also, he did not decla= re any next of kin or relations in all his official documents,including his= Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.This sum of US$25,000,000.00 is still si= tting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal s= um at the end of each year. Since the demise of this our customer, I have personally watched the account= with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as n= o one has come to claim his FIXED DEPOSIT fund of USD.$25million, [Twenty f= ive million United States Dollars] which has been with my branch for a very = long time. Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has come f= orward to lay claims for this money asthe heir. A member of our government trade delegation to your country gave your impec= cable profile to me. Hence I have decided to seek your co-operation in this= business deal due to the sensitivity of this transaction. It may interest y= ou to know that I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money = cannot be approved to a local Bank account here, but can only be approved t= o a foreigner with an account since the money is in US Dollars.

Lee Seunghyo as No one has ever come forward to claim this fund.

I want you to co-operate with = me so that the fruits of this man's labour will not get into the hands of = some unsrupulous corrupt government officials if NOT CLAIMED now. I have se= cured from the probate an Order of Madamus to locate any of deceased enefic= iaries. Hence I am contacting you with this proposal. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and = address,Date of Birth, Occupation,Tel & Fax Numbers so that the Attorney wi= ll prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in pla= ce as the next of kin.
