Barrister Bayo Abiodun chambers. 1445, victory street,Victoria Island. Block 67, flat 15. Victoria Island Lagos. Dear Sir/Madam, Permit me to use this wonderful oppurtunity to introduce to you a lucrative business proposal hoping that you are a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important business. I am Barrister Bayo Abiodun,a consulting auditor of United Bank For Africa Plc, here in Nigeria. On June 23,2004,an American Mining consultant/contractor with the Nigeria Mining corporation, Mr.Michael Browne made a numbered time (fixed)deposit for twelve calendar months,valued at US$20,200,000.00. On maturity, The bank sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month,The bank sent another reminder and finally his contract employers,the Nigeria Mining corporation wrote to inform the bank that Mr.Michael Browne died from an automobile accident,that he died without MAKING A WILL, and all attempts by the American Embassy to trace his next of kin was fruitless. Therefore,i made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Michael Browne was an immigrant from Jamaica and only recently obtained American citizenship. He did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank deposit paper work. This money totaling US $ 20,200,000.00 is still floating in my bank as dormant Account. No one has ever come forward to claim it, and according to Nigeria banking policy,after 5 years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Nigeria Government if the account owner is certified dead. This is the situation, and my proposal is that I am looking for a foreigner who will stand in as the next of kin to Mr.Michael Browne,and a Bank Account abroad will then facilitate the transfer of this money to the beneficiary/ next of kin. This is simple, all you have to do is to immediately send me a bank account anywhere in the world for me to arrange the proper money transfer paperwork. This money total USD ($20.2M) will then be paid into this Account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for!me, 35 % for you and 5% to defray all expenses that will be incured in the cause of the transaction both from your end and mine. This is 100% risk free in that all the paper work for this transaction will be acquired which will establish you as the only next of kin and beneficiary to Mr.Michael Browne deposit at the bank which is guaranteed. If you are interested, please reply immediately through my personal email sending the following details to my personal email: (1)Full names: (2)private phone number: (3)current residential address: (4)Occupation: (5)Age and Sex: Please maintain the utmost confidentiality which this demands and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. I look forward to your earliest reply true this email:( Best Regards, Barrister Bayo Abiodun.
