FROM THE DESK OF: APOLLOS IKPOBE ZENITH INTERNATIONAL BANK PLC My name is Apollos Ikpobe, I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank (ZENITH INTERNATIONAL BANK PLC)with account number 14-255-2004/ZIB/t who perished in a plane crash Korean Air Flight. Since the demise of this client customer, 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 of USD$.30 m, [Thirty million United States dollars] which has been with my branch for a very long time. On this note, I decided to seek for a foreigner who I can present as the next of kin hence 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 twelve Banking years, after which the money will be call into the bank treasury as unclaimed funds. In view of this I got your contact from a business contact enquiry. I will give you 25% of the total. Upon the receipt of your response, I will commence on manipulating your information into the file as the next of kin and I will send you information on how we intend to actualize our objective in a legal manner. 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 can be finalized within five banking days, after your claim is established as the certified next of kin to the deceased. When you receive this letter, kindly send me your private Tel/Fax Numbers for effective communication . Thanks. Awaiting your favourable response. Yours truly, APOLLOS IKPOBE
