Tel: +234 8022757715 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Good day, Courtesy of Business opportunity, I take liberty anchored on strong desire to solicit and crave your indulgence to make this project request for a joint business transaction which is of mutual beneficial and risk free transaction with you and I hope will not come to you as a surprise, hence I plead for your pardon. I am Mr. Yusuf Adams, the Auditing and Accounting Unit, Foreign Operations Department Union Bank Of Nigeria, Plc. I have an urgent and confidential business proposal for you. On June 6th, Engr. Steve Moore made a numbered time (Fixed Deposit) valued at US$15,500,000.00 (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in my branch, on maturity I sent a routine notification to his forwarded address but got no reply after months we send a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employee (Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation) that Late Engr. Steve Moore died from an automobile accident, on further investigation it was clear that he died without making a will. All attempts by the Australian Embassy to trace his next of kin were fruitless. His personal lawyer made me it know that Late Engr. Steve Moore did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents including his deposit document in my bank. The total sum of US$15,500,000.00 is still in my bank as dormant account. According to Nigerian banking law and procedures herein stipulates that any account abandoned or dormant for a period of some years is subjected to be closed and all money contained therein will be forfeited to the Government Treasury Account as “Unclaimed Bills”. Now it is being speculated that the above sum will be transferred into Government Treasury Account as unclaimed funds on or before April 2007 as long as the account owner is certified death and nobody comes forward to claim it. The reason for you to present your good self as the next of kin in occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner. Mode of sharing after the successful completion of the transfer is as follows, for the role you will be expected to play in the whole exercise, we have agreed to give you thirty (30%) of the total sum, and 10% has been set aside for expenses we are going to encounter by all parties in the process of this transaction and the remaining 60% shall be for me and his personal lawyer. There is no risk involved. I and the lawyer are going to use our position and connection to do all the document work for the transaction and I shall obtain all necessary documents and letter of administration in your favor for this transfer. This transaction is risk free guaranteed, if you are in support of the aforementioned, you are urged to reply this letter indicating your readiness and interest to participate in the business. After you reply, you will be advised on the next step forward, and be advised to send these details below for us to proceed with. 1. FULL NAME 2. CONTACT ADDRESS 3. TEL/FAX NUMBER 4. MOBILE NUMBER 5. AGE 6. OCCUAPATION 7.
