Dear Sir/Madam,
REQUEST FOR URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue of it?s nature as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL.
I am Mr Barry Mike a member of Board of Directors of UNION BANK PLC Lagos. I came to know of you in my private search for a reliable and reputable  person to handle this confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a Foreign Bank Account requiring maximum confidence.
THE PREPOSITION The Late Engineer MARK JOHNSON, Lebanese national and  an oil merchant/contractor with the Federal Government of Nigeria, until his death three years ago in a ghastly air crash, banked with us here at the  UNION BANK PLC, Lagos, and had a closing balance of USD20,000,000.00 (Twenty Million Dollars) which the bank now unquestionably expect it to be claimed by MARK JOHNSON?S next of kin or alternatively be donated to a Charity Organisation here.
 Efforts have been made by the UNION BANK, to get in  touch with any of the JOHNSON?S family but to no avail. It is because of the perceived impossibility of not being able to locate ENGR MARK JOHNSON?S  next of kin that the management under the influence of our Chairman Board of Directors, Major General Kalu Ike Kalu who has agreed that since the incident occurred in 1998 and has left the fund dormant and devalued, we should transfer the fund overseas and utilize it either on stock exchange market or personal business interest.
Your role is very important as the fund when concluded on transfer will be justifiably presented as having been remitted to the next of kin which is assumed to be you. Your interest will be protected as unnecessary documentation will be avoided and adequate percentage scheduled for mutual benefit.
1. Account holder
20% (foreign Partner)
2. Nigerian Partner 80% (Nigerian Partner)
You are required to contact me immediately by return mail. Be informed that all parties interest should be protected in terms of confidentiality.

Note that all modalities necessary for the transfer of fund have been perfected and the transaction is 100% risk free.
Awaiting your prompt response whether accepted or not.
Mr Barry Mike
