Dear Sir/Madam, My name is Mr.John Eze, i work in the credit and accounts department of African Express banking in co-operation,Lagos, Nigeria. I write you in respect of a foreign customer with Domiciliary A/C number 2590074169. His name is Mr Erick Board. He was among those who died in a plane crash here in Nigeria during the reign of late General Sani Abacha. Sir,since the demise of this our customer, Mr Erick Board , who was an oil Merchant/contractor, I have kept a close watch of the deposit records and accounts and since then nobody has come to claim the money in this a/c as next of kin to the late Mr Erick Board. He had only $28.5 mllion in his a/c and the a/c is coded.It is only an insider that could produce the code or password of the deposit particulars. As it stands now, there is nobody in that position to produce the needed information other than my very self considering my position in the bank. Based on the reason that nobody has come forward to claim the deposit as next of kin, I hereby ask for your co-operation in using your name as the next of kin to the deceased to send these funds out to a foreign offshore bank a/c for mutual sharing between myself and you. At this point I am the only one with the information because I have removed the deposit file from the safe. By this doing, what is required of you is to send an application laying claims of the deposit as next of kin to the late Mr Erick Board. I will need your full name and address,company or residential, so that i can computerize them to tally with next of kin column in the certificate of deposit. Finally i want you to understand that the request for a foreigner as the next of kin is ocassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and for that reason alone a local cannot represent as next of kin. When you contact me, then we shall discuss on how the money will be split between us. Trusting to hear from you, I remain. You can call me on this number: 234-803-683-5020 . Respectfully yours, Mr. John Eze
