From: Felix Osakwe The Manager Credit and foriegn Bills Regent Bank Nigeria Plc Victoria Island, Lagos-Nigeria. Attention: Sir/Madam, My name is Mr, Felix Osakwe, the Manager Credit and Foreign bills of Regent Bank Nigeria Plc. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our bank with account number 14-255-114 whose name is Late Mr. Morris Thompson, an american by citizen who perished in a plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2003, including his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site which I got during my investigation, http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ Since the demise of this our customer, I personally have watched with keen interest to see his next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of $15.5M (Fiftheen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which has been with our branch for a very long time. On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin as no one has come up to claim of being his next of kin. And the banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than Ten Years, because the money will be recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed fund after this period. In view of this I got your contact when I was making a research on a foreigner I will use in this great opportunity. For your assistance I will give you 30% of the total amount then 10% has been maped out for any expences that may occur, while the remaining 60% will be for me and my partner. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you by fax or e-mail the letter of application which you will type sign and send back to our bank to enable us start this transaction. 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 the smooth and easy transfer of this fund has been finalized, this transaction will be complited within ten banking working days of recieving your response, after you apply to the bank as a relation to the deceased. When you receieve this letter. Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your decision including your private Tel/Fax numbers for quick communication. Send your response to my confidential email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Yours Sincerely, Mr, Felix Osakwe, Manager Credit and Foriegn Bills, Regent Bank Nigeria Plc.
