An American Oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months,valued at US$10,500,000.00 (Ten Million Five hundred thousand Dollars)with African Development Bank since the year 2000. Ever since then,a routine notification has been sent several times to him, without reply. In 2003, I discovered from his contract employee, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation that my client is dead. Unfortunately, was a victim of the AF4590 German Concorde plane that crashed in France. On further investigation the entire family was in the plane, and no declaretion of inheritance on the deposit made to the Bank. I have made several research since 2003 till December last year, to reach any of his relation or family member for claim, without success. Sad enough, some miscreants have taken possession of the deceased property and Estate lately. Now the management of the African Development Bank is planning to confiscate the fund by the end of this quarter, since the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum for many years. Hence, am empowered legaly and constitutionaly to relate to the deceased relatives; I want you to stand in as the next of Kin to the deceased since you bear the same surname with him, for us to save the fruits of the old man's labour before it get to the hands of this corrupt selfish people with their nefarious deeds, whose interest is to confiscate this fund. As soon as you consent to this request, I will immediately employ the service of a lawyer to notarize the WILL and obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor of you for the transfer of the fund to your Bank account. You will receive; 45% of the total sum as compensation,base on your good intention to help me secure the fund in your account. I would also like to use 5% of the fund to rasie a reputable charity home or Foundation in the name of the deceased.My position here as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.
