FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT. UNITED BANK FOR AFRICA PLC. RE: TRANSFER OF ($42,000.000.00 USD). I have the courage to look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important business believing that you will never let me down either now or in future.This mail will definitely be coming to you as a surprise, but I must crave your indulgence to introduce myself to you. I am the Auditor General of one of the Prime Banks here in Nigeria.I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my Bank (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who perished with his whole families on 25TH JULY, 2000. Since his death, I personally have watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds and our bank is ready to release to any foreigner who will come up as the next of Kin to Late MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER, my investigation proves that nobody know anything about is account. The total amount involved is $42,000,000.00USD. At the conclusion of the transfer 65% of the fund will be for us here, we would give you 30% of the total transfer sum, while the remaining 5% will be set aside to settle expenses both parties might incur during the transfer process. I wait in anticipation of your co-operation in reply. Your's sincerely, MR. TONY ELUMELU
